Title: All-ion accelerators: An injector-free synchrotron

Abstract

A medium-energy synchrotron capable of accelerating all-ion species is proposed. The accelerator employs a strong focusing lattice for ion-beam guiding and induction acceleration for acceleration and longitudinal capture, which is driven by a switching power supply. All ions, including cluster ions in their possible and arbitrary charge state, are accelerated in a single accelerator. Since the switching power supply employing solid-state switching elements is energized by a trigger signal, which is generated from a bunch monitor signal produced by a circulating ion bunch, the induction acceleration always synchronizes with the bunch circulation. This feature enables the realization of an almost injector-free synchrotron.
