Title: R&D of Accelerator Structures at SLAC

Abstract

The research activities for accelerator structures at SLAC are reviewed including the achievement via the main linac design for the Next Linear Collider (NLC), the program adjustment after the decision of the International Linear Collider (ILC) to be based on superconducting technology, and the work progress for the ILC, photon science at SLAC and basic accelerator structure studies.

  • We report on a precise study of the x and Q{sub 2} dependence of the proton, deuteron and neutron structure functions. In particular R = {sigma}{sub L}/{sigma}{sub T}, F{sub 2{sub p}}, F{sub 2{sub d}}, and the ratio F{sub 2{sub d}}/F{sub 2{sub p}} were extracted in a combined analysis of SLAC deep inelastic electron scattering experiments. Data from eight experiments were radiatively corrected with a new improved radiative correction formalism, and all experiments were normalized to the precise data of SLAC E140, thus yielding a single coherent data set. We find that R{sub p} = R{sub d} as expected from QCD.more » The results for R are somewhat larger than the prediction of QCD with target mass effects, thus indicating the existence of additional dynamic higher twist effects. Using both SLAC and CERN data, we obtained a parametrization of R in the range 0.5< Q{sup 2} <200 GeV/c{sup 2} and 0.1 < x < 0.86. This fit in conjunction with the normalized hydrogen and deuterium cross sections was used to extract precise values of F{sub 2}. These data provide a constraint at low Q{sup 2} for high Q{sup 2} muon and neutrino experiments. A study of the Q{sup 2} dependence of the ratio of deuteron and proton structure functions shows a slope which is consistent with QCD and explains the difference in this ratio between SLAC and CERN experiments. 7 figs.« less
  • We present the current and planned beam physics research program and accelerator education program at Advanced Superconducting Test Accelerator (ASTA) at Fermilab.
  • This paper describes the current SLAC R&D program to develop room temperature accelerator structures for the Next Linear Collider (NLC). The structures are designed to operate at 11.4 GHz at an accelerating gradient in the range of 50 to 100 MV/m. In the past year a 26 cm constant-impedance traveling-wave section, a 75 cm constant-impedance traveling-wave section, and a 1.8 m traveling-wave section with detuned deflecting modes have been high-power tested. The paper presents a brief description of the RF test setup, the design and manufacturing details of the structures, and a discussion of test results including field emission, RFmore » processing, dark current spectrum and RF breakdown.« less
  • At CERN, KEK, Novosibirsk and SLAC, serious thought is being given to the design of linear colliders in the 0.5--2.0 TeV center-of-mass energy range. This paper reviews current progress at SLAC toward the design of such a collider. No attempt is made here to summarize ongoing work at the other laboratories. However, research on linear colliders is clearly an international effort, and success at SLAC will be greatly expedited by communication and cooperation with other laboratories in the US and abroad. In addition to major programs at the laboratories mentioned above, contributions relevant to linear collider design are being mademore » at DESY, LAL (Orsay), LBL, LLNL and elsewhere. 49 refs., 6 tabs.« less
  • This paper describes recent progress on the development of high polarization photocathodes for polarized electron sources. A strained InGaAs cathode has achieved a maximum electron-spin polarization of 71% and has demonstrated the strain enhancement of polarization for the first time. Strained GaAs cathodes have yielded polarizations as high as 90% with much higher quantum efficiency.
