Title Design of the LINAC4, A New Injector for the CERN Booster
Abstract A new Hˉ linac (LINAC4) is presently under study at CERN. This accelerator, based on normal conducting structures at 352 and 704 MHz, will provide a 40 mA 160MeV Hˉ beam to the CERN booster, thus overcoming the present space-charge bottleneck at injection with a 50 MeV proton beam. LINAC4 is conceived as the first stage of a future 2.2 GeV superconducting linac (SPL) and it is therefore designed for a higher duty cycle than required for injection in the booster. This paper discusses the design choices, presents the layout of the facility and illustrates the advantages for the LHC and other CERN users. An R&D and construction strategy mainly relying upon international collaborations is also presented.
