The Project X Injector Experiment (PXIE), a test bed for the Project X front end, will be completed at Fermilab at FY12-16. One of the challenging goals of PXIE is demonstration of the capability to form a 1 mA H beam with an arbitrary selected bunch pattern from the initially 5 mA 162.5 MHz CW train. The bunch selection will be made in the Medium Energy Beam Transport (MEBT) at 2.1 MeV by diverting undesired bunches to an absorber. This paper will present the MEBT scheme and describe development of its elements, including the kickers and absorber.

  Fermilab is developing Project-X, a high intensity superconducting H machine for high energy physics experiments. The first stage is 1 mA average, 3 GeV linac operating in CW mode. Its front-end comprises a LEBT section with magnetic focusing and pre-chopping, a 162.5 MHz RFQ and ~10 m long MEBT section which includes a high bandwidth, bunch-by-bunch capable chopper. The latter extracts, out of a nominal 5 mA peak 162.5 MHz train, and arbitrary bunch structure able to meet the requirements of different experiments. Acceleration from 2.1 MeV to 3 GeV is accomplished through five families of SRF cavities operating at three frequencies: Half-wave resonators (162.5 MHz), spoke cavities (two families at 325 MHz) and elliptical cavities (two families at 650 MHz). In this contribution, we present the status of the CW linac lattice design and results from recent beam physics studies.  
THPB017 A Concept: 8GeV CW Linac, Staged Approach 885

  This note describes a concept of CW Proton Linac on the Fermilab site. With exception of RFQ the linac is based on superconducting technology. Based on the output, energy is segmented in three parts, 1GeV, 3GeV and 8GeV. It is located near existing Fermilab Proton Source with the intention that each section of the linac can be used as soon as it is commissioned. The whole design is based on the designs suggested for the Proton Driver and ProjectX. The suggested site and linac segmentation allows for the construction to start immediately. Additional benefits come from the fact that the present linac (the oldest machine in Fermilab complex) is replaced and existing Proton Source’s functionality is preserved for the future.

Project-X is a proposed superconducting linac-based high intensity proton source at Fermilab. The machine first stages operate in CW mode from 2.1 to 3 GeV and a high bandwidth chopper is used to produce the required bunch patterns. A 162.5 MHz CW RFQ accelerates the beam from 30 keV to 2.1 MeV. A concern with CW operation is that losses either within the RFQ or in the dowstream modules should be well-understood and remain very low to ensure safe and/or reliable operation. In this contribution, we investigate the suitability of existing RFQ codes and model the PXIE RFQ (ProjectX test facility) designed constructed by LBNL to make useful predictions of loss patterns and phase space distribution.
