  In the framework of LANSCE Accelerator Modernization Project preliminary research, during evaluation of critical technology elements it was found that the proposed RFQ design had not yet been demonstrated experimentally worldwide. Such an RFQ should combine the ability of traditional light ion RFQs (i.e., [1]) and the flexibility of acceleration of pre-bunched beams, like RFQs for heavy ions [2]. The proposed RFQ should be able to accelerate H+ and H beams with 35-mA beam current from 100 keV to 3 MeV and at the same time preserve the prescribed macro-bunch beam time structure required by experiments. New algorithms for RFQ geometry generation have been proposed, and optimization algorithms are being developed at LANL. LAMP demonstration plans also include development of a new set of electrodes for the existing RFQ at our Test Stand that will allow us to demonstrate the critical technology ahead of time in a laboratory experimental setup with low duty factor and low energy.
