IEEE-NPSS Particle Accelerator Science and Technology (PAST) Award 2009 Con’t
Dr. Seiya has been in charged of the Fermilab Main Injector (MI) slip stacking project since 2002. Slip stacking became operational in the MI in December 2004. This was the first time it had been implemented in any accelerator. Slip stacking increased the beam intensity to anti- proton production target by 70%, which was a major factor in the achievement of the Run II luminosity goal. The scheme was extended to multi-batch stacking for the NuMI neutrino experiment, helping to increase total MI beam power by 40% to 400 kW. She plans to work on implementing the slip stacking process in the Fermilab Recycler, used as an injector for the MI, in order to further increase the total MI beam power to 700 kW for the Nova operation.
Dr. Seiya received the 2009 IEEE/NPSS Particle Accelerator Sci- ence and Technology Award “For developing and successfully implementing slip stacking of proton batches injected into the Fer- milab Main Injector resulting in a significant increase beam inten- sity.”
