FLASH radiation therapy calls for the delivery of fast bursted spills of particles with dose delivery times of the order of milliseconds. The requirements overlap with fundamental physics experimental requests that are being studied at CERN, albeit at very different energy scales. In this contribution, a scheme for extracting millisecond bursts from synchrotrons is explored by controlling a third-integer resonant and chromatic extraction with RF phase displacement acceleration. The scheme would…

Demonstration of slow extraction loss reduction with the application of octupoles at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron

The powering of octupoles during third-integer resonant slow extraction has been studied and recently tested with the beam at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) in order to increase the

Septum shadowing by means of a bent crystal to reduce slow extraction beam loss

The flux of high-energy protons slow-extracted from the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) is limited by the induced radioactivity caused by the beam loss intrinsic to the extraction process.
