An electron linear accelerator for use in industrial material processing, comprises an elongated, resonant, electron accelerator structure defining a linear electron flow path and having an electron injection end and an electron exit end, an electron gun at the injection end for producing and delivering one or more streams of electrons to the electron injection end of the structure during pulses of predetermined length and of predetermined repetition rate, the structure being comprised of a plurality of axially coupled resonant microwave cavities operating in the .pi./2 mode and including a graded-.beta. capture section at the injection end of the structure for receiving and accelerating electrons in the one or more streams of electrons, a .beta.=1 section exit section at the end of the structure remote from the capture section for discharging accelerated streams of electrons from the structure and an rf coupling section intermediate the capture section and the exit section for coupling rf energy into the structure, an rf system including an rf source for converting electrical power to rf power and a transmission conduit for delivering rf power to the coupling section of the structure, a scan magnet disposed at the exit end of the structure for receiving the electron beam and scanning the beam over a predetermined product area and a controller for controlling the scanning magnet and synchronously energizing the electron gun and the rf source during the pulses.
