Title Conceptual Design Study of the Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) Target and Beam Window
Abstract This is the final report of a feasibility/design study into pion production target and beam window concepts for the proposed Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment at FNAL. The work is the result of an Accord signed in December 2009 between Fermilab and STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory for ‘The conceptual design study of Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) 2 MW Target Components’. The objectives of this study were to investigate beryllium and beryllium alloys as alternative materials to the directly water cooled graphite target that is the current LBNE baseline target technology [1]. A further objective was to study candidate materials and outline designs for a vacuum-to-air beam window for entry of the proton beam to the Target Station. The proton beam power specified for this study was 2 or 2.3 MW at beam energies of 60 or 120 GeV respectively, the highest power envisaged for the LBNE facility. This is to ensure that the final focusing section of the proton driver and the target station infrastructure are designed to permit such an upgrade after operation and activation. However, since the initial design of the facility is for 700 kW operation, design options for this lower beam power were also considered. Each section in the report ends with a summary of findings for 700 kW operation and for 2-2.3 MW operation.
