Due to the combination of fixed magnetic field operation with strong focusing, non-scaling FFAGs have a significant potential for future particle accelerator applications. However, this technology has a number of unique features, which must be fully studied before this potential can be realised. To do this, a proof-of-principle non-scaling FFAG, called EMMA Electron Model for Many Applications has been constructed at the STFC Daresbury Laboratory in the UK. It has been designed by an international collaboration of accelerator scientists and engineers. It will demonstrate the principle of non-scaling FFAGs and be used to study the features of this type of accelerator in detail.
