Title: Linear collider approach to a B anti B factory

Abstract

In this paper we consider the basic design expression and principal design constraints for a linear collider suitable for a B anti-B factory: Energy approx. =10 GeV, luminosity 10/sup 33/-10/sup 34/ cm/sup -2/s/sup -1/, energy resolution approx. =10/sup -2/. The design of room temperature linear colliders for a B factory is discussed. In such colliders, the rf energy stored in the linac structure is thrown away after each linac pulse. Linear colliders using superconducting rf cavities are considered. Some brief conclusions are presented.

  • Many high energy physicists in Japan will be participating in Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) experiments. KEK is planning to build a B factory. Japan Linear Collider (JLC) --- an e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} linear collider with {radical}s = (.5 {approximately} 1.5) TeV --- is being considered as the future project at KEK. I have been asked to discuss the physics compatibilities and the relative merits of these three projects. From a physics point of view, nobody can argue against building an accelerator. Looking back at the past 40 years, we note that physics discoveries from new accelerators often far exceeded ourmore » original expectations. In order to make accelerators cost effective, their parameters must be tuned so that there is guaranteed physics. By guaranteed physics, I mean that a machine must be capable of observing new phenomena predicted by the most conventional standard model. Discoveries beyond such bottom line expectations should be treated as bonuses and should not be treated as major motivations for building a machine. I will first discuss the bottom line physics at SSC and at a B factory. I will then go on to discuss the compatibility of the two physics. Finally, I will discuss the physics at JLC, and its relationship with that at SSC and at a B factory.« less
  • We outline the physics goals of a B-barB factory to produce greater than 10/sup 8/ B/sup 0//sub d/, B/sup +- / per year. Emphasis is placed on the search for large CP violating effects in rare B decays. An e/sup +/e/sup -/ linear collider is proposed for the B-barB factory and a preliminary estimate of the parameters of the machine that might reach L = 10/sup 34/ cm/sup -2/ sec/sup -1/ is given.
  • We examine the possibility of using an IFEL as an accelerator in a linear collider B Factory. An IFEL is able to utilize a sizable fraction of the energy of the laser pulse used to accelerate the beams. It is also able to meet the stringent requirements imposed on the energy spread and luminosity at the interaction point. Two separate examples are considered, differing in the way the laser pulse energy is coupled to the electron beam. The first maximizes the slippage between the beam bunch and the radiation, in order to decrease the peak laser power. In the secondmore » example the slippage is minimized. This results in uniform beam loading and may in principle be run at higher efficiency and lower average power. We also address the laser required to drive this accelerator. The power and frequency requirements suggest the use of a FEL drive laser. Our design for this system includes the use of superconducting cavities to accelerate the drive beam, which is then propagated through an initially constant period undulator that is tapered after saturation.« less
