ALICE (accelerator)


ALICE (accelerator)

Accelerators and Lasers In Combined Experiments (ALICE), or Energy Recovery Linac Prototype (ERLP) is a project to build a 35MeV energy recovery linac at Daresbury Laboratory. The project was originally conceived as a test bed for 4GLS, and consists of:

*A 350keV photoinjector laser.
*An 8.35MeV superconducting RF booster linac.
*A 35MeV superconducting RF main linac in which energy is recovered from used electron bunches and given to new bunches.
*An infrared free electron laser (FEL), using a permanent magnet undulator on permanent loan from Jefferson Laboratory.
*An ERL transport system that transports electron bunches through the FEL and back to the linac with the correct RF phase to decelerate them and thereby to recover energy from them.

Plans for extension

There are plans to extend the ALICE project by adding a 19-cavity accelerating Non-Scaling FFAG ring, known as the EMMA project. Planing for the EMMA machine is underway and construction is due to begin in September 2009.
