2 Captured r/p beam vs target and beam parameters
Realistic 3-D geometry together with material and magnetic field distributions
based on the solenoid magnet design optimization have been implemented
into MARS. Graphite (C) and mercury (Hg) tilted targets were studied. A two
interaction length target (80 cm for C of radius RT=7.5 mm and 30 cm for
Hg of RT=5 mm) is found to be optimal in most cases, keeping RT >2.5 o-,,,
where -,,y are the beam RMS spot sizes. The calculation model (Fig. 1),
keeping the main features of the baseline design [8,9], has been significantly
refined in the course of the study . A deviation of B2 and Br (Fig. 1 (right))
from the ideal field [8,9], results in the reduction of the r/p-yield in the decay
channel by about 7% for C and by 10-14% for Hg targets.
