NORMA - A normal-conducting, scaling racetrack FFAG

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We present a design for a 30-350 MeV scaling racetrack FFAG accelerator for medical application - NORMA (NOrmal-conducting Racetrack Medical Accelerator)-which utilises normal-conducting magnets. NORMA consists of 12 FDF triplet cells with a maximum drift length of ∼2 m; an additional drift space inserted into two places forms a racetrack lattice with enough space for injection/extraction. Optimisation routines in PyZgoubi are used to find optimum cell parameters and working point.
