BEAM DYNAMICS SIMULATIONS IN THE RAPID CYCLING MEDICAL SYNCHROTRON.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Rapid Cycling Medical Synchrotron (RCMS) accelerator is under conceptual design at BNL. We report the results of the beam dynamics studies in the current design RCMS ring lattice with simulation program ORBIT++. In this paper, the designed RCMS ring lattice, the important physical parameters and the simulation program employed in this study are overviewed. The major elements and the numerical parameters included in the simulations are listed and discussed. The evolution of longitudinal beam properties, such as bunch length, bunch height and particle distributions, under RF voltage ramping are studied. The simulation results of the 6D beam dynamics during ... continued below

In this paper, the designed RCMS ring lattice, the important physical parameters and the simulation program employed in this study are overviewed. The major elements and the numerical parameters included in the simulations are listed and discussed. The evolution of longitudinal beam properties, such as bunch length, bunch height and particle distributions, under RF voltage ramping are studied. The simulation results of the 6D beam dynamics during acceleration including phase space and emittance evolution are presented. Finally, the space charge effects such as tune shift and emittance growth in the RCMS ring are investigated and discussed.
