Abstract:

The combination of a bumpy torus field and a conventional betatron field leads to an interesting strongly-focused, high-current accelerator configuration. The question of orbital stability of a test particle in such a device is discussed and it is shown that the alternating gradient focusing in this accelerator can easily lead to greater than 20 bandwidth in allowed mismatch between the vertical magnetic field and the average beam particle energy.
