RFQ Parameter Choice by Multi-Parameter Optimization  [PDF]
Boris I. Bondarev,Alexander P. Durkin
Physics , 2000,
Abstract: Experts in different accelerator laboratories accumulated wide experience in RFQ designing. Nevertheless new tasks on high-power, high-energy CW linac designing (for example, for ADT applications) were appeared recently. Such accelerators must be practically free of beam losses. This main condition placed more stringent requirements upon beam quality at the input of each linac part. Because RFQ is used as beginning part in above accelerators beam high-quality requirements is related to RFQ primarily. It means that existing experience in RFQ designing must be enriching by new approaches and new methodology

Abstract: Fermilab is developing a Proton Improvement Plan (PIP) to increase throughput of its proton source. The plan addresses hardware modifications to increase repetition rate and improve beam loss while ensuring viable operation of the proton source through 2025. The first phase of the PIP will enable the Fermilab proton source to deliver 1.8e17 protons per hour by mid-2013. As part of this initial upgrade, Fermilab plans to install a new front-end consisting of dual H- ion sources and a 201 MHz pulsed RFQ. This paper will present beam studies measurements of this new front-end and discuss new beam instrumentation upgrades for the Fermilab linac.

Journal of Electromagnetic Analysis and Applications (JEMAA) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jemaa.2010.29068
Abstract: The physics design of a 3 MeV, 30 mA, 352.2 MHz Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) is done for the future Indian Spallation Neutron Source (ISNS) project at RRCAT, India. The beam dynamics design of RFQ and the error analysis of the input beam parameters are done by using standard beam dynamics code PARMTEQM. The electromagnetic stu-dies for the two-dimensional and three-dimensional cavity design are performed using computer codes SUPERFISH and CST Microwave Studio. The physics design of RFQ consisting of the beam dynamics design near the beam axis and the electromagnetic design for the RFQ resonator is described here.
Funneling with the Two-Beam RFQ  [PDF]
H. Zimmermann
Physics , 2000,
Abstract: New high current accelerator facilities like proposed for HIDIF or ESS require a beam with a high brilliance. These beams can not be produced by a single pass rf-linac. The increase in brightness in such a driver linac is done by several funneling stages at low energies, in which two identically bunched ion beams are combined into a single beam with twice the frequency current and brightness. Our Two-Beam-RFQ funneling experiment is a setup of two ion sources, a two beam RFQ, a funnel deflector and beam diagnostic equipment to demonstrate funneling of ion beams as a model for the first funneling stage of a HIIF driver. The progress of the funneling experiment and results of simulations will be presented.

Physics , 1999,
Abstract: There are applications, which require MeV-range multiple-beams consisting of a large number of identical highly packed beamlets. The multiple-beam RFQ (MB-RFQ) arranged as a matrix array of longitudinal rod-electrodes is appropriate candidate. A configuration of MB-RFQ resonator should ensure identical quadrupole fields in every accelerating channel. The MB-RFQ resonators based on TEM transmission lines are studied. The resonators are designed by a periodical multiplication of a 4-rod unit cell in transverse direction. To understand fields of resonator the normal mode technique is applied. Novel configurations of MB-RFQ resonators based on these normal modes are generated. The RF properties of resonators are verified with computer simulations done with MAFIA code. Beam dynamics study for the initial 400-keV MB-RFQ has been performed using PARMTEQ code. The MB-RFQ parameters and the results of beam dynamics simulations are presented. The calculated beam transmission is 33% at injection of 50-keV, 20mA deuteron beam.
Determining Phase-Space Properties of the LEDA RFQ Output Beam  [PDF]

Physics , 2000,
Abstract: Quadrupole scans were used to characterize the LEDA RFQ beam. Experimental data were fit to computer simulation models for the rms beam size. The codes were found to be inadequate in accurately reproducing details of the wire scanner data. When this discrepancy is resolved, we plan to fit using all the data in wire scanner profiles, not just the rms values, using a 3-D nonlinear code.

Physics , 2015,
Abstract: The development and production of radio frequency quadrupoles, which are used for accelerating low-energy ions to high energies, continues since 1970s. The development of RFQ design software packages, which can provide ease of use with a graphical interface, can visualize the behavior of the ion beam inside the RFQ, and can run on both Unix and Windows platforms, has become inevitable due to increasing interest around the world. In this context, a new RFQ design software package, DEMIRCI, has been under development. To meet the user expectations, a number of new features have been recently added to DEMIRCI. Apart from being usable via both graphical interface and command line, DEMIRCI has been enriched with beam dynamics calculations. This new module gives users the possibility to define and track an input beam and to monitor its behavior along the RFQ. Additionally, the Windows OS has been added to the list of supported platforms. Finally, the addition of more realistic 8 term potential results has been ongoing. This note will summarize the latest developments and results from DEMIRCI RFQ design software.

Abstract: A 5-MeV RFQ designed for a proton current up to 100-mA CW is now under construction as part of the High Intensity Proton Injector project (IPHI). Its computed transmission is greater than 99 %. The main goals of the project are to verify the accuracy of the design codes, to gain the know-how on fabrication, tuning procedures and operations, to measure the output beam characteristics in order to optimise the higher energy part of the linac, and to reach a high availability with minimum beam trips. A cold model has been built to develop the tuning procedure. The present status of the IPHI RFQ is presented.

Abstract: The Peking University Integral Split Ring Radio Frequency Quadrupole(ISR RFQ) accelerator was constructed in 1999 with a high duty factor 16.7% and repetition frequency 166Hz, and it was able to accelerate N+, O+,O-, C+ and He+ from 1.6kev/u to 65keV/u. It was later upgraded as an injector of the Separated Function RFQ (SFRFQ). The experiments indicated that the maximum accelerated O+ beam current could exceed 3.2mA with energy 1.03MeV and an energy spread (FWHM) 3.1%. Then the beam transports through a 1m-long magnetic triplet to the entrance of SFRFQ and is finally accelerated to 1.64MeV. The beam conditioning of RFQ were carefully optimized to satisfy the requirements of the SFRFQ. The combined accelerator eventually can deliver 0.53mA O+ beam with energy 1.65MeV, which has sufficiently demonstrated the feasibility of the SFRFQ structure.

Abstract: The UNILAC was improved for high current performance by replacing the Wideroe prestripper accelerator by an RFQ and an IH-type DTL. In addition, one of two ion source terminals was equipped with high current sources of MUCIS- and MEVVA-type. Therefore, a redesign of the LEBT from the ion source to the RFQ entrance was necessary. The new LEBT was installed at the beginning of 1999. The commissioning was carried mainly with a high intense argon beam. The achieved 17 emA Ar+ are 6 emA above the RFQ design intensity. The expected performance of the new LEBT was achieved: full transmission for high current beams, preservation of brilliance along the beam line, isotope separation for all elements, transverse phase space matching to the RFQ linac, and macropulse shaping. In particular, the high degree of space charge compensation was confirmed.
