EMMA, the worlds first non-scaling fixed field alternating gradient (ns-FFAG) accelerator, is to beconstructed at STFC Daresbury Laboratory as part of the BASROC consortium’s CONFORM project. EMMA, a 10 to 20 MeV electron ring, will demonstrate the principle of ns-FFAGs and be used to study and understand the features of this novel type of acceleration. The knowledge gained will inform the design of PAMELA, a machine for medical research, and a range of potential applications being studied. EMMA is being designed by an international collaboration and funded by the UK ‘Basic Technology’ initiative. The current status of this project is presented including the technical description of the key hardware implemented during the design phase of the project.
