Title: Cavity loss factors of non-relativistic beams for Project X

Abstract

Cavity loss factor calculation is an important part of the total cryolosses estimation for the super conductive (SC) accelerating structures. There are two approaches how to calculate cavity loss factors, the integration of a wake potential over the bunch profile and the addition of loss factors for individual cavity modes. We applied both methods in order to get reliable results for non-relativistic beam. The time domain CST solver was used for a wake potential calculation and the frequency domain HFSS code was used for the cavity eigenmodes spectrum findings. Finally we present the results of cavity loss factors simulations for a non-relativistic part of the ProjectX and analyze it for various beam parameters.

  • Cavity loss factors can be easily computed for ultrarelativistic beams using time-domain codes like MAFIA or ABCI. However, for non-ultrarelativistic beams the problem is more complicated because of difficulties with its numerical formulation in the time domain. The authors calculate the loss factors of a non-relativistic bunch and compare results with the relativistic case.
  • Relativistic electron beams are being generated with emittances low enough that diffraction radiation can be used for beam diagnostics. Techniques based on diffraction radiation can be used to measure the beam transverse momentum distribution and to measure the transverse spatial distribution. The radiation is intense and can be in the visible spectral region where optical diagnostic techniques can be used to maximum advantage. 4 refs. 3 figs.
  • The performance of an FEL depends critically on the characteristics of the electron beam used to drive it. In the past it has been very difficult to measure the details of the transverse and longitudinal phase-space distributions of high-energy electron beams with the precision required to predict FEL performance. Furthermore, the available diagnostics were generally pertubative, and could not be used simultaneously with lasing. We investigate the potential use of a short undulator insertion device for non-destructive diagnosis of relativistic electron beams. Incoherent visible to near-infrared synchrotron radiation from a single magnet in the diagnostic undulator will be used tomore » obtain information on beam position and transverse phase-space. Coherent off-axis undulator radiation in the millimeter to sub-millimeter range will be used to measure longitudinal phase-space characteristics of the beam. These two types of radiation can be analyzed simultaneously, while the FEL is lasing; thus giving a complete picture of relevant electron beam characteristics. In this paper we analyze the theoretical and practical design issues associated with such a diagnostic undulator.« less
  • Soft X-ray can be generated by low relativistic electron beams traversing through a medium with short spatial period. The amount of radiation generated is reduced owing to photon absorption and electron scattering. We investigate the influence of photon absorption and electron scattering on the amount of radiation, the critical electron energy and the total length of the superlattice. The results indicate that a heavy medium may be a better radiator for our system.
  • The technique of guiding a relativistic electron beam by utilizing an ultraviolet-laser-ionized channel in low-pressure benzene has been demonstrated on an rf linear accelerator. Detailed measurements of the temporal behavior of the beam as it propagated a distance of 13.5 m were made as a function of laser channel parameters and accelerator conditions. Concepts and applications of this laser-guiding technique are presented as they relate to the possible improvement and simplification of the generation, transport, and focusing of relativistic electron beams used to create bremsstrahlung radiation for flash x-radiography.
