Request for a new activity in accelerator R&D from SEWD The Committee understands that powerful new accelerator technologies created for basic science and developed by industry will produce particle accelerators with the potential to address key economic and societal issues confronting our Nation. However, the Committee is concerned with the divide that exists in translating breakthroughs in accelerator science and technology into applications that benefit the marketplace and American competitiveness. The Committee directs the Department to submit a … 10-year strategic plan … for accelerator technology research and development to advance accelerator applications in energy and the environment, medicine, industry, national security, and discovery science. The strategic plan should be based on the results of the Department's 2010 workshop study, Accelerators for America's Future, that identified the opportunities and research challenges for next-generation accelerators and how to improve coordination between basic and applied accelerator research. The strategic plan should also identify the potential need for demonstration and development facilities to help bridge the gap between development and deployment. Senate Report 112-075, p. 93.

SLAC Accelerator R&D Task Force Report (May 2012)The follow-on to Accelerators for America’s Future “… In order to foster the advancement of the application of accelerator technology for issues of national importance, it is essential that new relationships be formed and nurtured between those who are empowered to develop this technology and those who are the ultimate beneficiaries of this technology. …” http://www.acceleratorsamerica.org/report/index.html Accelerator R&D Task Force ReportMay 2012 IBT Workshop & Demo Facility Briefing - MZ/EC

Schematic of Proposed Program Organization SC Policy Committee: ADs of ASCR, BES, and NP. Individual boards provide advice on specific topical areas based on assessments of the AfAF Report and the Task Force Report and on direct community engagement. IBT Workshop & Demo Facility Briefing - MZ/EC
Next Steps • Immediately augment existing programs to provide opportunities for industrial users at DOE facilities by increasing support staff and funding for beam test facilities, such as FACET. • completed survey of available national lab infrastructure and capabilities • results on next slides • In the mid-term (2–5 years), identify a few topical areas with high impact for focused work. Areas identified are: (1) improved particle beam delivery and control for cancer therapy facilities; and (2) laser development addressing the needs of the accelerator community, i.e., high peak power, high average power, and high electrical efficiency. Each topical area will have a stakeholder board. • In the longer term (5–10 years), select additional topical areas for focused work. New stakeholder boards will be created as topics are identified. • In steady state, SC/HEP goal is to support at least three topical areasat any given time.

DOE SC Facility Survey Results (1) • In addition to broad expertise in accelerator and component design, specialized infrastructure exists • Lab infrastructure falls mainly into these categories: • RF test facilities (RF power sources, cryogenic test stands, processing capabilities, clean rooms) • both conventional and SC structures can be accommodated • available at ANL, BNL, FNAL, Jlab, ORNL, SLAC • magnet test facilities (power supplies, cryogenic test stands, field mapping) • both conventional and SC magnets can be accommodated • available at BNL, FNAL, LBNL, ORNL, SLAC • superconducting cable/strand preparation and testing facilities (cabling equipment, heat treatment ovens, clean rooms) • available at BNL, FNAL, LBNL IBT Workshop & Demo Facility Briefing - MZ/EC
DOE SC Facility Survey Results (2) • beam test facilities (electrons, neutrons, protons, light and heavy ions) • includes particle sources, transport lines, diagnostics, laser-driven accelerators • available at ANL, BNL, FNAL, LBNL, ORNL, SLAC • fabrication and materials characterization facilities (high accuracy NC machine tools, CMMs, e-beam welders, wire edm, chemical cleaning, electro-polishing, SEMs, laser trackers, coating systems, remote handling,…) • available at all national laboratories • high-performance computing expertise • includes finite-element calculations, general accelerator design, nonlinear beam dynamics and beam transport, radiation shielding, electromagnetic modeling • available at all national laboratories IBT Workshop & Demo Facility Briefing - MZ/EC
Longer-term Activities • After initial activities launched, other user areas will be systematically examined for candidate topics • defense & security, energy, environment, industry • Whether activities maintained in all areas simultaneously or only a few depends on out-year resources • trained people, not funding, may well be the limiting resource • education/training remain a high priority • Potential need for demonstration facilities addressed by stakeholder boards (on case-by-case basis) • these are large investments, beyond what a stewardship program can likely support • if needed, must become projects in their own right • Stewardship program manager, with help from stakeholder boards, will maintain contact with user communities IBT Workshop & Demo Facility Briefing - MZ/EC
Topics for the issue roundtable Accelerator Stewardship: Recommend a topical area for a future focused DOE sponsored accelerator workshop Industrialization: Recommendations on how industry can interact early with the labs on accelerator R&D. How can tech transfer be improved Communications: Statements on how a strong US industry involvement increases capability and leads to more US jobs. Specific positive examples if possible ILC: The SPAFOA BOD will develop a statement for the press on our support for US role in the ILC. Any input on the wording? Other topics from the floor?
