Design considerations for the Fermilab test RFQ

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A new concept in low energy proton/ion accelerators is being developed at accelerator facilities throughout the world. This concept is labeled the RFQ linac (Radio-Frequency Quadrupole) and was first proposed by Kapchinskii and Teplyakov and more extensively developed by scientists at Los Alamos, where precise design procedures are being developed and a proof of principle experiment was performed. RFQ design and construction is currently being undertaken by groups at almost every major laboratory in the world (CERN, BNL, LASL, GSI, LBL, INS, Saclay, etc.). We propose that Fermilab also participate in this development, to gain local knowledge in this new ... continued below

Description

A new concept in low energy proton/ion accelerators is being developed at accelerator facilities throughout the world. This concept is labeled the RFQ linac (Radio-Frequency Quadrupole) and was first proposed by Kapchinskii and Teplyakov and more extensively developed by scientists at Los Alamos, where precise design procedures are being developed and a proof of principle experiment was performed. RFQ design and construction is currently being undertaken by groups at almost every major laboratory in the world (CERN, BNL, LASL, GSI, LBL, INS, Saclay, etc.). We propose that Fermilab also participate in this development, to gain local knowledge in this new technology and also to improve the low energy portion of the Fermilab linac. In this note we review current progress in RFQ design concepts and outline design parameters for a Fermilab RFQ. Our first RFQ is planned to be a 200 MHz structure accelerating H/sup -/ from approx. 30 keV (source energy) to 750 keV, and is a possible replacement for the Cockcroft-Walton, as well as a development project.
