AB - Argonne National Laboratory is developing an Advanced Compact Carbon Ion Linac (ACCIL) in collaboration with RadiaBeam Technologies. The 45-meter long linac is designed to deliver up to 10⁹ carbon ions per second with variable energy from 45 MeV/u to 450 MeV/u. To optimize the linac design in this energy range both backward traveling wave and coupled cell standing wave S-band structures were analyzed. To achieve the required accelerating gradients our design uses accelerating structures excited with short RF pulses (~500 ns flattop). The front-end accelerating structures such as the RFQ, DTL and Coupled Cell DTL are designed to operate at lower frequencies to maintain high shunt impedance. In parallel with our design effort ANL's RF test facility has been upgraded and used for the testing of an S-band high-gradient structure designed and built by Radiabeam for high pulsed RF power operation. The 5-cell S-band structure demonstrated 52 MV/m acceleration field at 2 μs 30 Hz RF pulses. A detailed physics design, including a comparison of different accelerating structures and end-to-end beam dynamics simulations of the ACCIL will be presented.
