Acceleration rate of ordinary synchrotron is limited bythe ramping speed of magnet (magnet PS :V=L·dI/dt, eddy loss: rot E+dB/dt=0) Acceleration rate of fixed field accelerator is limited by acceleration scheme (in principle, no limitation) * No tuning knob after construction!! JAI Advisory Board Meeting**In linear lattice… ∆ B x**Acceptance of NS-FFAG : why so large? Acceptance is the region in the phase space in which beam can survive during the whole process of an operation cycle.Acceptance is closely related to the operation process. • The magic in NS-FFAG is “LINEAR LATTICE” • Focusing property has NO amplitude dependence Physical aperture limits the acceptance. (“no dynamic aperture”) Acceleration rate is the key to ensure large acceptance JAI Advisory Board Meeting**x’**As amplitude gets larger, focusing force gets stronger non-linearly. x Large amplitude beam is lost when it hits resonance In scaling FFAG, operation point is the key In scaling FFAG, operation point is the key Large acceptance is realized through field distribution, and transverse dynamics are decoupled to longitudinal dynamics Acceptance of Scaling FFAG In Scaling FFAG, higher order fields inevitably contain JAI Advisory Board Meeting**Fast asynchronous acceleration**(In EMMA, Acceleration completes within 10turns(~500ns)) * It is originally for muon accelerator for neutrino factory x’ 10MeV Field error Field error • Fixed frequency rf is available for relativistic particle due to small variation of path length /cell x 20MeV /cell |df/f|~0.1% 20MeV TOF/turn(ns) EMMA is a unique system to observe the transient process of resonance precisely.
