CABOTO, a high-gradient linac for hadrontherapy
CABOTO (CArbon BOoster for Therapy in Oncology), a compact, efficient high-frequency linac that can accelerate C6+ ions and H2 molecules from 150–410 MeV/u in ∼24 m.
High-gradient testing of an S -band, normal-conducting low phase velocity accelerating structure
A novel high-gradient accelerating structure with low phase velocity, v=c 1⁄4 0.38, has been designed, manufactured and high-power tested. The structure was designed and built using the methodology
TULIP all-linac : a high gradient linac for proton therapy
Proposed for the first time almost 30 years ago, the research on radio frequency linacs for hadron therapy experienced a sparkling interest in the last decade. The different projects found a common
Application of Novel Accelerator Research for Particle Therapy
This thesis seeks to review the latest trends in hadron therapy devices, and evaluate the potential of novel, researched accelerator concepts for future application. Although the clinical benefits of
Avoiding vacuum arcs in high gradient normal conducting RF structures
In order to build the Compact LInear Collider (CLIC), accelerating structures reaching extremely high accelerating gradients are needed. Such structures have been built and tested using


A survey of hadron therapy accelerator technologies
Hadron therapy has entered a new age [1]. The number of facilities grows steadily, and "consumer" interest is high. Some groups are working on new accelerator technology, while others optimize
High Frequency Linacs for Hadrontherapy
The use of radiofrequency linacs for hadrontherapy was proposed about 20 years ago, but only recently has it been understood that the high repetition rate together with the possibility of very rapid
Over the last few years it has become apparent that RF breakdown and the damage that it can cause are critical issues for normal-conducting high-energy linear colliders. Substantial efforts to
Introduction to Accelerator Physics
The development of charged particle accelerators and it’s underlying principles has its basis on the theoretical and experimental progress in fundamental physical phenomena. While active particle
Cyclotron Designs for Ion Beam Therapy with Cyclinacs
This thesis presents new superconducting compact (as opposed to separated-sector ) cyclotron designs for injection in CABOTO, a linac developed by the TERA Foundation delivering C6+/H2+ beams up to
Design considerations for medical proton accelerators
Design of the clinical accelerator requires a highly orchestrated design effort, involving the entire facility, and rapid and precise flexibility in changing beam parameters is essential for satisfying clinical needs.
Geometric dependence of radio-frequency breakdown in normal conducting accelerating structures
We present the experimental results of a systematic study of rf breakdown phenomenon in high vacuum accelerator structures. In this study, the surface processing, geometry, and materials of the
Particle accelerator physics
This book by Helmut Wiedemann is a well-established, classic text, providing an in-depth and comprehensive introduction to the field of high-energy particle acceleration and beam dynamics. The
External Q Studies for APT SC-Cavity Couplers
Coupling coefficients for the APT superconducting cavity couplers have been predicted using an improvement of the method previously developed for the French Trispal project [1]. We here present the
