Proton driver

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Over the past year a team in the Beams Division has been working on the proton driver for Fermilab. Significant progresses have been made to reach the Phase 1 design goals. A Phase 1 proton driver consists of a modest improvement of the linac front end, a new 16 GeV synchrotron in a new tunnel and two new beam lines (400 MeV and 16 GeV). It meets the needs of a neutrino factory and can provide a 1.2 MW proton beam with 3 ns bunch length. It also allows an upgrade path to a beam power of 4 MW and ... continued below

Description

Over the past year a team in the Beams Division has been working on the proton driver for Fermilab. Significant progresses have been made to reach the Phase 1 design goals. A Phase 1 proton driver consists of a modest improvement of the linac front end, a new 16 GeV synchrotron in a new tunnel and two new beam lines (400 MeV and 16 GeV). It meets the needs of a neutrino factory and can provide a 1.2 MW proton beam with 3 ns bunch length. It also allows an upgrade path to a beam power of 4 MW and bunch length of 1 ns, which will be required by a future muon collider. In addition to serve a neutrino factory and/or a muon collider, the system would also serve as a complete functional replacement for the Fermilab Booster, providing upgraded capabilities in the future for the programs that the Booster would otherwise have served. New physics programs based on the stand-alone capabilities of the proton driver as an intense source of proton beams would also be enabled. The Fermilab management has scheduled an internal technical review of the proton driver design study on April 17--19, 2000. A complete design report will be due early 2001.
