Emittance improvements of cesiated RF-driven H$$^{-}$$ ion source to enable 60 mA operation of high-energy and high-intensity LINACs by plasma impurity controls

Ueno, Akira ; Okoshi, Kiyonori ; Ikegami, Kiyoshi*; Takagi, Akira*; Oguri, Hidetomo 

At the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), the operation of a 400-MeV linear accelerator (LINAC) with an extraction H$$^{-}$$ ion beam intensity of 60 mA is under investigation. This intensity is 20% higher than the 50 mA achieved by the J-PARC LINAC and about 50% higher than those of operating similar LINACs in the world. Recently, the J-PARC cesiated RF-driven H$$^{-}$$ ion source successfully produces a beam enabling the 60 mA operation. A 66-mA beam with 95%-beam transverse normalized rms emittance of 0.23 $$pi$$mm$$cdot$$mrad is produced by controlling the impurities of argon, nitrogen and water molecules in the hydrogen plasma and tuning rod-filter-field.
