OPERATIONS OF THE LEDA RESONANTLY COUPLED RFQ

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The LEDA RFQ is a 350-MHz continuous-wave (CW) radio-frequency quadrupole linac. LEDA is the low energy demonstration accelerator, a full power front-end prototype for the accelerator production of tritium (APT) linac. This machine has accelerated a 100-mA CW proton beam from 75 keV to 6.7 MeV. The 8-m-long RFQ accepts a dc, 75-keV, {approximately}110-mA H{sup +} beam from the LEDA injector, bunches the beam, and accelerates it to full energy with {approximately}94% transmission. Output beam power is 670 kW. This RFQ consists of four 2-meter-long RFQs joined with resonant coupling to form an 8-meter-long RFQ. The resonant coupling improves the ... continued below

The resonant coupling improves the stability of both the longitudinal and transverse RF-field distribution in this long RFQ.
