- Ming-Chyuan Lin
ESS-Bilbao is a leading proton science research center in Spain that carries out different projects in particle accelerator field. One of the recently accomplished projects is a novel solid-state based RF power source as a replacement for an old klystron of the ECR ION Source (ISHP) that will feed an RFQ, also designed and developed at ESS-Bilbao, to accelerate proton beam up to 3MeV at its...
We present the status of the RF upgrade of the SLS2.
We will describe the progress in different areas of the SLS2 accelerator complex concentrating on the RF infrastructure.
The chronology of the upgrade including the commissioning of components is also presented.
Elettra has delivered 27 Radio Frequency Power Station (RFPS) - 400 kW 352 MHz Amplifiers - to the European Spallation Source ERIC (ESS ERIC) in an In-Kind (IK) collaboration frame. These RFPSs, 26 equivalent units plus 1 spare unit, will feed the Spoke cavity section of the proton Linac. The RFPS is a custom made machine. Its manufacturing has been awarded to European Science Solutions Srl...
