Ultra-short electron pulses suffer from transverse wake fields resulting in a degradation of the beam quality. Since transverse emittance is a crucial parameter for FEL drivers, a careful characterization of wakefields is necessary in the design and commissioning phase of a high-brightness linear accelerator. In thispaperwe investigatethe effectoftransversewakefields in the MAX IV linac. Estimations of the wakepotentials have been done with 2D modeling of the accelerating structures as well as… CONTINUE READING
