Accelerator Physics and Engineering Seminars

Below is a list of seminars related to the Accelerator Science and Engineering Traineeship (ASET) program.

The ASET program at MSU leverages unique campus-based equipment, systems, and experts at FRIB and NSCL, extensive ASET faculty and research support in several MSU academic programs, and resources at U.S. Department of Energy national laboratories.

The Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS) Multi-User Upgrade and New Applications
Brahim Mustapha, Argonne National Laboratory

Talk abstract: The recently approved multi-user upgrade of the ATLAS facility at Argonne will enable simultaneous acceleration and delivery of two different ion beams to different experimental areas. In the initial phase, one stable, nearly continuous-wave beam from the Electron Cyclotron Resonance ion source, and one pulsed radioactive beam from the Electron Beam Ion Source charge breeder of the Californium Rare Isotope Beam Upgrade (CARIBU-EBIS) will be interleaved in time via a pulsed electrostatic deflector at injection, and accelerated through the first two sections of the linac. At that point, one of the beams is deflected via a pulsed switching magnet to a lower energy experimental area while the other is further accelerated through the third linac stage of ATLAS and delivered to a higher energy experimental area. Details of the proposed implementation and the expected gains from this upgrade will be presented. In addition to enhancing the ATLAS nuclear physics program, this upgrade will also increase the availability of beam time for applications such as material irradiation, isotope production, and radiobiology studies with ion beams. A brief overview and typical results from these applications will be presented.
