Title: Wakefields of Sub-Picosecond Electron Bunches

Abstract

We discuss wakefields excited by short bunches in accelerators. In particular, we review some of what has been learned in recent years concerning diffraction wakes, roughness impedance, coherent synchrotron radiation wakes, and the resistive wall wake, focusing on analytical solutions where possible. As examples, we apply formulas for these wakes to various parts of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) project. The longitudinal accelerator structure wake of the SLAC linac is an important ingredient in the LCLS bunch compression process. Of the wakes in the undulator region, the dominant one is the resistive wall wake of the beam pipe.

  • The traditional method of measuring extremely short electron beams using streak cameras begins to become problematic and expensive at bunch lengths at a picosecond and below. In this paper a few alternatives, based on the differential measurement of the Fourier spectrum of the longitudinal charge distribution of a bunch are suggested and evaluated.

  • A facility to generate high-intensity, ultra-short pulses of broad-band far-infrared radiation has been assembled and tested at Stanford. The device uses sub-picosecond relativistic electron bunches to generate coherent radiation through transition or synchrotron radiation in the far-infrared (FIR) regime between millimeter waves and wavelengths of about 100 {mu}m and less. Experimental results show a peak radiation power of greater than 0.33 MW within a micro-bunch and an average FIR radiation power of 4 mW. The average bunch length of 2856 micro-bunches within a 1 {mu}sec macro-pulse is estimated to be about 480 sec. Simulations experimental setup and results will bemore » discussed.« less
  • We plan to resonantly excite plasma wakefields using a train of electron bunches separated by an-integer number of plasma wavelengths. The multiple electron bunches are generated by a photocathode based RF gun by splitting the laser beam into temporally separated pulses. The amplitude of the wakefields generated by the sequence of bunches is expected to be higher than that generated if all charge had been in only one bunch, because this single bunch would be considerably longer than the individual sub-bunches due to space charge effects in our gun.
