Feasibility study of combined function magnets for a S-FFAG for medical applications

Abstract:

Non-scaling fixed field alternating gradient (NS-FFAG) accelerators combine a number of advantages, such as rapid particle acceleration and large acceptance. These features make NS-FFAGs particularly interesting for medical applications. NS-FFAGs could be used for cancer therapy, which may lead to significant size and cost reductions in comparison to other accelerator types. Cancer therapy with protons or carbon ions is advantageous in comparison to conventional radiation treatment amongst ot...
