Recent performance of the TRIUMF cyclotron and status of the facility

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In December 1994, TRIUMF celebrated 20 years of operation. The peak intensity has been increased over the years to the present level of approximately 200 {micro}A on beam line 1A. Polarized beam currents in excess of 20 {micro}A are available although most users prefer lower intensity, higher quality slit-tailored polarized beams. The cyclotron simultaneously extracts three beams: one at 500 MeV for meson production, a lower intensity beam on beam line 4 for nuclear physics, nuclear chemistry, or astrophysics experiments, and a low energy beam (65--120 MeV, from a few nA up to 100 {micro}A) on beam line 2C for ... continued below

Description

In December 1994, TRIUMF celebrated 20 years of operation. The peak intensity has been increased over the years to the present level of approximately 200 {micro}A on beam line 1A. Polarized beam currents in excess of 20 {micro}A are available although most users prefer lower intensity, higher quality slit-tailored polarized beams. The cyclotron simultaneously extracts three beams: one at 500 MeV for meson production, a lower intensity beam on beam line 4 for nuclear physics, nuclear chemistry, or astrophysics experiments, and a low energy beam (65--120 MeV, from a few nA up to 100 {micro}A) on beam line 2C for isotope production or proton therapy. The yearly total integrated extracted beam current is now in the order of 600 mAh per year. Beam delivery is in excess of 5,000 hours per year with beam availability consistently around 90%, serving as many as 8 experimental stations simultaneously. An additional simultaneous extraction line is planned for the new ISAC facility. With the present polarized beam current capability, the operation of polarized beams for the beam line 4 experiments will be possible simultaneously with the operation of the ISAC facility up to levels of 20 {micro}A, 500 MeV, on target. Recent facility developments will also be reported.
