Radiofrequency cavity is one of the most critical and complicated components in a cyclotron. Dee voltage of radiofrequency cavity accelerates charged particles to achieve required energy. Peak voltage of Dee is the key parameter of an radiofrequency cavity. Balanced Dee voltage is very important for effective beam cantering and beam extracting. An X-ray measurement has been made to calibrate and verify the peak voltage of Dee in a low-power (~20 kW) test. The X-ray measurement for radiofrequency cavity was designed by means of bremsstrahlung. A suitable shielding cover was chosen for radiofrequency cavity and the X-ray measurement design was demonstrated according to the theory of photon transmission. Finally, the peak voltage of Dee was obtained at the power of 10-20 kW and the balance of Dee voltage was verified.
Key words: cyclotron, radiofrequency cavity, Dee voltage, bremsstrahlung, low-power test
