Polarized Protons in the TRIUMF KAON Factory

  • U. Wienands
Conference paper


The TRIUMF KAON Factory has the potential to deliver polarized beams at an intensity up to two orders of magnitude higher than available at other facilities. The provisions made for avoiding depolarization in the accelerators are discussed. The 3 GeV Booster lattice has by virtue of its lattice design only one intrinsic and five imperfection resonances; all are weak and produce little depolarization. For the 30 GeV Driver and also the Extender helical Siberian snakes are proposed, designed using 2 T room temperature dipole magnets. Care has been taken in order to ensure proper matching of the spin on the transfer between rings with and without snakes.
