Initiatives - HRIBF ORIC Axial Injection
ORIC operations can be improved considerably by changing the
present internal ion source to an external ion source using
axial injection. The axial injection line can support multiple
ion sources and be located within a shielded area permitting
servicing of one ion source while the other is providing beam.
Fig. 1 - Proposed design of the electrostatic spiral inflector.Some advantages of this project are given below.
Fig. 2 - Floorplan showing the proposed location of the external ion source.This project is expected to cost approximately 1.2 M dollars but would result in considerable down time (6-9 months) for ORIC as significant changes to the cyclotron's dee structure will have to be performed. At present, we anticipate beginning this project in FY 2010. However, if the electron driver project were to be funded, we would coordinate both projects in order to minimize down time.
