General view of the NICA facility

The new flagship JINR project in high energy nuclear physics, NICA

(Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility), aimed at the study of phase transitions in strongly interacting nuclear matter at the highest possible baryon density, was put forward in2006

SPI & linac

Spin Physics Detector(SPD)


The expected luminosity of polarized beams is planned at the level of (1030 -1031) cm-2·s -1

The main purpose of the SPI-project is to increase the intensity of the accelerated polarized beams at the JINR Accelerator Complex up to 1010 d/pulse

The SPI-project assumes thedevelopment of the source using charge-exchange ionizer

Nearly resonant charge-exchange reactions for production of polarized protons & deuterons are:

H0 + D+ H+ + D 0

D0 + H+ D+ + H0 ~ 5·10-15cm2

  • The design output current of the SPIis up to 10 mA for D+ ( H+)

  • The D+polarization will be up to 90% of the maximal vector (±1) & tensor (+1,-2) polarization

The SPI-project includes the following stages:

  • development of the high-intensity Source of Polarized Ions

  • complete tests of the SPI

  • modification of the linac pre-accelerator platform & power station

  • remote control system (console of linac) of the SPIunder the high voltage

  • SPI & Linac runs with polarized beam and polarization measurements at the linac output

• Input: 400 vac Delta / 3 phase / 47-63 Hz• Output: 3 Single Phase outputs each at 230v intended to be connected in Wye configuration yielding 3 phase at 400v between lines• Total Weight: 600 kg

The NUCLOTRON feature is that the injection is possible only for positive ions

Therefore it is expedient to use the source of positive polarized deuterium ions

Note:The highest intensity of the beam is reached forpositive polarized ion sources with charge-exchange plasma ionizer and the storage cell

  • SPI-sourceassumes to convert the charge-exchange ionizer of CIPIOS into the ionizer using storage of polarized deuterium atoms and production of positive polarizeddeuterons by resonance charge-exchange in the hydrogen plasma

The ionizer with storage ofpolarized atoms for the SPI allows

- increase intensity of the polarized D+ beam,

- reduce emittance of the polarized beam

- considerablyreduce H2+ion current which isdifficult to be separated from polarized D+ due to similar mass of the ions.

The optimum nozzle temperature is about 27 K

The optimum feed rate is about 0.045 mbar · l/pulse

The averaged beam intensities are estimated as

The work which is carried out at JINR includes

  • assembly and tests of the charge-exchangeplasmaionizer,

    including the storage cell in the ionization volume

  • optimization of the ion-optical system up to 25keV and transport

    of the high-current deuteron beam

  • long-term tests of the SPIwith the storage cell in theionizer

    - polarimetry of the accelerated beam at the output of linac

    It is necessary to developcontrol system components for primary analysis & data acquisition and for fiberoptic system of data transmission
