Status of the IASA RaceTrack Microtron Facility the 10 MeV CW injector linac

Andreas Karabarbounis,
University of Athens

As construction of the main IASA building already started, the highlights of the design of the 240 MeV two-stage cascade CW RaceTrack Microtron of the Institute of Accelerating Systems and Applications (IASA) is presented. The status of the 10 MeV, room temperature, injector is presented. This injector, now housed in a smaller building, is composed by a 5 MeV injector linac with RF structures of the side-couple type, followed by a 4m-booster section. This system will provide a realistic test facility for all subsystems (power station, klystron, wave-guiding, chiller, control, diagnostics, interlock and safety system), with exception of recirculations of the IASA cascade RTM facility. It is envisioned that its beams will be used for applied physics research.
