CERN and RAL are working in parallel to develop Front Ends for future particle accelerators. At CERN the Front End will be part of LINAC4, a potential replacement for the Linac2 accelerator, whilst at RAL the Front End is intended to demonstrate that a high current, high quality chopped beam is achievable and that the design could be used as part of a Proton Driver for a future Neutrino Factory. The two Front End designs have many similarities and basically consist of four main components: an H- ion source, a Low Energy Beam Transport (LEBT) matching into a Radio-Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) and a Medium Energy Beam Transport (MEBT) line with a fast beam chopper. The beam choppers are different in the two designs and it is important to compare the effectiveness of the two methods of operation. This paper describes a simulation study of high intensity beam dynamics and beam transport when the RAL and CERN MEBT designs are each fed into the same CERN structure for LINAC4.
