Development of a 3 MeV beam scraper for the J-PARC linac

Sugimura, Takashi*; Hirano, Koichiro  ; Nammo, Kesao*; Kurihara, Toshikazu*

By introducing a new ion source and a new RFQ, beam current will increase from 20 mA to 50 mA. According to an increase of the beam current, wasted beam that should not be accelerated in the following accelerator sections also increase. To stop wasted beam, there is a beam scraper in the MEBT region just after the RFQ at the beam energy of 3 MeV. An existing beam scraper is made of carbon composite material and it has a dent caused by merely small beam current of 20 mA in daily operation. A new scraper that endures upgraded beam current of 50 mA is the essential item for the beam power upgrade of J-PARC. Thermal simulations on several materials have been performed with the ANSYS code assuming the upgraded beam power. They revealed that maximum temperatures in a beam cycle are much higher than their melting points in some materials and consequently that lessening of heat load for a scraper by beam operation is an essential factor.
