  • Content Description: The first conceptual design of the FFAG for ASPUN was an 1100-MeV, 20-sector machine with an injection radius of 17.5 m and an extraction radius of 18.75 m. The conceptual design currently under study has a higher extraction energy, a larger average radius, but still has 20 sectors. The current interest in higher extraction energy is stimulated by calculations that indicate that the useful neutron production per incident proton is still increasing proportionally up to 1500 MeV. The larger radius also matches existing buildings at Argonne that could be made available for the facility. 11 refs., 4 figs., 3 tabs.
