Title PIP: A Low Energy Recycling Non-scaling FFAG for Security and Medicine
Abstract PIP, the Pro­ducer of In­ter­act­ing Pro­tons, is a low en­ergy (6-10 MeV) pro­ton nsFFAG de­sign that uses a sim­ple 4-cell lat­tice. Low en­ergy re­ac­tions in­volv­ing the cre­ation of spe­cific nu­clear states can be used for neu­tron pro­duc­tion and for the man­u­fac­ture of var­i­ous med­ical iso­topes. Un­for­tu­nately a beam rapidly loses en­ergy in a tar­get and falls below the res­o­nant en­ergy. A re­cy­cling ring with a thin in­ter­nal tar­get en­ables the par­ti­cles that did not in­ter­act to be re-ac­cel­er­ated and used for sub­se­quent cy­cles. The in­crease in emit­tance due to scat­ter­ing in the tar­get is par­tially coun­tered by the re-ac­cel­er­a­tion, and ac­com­mo­dated by the large ac­cep­tance of the nsFFAG. The ring is es­sen­tially isochro­nous, the fields pro­vide strong fo­cussing so that losses are small, the com­po­nents are sim­ple, and it could be built at low cost with ex­ist­ing tech­nol­ogy.
