TU1A01 Status of the IFMIF-EVEDA 9 MeV 125 mA Deuteron Linac 407
  • A. Mosnier
    Fusion for Energy, Garching, Germany
  The scope of IFMIF/EVEDA has been recently revised to set priority on the validation activities, especially on the Accelerator Prototype (LIPAc) with extending the duration up to mid 2017 in order to better fit the development of the challenging components and the commissioning of the whole accelerator. The present status of LIPAc, currently under construction at Rokkasho in Japan, outlines of the engineering design and of the developments of the major components will be reported. In conclusion, the expected outcomes of the engineering work, associated with the experimental program will be presented.

Status of Fermilab Project X  
  • S. Nagaitsev, S. Henderson
    Fermilab, Batavia, USA
  Project X, a high-power proton facility, will support world-leading programs in long base line neutrino physics, the physics of rare processes, and nuclear studies. It will be unique among accelerator facilities worldwide in its flexibility to support multiple physics programs simultaneously with MW class beams at the intensity frontier. Project X is based on a 3 GeV continuous-wave superconducting H linac. Further acceleration to 8 GeV, and injection into Fermilab's existing Recycler/Main Injector complex, will support long-baseline neutrino experiments. Project X will provide ~3 MW of total beam power to the 3 GeV program, simultaneously with ≥ 2 MW to a neutrino production target at 60-120 GeV. This talk will describe the Reference Design of Project X and status of the R&D program.

  Interest in the feasibility of ADS has increased dramatically in the last decade. This talk will briefly introduce the technologies presently available for ADS applications and provide a review of the ongoing R&D and construction activities in China, with particular emphasis on the challenges presented by the development of a high intensity, SRF CW proton Linac.

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at MSU includes a driver linac that can accelerate all stable isotopes to energies beyond 200 MeV/u at beam powers up to 400 kW. The linac consists of 330 superconducting quarter- and half-wave resonators operating at 2 K temperature. Physical challenges include acceleration of multiple charge states of beams to meet beam-on-target requirements, efficient production and acceleration of intense heavy-ion beams from low to intermediate energies, accommodation of multiple charge stripping scenarios (liquid lithium, helium gas, and carbon foil) and ion species, designs for both baseline in-flight fragmentation and ISOL upgrade options, and design considerations of machine availability, tunability, reliability, maintainability, and upgradability. We report on the FRIB accelerator design and developments with emphasis on technical challenges and progress.

One of the goals of the Proton Engineering Frontier Project (PEFP) is to develop a 100 MeV proton linear accelerator, which consists of 50 keV proton injector, 3 MeV radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ), 20 MeV/100 MeV drift tube linac (DTL) and 20 MeV/100 MeV beam lines. The 100 MeV linear accelerator and beam line components have been installed in the tunnel and experimental hall. After the completion of the utility commissioning, the commissioning of the accelerator starts with a goal of the beam delivery to the 100 MeV target room located at the end of the beam line in 2012. In this paper, the status and commissioning plan of the PEFP 100 MeV linear accelerator are presented.
