HIISI, new 18 GHz ECRIS for the JYFL accelerator laboratory

Abstract : At the end of 2013 the Academy of Finland granted an infrastructure funding for the JYFL Accelerator Laboratory in order to increase beam intensities for the international user community. The primary objective is to construct a new high performance ECR ion source, HIISI (Heavy Ion Ion Source Injector), for the K130 cyclotron. Using room temperature magnets the HIISI has been designed to produce about the same magnetic field configuration as the superconducting ECRIS SUSI at NSCL/MSU for 18 GHz operation. An innovative structure will be used to maximize the radial confinement and safety of the permanent magnets. The sextupole magnets are separated and insulated from the plasma chamber providing two advantages: 1) the permanent magnets can be cooled down to -20˚C, which increases especially their coercivity and 2) makes it possible to reach higher radial field at the inner surface of plasma chamber. Comprehensive simulations were performed with microwave power up to 6 kW to analyse and address all the heat loads and temperature distribution on the permanent magnet. In this article the magnetic field design and detailed innovative scheme for sextupole magnet will be presented.
