Title: 33.7 MHz heavy-ion radio frequency quadrupole linac at VECC Kolkata

Abstract

A 33.7 MHz heavy-ion radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) linear accelerator has been designed, built, and tested. It is a four-rod-type RFQ designed for acceleration of 1.38 keV/u, q/A{>=}1/16 ions to about 29 keV/u. Transmission efficiencies of about 85% and 80% have been measured for the unanalyzed and analyzed beams, respectively, of oxygen ({sup 16}O{sup 2+}, {sup 16}O{sup 3+}, {sup 16}O{sup 4+}), nitrogen ({sup 14}N{sup 3+}, {sup 14}N{sup 4+}), and argon ({sup 40}Ar{sup 4+}). The system design and measurements along with results of beam acceleration test will be presented.
