We are working on a roadmap towards the goal of a 2 MW upgrade of the Main Injector. Each step will help improve the MI performance in its present (Run 2) and near future (NuMI) operations. The 2 MW goal will be reached in the Proton Driver era. These steps include, but are not limited to:

  • large aperture quadrupoles (WQB)
  • fast ramp
  • RF upgrade to two power amplifiers per cavity
  • new RF system
  • collimators
  • gamma-t jump system
  • large aperture kickers
  • replacement of the reused Main Ring quads
  • improved beam abort
  • cooling upgrade
