, IC LondonJ. Pasternak Introduction FFAG – Fixed Field Alternating Gradient accelerator is a ring with a strong focusing lattice, very large momentum acceptance and small dispersion First proposed by Okhawa and Symon et al. In 1953 Electron model from 50ties (MURA) POP-world first proton FFAG (Mori et al )
, IC LondonJ. Pasternak Advantages of FFAG accelerators: Constant fields allow for very high repetition rate (100 Hz – kHz) Constant tunes (or linear fields) give large acceptances Strong focusing reduces dispersion (orbit excursion), which limits the magnet size High Intensity FFAG applications: High power proton drivers (4-10 MW) for neutrino factory, muon collider, neutron sources, ADS… Acceleration of unstable particle beams (muons, radioactive ions) Medical applications

, IC LondonJ. Pasternak Motivations for a Medical FFAG Hadrontherapy shows up to be more effective for cancer treatment comparing to the conventional radiotherapy! Advantages of FFAG for medical applications: - High dose delivery 5 Gy/min/l (high rep rate – 100 Hz) - Variable energy operation without enegy degraders - Compact size and low cost - Simple and efficient extraction - Stable and easy operation - Multiple extraction ports - Bunch to Pixel treatment.

, IC LondonJ. Pasternak Problems of IDS nsFFAG Very compact lattice with short straight sections - very difficult injection/extraction. Due to natural chromaticity time of flight depends on amplitude – longitudinal blow-up and acceptance limitation. Beam loading. Natural chromaticity Corrected chromaticity, study by S. Machida
, IC LondonJ. Pasternak Horizontal extraction m m Parameters: 10 kickers – 1.4 m, T and septum – 1.4 m, 4 T.
, IC LondonJ. Pasternak Vertical extraction m m Parameters: 6 kickers – 1.4 m, 0.07 T and septum – 1.4 m, 4 T.
, IC LondonJ. Pasternak Summary and future plans for IDS nsFFAG Work continues on injectio/extraction, towards lattices with insertions and chromaticity correction Further beam dynamics studies are needed. We need a study of hardware components, magnets, RF, kickers, septum, etc. Reference design for the muon acceleration in the Neutrino Factory exists. Beam dynamics has been successfully checked using independent codes. Extraction looks not impossible, but very challanging!
, IC LondonJ. Pasternak Summary: We are observing a rebirth of FFAGs after 50 years of silence. Machines constructed until now work very well! Several projects are under implementation. FFAGs will have a bright future in physics (high intensity drivers, muon accelerators, etc.) FFAG might become a next generation medical accelerator of choice
