Abstract:

The design of the baseline accelerator system excluding the injector and extractor appears relatively straightforward. Some development is needed particularly involving the insulation system for the vertical field coil, but no major technological advancements are necessary. The resulting system requires characterization of field errors and perturbations and of the match between vertical magnetic field and particle energy. Unfortunately it is not known whether the accelerating environment produced by the baseline design described above is consistent with stable beam acceleration. Synchronization of the vertical magnetic field with particle energy can be provided by a simple passive integration of the acceleration pulse in the baseline design.
