FAST is a facility at Fermilab that consists of a photoinjector, two superconducting capture cavities, one superconducting ILC-style cryomodule, and a small ring for studying non-linear, integrable beam optics called IOTA. This paper discusses the layout for the optical transport system that provides optical radiation to an externally located streak camera for bunch length measurements, and THz radiation to a Martin-Puplett interferometer, also for bunch length measurements. It accepts…

Submicropulse electron-beam dynamics correlated with short-range wakefields in Tesla-type superconducting rf cavities

Direct observation of short-range wakefield effects was made for the first time using a synchroscan streak camera to obtain images at the submicropulse time scale.
