  1. Advanced Accelerator Test Facilities at Daresbury Laboratory Peter McIntosh (STFC Daresbury Laboratory) 2nd PASI Workshop, RAL April 3 - 5, 2013

  2. Overview • Daresbury Test Facilities: • ALICE: • SRF Cryomodule R&D • RF Control – Microphonics and Lorenz Detuning • EMMA NS-FFAG: • Beam Dynamics Studies • RF Control – Vector Sum Architecture • VELA: • Deflecting Cavity Diagnostics • Collaborative Opportunities • Conclusions

  3. ALICE ERL Facility 8 MeV Compressor Photoinjector Laser IR-FEL Booster 35 MeV 8 MeV Acceleration • ALICE at Daresbury Laboratory operates using Energy Recovery principle. • Only accelerator of its type in Europe. • Used as an R&D test facility for next generation electron beam technology development.

  4. ALICE Operating Parameters

  5. New SRF Cryomodule • Collaboration formulated in early 2006 to design and fabricate new CW cryomodule and validate with beam. • Dimensioned to fit on the ALICE ERL facility at Daresbury: • Same cryomodule footprint. • Same cryo/RF interconnects. • ‘Plug Compatible’ with existing cryomodule.

  6. CM Component Testing Saclay-II tuner with wider aperture and low voltage piezocartridges, pinned and stress tested. Modified Cornell ERL injector coupler with a shortened cold section, high power conditioned. DESY superstructures (7Z2 & 7Z4) modified to incorporate optimised end groups. Cavities, cold couplers and central HOM absorbers installed. Cryomodule assembled & undergoing final cold testing.

  7. Assembly and Integration

  8. DLLRF Implementation • LLRF4 • Designed at LBNL by L.Doolittle • Open source • Xilinx spartan3 FPGA • 4 -14 bit ADC Channels • 2 -14 bit DAC's • USB comms • Clock management chip • Cost ~$3k, built and tested • System installed in 2011 on NC buncher cavity. • To also install on SRF cavities: • 1.3 GHz. • High Q Superconducting Cavities. • 4ms pulse & CW • Fast feedback • Feed Forward for beam loading compensation.

  9. EMMA NS-FFAG EMMA is the only accelerator of its type in the world! http://www.stfc.ac.uk/ASTeC/Programmes/17426.aspx

  10. Applications of NS-FFAGs • Proton & Carbon Therapy • Neutrino Factory High power proton driver • Accelerator driven reactor • Dedicated Muon Source

  11. EMMA Objectives • Fixed energy operation to map closed orbits and tunes vs momentum • Many lattice configurations • Vary ratio of dipole to quadrupole fields • Vary frequency, amplitude and phase of RF cavities • Map longitudinal and transverse acceptances with probe beam from ALICE • EMMA is heavily instrumented with beam diagnostics

  15. Optimising RF for Acceleration • ToF zero crossing of each cavity to find optimum phase angle. • Beam loading effects could be seen on Libera system during phase optimisation. • Possibility to zero cross each cavity, tune for maximum acceleration. • Close Libera RF control loop to keep track of the correct phase of the system: • phase accumulator is reset during sweep. • LLRF control essential in order to achieve successful beam acceleration.

  17. VELA – Versatile Electron Linear Accelerator (ex EBTF) • For the development and testing of novel and compact accelerator technologies. • Through partnership with industry and the scientific community. • Aimed at addressing applications in medicine, health, security, energy, industrial processing and science. • Will enable research into areas of accelerator technologies which have the potential to revolutionise the cost, compactness and efficiency of such systems. • The main element of the infrastructure:- high performance and flexible electron beam injector facility feeding customised state-of-the-art testing enclosuresand associated support infrastructure. • Critical for development of underpinning technologies; • Advanced Beam Diagnostics, • Accelerating and Dipole Mode RF Structures, • RF Sources and Distribution Systems, • Vacuum Systems, • Magnet Systems, • Beam-based Feedback and Control Systems, • Beam Synchronisation Systems.
