Title: Recent Advances in RF Pulse Compressor Systems at SLAC

Abstract

Here, we will review the design of the dual-mode X-band rf system proposed for the Next Linear Collider (NLC). Recent experimental data are presented. The system is to produce 400 ns pulses with power levels up to 600 MW. A proof-of-principle experiment is being constructed at SLAC. Four 50 MW klystrons will power a fully dual-moded resonance delay line pulse compression system. Both the transfer line and the delay lines are dual-moded. The modes carried by the transfer line are controlled by the rf phases of the different klystrons. The modes in the delay lines are controlled by a set of mode converters at the input and the end of each delay line. By manipulating the modes in the transfer line, one can achieve either no pulse compression or a pulse compression ratio of 4. The total output power will be 200 MW for 1.6 microseconds or 600 MW for 400 nanoseconds.
