RadiaBeam is constructing the non-linear insert for the IOTA Ring at FNAL. The construction of this insert is in progress and delivery is expected for September 2016. We report here on said progress.


The Integrable Optics Test Accelerator (IOTA) is designed to test the integrable optics concept in which stable motion is achieved in a manifestly non-linear lattice. If successful, this concept can be used to stabilize particle motion at the intensity frontier. While there are a great many ways to implement the required non-linear magnetic fields to create a lattice with two invariants of the motion, RadiaBeam is leading the effort to develop the elliptical magnetic inserts. This project is scheduled for completion in September 2016. Over the past year we have performed a prototyping test of the complex vacuum system, commissioned a vibrating wire system for location of the magnetic axis of the magnet segments and have started manufacture of the final prototype device to be installed at the IOTA ring. We report here on the progress of the manufacture of the non-linear insert.
