Abstract : The Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute LINAC is a traveling microwave type high-energy linear electron accelerator, which accelerates electrons to sufficient energies and in sufficient quantities to provide radiation fields of interest for radiobiological, radiochemical, and materials/ component research. It provides radiation researchers with a source of high- energy electron or high-energy bremsstrahlung (X ray) radiation. This report gives details on the LINAC's design, operation, and capabilities.
