Abstract

Trajectory calculations have been carried out for secondary electrons emitted on the electrodes and in the interelectrode gaps of inclined-field acceleration tubes. It was shown that a number of trajectories originating in the neighbourhood of the prismatic field sections will be inflected in the paraxial region. Consequently, the corresponding electrons will be accelerated to considerable energies before being stopped by other electrodes. The presence of high-energy electrons in inclined-field tubes was experimentally proved by X-ray measurements around the 5 MV Van de Graaff generator in this Institute. Similar measurements performed with a homogeneous field tube enable us to compare the behaviour of tubes of different types.
