ILC Baseline Alternative: The Marx Modulator

| 1 March 2007 The release of the ILC Reference Design was a very important milestone. Yet, we have emphasised that it is really a snapshot of the ILC design. -- By Barry Barish & Ray Larsen Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

From SLAC Today: ILC’s Marx Modulator

1 February 2007 The current design for the International Linear Collider (ILC) requires 576, 10-megawatt klystron tubes to supply microwave power along its 40 km linear accelerator. Each ILC klystron tube needs 120,000 volt, 140-ampere pulses, fired at a rate of five pulses per second. Each pulse delivers a total energy of more than 23 kilojoules—the kinetic energy of a 20 millimeter cannon shell. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,
