Test facility for gun development and high gradient research. With contributions from the High Power Microwave Group.

 

The facility includes:

  • Two X-band 50 MW klystrons that can be combined.
  • A variable length pulse compressor that can produce up to 500 MW.
  • The most agile RF system suitable for fast turn around of experiments.
  • One 40 MW S-band klystron
  • IR and UV short pulse lasers

Programs intended for this facility:

  • Scan the material for RF accelerator structures using the single cell accelerator structure technology as vehicle for these studies.
  • Test Dielectric Accelerator structures in collaboration with ANL
  • Test highly damped RF structures in collaboration with CERN and KEK
  • Test superconducting materials and structures
  • Photo cathode RF gun development

This facility is used for testing:

  • Superconducting materials (we tested various samples of niobium and magnesium diboride)
  • Single cell accelerator structures ( We tested our reusable universal couplers and our reference traveling wave accelerator structure)
  • Cathode quantum efficiency
  • Cathode laser cleaning
