Limits to AGOR

Electromagnetic equipment

  • The magnetic field can be chosen in the range 1.75 < B < 4.05 T
  • The accelerating frequency f ranges from 24 to 62 MHz, harmonic modes are h = 2, 3, 4.
  • The maximum dee voltage is 100 kV.
  • Ion source specifications indicate a maximum injection voltage of 35 kV

Translation into (Z / A) and (T / A)

  • At low Z / A and high T / A, the operating diagramme is bounded by the bending limit Kb = 600 MeV
  • Above Z / A = 220 / 600,  the focusing limit Kf = 200 MeV becomes more restricting than the bending limit at high T / A.
  • At high Z / A, the low T / A side is bounded by the magnetic field at which the strong nr + 2 nz = 3 resonance is occuring. In AGOR, this occurs at around 1.7 tesla.
  • At low Z / A, the low T / A side is bounded by the low frequency limit of the RF system
