  H-mode cavities offer outstanding shunt impedances at low beam energies and enable the acceleration of intense ion beams. Crossed-bar H-cavities extend these properties to energies even beyond 100 MeV. Thus, the designs of the new injector linacs for FAIR, i.e. a 70 MeV, 70 mA proton driver for pbar-production and a cw intermediate mass, superconducting ion linac are based on these novel cavities. Several prototypes (normal & super-conducting) have been built and successfully tested. Moreover, designs for a replacement of the 80 MV Alvarez section of the GSI - Unilac will be discussed to improve the capabilities as the future FAIR heavy ion injector.

  A RF chopper is placed in the medium energy transport section (MEBT1) at J-PARC linac. The chopper is normally driven at synchronous phase of 0 degree to give a maximum deflection. The chopper has two RF gaps and both of them deflect a beam bunch horizontally while RF is on. In the MEBT1 section, while we have a transverse emittance monitor, there is no longitudinal monitor. It is hard to newly place a longitudinal beam monitor there due to space limitation. We conduct a simulation which studies on the usability of the chopper to a longitudinal beam monitor. When the synchronous phase of the chopper is ± 90 degree, the longitudinal beam profile is projected to horizontal beam distribution. In this presentation, we introduce simulation results.

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.

  The beam operation of J-PARC linac was interrupted by the Tohoku earthquake in March 2011. After significant effort for its restoration, we have resumed the beam operation of J-PARC linac in December 2011. After resumption of beam operation, we have been suffering from beam losses which were not observed before the earthquake. Tackling with the beam loss issues, we have been reached the comparable beam power for user operation to the one before the earthquake. In this paper, we present the experience in the beam start-up tuning after the earthquake with emphasis on the beam loss mitigation efforts.  
MOPB098 Planning for Experimental Demonstration of Transverse Emittance Transfer at the GSI UNILAC through Eigen-Emittance Shaping 404

  The minimum transverse emittances achievable in a beam line are determined by the two transverse eigen-emittances of the beam. For vanishing interplane correlations they are equal to the transverse rms-emittances. Eigen-emittances are constants of motion for all symplectic beam line elements, i.e. (even tilted) linear elements. To allow for rms-emittance transfer, the eigen-emittances are changed by a non-symplectic action to the beam, preferably preserving the 4d-rms-emittance. Unlike emittance swapping the presented concept will allow transforming a beam of equal rms-emittances into a beam of different rms-emittances while preserving the 4d-rms-emittance. This contribution will introduce the concept for eigen-emittance shaping and rms-emittance transfer at an ion linac. The actual work status towards the experimental demonstration of the concept at the GSI UNILAC is presented.

  The SPIRAL2 superconducting accelerator installation starts in 2012. The major components have been tested in the various partner laboratories, and the building construction is well engaged. The management of the interfaces between process and buildings is a strategic point in an underground project with strong space constraints. This contribution will describe the performances of the various components of the SPIRAL2 accelerator, and the methodology put in place in order to insure the integration of the process inside the buildings.

The beam dynamics code DYNAC* was originally developed at CERN. For accelerating elements a set of very accurate quasi-Liouvillian beam dynamics equations was introduced, applicable to protons, heavy ions and non-relativistic electrons. Furthermore, DYNAC contains three space charge routines, including a 3D version**. More recently, a numerical method has been added, capable of simulating a multi charge state ion beam in accelerating elements (i.e. cavities). Beam line devices such as sextupoles and quadrupole-sextupole magnets as well as electrostatic devices are now also included. Capability of second order calculations of such elements for a multi charge state beam has been implemented. Benchmarking of the code, in particular for a multi-charge state beam is discussed. Comparison of beam simulations results with beam measurements on the MSU ReAccelerator (ReA) are reported. The possibility of using DYNAC as an online tool for ReA and FRIB is discussed.
