  • MuCool / Linac Diagnostic Beamline and MTA facility:

    External Beams Dept.C. Johnstone, + othersReview Nov. 30, 2005

  • Purpose:test the basic techniques and components proposed for muon ionization cooling and

    provide accurate measurements of linac beam properties important for future, stable high-intensity running of the downstream accelerators.

  • Description:The new beamline and facility consists of15 Hz pulsed-magnetic extraction system which diverts an entire Linac macropulse into the new beamline

    An ~50 m long beamline which feeds and ends in experiments housed in a 20 x 40 hall; the Mucool Test Area (MTA)Using civil construction and resources that remain from the 400-MeV Linac Upgrade; this project is considerably economical. The experimental hall is shielded and separated from the Linac by 12 of concrete blocks the beamline penetrates through these shield blocks to the hall

    The new facility is capable of:Accepting full Linac beam intensity (1.6 x 1013 protons @ 15 Hz) to within the radiological limits imposed by the current state of shielding and radiological controls

  • MTA facility: Plan View

  • Low-loss Beam Extraction from LinacExtraction to MTABegins upstream and continues downstream of 400-MeV chopper to contain H- magnetic stripping losses to 10-4 level. Requires 10 movement of Q74 upstream*The entire Linac macropulse is extracted (the length of the macropulse may be varied from 2-50 by the 750-keV chopper.Pulsed extraction magnets:Pulsed extraction magnets: two C magnetsOne 3 magnet upstream and one 7.5 magnet downstream; single power supply for both>1 of clearance/no conflicts with 400-MeV line No 400-MeV vacuum interruption for installation/removalDesign is complete; bids are in; awaiting final division budgets*kicking beam through Q74 causes a large displacement in the 2 Linac beampipe with accompanying high losses.

  • 400 MeV Linac Enclosure~2m Extraction DriftsRamp trajectoriesRamp enclosure wall

  • H- Extraction RequirementsBeam entering ramp requires ~30 of bend relative to LinacDipole field strengths 7kG to avoid stripping H-, upstream of chopper, ~6kG (Chopper is highly sensitive to electrons and sparking)First component to clear is Q2Controls beam separation to Booster/diagnostic lineCannot be moved; tricky to alignRequires 11 to clear manifolding, 13-15 beam center to center relative to transfer lineNext element to clear is lambertsonDipole (CR) conveniently fits next to transfer line between Q2 and lambertsonIf CR dipoles are used (10 max) another one is required to avoid enclosure corner, 45 total is required for ramp curvature and align beam parallel with the experimental hall enclosure.

  • Linac modifications: Q74 moves ~10 upstreamQuad to be movedBLD will be removed to make space for quad

  • Diagnostic Line Design - New design incorporates10 m straight for transverse emittance measurements of linac beam50 cm low beta waist at center of straightOrder of magnitude change in beam sizeAccess to low beta focus pointDispersion suppression

    Inexpensive straight bore through shield blocksSimple, stable match to linac based on linac FODO cells (~90)High (~7m) dispersion point for momentum-spread measurement

  • Operational details of Diagnostic TuneMinimum beam stay clear 0.3 (8mm) in upstream 2 chopper mating flange and triplet quadrupoles based on 10 mm-mr linac emitance.Dispersion suppression can be checked and tuned by :varying linac output energy and varying last CR dipole strengthBeam will be steered into hall using trims after the diagnostic straightLow-beta waist can be adjusted and focused onto the second multiwire (just downstream of shield blocks)Using the quad low-beta triplet Critical Devices:Pulsed extraction magnetsBeam stop upstream and downstream of shield blocksOccupancy and radiological controlsBeam stops provide unlimited occupancy in experimental hallPostings, fencing, eberm module will allow us to run at ~1 Hz and full linac intensityPulsed power supply will be hard-wired to 1 Hz.

  • Low-loss beam tune for MTA runningBeamline can be re-tuned for MTA experiments to achieve the lowest-loss optics. One example is given below with momentum spread included. The peak beam envelope is reduced by 1 cm in the half width (2 cm full width). If a polarity flip of the quadrupole is allowed, even smaller beam envelopes can be achieved.
