    The RI Beam Factory (RIBF) is the world-top-class radioactive-isotope (RI) beam facility under construction at RIKEN. This facility is based on in-flight method to produce fast RI beams. High-energy and intense primary beams accelerated by a superconducting ring cyclotron (SRC) are converted via...

    In February 2004, a team of Russian and U.S. scientists reported that they had created two new elements. The two elements have the atomic numbers 113 and 115. An element's atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus of each atom of the element. The first 92 elements in the periodic...

  • Isochronous and Scaling FFAGs. Baartman, R. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2002, Vol. 642 Issue 1, p200 

    We explore the differences between isochronous FFAGs (i.e. cyclotrons) and non-isochronous FFAGs (i.e. where the beam is necessarily pulsed). The general formula for tunes is derived. This is used to understand the acceptances and also the suitability of such machines as high energy and/or high...

    The acceleration of a 2 mA, 590 MeV proton beam has been demonstrated at the PSI High Intensity Cyclotron. The peculiarities of the machine, the operation mode for high currents, and the ongoing upgrade program are discussed. The conceptual design of a 10 MW driver based on the extrapolation of...

  • Design of the flat-top acceleration system for the JAERI AVF cyclotron. Kurashima, S.; Fukuda, M.; Nakamura, Y.; Nara, T.; Agematsu, T.; Ishibori, I.; Tamura, H.; Yokota, W.; Okumura, S.; Arakawa, K.; Kumata, Y.; Fukumoto, Y. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2001, Vol. 600 Issue 1, p303 

    A flat-top acceleration system for the JAERI AVF cyclotron has been designed. The filth harmonic of the fundamental frequency is used to obtain uniform energy gain. To determine optimum parameters of the flat-top system, a cold model test was carded out and flat-top waveforms of the voltages...

    To run the SINQ facility at its design current of 2 mA, the primary beam current of the PSI cyclotrons has to be increased to 3 mA — assuming a transmission factor of the target E of 67%. In the context of a feasibility study on how to accelerate such a beam, we present the necessary...

    From January 2000 the beam delivered from a superconducting ECR source[1] has been injected through the axial beam line in the K-800 superconducting cyclotron[2]. Along the axial hole the beam is bunched by the Axial Buncher, placed at - metre from the median accelerator plane of the cyclotron....
