  The J-PARC 3-GeV rapid cycling synchrotron (RCS) has been provided proton beam to the Material and Life Science Facility (MLF)as well as to the 50 GeV Main Ring (MR). Proton beam is accelerated from 181 MeV to 3GeV in the RCS and immediately extracted it to the beam transport line to the MLF and the MR. Extraction kicker magnets are used for this fast extraction. To improve reliability of the RCS for user operation, production of a reserve kicker magnet has been performed. The kicker magnet mainly consists of Ni-Zn ferrite cores and Aluminum alloy plates, and these parts are installed in vacuum chamber to prevent discharge because a high voltage is applied to the magnet for a short period. Since it is important to reduce the outgassing of water vapor form these parts to prevent discharge, we has been produced the reserve magnet with low outgassing at high voltage discharge. Since assemble of the kicker magnet already finished and vacuum test has been performed, the result of vacuum test is reported.

  In the 3 GeV-RCS (Rapid cycling Synchrotron) in J-PARC (Japan Accelerator Research Complex) project, large-scale hydro-formed bellows were developed to adjust the gap between the ceramic ducts and/or between the ceramic ducts and the transport ducts. They have been equipped with a newly developed RF shield, because the usual beryllium-copper spring finger contacts were found to be very hard (roughly 1000 N/mm) owing to the large size. This contact is made of Ti braid, which consists of wires with a diameter of 0.3 mm. This RF contact is a kind of basket (with two ports) made with the braids. Because of the spring effect, the contact can change shape easily. In addition, the contact can easily connect the different cross sections in a smooth fashion. Furthermore, this structure is almost free from the dust generation, which is one of the most troublesome problems for the usual spring finger contacts. This time, we have constructed reserve bellows with the RF shield made of SUS 316L wires to improve the reliability of user operation. The outline of the bellows will be presented, especially laying emphasis on the mechanical function of the RF shield.

  Kicker magnets extract the accelerated beam to the beam transport lines in the RCS of the J-PARC. The kicker magnets mainly consist of Ni-Zn ferrite cores and Al alloy plates, and are installed in a vacuum to prevent discharge because a high voltage is applied for a short period. It is important to reduce the outgassing of water vapor from the ferrite cores. Although the kicker magnets have been working well, recently the vacuum quality became a little poor. Thus, we developed the in-situ degassing method for the ferrite cores. This is achieved by directing the heat from the heat source to the kicker magnet and not to the chamber wall. With the test stand we succeeded to flow almost all the heat toward the kicker magnet and to bake out the ferrite cores about 150°C, maintaining the temperature of the chamber wall less than 50°C. As the previous work with TDS measurements revealed that the absorbed water molecules can be easily removed by the bake-out at 100-150°C in a vacuum, the outgassing from the ferrite cores was successfully reduced. The details of the in-situ degassing method will be reported, including the practical method to reduce the outgassing of the working kickers.

  which rapidly correct the tunes, are planned to be installed during the summer shutdown in 2013. The characteristic of the excitation pattern of such quadrupoles (quadrupole corrector) is their fast change of magnetic field, which are more than 200T/s at the fastest point. In this report, we describe a deliberation flow about the design of a vacuum chamber, which is installed in the quadrupole corrector. The effect of eddy current was calculated in the case of the current titanium vacuum chamber. The results showed that the temperature rise was too much (up to ~350oC) and the magnetic field in the vacuum chamber is largely distorted by the eddy current. Therefore we decided to employ an alumina ceramics vacuum chamber, for which we have a past achievement in RCS*. We estimated the displacement and stress, which is caused by the atmospheric pressure, for the alumina ceramics vacuum chamber and vacuum component around it by making the calculation model for the finite element method. It was found that there was no large displacement and stress by installing the alumina ceramics vacuum chamber.
