Abstract
The growth rate of the hose instability may be reduced by tapering the beam radius from head to tail. Generation of such a beam has been achieved by a fast-rising magnetic field with a rise time of 30 ns and a peak field of 1.2 kG. The electron beam has an energy of 1.7 MeV, a current of 1 to 2 kA, and a flattop of 12 ns. The beam radius tailoring is indicated by time- resolved beam-radius measurements, from a scintillator in the beam path viewed by a streak camera.
