ELYTT design and manufacturing quadrupoles for IFMIF project to CIEMAT
The mission of IFMIF (International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility) is to provide an accelerator-based D-Li neutron source to produce high energy neutrons (40 MeV) at sufficient intensity (250 mA) and irradiation volume to test samples of candidate materials to a full lifetime of anticipated use in fusion energy reactors. The LIPAc accelerator is a prototype of the IFMIF accelerators that will be installed in Rokkasho (Japan).
Elytt Energy will design and manufacturing the 8 quadrupole magnets that go inside the HEBT. The HEBT guides the particles of the ion beam from SRF module to the beam dump.
The 8 quadrupole magnets will be grouped in two triplets and one doublet. The magnets take care of keep focused the beam along the HEBT line.
