A linac for the Spallation Neutron Source

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Spallation Neutron Source Project (SNS), to be constructed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, accelerates H{sup {minus}} ions to an energy of 1.0 GeV with an average current of 1-mA for injection into an accumulator ring that produces the short intense burst of protons needed for the spallation-neutron source. The linac will be the most intense source of H{sup {minus}} ions and as such requires advanced design techniques to meet project technical goals. In particular, low beam loss is stressed for the chopped beam placing strong requirements on the beam dynamics and linac construction. Additionally, the linac is to be ... continued below

The linac will be the most intense source of H{sup {minus}} ions and as such requires advanced design techniques to meet project technical goals. In particular, low beam loss is stressed for the chopped beam placing strong requirements on the beam dynamics and linac construction. Additionally, the linac is to be upgraded to the 2- and 4-MW beam-power levels with no increase in duty factor. The author gives an overview of the linac design parameters and design choices made.
