Status of a new switchyard design for LANSCE

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Funding was recently received to study modifications of a section of the LANSCE beam switchyard. At present, the switchyard is used to deliver a proton beam to experimental Area A and an H{sup {minus}}-ion beam down Line D. The total H{sup {minus}} repetition rate is 120 Hz, 100 Hz is transported to the Weapons Neutron Research (WNR) area. The remaining 20 Hz is injected into the Proton Storage Ring (PSR). In order to provide H{sup {minus}} beam to other experimental areas without interfering with the PSR operations, a new design of the switchyard is in progress. The authors are presently ... continued below

In order to provide H{sup {minus}} beam to other experimental areas without interfering with the PSR operations, a new design of the switchyard is in progress. The authors are presently investigating a solution that would use pulsed kicker magnets to deflect a fraction of the WNR H{sup {minus}} beam down a separate existing beam-line at the demand of the experimenters.
