Title EMMA Commissioning
Abstract EMMA (Electron Machine with Many Applications) is a prototype non-scaling electron FFAG to be hosted at Daresbury Laboratory. NS-FFAGs related to EMMA have an unprecedented potential for medical accelerators for carbon and proton hadron therapy. It also represents a possible active element for an ADSR (Accelerator Driven Sub-critical Reactor). This paper summarises the commissioning plans for this machine together with the major steps and experiments involved along the way. A description of how the 10 to 20 MeV beam is achieved within ALICE is also given, as well as extraction from the EMMA ring to the diagnostics line and then dump.
