Continuously Cooled Superconducting Linear Accelerator and Particle Separator Models at 4.4 and 2°K
A superconducting prototype linear accelerator for protons of 60 MeV and a radio-frequency particle separator are being developed at this Institute. The prototype accelerator , which should demonstrate the feasibility of a large high-current accelerator, will be composed of a 10-m helix type structure for acceleration from 0.8- to 20-MeV, running at 90 MHz, and a 15-m disc-loaded type structure at 720 MHz for acceleration to the final energy of 60 MeV. The particle separator [2,3] which is provided for K—π-meson separation in the 10 GeV range at the 28-GeV proton synchrotron at CERN, Geneva, consists of two deflectors arranged in series to be installed at a distance of 20 or 50 m.
