Title Extending the Energy Range of 50Hz Proton FFAGs
Abstract Using an FFAG for rapid-cycling proton acceleration has the advantage that the acceleration cycle is no longer subject to constraints from the main magnet power supply used in an RCS. The RF can be used to its maximum potential to increase the energy range in a short 50Hz cycle as proposed for multi-MW proton driver projects. The challenge becomes an optical one of maintaining a stable lattice across a wide range of beam momenta without magnet sizes or the ring circumference making the machine prohibitively expensive for its purpose. Investigations of stable energy ranges for proton FFAG lattices in the few GeV regime (relativistic but not ultra-relativistic) are presented here.
