Barlow, Roger and Kolano, Anna (2014) A Precise Beam Dynamics Model of the PSI Injector 2 to Estimate the Intensity Limit. In: Proceedings of the 5th International Particle Accelerator Conference. IPAC 2014 . JACoW, Dresden, Germany, p. 1630.

We describe a precise beam dynamics model of the production set up of the Injector 2 Cyclotron at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI). Injector 2 is a 72 MeV separate-sector cyclotron producing a high intensity proton beam up to 3 mA CW, which is then injected into the 590 MeV Ring Cyclotron. The model includes space charge and is calculated for matched initial conditions. The presented steps are required to estimate the limits to the intensity obtainable from Injector 2. The precise beam dynamics model is based on the OPAL (Object Oriented Parallel Accelerator Library) simulation code, a tool for charged-particle optics calculations in large accelerator structures and beam lines including 3D space charge.
