SPIRAL2 RFQ prototype - First results


The SPIRAL2 RFQ is designed to accelerate either 5 mA deuteron beam (Q/A=1/2) or a 1 mA of q/A=1/3 particle up to 0.75 MeV/A at 88 MHz. It is a CW machine which has to show stable operation, provide the required availability and reduce losses to a minimum in order to minimize the activation constraints. Extensive modelisation was done to ensure a good vane position under RF. The prototype of this 4-vane RFQ was built and tested in INFN-LNS Catania and then in IN2P3-LPSC Grenoble. It allowed us to measure the vacuum quality, the RF field by X-ray measurements, the cavity displacement and the real vane displacement during the RF injection. Different techniques were used, including an innovative CCD measurement with a 0.8 μm precision. This paper outlines the different results.
