Operational experience with the Fermilab Linac

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Fermilab 200-MeV Linac has been in operation for nearly 22 years as a proton injector to the Booster synchrotron. It presently accelerates H[sup [minus]] ions to 200 MeV for charge-exchange injection into the Booster and to 66 MeV for the production of neutrons at the Neutron Therapy Facility. The beam intensity is typically 35 mA with pulse widths of 30 [mu]sec for the Booster for high energy physics and 57 [mu]sec for NTF at a maximum of 15 pulses per sec. During a typical physics run of nine to twelve months, beam is available for greater than 98% of ... continued below
