Ultra-Compact, Relocatable, High Brightness 1-5 MeV-Class Linear Accelerator
At less than 2.2 meters long and 350 kg in weight, Centurion™ is an easy-to-deploy, high-energy, high-intensity radio-frequency quadrupole (RFQ) ion accelerator suitable for a range of applications, e.g. neutron interrogation, proton injection, isotope generation, nuclear analysis, etc. Patented innovations in RF power delivery, pulsed ECR plasma source, low-emittance ion injection, high-flux thermal management, high-gradient ion acceleration, and novel fabrication methods enable a powerful, versatile, ultra-compact LINAC with high-brightness output. Sized to fit through a standard door, inside building elevators and transport in cargo van, the Centurion™ is deployable within your existing facility to save engineering time, minimize regulatory burden and lower total cost. The entire system fits on a small cart, uses standard wall power and is air cooled.
Beam energy: 1-5 MeV (3.86 MeV deuterons / 1.93 MeV protons Mk I standard)
Current: 10-50 μA @ 0.6% duty factor Mk I standard
Spot size: 0.5 mm for deuterons / 0.3 mm for protons, at RFQ exit plane
The Centurion™ can be customized for your specific application using our unique fabrication process leveraging additive manufacturing and IMPULSE high-power impulse magnetron sputter deposition. Contact Starfire for a quote or more information.
