Abstract

To attain the highest accelerating gradient in the compact dielectric wall DWA accelerator, the accelerating voltage pulses should have the shortest possible duration by operating the DWA in the "virtual" traveling mode [1]. Those short accelerating voltage pulses have little or no flattop, which complicates beam transport in the DWA. In this paper, we present PIC simulations of a baseline transport case for a strawman proton therapy machine with timing sensitivity study and an alternative focusing scheme, which indicate that we can meet our design objective.
