Webinar: Multiphysics and tracking in Radio Frequency fields

This webinar concentrated on the  simulation of particle accelerators, analysing Opera's capabilities in the design and analysis of RF and charged particle systems, and in multi-physics. We will look at, for example, where RF and beam power deposition increase component temperatures, with consequent stress and deformation. Although this webinar was based on simulating the components [...] Posted in Charged Particle Devices,Electron Beam Guns,Ion Beam Sources,Linear Beam Tubes,Particle Beam Therapy,Space Charge Ion Beam Compensation

Kinetic Plasma Simulation of Ion Beam Extraction from an ECR Ion Source

Authors S.M. Elliott, J. Simkin, E.K. White Abstract Designing optimized ECR ion beam sources can be streamlined by the accurate simulation of beam optical properties in order to predict ion extraction behavior. The complexity of these models, however, can make PIC-based simulations time-consuming. In this paper, we first describe a simple kinetic plasma finite element […]

Three Dimensional Simulation of Ion Beam Extraction from an ECR Ion Source

Authors S.M. Elliott, O. Delferrière, J. Simkin, E.K. White Abstract Accurate prediction of ECR ion extraction behavior is important for high current density operation and subsequent beam transport calculations. In this paper we review the combined electric and magnetic space charge beam simulation of ion beam formation from an ECR ion source with a multi-electrode […]

Design and Simulation of a Cusp Gun for Gyro-Amplifier Application in High Frequency RF Accelerators

Authors D.H. Rowlands, W. He, C.G. Whyte, A.R. Young, A.W. Cross, A.D.R. Phelps, E.G. Rafferty, C.W. Robertson, K. Ronald and J. Thomson Abstract Gyro-amplifiers have potential as the high frequency RF drivers for particle accelerators. They require relativistic electron beams with low velocity spread and with a high fraction of the electron energy associated with […]

Eddy Current studies from the Undulator-Based positron source target wheel prototype

Authors I.R. Bailey, C. Brown, J.A. Clarke, J. Gronberg, L. Hagler, L.J. Jenner, T. Piggott, D.J. Scott, L. Zang Abstract The efficiency of future positron sources for the next generation of high-energy particle colliders (e.g. ILC, CLIC, LHeC) can be improved if the positron-production target is immersed in the magnetic field of adjacent capture optics. […]
