Design and Development of the LEDA Slow Wire Scanner Profile Measurement

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Low Energy Demonstration Accelerator (LEDA) [1, 2] is being developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory as part of the Accelerator Production of Tritium (APT) project. One of the diagnostics being developed to commission LEDA [3] is a slow wire scanner beam profile measurement. Initial profile measurements will be made at 6.7 MeV beam energy and 100 mA beam current. The wire scanner is an interceptive device that will move two silicon carbide coated graphite mono-filament fibers (wires) through the beam, in order to obtain the profile. Some of the design considerations discussed are; Mechanical design, wire temperature analysis, secondary ... continued below
