Development of a vertical collimator at the mebt1 of J-PARC linac

Sugimura, Takashi*; Maruta, Tomofumi*; Hirano, Koichiro 

There is an upgrade plan of J-PARC (Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex) Linac from currently operated beam parameters such as, beam current of 40 mA, beam pulse width of 0.5msec and repetition of 25 Hz, to 50 mA, 0.5msec and 50 Hz, respectively. To reduce beam loss during a beam acceleration is a must task to accelerate a high power beam. At J-PARC Linac, a beam from an ion source followed by RFQ (Radio Frequency Quadrupole) injected into a series of DTLs (Drift Tube Linac) through a MEBT1 (Medium Energy Beam Transport 1), where a beam matching and a beam pulse forming are carried out at the beam energy of 3 MeV. There are some locally activated spots in DTL area at the current beam power level so that some kind of mitigation measure is required. Beam simulation results show that the beam loss at the DTL area can be reduced if there is a pair of vertical beam collimators. This paper reports a design and fabrication status of new vertical collimators.
