Intense pulsed neutron source (IPNS-I) accelerator 500 MeV fast kickers

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Two ferrite loaded picture frame magnets with a kick of up to 15 mrad each are used to extract 500 MeV protons from the IPNS-I accelerator to the neutron source target at the Argonne National Laboratory. The magnet aperture is 10 cm wide by 5 cm high and the length is 60 cm. The single bunch extraction requires a magnetic field rise time (0 to 100%) of 90 ns and a flattop of 100 ns. The magnets receive the 3600 A maximum current via an array of 50 ..cap omega.. coaxial cables connected in a shunt arrangement. The two legs ... continued below

Description

Two ferrite loaded picture frame magnets with a kick of up to 15 mrad each are used to extract 500 MeV protons from the IPNS-I accelerator to the neutron source target at the Argonne National Laboratory. The magnet aperture is 10 cm wide by 5 cm high and the length is 60 cm. The single bunch extraction requires a magnetic field rise time (0 to 100%) of 90 ns and a flattop of 100 ns. The magnets receive the 3600 A maximum current via an array of 50 ..cap omega.. coaxial cables connected in a shunt arrangement. The two legs of each magnet are energized with separate lines to keep the potential to ground to less than 40 kV. The system is designed to run at 30 pulses per second repetition rate. The complete system of control electronics, power supply, deuterium thyratron switch, magnet and resistive load will be described along with some of the problems of stray inductances and the techniques used to reduce them.
