High-power, relativistic electron beams from energy-recovering linacs have great potential to realize new experimental paradigms for pioneering innovation in fundamental and applied research. A major design consideration for this new generation of experimental capabilities is the understanding of the halo associated with these bright, intense beams. In this Letter, we report on measurements performed using the 100 MeV, 430 kW cw electron beam from the energy-recovering linac at the Jefferson…

A superconducting (SC) linac is expected to lead to outstanding discoveries in various scientific fields because its beam current is a few orders of magnitude larger than in a normal-conducting

Resonant Coherent Diffraction Radiation System at ERL Test Accelerator in KEK

Coherent radiation from a short bunched electron beam has been expected to be a high power source in THz regime. Especially the feature of the modern energy recovery linac is suitable for a high

High-efficiency broadband THz emission via diffraction-radiation cavity

Accelerator-based terahertz (THz) radiation has been expected to realize a high-power broadband source. Employing a low-emittance and short-bunch electron beam at a high repetition rate, a scheme of

CBETA Design Report, Cornell-BNL ERL Test Accelerator

This design report describes the construction plans for the world's first multi-pass SRF ERL. It is a 4-pass recirculating linac that recovers the beam's energy by 4 additional, decelerating passes.

Stimulated Excitation of an Optical Cavity by a Multibunch Electron Beam via Coherent-Diffraction-Radiation Process.

With a low emittance and short-bunch electron beam at a high repetition rate realized by a superconducting linac, stimulated excitation of an optical cavity at the terahertz spectrum range is shown.

Møller scattering at low energy

Møller scattering is one of the most fundamental processes in QED. Its knowledge at high precision is necessary for a variety of modern nuclear and particle physics experiments. However, most

Architectural Considerations for Recirculated and Energy-Recovered Hard XFEL Drivers

A confluence of events motivates discussion of design options for hard x-ray free electron laser (XFEL) driver accelerators. Firstly, multiple superconducting radio-frequency (SRF) driven systems are



A Proposal for the DarkLight Experiment at the Jefferson Laboratory Free Electron Laser

This paper presents a meta-analyses of the proton-proton exchange between Na6(CO3)(SO4) and Na2(SO3) during the second week of May of 1991 and shows clear trends in both the number of collisions and the intensity of the collisions and their consequences.

DarkLight: A Search for Dark Forces at the Jefferson Laboratory Free-Electron Laser Facility

We give a short overview of the DarkLight detector concept which is designed to search for a heavy photon A' with a mass in the range 10 MeV/c^2 invisible decays.
