Elise plans and progress

Description

Elise is a heavy ion induction linear accelerator that will demonstrate beam manipulations required in a driver for inertial fusion energy. With a line charge density similar to that of heavy ion drivers, Elise will accelerate a {ge} 1 gs beam pulse of K{sup +} ions from an initial energy of 2 MeV to a final energy {ge} 5 MeV. In the present design, the Elise electrostatic quadrupoles (ESQ) will have a 2.33 cm radius aperture operating at {+-}59 kV. The half-lattice periods range from 21 cm to 31 cm. The entire machine will be approximately 30 m long, half ... continued below

Description

Elise is a heavy ion induction linear accelerator that will demonstrate beam manipulations required in a driver for inertial fusion energy. With a line charge density similar to that of heavy ion drivers, Elise will accelerate a {ge} 1 gs beam pulse of K{sup +} ions from an initial energy of 2 MeV to a final energy {ge} 5 MeV. In the present design, the Elise electrostatic quadrupoles (ESQ) will have a 2.33 cm radius aperture operating at {+-}59 kV. The half-lattice periods range from 21 cm to 31 cm. The entire machine will be approximately 30 m long, half of that is the induction accelerator and the remaining half is the injector (including the Marx generator) and the matching section. Elise will be built in a way that allows future expansion into the full ILSE configuration, therefore it will have an array of four ESQ focusing channels capable of transporting up to a total of 3.2 A of beam current. Elise will also have an active alignment system with an alignment tolerance of less than 0.1 mm. Initially, only one beam channel will be used during nominal Elise operation. At the currently expected funding rate, the construction time will be 4.75 years, with FY95 being an extra year for research and development before construction. Total project cost is estimated to be $25.9 M including contingency cost.
