Low energy improvements to the Fermilab 400-MeV linear accelerator

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Improvements in the Fermilab operating 400-MeV linear accelerator injector are required to achieve the beam intensity and emittance requirement of the Proton Driver design study [5]. It has been determined that these requirements can be achieved by replacing the components in the Linac below 10 MeV. An improved H{sup {minus}} ion source with an electrostatic transport to a two-section Radio-Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) accelerator, with the RFQ sections separated by a magnetic five-dimensional phase-space imaging system as used in an earlier Fermilab/SAIC PET Project, and a new 10-MeV drift-tube linac cavity have been studied. It appears possible that an H{sup {minus}} ... continued below

It appears possible that an H{sup {minus}} intensity of 4.5 x 10{sup 13} ions per pulse with an improvement in beam emittance from the present system can be achieved with the proposed changes.
