Lcbacqz, “Klystron performance at SLAC,
- V. J
The purpose of this paper is to describe recent developments at SLAC which have contributed to improvements in beam operation. The paper will be divided into two parts. The first will summarize overall beam performance and operational efficiency in delivering beams to various experiments. The second will be devoted to specific developments such as the achievement of higher energies, increasingly narrow energy spectra, higher beam breakup current thresholds, chopped beams and improvements in pulse-to-pulse operation. The discussion will include a description of various new pulsed devices such as pulsed quadrupoles, improvements in the positron source and new beam loading measurements obtained for very short pulses.
