Bazarov, CLASSE seminar2IntroductionERL as alternative to storage rings as a continuous source of hard x-raysElectron (primary beam) brightnessE.g. modern storage rings: 200 mA 3 / 0.03 nm-rad horizontal / vertical emittancesERL with Iavg = 100 mA, need x,y = 0.2 nm-rad, or assuming = 104, nx,y = 2 mm-mrad normalized rms (source) emittance for comparable performanceShort pulses desired (by some): ~1 ps at GHz rateApril 24, 2009I.V. Bazarov, CLASSE seminar3

ParametersNo suitable electron source exists to drive an ERLCornell ERL prototype proposed in 2001: to address outstanding source and high avg current issuesApril 24, 2009I.V. Bazarov, CLASSE seminar4

Timeline2001: ERL prototype proposal submitted2005: NSF funds the injector part (~45%) of the proposal, $$$ received on Valentines day2006: Sept 7, 1st beam time out of DC gun2007-8: Photocathode studies and space charge characterization underway using 50MHz laser2008: Spring. Completion of the SRF injector cryomodule2008: Summer. Accelerator installation finished. July 9, 1st beam with all SRF cavities onApril 24, 2009I.V. Bazarov, CLASSE seminar6Why DC gun?Three photogun types: DC, normal conducting RF, superconducting RFDC: 10mA max, 5 mm-mrad (100 pC) good vacuum (low gradient 10 MV/m, breakdn.)RF: 32mA max, 5-10 mm-mrad (1-7nC), some vacuum issues (26MV/m cathode gradient, heating)SRF: promises 30MV/m or more cathode field, good vacuum, no experience with high current (yet)No fundamental reason to choose one or the other: we picked DC gun because of expertise availableApril 24, 2009I.V.

10 MeV photoinjectorgun dev. labbefore 03/2008Beam studies after the DC gun till 03/2008Thereafter, commissioning the 10MeV injectorTechnical area: DC gun & laserApril 24, 2009I.V. Bazarov, CLASSE seminar9DC photogun operational for over 3 yearsStrong points: quick photocathode removal & activation, excellent vacuum (good lifetime)Major issue: field emission & ceramic puncture (425250 kV)Laser system: individual pulse characteristics demonstrated at 26 lower rep. rateRan into several (thermal handling) difficulties when trying to extend avg power to 20W green (>50 W IR)

Bazarov, CLASSE seminar10Talk next week by MatthiasRF installation beam ready as of May 2008SRF cavities processed to allow 10MeV operation, further processing underway to reach 15MeV (some issues with low Q0s)Good field stabilityTricky to setup 1st cavity due to Vgun = 250 kVDiscovered problems with stray magnetic fields inside the module
