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.


Mission Goals:

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
