A 175MHz RFQ design for IFMIF project

Maebara, Sunao; Moriyama, Shinichi; Sugimoto, Masayoshi; Saito, Yuichi*; Saigusa, Mikio*

The IFMIF is an accelerator-based neutron irradiation facility employing the D-Li stripping reaction. The required beam current of 250 mA is realized by two beam lines of 125mA, and the output energies at injector, RFQ and DTL were designed to be 0.1, 5 and 40 MeV, respectively. The operation frequency of 175MHz was selected to accelerate the large current of 125mA. After an intensive beam simulation, the RFQ with a total length of 12m was designed to keep the minimum emittance growth with the RF injection power of 2.3MW CW. For such a 175MHz RFQ, a design for RF input coupler with loop antenna and co-axial window, supplying RF power shared by 3 $$times$$ 4 ports, was conducted by using MW-Studio code. In order to withstand the voltage exceeding 200kW CW per one loop antenna, the co-axial line of 4 1/16" diameter is necessary, and it is found that the electric field distortion factor less than 1% can be achieved in beam bore only by employing the 4-loop antenna configuration providing the same power for each quadrants.
