SC driver linac for a rare isotope facility.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An ion linac formed of superconducting rf cavities can provide a multi-beam driver accelerator for the production of nuclei far from stability. A multi-beam driver supports a wide variety of production reactions and methods. This paper outlines a concept for a 1.3 GV linac capable of delivering several hundred kilowatts of uranium beam at an energy of 400 MeV per nucleon. The linac would accelerate the full mass range of ions, and provide higher velocities for the lighter ions, for example 730 MeV for protons. The accelerator will consist of an ECR ion source injecting a normally conducting RFQ and ... continued below

Description

An ion linac formed of superconducting rf cavities can provide a multi-beam driver accelerator for the production of nuclei far from stability. A multi-beam driver supports a wide variety of production reactions and methods. This paper outlines a concept for a 1.3 GV linac capable of delivering several hundred kilowatts of uranium beam at an energy of 400 MeV per nucleon. The linac would accelerate the full mass range of ions, and provide higher velocities for the lighter ions, for example 730 MeV for protons. The accelerator will consist of an ECR ion source injecting a normally conducting RFQ and four short IH structures, then feeding an array of more than 400 superconducting cavities of six different types, which range in frequency from 58 to 700 MHz. A novel feature of the linac is the acceleration of beams containing more than one charge state through portions of the linac, in order to maximize beam current for the heavier ions. Such operation is made feasible by the large transverse and longitudinal acceptance provided by the large aperture and high gradient which are characteristic of superconducting rf cavities.
