dc.description.abstractThe e-linac beam that will serve the ARIEL Electron Target East (AETE) has an energy range from 30 MeV to 50 MeV with a power up to 500 kW. The beam electrons are to be converted into photons by means of an electron-to-gamma converter with the purpose of inducing photonuclear reactions in a target to produce exotic isotopes. In the process of conversion, the primary electron beam power deposition in the converter causes a significant increase of the temperature that must be dissipated. The converter performance contributes notably to the overall isotope production and extraction efficiency. This thesis describes the work to optimize and verify the conceptual design of the electron-to-gamma converter through simulations and experimental measurements.en_US
