At Argonne, we have recently developed a conceptual design for a compact linear accelerator for ion beam therapy named ACCIL . A linac-based ion-beam therapy facility offers many advantages over existing synchrotron based facilities. In addition to the reduced footprint, ACCIL offers more flexibility in beam tuning, including pulse-per-pulse energy and intensity modulation and fast switching between ion species. Essential to the compactness of the ACCIL linac are high-gradient structures for low to intermediate velocity ions, capable of accelerating fields of ~ 50 MV/m. For this purpose, we have designed an S-band annular-coupled structure (ACS). An ACS has the desired qualities of high electric field limit, high shunt-impedance, large area for magnetic coupling and good cooling capacity, making it a very promising candidate for high-gradient operations. We here present the optimized RF design for a β ~ 0.4 ACS.
