Title New Injector for the EMMA ns-FFAG Ring
Abstract EMMA is the world’s first non-scaling FFAG which has recently demonstrated acceleration in the serpentine channel. At present, the electron beam is injected into EMMA from the ALICE accelerator. However, funding will be re-directed to an Electron Beam Test Facility (EBTF) in the near future, therefore, in order to continue the broad portfolio of planned experiments required to characterize non-scaling FFAGs, it essential to consider an alternative injection scheme. In this paper, we propose re-utilizing a thermionic gun and a 12 MeV linac from the SRS (Synchrotron Radiation Source) at Daresbury Laboratory. The paper looks at how the required EMMA beam properties can be matched with this new set-up and the advantages and disadvantages involved.
