Superconducting twin quarter wave resonator for acceleration of low velocity heavy ions

Kabumoto, Hiroshi ; Takeuchi, Suehiro; Matsuda, Makoto ; Ishizaki, Nobuhiro ; Otokawa, Yoshinori 

The JAEA-Tokai tandem accelerator was built for basic science researches with heavy ions. Its superconducting booster was developed for increasing the acceleration energy of ions. We have designed and fabricated a superconducting twin-quarter-wave resonator (Twin-QWR) made of niobium and copper for the acceleration of low velocity heavy ions from TRIAC facility. The resonator has two inner conductors and three acceleration gaps which give a resonant frequency of 129.8 MHz and an optimum beam velocity of 6% of the light velocity. Each inner conductor resonates like in a coaxial quarter-wave line resonator. The resonator was designed to have a separatable structure so that we could treat the inner conductors part fully made of high purity niobium apart from the outer conductor made of niobium and copper. We obtained an acceleration field gradient of 5.8 MV/m at an RF power input of 4 W.
