After the summer shutdown in 2018, the J-PARC restarted user operation in late October. While beam power to the Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) was 500 kW as before the summer shutdown, linac beam current was increased from 40 to 50 mA. Operation of the Main Ring (MR) was suspended due to the modification and/or maintenance of the Superkamiokande (neutrino detector) and Hadron experimental facility. The user operation was resumed in the middle of February for the Hadron experimental facility at 51 kW. But on March 18, one of the bending magnets in the beam transport line to the MR had a failure. It was temporary recovered and restored beam operation on April 5, but the failure occurred again on April 24 and the beam operation of the MR was suspended. In the fiscal year of 2018, the availabilities for the MLF, neutrino and hadron facilities are 94%, 86%, and 74%, respectively.

After the summer shutdown in 2017, the J-PARC restarted user operation in late October. The Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility (MLF) used a spare target and the beam power was limited to 150-200kW. The target was replaced with a new one in the summer shutdown. The beam power was for user operation gradually increased from 300 kW to 500 kW. We have successfully demonstrated 1MW 1hour operation in July 2018. The beam power for the neutrino experimental facility (NU) was 440 kW to 470 kW. The beam was delivered to the hadron experimental facility (HD) from January to February in 2018. The repetition rate of the main ring was shortened from 5.52 to 5.20 seconds, the beam power was increased from 44 to 50 kW. From March 2018, we delivered to the NU at 490 kW stably. In the fiscal year of 2017, the availabilities for the MLF, NU and HD are 93%, 89% and 66%, respectively.

After the summer shutdown in 2016, the J-PARC restarted user operation late in October for the neutrino experiments (NU) and early in November for the materials and life science experimental facility (MLF). The beam power for the NU was 420 kW in May 2016, but increased to 470 kW in February 2017 thanks to the change and optimization of operation parameters. For the hadron experimental facility (HD), we started beam tuning in April, but suspended by a failure of the electro static septum. After the treatment, we delivered beam at the power of 37 kW. We delivered beam at 150kW for the MLF. In the fiscal year of 2016, the linac, the 3 GeV synchrotron (RCS) and the MLF were stable and the availability was high at 93%. On the contrary, the main ring has several failures and the availabilities were 77% and 84% for NU and HD, respectively.

The J-PARC is a high intensity proton facility and the accelerator consists of a 400 MeV linac, a 3 GeV Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) and a 30 GeV Main Ring Synchrotron (MR). We have taken many hardware upgrades such as front end replacement and energy upgrade at the linac, vacuum improvement, collimator upgrade, etc. The beam powers for the neutrino experiment and hadron experiment from the MR have been steadily increased by tuning and reducing beam losses. The designed 1 MW equivalent beam was demonstrated and user program was performed at 500 kW from the RCS to the neutron and muon experiments. We have experienced many failures and troubles, however, to impede full potential and high availability. In this report, operational performance and status of the J-PARC accelerators are presented.

At the J-PARC Main Ring (MR), there have been various investigation carried out at the moment aiming at the beam operation of MW order. As one of the investigations, a study of the Rapid-Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) magnets was implemented. Increase of the extraction energy of RCS was needed to reduce beam loss, as beam loss in the MR injection region was large under influence of Space Charge effect at the injection beam of 3GeV. Therefore conceptual design of the extraction energy upgrade using dipole and quadrupole magnets of RCS was performed. In this paper, we will report the contents of the study in extraction energy upgrade of RCS magnets and problems which became clear as a result.

JPS Conference Proceedings (Internet), 8, p.012012_1 - 012012_6, 2015/09

The 240-kW output beam power in the J-PARC 50-GeV Main Ring (MR) has been achieved for the 30-GeV user operation with the cycle time of 2.48 sec and the injected beam intensity with the output beam power of 380-kW equivalent from 3-GeV Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS). The target of output beam power in MR is 750-kW by faster cycling and the injected beam intensity of 600-kW equivalent beam from the RCS. The MR are developing the new type power supplies of the MR main magnets and the high-impedance core of the MR RF cavities. The RCS will aim the designed output beam power of 1-MW from the beam commissioning on October 2014 after the peak current upgrade of Linac from 30 to 50-mA. For higher beam power of MR, we have explored the accelerator options. As one of options, 8-GeV Booster Ring (BR) is also designed for increasing the injection energy of the MR. The increasement of injection energy leads to the reducing a space charge force and the increasing the acceptance clearance from the physical aperture of the MR. In this paper, the realistic injection and extraction system of the BR and the new injection system of the MR for Multi-MW output beam power are also described.

Now the J-PARC accelerators (Linac, 3GeV RCS, 50GeV MR) are in transition from the initial beam commissioning phase to the final stage aiming for the design output beam power of 1 MW from RCS and 0.75 MW from MR; RCS is to start 1-MW beam tuning from October 2014 after completing the linac upgrade, and MR aims at 0.75 MW within the next 3 years by introducing new main magnet power supplies with the faster cycling time. In view of such current situation, we have started discussions for the future J-PARC accelerator concept toward a Multi-MW output beam power. In this paper, we discuss the feasibility for the introduction of a new 8-GeV booster synchrotron between RCS and MR as one possible option toward a Multi-MW output beam power from MR, in combination with the RCS beam power upgrade from 1 MW to 2 MW.

The J-PARC 3-50BT line is the beam transport line from 3-GeV rapid-cycling synchrotron (RCS) to 50-GeV main ring (MR). The RCS is the high-intensity proton accelerator, where designed beam power is 1 MW, and has the complex source of space charge effect, etc. Therefore, the uncontrolled emittance growth and beam halo increase nonlinearly with the increasing the beam power. Additionally, the physical aperture of MR with 81 $$pi$$ mm mrad is smaller than that of RCS with 486 $$pi$$ mm mrad. Therefore, the 3-50BT line has the collimators in order to remove the tail or halo of the extracted beam from the RCS. The designed collimator aperture is 54 $$pi$$ mm mrad. It is required to measure and optimize the optics parameters in the collimator area for taking full advantage of the beam collimation. Especially, it is very important to make the dispersion functions free in the collimator area and optimize the beta function. This paper will introduce the method of optics measurement and report the result of the measurement and optimization based on the simulation.

After nine-months of beam shutdown by the Great Earthquake in March 2011, the J-PARC facility resumed beam operation. In December 2011, operations were carried out at low duty for beam tuning. At the beginning of January 2012, we started beam tuning at the full repetition rate of 25 Hz at the linac and the 3 GeV Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS). After the tuning, user programs of the Materials and Life Science Experiment Facility (MLF), the Neutrino facility and the Hadron facility started. We have gradually increased beam power for these facilities. We have also demonstrated new record power beyond 500 kW from the RCS. The status and progress of the J-PARC accelerators are presented.

The RCS beam power ramp-up has well proceeded since the start-up of user program in December 2008. So far the RCS has successfully achieved high intensity beam trials up to 420 kW at a low-level intensity loss of less than 1%, and the output beam power for the routine user program has been increased to 210 kW to date. Recently our effort has also been made to improve the quality of the extraction beam, namely to realize low-halo high-power beams. In this paper, recent effort for beam halo reduction in the RCS will be presented.

The J-PARC 3-GeV RCS is a high-power pulsed proton driver aiming at 1 MW output beam power. The RCS was beam commissioned in October 2007 and made available for user operation in December 2008 with an output beam power of 4 kW. Since then, the output beam power of the RCS has been steadily increasing as per progressions of beam tuning and hardware improvements. So far, the RCS has successfully achieved high-intensity beam trials of up to 420 kW at a low-level intensity loss of less than 1%, and the output beam power for the routine user program has been increased to 210 kW. The most important issues in increasing the output beam power are the control and minimization of beam loss to maintain machine activation within the permissible level. This paper presents the recent progress in the RCS beam power ramp-up scenario, with particular emphasis on our efforts for beam loss issues.

Kasokuki, 8(2), p.74 - 80, 2011/07

J-PARC was heavily affected by the March 11 Great East Japan Earthquake. When the earthquake struck, we had a beam study operation of the linac and the machine immediately stopped. We can see subsidence at many places; about 1.5 m over the wide area at the entrance of the linac building, about 50 cm over the area of 1 m $$times$$ 10 m at the main ring building, etc. Underground water is coming into the linac and the main ring tunnels. The water level at the linac reached a depth of 10 cm, but pumping with a diesel generator successfully saved from further flooding. At the RCS, the circulating road went wavy and the yard area for electricity and water devices was heavily distorted. The current status of the J-PARC accelerators after the earthquake is reported.
