  The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a long pulsed source based on a high power superconducting linac. The long pulse concept is an excellent strategy of maximizing high beam power while minimizing peak power on the target. Chopping in the long pulse concept provides the necessary resolution for many neutron physics applications. However, there are some neutron physics applications in which both peak neutron flux and high resolution are desired. The peak flux of the ESS can be enhanced by placing an accumulator ring at the end of the linac. A bunch by bunch extraction scheme can be used to optimize the proton pulse time profile that maximizes peak neutron flux while minimizing instantaneous beam power on the target.
