Abstract

The European Spallation Source (ESS) planned for con- struction in Lund, Sweden, will be the worlds most intense source of pulsed neutrons. The neutrons will be generated by the collision of a 2.5 GeV proton beam with a heavy- metal target. The superconducting section of the proton linac is split into three different types of cavities, and a question for the lattice designers is at which points in the beamline these splits should occur. This note studies vari- ous proposed designs for the ESS lattice from the point of view of the effect on the beam dynamics of the parasitic cavity modes lying close in frequency to the fundamental accelerating mode. Each linac design is characterised by the initial kinetic energy of the beam, as well as by the ve- locity of the beam at each of the points at which the cavity style changes. The scale of the phase-space disruption of the proton pulse is discussed, and some general conclusions for lattice designers are stated.
