Title: An Advanced Simulation Toolkit for Photon Band Gap Accelerators

Abstract

Photon band gap (PBG) structures have been investigated for accelerator and microwave tube applications over the past decade, and these investigations have concentrated on two distinct concepts. In one approach, a traditional accelerator slow-wave structure is created with a sequence of cavities of a new type that each contains a specially designed lattice of rods that endow it with desirable properties. Another more recent application of the same concept is to use a photonic crystal to confine the synchronous mode at the boundary of a dielectric wall accelerator (DWA), but let other modes excited by the beam escape. A related concept is the photonic crystal accelerator.
