ELYTT design and manufacturing quadrupoles for IFMIF project to CIEMAT

Elytt Energy has awarded a contract to CIEMAT for design and manufacturing 8 Quadrupole magnets for the HEBT (High Energy Beam Transport) inside LIPAc (Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator) in the framework of IFMIF project (International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility).

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.
