Title: RFQ preinjectors

The Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) accelerator has become the method of choice as a preinjector for many proton and heavy ion linacs injecting into synchrotrons, and can be used for injection directly into small synchrotrons. In addition to its use in most new preinjector lines being built or proposed, several laboratories have replaced Cockcroft-Walton accelerators with RFQs. Among the advantages of the RFQ are its simplicity and reliability, compact size, and relatively low cost. The fact that the ion source is located nearly at ground potential is also very advantageous. A survey of operating RFQ preinjectors is given, as well as the status of some RFQ preinjectors which are presently under development. 25 refs.
