A Coherent Compton Backscattering High Gain FEL using an X-Band Microwave Undulator( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High power microwave sources at X-Band, delivering 400 to 500 of megawatts for about 400 ns, have been recently developed. These sources can power a microwave undulator with short period and large gap, and can be used in short wavelength FELs reaching the nm region at a beam energy of about 1 GeV. We present here an experiment designed to demonstrate that microwave undulators have the field quality needed for high gain FELs
Test Bed for Superconducting Materials( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superconducting rf cavities are increasingly used in accelerators. Gradient is a parameter of particular importance for the ILC. Much progress in gradient has been made over the past decade, overcoming problems of multipacting, field emission, and breakdown triggered by surface impurities. However, the quenching limit of the surface magnetic field for niobium remains a hard limitation on cavity fields sustainable with this technology. Further exploration of materials and preparation may offer a path to surpassing the current limit. For this purpose, we have designed a resonant test cavity. One wall of the cavity is formed by a flat sample of superconducting material; the rest of the cavity is copper or niobium. The H field on the sample wall is 75% higher than on any other surface. Multipacting is avoided by use of a mode with no surface electric field. The cavity will be resonated through a coupling iris with high-power rf at superconducting temperature until the sample wall quenches, as detected by a change in the quality factor. This experiment will allow us to measure critical magnetic fields up to well above that of niobium with minimal cost and effort
Active Radio Frequency Pulse Compression Using Switched Resonant Delay Lines( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a study and design methodology for enhancing the efficiency of the SLED II rf pulse-compression system [1]. This system employs resonant delay lines as a means of storing rf energy. By making the external quality factor of these lines vary as a function of time, the intrinsic efficiency of the system can reach 100%. However, we demonstrate a considerable increase in efficiency even if the change of the quality factor is limited to a single event in time. During this event, the quality factor of the lines changes from one value to another. The difference between these two values is minimized to simplify the realization of the quality factor switch. We present the system optimum parameters for this case. We also show the extension of this system to two events in time, during which the quality factor of the line changes between three predetermined states. The effects of the losses due to the delay lines and the switch used to change the quality factor are also studied
High Gradient Performance of NLC/GLC X-band Accelerating Structures( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past five years, there has been a concerted program at SLAC and KEK to develop accelerator structures that meet the high gradient (65 MV/m) performance requirements for the Next Linear Collider (NLC) and Global Linear Collider (GLC) initiatives. The design that resulted is a 60-cm-long, traveling-wave structure with low group velocity and 150 degree per cell phase advance. It has an average iris size that produces an acceptable short-range wakefield, and dipole mode damping and detuning that adequately suppresses the long-range wakefield. More than eight such structures have operated at a 60 Hz repetition rate over 1000 hours at 65 MV/m with 400 ns long pulses, and have reached breakdown rate levels below the limit for the linear collider. Moreover, the structures are robust in that the rates continue to decrease over time, and if the structures are briefly exposed to air, the rates recover to their low levels within a few days. This paper presents a summary of the results from this program, which effectively ended last August with the selection of ''cold'' technology for an International Linear Collider (ILC)
Development of Ultra-Fast Silicon Switches for Active X-Band High Power RF Compression Systems( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present the recent results of our research on the high power ultra-fast silicon RF switches. This switch is composed of a group of PIN diodes on a high purity silicon wafer. The wafer is inserted into a cylindrical waveguide under TE{sub 01} mode, performing switching by injecting carriers into the bulk silicon. Our current design uses a CMOS compatible process and the device was fabricated at SNF (Stanford Nanofabrication Facility). 300 ns switching time has been observed, while the switching speed can be improved further with 3-D device structure and faster driving circuit. Power handling capacity of the switch is at the level of 10 MW. The switch was designed for active X-band RF pulse compression systems--especially for NLC, but it is also possible to be modified for other applications and other frequencies
Tests on MgB2 for Application to SRF Cavities( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Magnesium diboride (MgB{sub 2}) has a transition temperature (T{sub c}) of {approx} 40 K, i.e., about 4 times higher than niobium (Nb). Studies in the last 3 years have shown that it could have about one order of magnitude less RF surface resistance (R{sub s}) than Nb at 4 K and seems to have much less power dependence than high-T{sub c} materials such as YBCO. However, it was also found that it will depend on the way you deposit the film. The result from on-axis pulsed laser deposition (PLD) showed rapid increase in R{sub s} with higher surface magnetic fields compared to the film deposited with reactive evaporation method
