Abstract:

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology undertook to design, fabricate and test a prototype compact superconducting proton cyclotron which addressed all fundamental design and performance issues for a cyclotron at a final energy of 250 MeV and final beam intensity of 1 mA with less than 0.1 extraction loss. In March 2012, DTRA suspended work on the project indefinitely. This report documents the accomplishments and status of work on the five major subsystems of the project 1 proton injection using external electron cyclotron resonance source with axial injection using spiral inflector 2 magnetic field design 3 radio frequency accelerating cavities 4 cryogenic system 5beam extraction.
