Machine Physics at ISIS Proton Meeting 24 th March 11 Dean Adams (On behalf of ISIS Accelerator Groups)
Machine Physics at ISIS ISIS delivers ~ 225 µA, 800 MeV proton beam @ 50 Hz onto 2 neutron and 1 muon target for condensed matter and muon research. Accelerator chain consists of: – 60 mA H- Ion source – 665 KeV RFQ – 70 MeV Linac – HEDS transport line – 70 – 800 MeV RCS running at 50 Hz – 800 MeV beamlines feeding 2 neutron and 1 muon target. Beam diagnostics include : Intensity, position, profile, temporal and beam loss. Machine Physics measurements/simulations presented focus mainly on those which support ISIS operations.
Injector Machine Physics Two Beam pickups in the HEDS TOF dt = 3.125 ns = 71.8 MeV Chop a 100 ns injector pulse (1/15 th turn) Inject into ring with RF off. Beam de-coheres over 100 turns giving dp/p
