Matching the Laser Generated p- Bunch into a CH-DTL — •Ali Almomani, Martin Droba, and Ulrich Ratzinger — Institute for Applied Physics, Frankfurt University
The concept of laser acceleration of protons by Target Normal Sheath Acceleration TNSA from thin foils could be used to produce a high intensity proton beam.
This proton beam could be injected into a linac at energies of ten to several ten MeV. A CH- structure is suggested as the linac structure because of its high gradient.
The motivation for such a combination is to deliver single beam bunches with extremely high particle number- in order of 1010 protons per bunch.
Options and simulation tools for beam matching by a pulsed solenoid and the CH- structure using LASIN and LORASR codes are presented.
