  A four-bar, 200-MHz, 750-keV RFQ is being developed by Linac Systems. The RFQ design requires injection of a 25-keV, approximate 25-mA proton beam to produce a 20-mA 750-keV output beam bunched at 200 MHz. The injector is comprised of a microwave proton source and single einzel lens low-energy beam transport (LEBT) system. For an ideally matched injector beam, the RFQ design predicts > 90% beam transmission. Such a transmission has not yet been measured in the laboratory using a microwave proton source and a single einzel lens LEBT. PBGUNS* simulations are being performed to elucidate the injector performance. Model assumptions and various designs will be presented. Predicted injector phase-space distributions at the RFQ match point will be compared to the RFQ acceptance parameters. *Steve Bell, Thunderbird Simulations, www.thunderbirdsimulations.com.
