  SARAF-phase 1 at SOREQ, with its single 6 half-wave resonators cryomodule, is the first high current, superconducting low-beta linac in operation and it is presently delivering cw proton beams in the mA range. A phase 2 is foreseen for this linac which will allow acceleration up to 40 MeV of 2 mA cw proton and deuteron beams. The project status, the operational experience and the future goals of SARAF should be described.

The Soreq NRC initiated the establishment of SARAF – Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility. SARAF will be a multi-user facility for basic research, e.g., nuclear astrophysics, radioactive beams, medical and biological research; neutron based non-destructive testing (using a thermal neutron camera and a neutron diffractometer) and radio-pharmaceuticals research, development and production. The SARAF continuous wave (CW) accelerator is planned to produce variable energy (5-40 MeV) proton and deuteron beam currents (0.04-5 mA). Phase I of SARAF (ion source, radio-frequency quadrupole (RFQ), and one cryomodule housing 6 half-wave resonators (HWR) was installed and being operated at Soreq NRC delivering CW 1mA 3.5 MeV proton beams and low-duty cycle (0.0001) 0.3 mA 4.7 MeV deuteron beams. SARAF is designed to enable hands-on maintenance, which implies very low beam losses for the entire accelerator. The physics design of two options is explored to subsequently develop a conceptual design for selected option for extending the linac to its planned beam parameters (SARAF Phase-II: 40 MeV, 5 mA protons and deuterons).
