Abstract

An upgrade program for increase of beam intensity and improvement of beam quality is in progress at the cyclotron facility of Research Center for Nuclear Physics(RCNP). A 2.45 GHz ECR proton source was modified to increase 392 MeV proton beam intensity. Rated output power of a microwave power supply was increased from 200 W to 2 kW. A water-cooled waveguide system for high power microwave transfer is being installed for the proton source. A 15 keV proton beam with intensity of 0.6 mA was stably produced for output microwave power of 200 W. Emittance of 50 to 100 mm-mrad was obtained for 0.05 to 0.1 mA proton beams in the LEBT system. Beam transmission, defined by the ratio of the beam intensity between a Faraday cup placed in the axial injection beam line and an inflector electrode of the AVF cyclotron, was improved from 25 % for a 0.07 mA proton beam to more than 90 % for 0.03 mA, which indicated that the beam transmission was limited by the acceptance of the axial injection beam line. A new active gradient corrector is being designed for horizontal beam focusing in the extraction region of the AVF cyclotron and for reducing a beam loss at the vacuum chamber in the extraction region. An asymmetric dee voltage distribution at an acceleration gap is being analyzed for improvement of a flat-top acceleration system of the AVF cyclotron.
