PIP-II Injector Experiment - PXIE
PXIE is the integrated systems test for the PIP-II frontend. It is expected to accelerate a 2-mA CW beam up to 30 MeV. The White Paper for its proposal can be found here. The block-diagram of the machine is presented below. The major goal of the project is a validation of the PIP-II concept and elimination of technical risks. It is expected to be constructed in the period of 2014-2019.
Validate critical technologies required to support the PIP-II Reference Design concept.
· Provide a platform for demonstrating operations of PIP-II front end components at full design parameters
· Integrated systems test goals:
o 1 mA average current with 80% bunch-by-bunch chopping of beam delivered from the RFQ
o Efficient acceleration with minimal emittance dilution through at least 15 MeV
