Title Longitudinal Dynamics Studies for ISIS Upgrades
Abstract ISIS is the world’s most productive pulsed neutron and muon source, located at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK. Operation is centred on a loss-limited 50 Hz proton synchrotron which accelerates 3e13 protons per pulse from 70 MeV to 800 MeV, delivering a mean beam power of 0.2 MW. Recent upgrade studies at ISIS have centred on a new 180 MeV linac for injection into the existing ring offering the possibility of beam powers in the 0.5 MW regime through reduction in space charge and optimised injection. A central and critical aspect of any upgrade is the longitudinal dynamics. Several injection schemes have been modelled longitudinally that meet the key design constraints including minimising halo, maximising the bunching factor and satisfying the Keil-Schnell-Boussard (KSB) stability criterion throughout acceleration. Longitudinal designs are currently being optimised to incorporate all the requirements for full 3D dynamics. These modified designs will be presented together with an outline of planned investigations into the detailed validity of the KSB criterion for the ISIS synchrotron.
