  We present the results of the studies of the physics of high intensity proton seams at the 8 GeV Fermilab Booster RCS carried out in Spring 2019. The Booster studies span a variety of beam physics topics ’ The discovery of a new convective beam instability, an investigation of power-supply ripple in the Booster gradient dipoles, a characterization of space-charge induced emittance growth, optimization of adiabatic capture, a study of periodicity in the Booster, nonlinear chromaticity measurements, and transverse impedance measurements. The results will help prepare the Booster for the upcoming PIP-II intensity upgrades and inform next-generation RCS design.

  The main objective of the MYRRHA project at SCK•CEN, the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, is to demonstrate the feasibility of nuclear waste transmutation using an Accelerator Driven System (ADS). It is based on a High Power CW operated 600 MeV proton Linac with an average beam power of 2.4 MW. Due to the coupling of the accelerator with a subcritical reactor, a major concern is reliability and availability of the accelerator. The MYRRHA Linac consists of a room temperature 17 MeV Injector based on CH-cavities and the superconducting main Linac using different RF structures as Single Spokes, Double-Spokes and elliptical cavities. In 2017, it has been decided to stage the project and to start with the construction of a 100 MeV Linac (Injector and Single Spoke section) including a 400 kW proton target station. This facility (MINERVA) will be operational in 2026 aiming to evaluate the reliability potential of the 600 MeV Linac. The Front-End consisting of an ECR source, LEBT and 1.5 MeV RFQ is already operational while the first 7 CH-cavities are under construction. The presentation gives an overview about the MYRRHA Project, its challenges and the status of construction and testing.

The beam commissioning of linac segment 1 (LS1) composed of fifteen cryomodules consisting of total 104 superconducting (SC) resonators and 36 SC solenoids was successfully completed. Four ion beam species, Ne, Ar, Kr and Xe were successfully accelerated up to 20.3 MeV/u. The FRIB driver linac in its current configuration became the highest energy continuous wave hadron linac. We will report a detailed study of beam dynamics in the LS1 prior to and after stripping with a carbon foil.

Modern high-power accelerators are charged with delivering reliable beam with low losses. Resolving the complex dynamics arising from space charge and nonlinear forces requires detailed models of the accelerator and particle-in-cell simulation. There has historically been discrepancy between simulated and measured beam distributions, particularly at the low-density halo level. The Beam Test Facility (BTF) at the Spallation Neutron Source is outfitted to study beam evolution in a high-power linear accelerator MEBT. This includes capability for high-dimensional measurements of the post-RFQ beam distribution, including interplane correlations that may be the key to accurate simulation. Beam is transported through a 4.6 m FODO channel (9.5 cells) to a second distribution measurement stage. Plans for validating simulations against BTF measurements of beam evolution in the FODO channel are discussed.

The Low Energy RHIC electron Cooler (LEReC) was recently constructed and commissioned at BNL. The LEReC is the first electron cooler based on the RF acceleration of electron bunches (previous electron coolers all used DC beams). Bunched electron beams are necessary for cooling hadron beams at high energies. The challenges of such an approach include generation of electron beams suitable for cooling, delivery of electron beams of the required quality to the cooling sections without degradation of beam emittances and energy spread, achieving required small angles between electrons and ions in the cooling sections, precise energy matching between the two beams, high-current operation of the electron accelerator, as well as several physics effects related to bunched beam cooling. Following successful commissioning of the electron accelerator in 2018, the focus of the LEReC project in 2019 was on establishing electron-ion interactions and demonstration of cooling process using electron energy of 1.6MeV (ion energy of 3.85GeV/n), which is the lowest energy of interest. Here we report on the first demonstration of Au ion cooling in RHIC using this new approach.
