Beam collimation system for a 16 GeV proton driver

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

It is shown that with the appropriate lattice and collimation design, one can control beam loss in the 16 GeV Fermilab Proton Driver. Based on detailed Monte-Carlo simulations, a 3-stage collimation system is proposed which consists of primary, secondary and supplementary collimators located in a special 60 m long injection section along with a painting system. It allows localization of more than 99% of beam loss to this section with only a 0.3 W/m (on average) beam loss rate in the rest of the machine. As a result, beam loss and induced radiation effects in lattice elements can be reduced ... continued below

As a result, beam loss and induced radiation effects in lattice elements can be reduced to levels which are defined as acceptable.
