The cooler storage ring synchrotron CSR of HIRFL started running in 2008. The SFC (Sector Focusing Cyclotron) and SSC (Separator Sector Cyclotron) form an injector for the CSR. To improve beam intensity and/or injection efficiency, a new linear injector, the SSC-LINAC, for the SSC has been proposed to replace the existing SFC. The SSC-LINAC consists of an ECR ion source, LEBT, a RFQ, MEBT, and four IH-DTLs. This paper only represents the design research of the RFQ accelerator, which has a frequency of 53.667MHz. The ions up to uranium with ratio of mass-to-charge up to 7 are accelerated and injected into the CSR by the SSC-LINAC. The SSC-LINAC works on CW mode. The RFQ beam dynamic design study is based on 238U34+ beams with intensity of 0.5mA. The inter-vane voltage is 70kV with a maximum modulation factor of 1.93. It uses a 2.5m-long 4-rod structure to accelerate uranium ions from 3.728keV/u to 143keV/u with transmission efficiency of 94%. The RFQDYN code checks the transmission of different kinds of ions in the RFQ. The specific shunt impedance of RFQ is optimized to 438kΩ.m. The design of cavity tuning and the water cooling system are also included in this paper.

TheμAccelerator Platform (MAP), a resonant dielectric structure for laser acceleration of electrons, has been in development for a number of years. It consists of a a vacuum gap between two slab-shaped reflecting boundaries, with a transmissive grating diffractive optic on one boundary that allows laser power to propagate into the gap and enforces an accelerating mode. We report on the progress of bench and beam tests carried out within the last year, and the challenges faced in diagnosing <pC beams from optical-scale structures. We also describe refinements to our fabrication techniques and lessons learned during the development of the fabrication process.
TUPPC074 Study of Resonance Driving Term in Electron Storage Rings 1344

  The resonance driving term (RDT) is useful to analyze and optimize the nonlinear performance of the storage ring. In addition to analytical calculation of RDT, experimental measurement of RDT has been made in some proton storage rings based on turn-by-turn BPM data. For electron storage rings, the analysis is more complicated due to decoherence effects and strong radiation damping. The relation between spectral decomposition of BPM data and RDT is derived and validated using beam numerical tracking data in this paper.
