A high intensity cylotron complex for driving the Energy Amplifier
"The goal of this accelerator complex is to provide a 10 MW proton beam for driving the Energy Amplifier recently proposed by C. Rubbia . It is lower (by one order of magnitude) than the requirements of most of the accelerator-ddrive projects based on c-w linacs . Therefore, the requirements for the Energy Amplifier open an alternative solution based on ring cyclotrons ,  producing a continous beam. Thus taking into account the present development of high-intensity cylotrons (cf. PSU ), a three-stage cylotron accelerator is a possible solution. It comprises:* the injector(s) which should be able to deliver a 10 mA beam in a given phase width. A solution based on two 5 mA compact isocchronous cyclotrons (CIC) working in parallel is proposed.* the intermediate stage (ISSC) which is a four-separated-sector cylotron accelerating the injected beam up to 120 MeV. * the final booster (BSSC) which has ten separate sectors and six cavities raising the kinetic energy up to about 1000 MeV.
