    The Spallation Neutron Source Ring accumulates about 1060 pulses of 38mA peak current 1GeV H-minus particles from the Linac thru the HEBT line, then delivers this accumulated beam in a single pulse to the mercury target via the RTBT line. Bunching frequency of beam in the HEBT line is 402.5MHz,...
