# HRRL Positron Rotating W Target

The first version of a positron converter target will be designed to distribute the heat load by rotating the tungsten target.

Calculate for 1 mm and 2 mm thick Tungsten

Look for Tungsten disks to attach to brushless motor and fit into beam pipe

# Properties of Tungsten

• Melting Point = 3695 K.
• Heat Capacity =

• Heat loss due to radiation: ( \sigma T^4)

# Tungsten Temperature as a function of heat load

• IAC beamline pressure = Torr
• The Tungsten heats up when an MeV energy electron impinges its surface. The imperfect vacuum inside the beam pipe does allow some radiative cooling.

## 1.Calculating number of particles per second

We have electron beam of:

Frequency: f=1000Hz

Peak current: I=10~mAmp=0.01 Amp

Pulse width: seconds

So, how many electrons we have in each second?

By Q=It, we have




Where N is the total electron numbers hits target per second, e is electron charge and f, I and ∆t are given above. Number of particle per second is:




## 2.Calculating Energy deposited per second

If we find the energy deposited by each electron and multiply to the total number of electrons in each second, we will find the total energy per second deposited in radiator.

To find energy deposited by each electron, we need to use formula




Where is is energy deposited by one electron, is mean energy loss (also stopping power) by collision of electron and is thickness of the radiator.

Actually, energy loss of a electron comes from two parts: 1) the emission of electromagnetic radiation arising from scattering in the electric field of a nucleus (bremsstrahlung); 2) Collisional energy loss when passing through matter. Bremsstrahlung will not contribute to the temperature, because it is radiation.

Stopping power can be found from nuclear data tables and thickness is 0.001 times of radiation length. From Particle Data group we got radiation length and average total stopping powers around 15MeV for electrons in these materials from National Institute of Standards and Technology: Tungsten Stopping Power.

Note:These data is from Particle Data group,Link: [1].

In above table,we took the total numbers of electrons per second and multiply it to Energy deposited by one electron,get total energy deposited per second (which is power).




## 3.Calculating equilibrium temperature using Stefan–Boltzmann law

If we assume that there is no energy conduction and total energy is just radiated from two surfaces of the radiators which are as big as beam spot,in our case beam spot is 2mm in diameter. According to Stefan–Boltzmann law, this total power radiated will be




Where T is radiating temperature P is the radiating power, A is surface area that beam incident and σ is Stefan–Boltzmann constant or Stefan's constant. To reach equilibrium temperature, Power deposited in and power radiated should be. So




so
