Analysis of Skew Quadrupole Compensation in RF-Photoinjectors

  title={Analysis of Skew Quadrupole Compensation in RF-Photoinjectors},
  author={Paul E. Denham and Frederick Cropp and Pietro Musumeci},
  journal={arXiv: Accelerator Physics},
In this paper, we present a detailed analysis of the effects of quadrupole components in radiofrequency (RF) photoinjectors, which could occur either in the RF cavity or in the gun solenoid, and their compensation using a skew quadrupole corrector. The analysis is generalized to the case in which the correction cannot be applied at the same location as the quadrupole. A practical guide to setting the corrector to eliminate correlation in the x-y space is discussed. Particle tracking simulations…

Four-dimensional emittance measurements of ultrafast electron diffraction optics corrected up to sextupole order

Ultrafast electron diffraction (UED) is a technique in which short-pulse electron beams can probe the femtosecond-scale evolution of atomic structure in matter driven far from equilibrium. As an

Lossless Monochromation for Electron Microscopy with Pulsed Photoemission Sources and Radio-Frequency Cavities

Resonant radiofrequency cavities enable exquisite time-energy control of electron beams when synchronized with laser driven photoemission. We present a lossless monochromator design that exploits



Experimental demonstration of the correction of coupled-transverse-dynamics aberration in an rf photoinjector

The production of electron bunches with low transverse emittance approaches the thermal emittance of the photocathode as various aberrations are corrected. Recently, the coupled transverse dynamics


The electron beam asymmetry observed at the Photo Injector Test Facility at DESY in Zeuthen (PITZ) was traced back to multipole kicks in the gun section, namely around the location of the coaxial

Exact cancellation of emittance growth due to coupled transverse dynamics in solenoids and rf couplers

Small, stray magnetic and RF fields in electron guns and injectors can perturb an electron beam and introduce correlations between the otherwise orthogonal transverse trajectories. These correlations

High gradient rf photoguns have been a key development to enable several applications of high quality electron beams. They allow the generation of beams with very high peak current and low transverse

Overestimation of thermal emittance in solenoid scans due to coupled transverse motion

The solenoid scan is a widely used method for the in-situ measurement of the thermal emittance in a photocathode gun. The popularity of this method is due to its simplicity and convenience since all

Review and demonstration of ultra-low-emittance photocathode measurements.

A simple and reliable apparatus for measuring ultra-low emittance, or equivalently the mean transverse energy from cryogenically cooled photocathodes, with two complementary methods, the waist scan and voltage scan, in one system giving consistent results.
