The ISAC-II heavy ion linear accelerator has been in operation at TRIUMF since 2006. The high beta section of the accelerator, consisting of twenty cavities with optimum β0=0.11, is currently under production and is scheduled for completion in 2009. The cavities are superconducting bulk Niobium two-gap quarter-wave resonators with a frequency of 141 MHz, providing, as a design goal, a voltage gain of Veff=1.08 MV at 7 W power dissipation. Production of the cavities is with a Canadian company… CONTINUE READING
