Project Info

An Emittance Measurement System for Ion Beam Adjustment before Injection into an RFQ linac

  • Client: National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory / Michigan State University
  • Date of launch: Jul, 2011
  • Place: East Lansing, USA


A Pepperpot Emittance Meter was purchased by Michigan State University / NSCL for investigating the phase space distribution of ion beams before injection in to an RFQ structure. With the help of the pepperpot measurements the beam parameters can be adjusted for optimal conformity with the acceptance of the linear accelerator.
