Title NORMA - a normal-conducting, scaling racetrack FFAG
Abstract We present a design for a 30-350 MeV scaling race- track FFAG accelerator for medical application - NORMA (NOrmal-conducting Racetrack Medical Accelerator) - which has utilises normal-conducting magnets. NORMA consists of 12 FDF triplet cells with a maximum drift length of 2 m; an additional drift space inserted into in two places forms a racetrack lattice with enough space for injec- tion/extraction. Optimisation routines in PyZgoubi are used to find optimum cell parameters and working point. The dynamic aperture is investigated with realistic magnet mis- alignments and compared with an equivalent non-racetrack lattice.
