Simulation of the SARAF RFQ 1.5 MeV/Nucleon Proton/Deuteron Accelerator

The SARAF radio-frequency quadrupole (RFQ) is a four rod RFQ, operating at a frequency of 176 MHz, designed to bunch and accelerate a 4 mA deuteron/proton beam from 20 keV/nucleon DC up to 1.5 MeV/nucleon CW. The RFQ was simulated using CST MICROWAVE STUDIO®, including the rods modulation and the coupler. The simulated RFQ fields and surface current on the plunger, bottom rods, coupler port and end flange pattern are in good agreement with the measurements.
