A new type of low-energy ion accelerator has been developed. It includes an eight-storied Disktron generator, newly developed accelerating tubes which hold up to 4 MV/m, both single and tandem acceleration capability, and a compound negative ion source. The Disktron generates 3.2 MV with a dummy load and 2.2 MV with ion beams, and has a voltage stability better than 10-3 at around 1 MV with a corona feedback stabilizer or a generating voltmeter feedback stabilizer only. The highly stabilized voltage of the Disktron has particularly been allowed to form an ion microbeam of about 1-μm diameter.
