Error study of a novel non-linear, nonscaling FFAG

IPAC 2010 - 1st International Particle Accelerator Conference (2010) 555-557

DJ Kelliher, S Machida, SL Sheehy

A novel nonlinear, nonscaling FFAG ring has been designed for proton and ion acceleration [1]. It can be used for proton and carbon therapy as well as a proton driver for various facilities such as a high intensity neutrino factory. The machine has novel features including variable energy extraction and a high repetition rate of about 1 kHz. Taking as an example the PAMELA proton ring, under study at the John Adams Institute in Oxford, we present results of an error study. A calculation of alignment tolerance is made, in which the effects of translational misalignments of the triplet magnets are included. The effect of misalignments on the dynamic aperture of the machine is investigated.
