Proton Beam Verification using RF Power Measurement Data for a cw Radio Frequency Quadrupole LINAC

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A cw radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) LINAC section and klystrode based rf system was obtained from the Chalk River Laboratories and was recommissioned at LANL to conduct demonstration proton beam experiments in support of a spallation neutron source driver for tritium production. A variation of the Low Energy Demonstration Accelerator (LEDA) proton injector, modified to operate at 50 keV, was mated to the RFQ and was operated to support the high current (up to 100 mA), proton beam advance studies for the Accelerator Production of Tritium (APT) program. Detailed measurements and calibrations of the RFQ at both low and high ... continued below

Detailed measurements and calibrations of the RFQ at both low and high power provided the corroborating data to other available beam measurements for verification of the accelerator design.
