[en] A linear accelerator system includes a plurality of post-coupled drift-tubes wherein each post coupler is bistably positionable to either of two positions which result in different field distributions. With binary control over a plurality of post couplers, a significant accumlative effect in the resulting field distribution is achieved yielding a variable-energy drift-tube linear accelerator
[en] The history of the drift-tube linear accelerator (linac) for the first 35 years of its existence is briefly reviewed. Both US and foreign experience is included. Particular attention is given to technological improvements, operational reliability, capital investment, and number of personnel committed to drift-tube linac (DTL) development. Preliminary data indicate that second- and third-generation (post-1960) DTLs have, in the US alone, operated for a combined total period of more than 75 machine-years and that very high reliability (>90%) has been achieved. Existing US drift-tube linacs represent a capital investment of at least $250 million (1983). Additional statistical evidence, derived from the proceedings of the last 11 linear accelerator conferences, supports the view that the DTL has achieved a mature technological base. The report concludes with a discussion of important recent advances in technology and their applications to the fourth generation of DTLs, many of which are now becoming operational
[en] A short description of the drift tubes of the barrel-muon detector of CMS is given. The first part presents the current status of the design and performance. The second part deals with the development of the design since the very beginning. (orig.)
[en] The proton engineering frontier project (PEFP) is developing a 100 MeV proton linear accelerator. The installation of the linac cavities has been finished in the accelerator tunnel at Gyeongju site. The alignment and beam commissioning is scheduled at the end of this year and the early 2013, respectively. In the beam commissioning process, we will use a well known phase scan method which determines the operating points of the RF amplitude and phase for each DTL tank. We are now developing an RF set point program for the phase scan method. This work summarized the present status of the program development
[en] The CMS muon barrel drift tubes system has been recently fully installed and commissioned in the experiment. The performance and the current status of the detector are briefly presented and discussed.
[en] We are designing two electron lenses that will be installed at RHIC IR10 to compensate for the head-on beam-beam effect. To clear accumulated scattered electrons from 100 GeV proton-electron head-on collisions in the e-lens, a clearing split electrode may be constructed. The feasibility of this proposed electrode was demonstrated via the CST Particle Studio and Opera program simulations. By splitting one of the drift tubes in the e-lens and applying ∼ 380 V across the two parts, the scattered electrons can be cleared out within several hundred micro-seconds. At the same time we can restrict the unwanted shift of the primary electron-beam that already passed the 2-m interaction region in e-lens, to less than 15um.
[en] 20MeV DTL (Drift Tube Linac) is being developed as a low energy proton accelerator by PEFP (Proton Engineering Frontier Project). A DTL cavity consists of several tens of cells, and the errors of resonant frequency and accelerating field profile of the DTL cavity produced by machining and alignment errors can be adjusted and corrected by using slug tuners. To reduce time and effort to tune the cavity, tuning method including resonant frequency adjustment and field profile correction was developed. To validate the tuning method, numerical simulation about the first tank of the DTL was carried out. In this paper, the summary of the proposed tuning method and the simulation results are presented
[en] A prime goal of the mechanical design effort associated with the PIGMI (Pion Generator for Medical Irradiations) program is to investigate new materials and fabrication techniques in an effort to obtain increased machine efficiency and reliability at a reasonable cost. The following discussion deals with the modeling program that LASL is pursuing for 450-MHz and 1350-MHz PIGMI development. (author)
