In typical compact source, proton or deuteron are injected into Li or Be. To develop a higher flax source than conventional ones, we propose a source with 7Li beam generated by laser ion source using direct injection scheme (DPIS) into RFQ linac. Because of the higher velocity of center of mass than that in the case of proton beam injection, generated neutrons are more collimated. In addition, laser ion source with DPIS is expected to accelerate mA class fully ionized 7Li beam stably with simple setup, while it is difficult for conventional ion sources. The high collimation and high current are expected to lead to higher neutron flax. In this presentation, we present a design of RFQ linac optimized to accelerate such a high current beam with shorter distance.
