"Accelerators for the Advanced Exotic Beam Facility"


Dr. Peter Ostroumov,
Argonne National Laboratory


The Office of Science of the Department of Energy is currently planning to proceed with the construction of an advanced radioactive beam facility in the U.S. This facility will have unique capabilities compared with others both existing and planned elsewhere. The Facility for Radioactive Ion Beams (FRIB) would consist of a heavy-ion driver linac, a post-accelerator and experimental areas. Secondary beams of rare isotopes will be available as high quality reaccelerated or stopped beams from a gas catcher and high power ISOL targets, as well as, high energy beams following in-flight fragmentation or fission of heavy ions. The proposed design of the FRIB driver linac is a CW, fully superconducting, 833 MV linac capable of accelerating uranium ions up to 200 MeV/u and protons to 580 MeV with 400 kW beam power. The subject of the talk is results of an extensive research and development effort which has resolved many technical issues related to the construction of the driver linac and other systems required for FRIB.
