Application of Crystal Elements for Charged Particle Beam Steering and Radiation Beam Generation on the U-70 Synchrotron
Works on the formation of particle and radiation beams using particle channeling and reflection in oriented crystals have been carried out at IHEP over a number of years. Comprehensive theoretical and experimental studies have led to the creation of actually operating systems on the U-70 accelerator. In particular, a slow proton beam extraction with unprecedentedly high parameters, an extraction efficiency of about 85% at a beam intensity of 1012 particles per cycle, has been realized on U-70 using particle channeling in short bent crystals. Experiments to implement the method of particle reflection in crystals for beam extraction and collimation have been carried out on U-70. At present, crystal elements are used in regular U-70 runs and provide half of the particle beams for physical experiments. We summarize the results of this unique experience in the world practice of accelerators and outline its prospects.
