Title: Start-to-end Transport Design and Multi-particle Tracking for the ILC Electron Source

Abstract

A train of 2-ns micro bunches of longitudinally polarized electrons are generated in a 120-kV DC-gun based injector in the ILC electron source; a bunching system with extremely high bunching efficiency to compress the micro-bunch down to 20 ps FWHM is designed. Complete optics to transport the electron bunch to the entrance of the 5-GeV damping ring injection line is developed. Start-to-end multi-particle tracking through the beamline is performed including the bunching system, pre-acceleration, chicane, 5-GeV superconducting booster linac, spin rotators and energy compressor. It shows that 94% of the electrons from the DC-gun are captured within the damping ring 6-D acceptance--A{sub x} + A{sub y} {le} 0.09 m and {Delta}E x {Delta}z {le} ({+-} 25 MeV) x ({+-} 3.46 cm)--at the entrance of the damping ring injection line. The field and alignment errors and orbit correction are analyzed.

  • Undulator-based positron source is adopted as the ILC baseline design. Complete optics to transport the positron beam having large angular divergence and large energy spread from an immersed thin Ti target to the entrance of the 5 GeV damping ring injection line is developed. Start-to-end multi-particle tracking through the beamline is performed including the optical matching device, capture system, transport system, superconducting booster linac, spin rotators, and energy compressor. It shows that 49.8% of the positrons from the target are captured within the damping ring 6-D acceptance--A{sub x} + A{sub y} {le} 0.09 m and {Delta}E x {Delta}z ({+-} 25more » MeV) x ({+-} 3.46cm)--at the entrance of the damping ring injection line. The field and alignment errors and orbit correction are analyzed.« less

  • The Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) is a fourth-generation light source demonstration project based on the self-amplified spontaneous emission (SASE) free-electron laser (FEL) concept. It will combine a new photoinjector, the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) linac, with two stages of bunch compression and a long undulator to create intense radiation pulses at 1.5 A. Successful operation of the LCLS will require consistent delivery of a high-brightness electron beam to the undulator, in the face of effects such as wakefields and coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR). Because of the sensitivity to beam quality and subtle effects, it is necessary to performmore » integrated tracking from the cathode through the undulator. We report on the combined use of PARMELA, elegant, and GENESIS to perform these simulations, and in particular the simulation of pulse-to-pulse variation in FEL performance due to rf- and laser-related variation in the electron beam.« less
  • The ILC positron beam generated from a thin Ti target has a wide energy spread and large transverse divergence. With the collection optics immediately downstream of the target and pre-acceleration to 125 MeV, the collected positron beam still has a long tail of positrons with low energies and large transverse divergence, which will be lost in the rest of the ILC positron source beamline. A collimation system is proposed and optimized for the case of a shielded target with quarter-wave transformation collection optics so that the power loss in the magnets and RF structures is effectively controlled within the acceptablemore » level and in the damping ring (DR) within 640 W, assuming 3x10{sup 10} of the captured positrons per bunch in the DR. In this case, the capture efficiency and DR injection efficiency are 13% and 99.8%, respectively. The lower capture efficiency is expected to result in higher injection efficiency and therefore, a lower power loss in the DR. The capture efficiency for the cases of a shielded target with flux concentrator and 5-T immersed target with flux concentrator is 20% and 30%, respectively, with the collimation system.« less
  • In this note, it is briefly discussed the accelerator design and start-to-end 3D macro particles simulation (using ELEGANT and GENESIS) of an X-band RF driven hard X-ray FEL with LCLS injector. A preliminary design and LiTrack 1D simulation studies were presented before in an older publication [1]. In numerical simulations this X-band RF driven hard X-ray FEL achieves/exceeds LCLS-like performance in a much shorter overall length of 350 m, compared with 1200 m in the LCLS case. One key feature of this design is that it may achieve a higher final beam current of 5 kA plus a uniform energymore » profile, mainly due to the employment of stronger longitudinal wake fields in the last X-band RF linac [2].« less
