Design of the superconducting LINAC for SARAF

Abstract : CEA is committed to delivering a Medium Energy Beam Transfer line and a superconducting linac (SCL) [1] for SARAF accelerator in order to accelerate 5mA beam of either protons from 1.3 MeV to 35 MeV or deuterons from 2.6 MeV to 40.1 MeV. The SCL consists 4 cryomodules equipped with warm diagnostics. The first two identical cryomodules host 6 half-wave resonator (HWR) low beta cavities (β = 0.091), 176 MHz. As the last two identical welcome 7 HWR high-beta cavities (β = 0.181), 176 MHz. The beam is focused through the superconducting solenoids located between cavities and housing steering coils. A Beam Position Monitor is placed upstream each solenoid. A diagnostic box containing a beam profiler, a bunch length monitor and a vacuum pump will be inserted between 2 consecutive cryomodules. The HWR cavities, the solenoid package, the cryomodules and the warm sections are being designed. These studies will be presented in this contribution.
