Modeling space charge in an ffag with zgoubi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Zgoubi particle tracker uses a ray tracing algorithm that can accurately track particles with large offset from any reference momentum and trajectory, making it suitable for FFAGs. In high current FFAGs, for example an ADSR driver, space charge has a significant effect on the beam. A transverse space charge model was added to Zgoubi using the interface pyZgoubi. The magnets are sliced and a space charge kick is applied between each slice. Results are presented for an ADSR driver lattice. Copyright © 2012 by IEEE.
