Title PAMELA Overview: Design Goals and Principles
Abstract The PAMELA (Particle Accelerator for MEdicaL Applications) project is to design an accelerator for proton and light ion therapy using non-scaling Fixed Field Alternating Gradient (FFAG) accelerators, as part of the CONFORM project, which is also constructing the EMMA electron model of a non-scaling FFAG at Daresbury. This paper presents an overview of the PAMELA design, and a discussion of the design goals and the principles used to arrive at a preliminary specification of the accelerator.
