  • There has been a recent study at Los Alamos of an upgrade to the LAMPF-PSR linac/accumulator-ring facility for a next generation pulsed neutron spallation source providing 1 MW of average beam power. The 800 MeV H{sup {minus}} beam from the linac must have a chopped structure with approximately 200 ns beam-free segments every 600 ns. This is necessary so that the stacked beam in the ring will not be lost, producing high radioactivation, when the fast extraction magnet is turned on. The required chopping is most easily done at sufficiently low energies, where the beam is easily deflected, and beammore » powers are not too large, but high enough so that space-charge blow-up of the beam can be controlled with adequate focusing. LAMPF presently uses a traveling-wave beam chopper at 750 keV, before injection into the drift-tube linac. In the new linac design a radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) linac will bunch and accelerate the high-intensity H{sup {minus}} beam from 100 keV to 7 MeV. A new low-energy chopper must be designed to operate either at the 100 keV injection energy, or at the 7 MeV extraction energy to the IGQ. In this paper the authors present a concept for a three-stage 7 MeV, beam-chopper system that deflects, collimates, and restores the high-intensity beam from the RFQ to the nominal beam axis. The beam-optics design is presented, together with numerical simulations of the beam bunches, corresponding to different conditions with respect to the deflecting waveform.« less
  • Recirculating Linear Accelerators (RLA) are an efficient way of accelerating short-lived muons to multi-GeV energies required for Neutrino Factories and TeV energies required for Muon Colliders. To reduce the number of required return arcs, we employ a Non-Scaling Fixed-Field Alternating-Gradient (NS-FFAG) arc lattice design. We present a complete linear optics design of a muon RLA with two-pass linear NS-FFAG droplet return arcs. The arcs are composed of symmetric cells with each cell designed using combined function magnets with dipole and quadrupole magnetic field components so that the cell is achromatic and has zero initial and final periodic orbit offsets formore » both passes’ energies. Matching to the linac is accomplished by adjusting linac quadrupole strengths so that the linac optics on each pass is matched to the arc optics. We adjust the difference of the path lengths and therefore of the times of flight of the two momenta in each arc to ensure proper synchronization with the linac. We investigate the dynamic aperture and momentum acceptance of the arcs.« less
