Abstract

The ProTec cyclinac proposes the use of a 24 MeV high-current cyclotron to inject protons into a normal-conducting linac pulsed at up to 1 kHz to give energies up to 150 MeV. As well as producing radioisotopes such as 99mTc, the cyclinac also provides proton beams at higher energy with clinically-relevant beam properties. In this paper we present a comparison of linac designs in which S-band structures are used at lower energies prior to injection into a high-gradient X-band structure; issues such as beam capture and transmission are evaluated.
