IsoDAR@YEMILAB and its next-generation proton cyclotron

Roger Barlow (University of Huddersfield (GB))


The IsoDAR cyclotron design, for a neutrino experiment at YEMILAB, Korea, produces $60\,$MeV protons with a beam current of $10\,$mA. This is an order of magnitude larger than that from conventional machines and will be a game changer for medical isotope production.

This is achieved through three innovations: use of $\rm H_{2}^{+}$ as the accelerated particle, deploying an RFQ in place of the usual LEBT system, and harnessing the 'vortex motion' of the high current beam to reduce the transverse beam dimension. These will be explained, and the current status and prospects outlined.
