Beam Collimation System for a 16 GeV Proton Driver


It is shown that with the appropriate lattice and collimation design,
one can control beam loss in the 16~GeV Fermilab Proton Driver.
Based on detailed Monte-Carlo simulations, a 3-stage collimation system
is proposed which consists of primary, secondary and supplementary
collimators located in a special 60~m long injection section along with
a painting system. It allows localization of more than 99\% of beam loss
to this section with only a 0.3~W/m (on average) beam loss rate in the rest
of the machine. As a result, beam loss and induced radiation effects
in lattice elements can be reduced to levels which are defined as acceptable.
