Particle-in-cell simulations of the high current experiment

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The particle-in-cell code WARP has been used to simulate beam dynamics for the intense ion beam of the High Current Experiment. First a study was done of the dynamic aperture of the alternating-gradient electrostatic quadrupole lattice of the experiment, including nonlinearity due to image forces and imperfections of the focusing lattice field. It was found that particle loss, rather than emittance growth, determined the usable aperture. Simulations of transport in the High Current Experiment were then performed, and the results compared to measured data. We present the results of both of these studies.
