Title: Performance of the 2 MeV microwave gun for the SSRL 150 MeV linac

Abstract

As described in a previous article, the preinjector linac for SSRL's 3 GeV synchrotron is fed by a 2 MeV, 1.5 A, low-emittance microwave gun, consisting of a thermionic cathode mounted in the first cell of a 1-1/2-cell S-band cavity. In this article, we report on the successful operation of the low-emittance gun, the longitudinally-bunching alpha-magnet, and the three-microbunch FET-pulsed beam-chopper. Simulations predict a normalized rms emittance at the gun exit of less than 10 {pi}{center dot}m{sub e}c{center dot}{mu}m; chromatic effects in transport optics increase this to approximately 30 {pi}{center dot}m{sub e}c{center dot}{mu}m. The gun was specifically designed to have a longitudinal phase-space suited to magnetic compression, as a result of which we predict that peak currents in excess of 300 A in a 1 ps bunch are feasible with the existing alpha-magnet. Results of simulations and experiments will be presented and compared. 13 refs., 9 figs.
