2 Page 2 Introduction to Radio Frequency Quadrupoles 9th December 2004Ajit Kurup Basic Description Resonant structure used to focus, bunch and accelerate a continuous stream of ions. 4-rod rfq 4-vane rfq

3 Page 3 Introduction to Radio Frequency Quadrupoles 9th December 2004Ajit Kurup Some Basics About Resonance A resonant cavity is analogous to a simple parallel LCR circuit. The impedance of the reactive part is infinite at the resonant frequency  0. Optimal energy transfer from voltage source to the load ( R ) at the resonant frequency reactive components idid igig

Boundary conditions: field along axis is non- zero, field in z direction at r = R 0 is zero. Only certain solutions are allowed  specific resonant modes. R0R0 d z

8 Page 8 Introduction to Radio Frequency Quadrupoles 9th December 2004Ajit Kurup Power Transfer and Losses RF power from the coaxial cable is often magnetically coupled to RFQs via a copper loop. Real resonant structures contain resistances which can be simplified as a resistor ( R l ) in series with the inductor. If there is no beam (i.e. R B =0) power is still required to maintain oscillations in the cavity. coupling loop RBRB RLRL coaxial cable cavity L C

10 Page 10 Introduction to Radio Frequency Quadrupoles 9th December 2004Ajit Kurup The RFQ Quadrupole Field Focuses in one direction and defocuses in the other. Since fields vary in time, the focusing and defocusing directions swap.
