  journal={arXiv: Accelerator Physics},
This paper presents the design of a travelling wave RF photogun operating at the European X-band frequency of 11.994 GHz. The design is based on a CLIC prototype structure milled from copper halves and uses the unique gap introduced in the geometry to couple in the laser without obstructing the outgoing electron beam. With a modest peak input power of 19 MW and a fill time of 48 ns, the gun has the ability to operate at very high RF pulse repetition rates in comparison to standing wave RF… 



Compact Electron RF Travelling Wave Gun Photo Injector

This paper reports on studies of a travelling wave photo gun as multipurpose device. The gun would be a cost effective and compact alternative to thermionic guns with a bunching system or a standing

rf traveling-wave electron gun for photoinjectors

The design of a photoinjector, in particular that of the electron source, is of central importance for free electron laser (FEL) machines where a high beam brightness is required. In comparison to

Compact x-ray source based on burst-mode inverse Compton scattering at 100 kHz

A design for a compact x-ray light source (CXLS) with flux and brilliance orders of magnitude beyond existing laboratory scale sources is presented. The source is based on inverse Compton scattering

High Power Tests of a Prototype X-Band Accelerating Structure for CLIC

We present the design, construction and high-power test of an X-band radio-frequency accelerating structure, built as a prototype for the CERN LInear Collider (CLIC) study. X-band structures have

Study of a C-Band TW Electron Gun for SwissFEL

For a future upgrade of the SwissFEL facility, the replacement of the S-band standing wave electron gun by a C-band standing wave, or traveling wave gun is investigated. The full model of the C-band

High Power and High Repetition Rate X-band Power Source Using Multiple Klystrons

In July 2016, the first X-band test facility operating with two interwoven RF pulses produced from 6 MW klystron was commissioned at CERN. Outputting up to 49 MW after pulse compression [1], the new
