EUROPEAN LIGHT ION MEDICAL ACCELERATOR

Objective


The production of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and neon beams, both in a continuous mode for injection in a cyclotron and in a pulsed mode for injection in a synchrotron, has been studied. Electron cyclotron resonance ion sources (ECRIS) of the latest generation will deliver intensities of completely stripped light ions several order of magnitude above what is needed for the cyclotron option. Efficient radio frequency cavities have been designed in order to increase the beam energy from its low value near the injection region to the high value desired for the European light ion medical accelerator (EULIMA) medical applications.
