  • The state-of-the-art tunable vuv sources are used to produce excited C/sub 2/H photofragments (C/sub 2/H*) via the photolysis of acetylene molecules. The quenching rate constants of the C/sub 2/H emission by a number of species are determined. The collision-free fluorescence lifetimes are measured at different excitation wavelengths. The excitation energy threshold for producing the observed emission is determined. In addition, a correlation between the excitation energy and the emission wavelength is observed. 27 refs., 6 figs., 2 tabs.
  • Vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) light radiation was used to produce electronically excited KrF excimers (in D-, B- and C-states) by the photolysis of KrF/sub 2/ and F/sub 2//Kr mixtures at various excitation wavelengths. The excited KrF photoproduct quantum yield was measured over the excitation wavelength range of 120 to 200 nm, and a quantum efficiency of 0.45 was estimated at the peak absorption wavelength of 159 nm for KrF/sub 2/. The collision-free fluorescence lifetime of the B-X transition near 248 nm was determined to be 9.9 /plus minus/ 0.6 ns when the KrF/sub 2/ was excited with the 159 nm light.more » Near gas kinetic rate constants were measured for the quenching of KrF B-X emission by KrF/sub 2/ and CO/sub 2/. Using the threshold energy needed for observing excited KrF photofragments, an upper bound for the bond dissociation energy of KrF/sub 2/ was determined to be 1.03 /plus minus/ 0.1 eV. 14 refs., 8 figs.« less
  • BNL is responsible for the design and construction of the US Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) accumulator ring. Titanium Nitride (TiN) coating on the stainless steel vacuum chamber of the SNS accumulator ring is needed to reduce the secondary electron yield (SEY) and the undesirable resonant multiplication of electrons. The total SEY of TiN coated stainless steel material has been measured after coating samples were exposed to air and after electron and ion bombardment. We report here about TiN coating system setup at BNL and SEY measurements results at CERN, SLAC and KEK. We also present some simulation results of SNSmore » accumulator ring electron-cloud effects using different SEY values.« less
  • Average field emission currents of up to 700 mA were produced by Carbon Nano Tube (CNT) cathodes in a 1.3 GHz RF gun at Fermilab High Brightness Electron Source Lab. (HBESL). The CNT cathodes were manufactured at Xintek and tested under DC conditions at RadiaBeam. The electron beam intensity as well as the other beam properties are directly related to the time-dependent electric field at the cathode and the geometry of the RF gun. This report focuses on simulations of the electron beam generated through field-emission and the results are compared with experimental measurements. These simulations were performed with themore » time-dependent Particle In Cell (PIC) code WARP.« less
  • Structured cathodes - cathodes with a segmented emission surface - are finding an increasing number of applications and can be combined with a variety of emission mechanisms, including photoemission and field emission. These cathodes have been used to enhance the quantum efficiency of metallic cathodes when operated as plasmonic cathodes, have produced high-current electron bunches though field emission from multiple tips, and can be used to form beams with transverse segmentations necessary for improving the performance of accelerator-based light sources. In this report we present recent progress towards the development of finite-difference time-domain particle-in-cell simulations using the emission process inmore » structured cathodes based on the WARP framework. The simulations give further insight on the localized source of the emitted electrons which could be used for additional high-fidelity start-to-end simulations of electron accelerators that employ this type of electron source.« less
