Booster Synchrotron Cavities: An Overview in the Context of PIP Mohamed Hassan, Timergali Khabiboulline, Vyacheslav Yakovlev 07/03/2013
Fermilabs Booster Parameters The Fermilab Booster is a synchrotron that accelerates protons from 400 MeV to 8 GeV The Booster circumference is meters, the magnetic cycle is a biased 15 Hz and the RF operates at harmonic 84 of the revolution frequency
Proton Improvement Plan Objectives: Increase the Proton Source throughput while maintain good availability and acceptable residual activation through S. Hederson, Dec 2010 Goals: – PIP should enable Linac/Booster to deliver: 1.80E17 protons per hour (12 Hz) by May 1, 2013 deliver 2.25E17 protons per hour (15 Hz) by January 1, 2016 – while maintaining Linac/Booster availabilty > 85% and residual activation at acceptable levels and ensuring a useful operation life of the proton source through S. Hederson, Dec 2010 S. Henderson, Accelerator Advisory Committee, Nov. 7-9, 2011

Slow versus Fast Frequency Tuning Slow Using motor driven mechanism Response time ~60 s Fast Using piezoelectric/ magneto- strictive element Response time ~10 ms Faster Using a ferromagnetic material Response time ~ ms Fastest Using Ferroelectric material Response time ~ ns
Ferromagnetic Tuning Classical way of tuning microwave components using bias current that will change the permittivity of the material
Parallel Biased Cavities Bias Field is Parallel to the RF Field Ferrites with High Saturation Magnetization (Ni-Zn) Larger values of Mu (Larger Losses, Lower Q) Relatively limited by the heating in the ferrites Gradient is limited also by voltage breakdown in air H h
Perpendicular Biased Cavities Bias Field is Perpendicular to the RF Field Ferrites with Relatively Low Saturation Magnetization (Mn- Zn) Smaller values of Mu (Smaller Losses, Larger Q) Cooling is difficult Some environmental hazards because of Beryllium Oxide Only prototypes (up to our knowledge) H h

Voltage Breakdown In Air ~ 3 MV/m (30 KV/cm) In Vacuum (according to Kilpatrick) is ~ 10 MV/m (theoretical) 18 MV/m (measured) Theoretical Kilpatrick Theoretical Peter et. Al. Measured W. Peter, R. J. Fael, A. Kadish, and L. E. Thode, Criteria for Vacuum Breakdown in RF Cavities, IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, Vol. Ns-30, No. 4, Aug 1983
Max Field in Air Electric Field for 55KV 1.7 MV/m Assumed 0.25 Blend Radius upon John Reids recommendation
Max Electric Field Electric Field for 55kV 1.7 MV/m Electric Field for 60 kV 1.85 MV/m 3.3 MV/m 3.6 MV/m
Why Perpendicular Biased Cavity Could Achieve Higher Voltage Gradient? Vacuum fills most of the cavity volume (breakdown ~ 100 kV/cm) Vacuum windows are right away on the tuner connection Tuner is filled with dielectric Air fills most of the cavity volume (breakdown ~30 kV/cm) Vacuum windows are nearby the gap Tuner is filled with air
Possible Changes to the Current Design How about rounding the stem corners with large radius >0.25? How about enlarging the stem connection between the tuner and the cavity? How about moving the vacuum window position? How about filling the tuner with dielectric medium (though it might be a problem for cooling)? How about designing a perpendicular biased tuner to be used with the current cavity? How about using TRIUMF cavity (we have one somewhere here in FNAL)?
Conclusion Possible design changes have been identified Major changes in the current tuner have been suggested Perhaps TRIUMF cavity could be used as a test prototype for perpendicular-biased option
Ferroelectric Booster Cavity? High Q across the band ~1000 Fast Response ~ ns But 10% tunability Need high voltage to be applied 50 kV/cm Bias Circuit will be completely different Conceptual, No Prototype Very early developement Would require quite involved development Newsham, D., N.
