A vacuum tube for the acceleration of charged particles is described. The total acceleration of the ions takes place in a distance of 18 inches although the total height of the tube is about 14 feet. It has been used at one million volts peak a.c. with target currents of 5 ma of electrons and 0.2 ma of positive ions.
