NTG has lots of experience in the field of accelerator design and manufacturing, especially in the field of RFQ accelerators. RFQs have been developed with us for a wide variety of applications. The 4-rod structure invented by Prof. Dr. A. Schempp was chosen frequently and with great success for example as a compact replacement for very large high voltage injection systems (Cockroft Walton). In the field of medical application this structure appears in the form of an integrated RFQ-Drifttube combination, which became a substantial part of a treatment facility for Cancer-Therapy for example in the new Klinikum in Heidelberg.
Most recent efforts are taken to develop high power RFQs providing high intensity ion beams for e.g. isotope production for medical application and in the field of basic research. Intense neutron spallation sources for material research (IFMIF) require powerful primary driver beams. An interesting application yields the possibility of nuclear waste transmutation in significantly less problematic products (EUROTRANS). - The SARAF-CW-RFQ is our first approach to get to such high power machines. This 4-rod-type RFQ is designed for 62.5 kW per meter structure length, which exceeds the ever realized value with this type structure by a factor of 3.
RFQ accelerator are our specialty. If you intend to accelerate ions up to 4 MeV, please consult us. We also gladly provide competent advice regarding beam dynamics and rf-design. mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org
