title: Photocathode driven linac at UCLA for FEL and plasma wakefield acceleration experiments
format: conference proceeding
conference: PAC 1991
year: 1991
17 authors: S. Hartman | F. Aghamir | W. Barletta | D. B. Cline | J. Dodd | T. Katsouleas | J. Kolonko | S. Park | C. Pellegrini | J.B. Rosenzweig | Smolin, J. A. | Terrien, C. | J. Davis | G. Hairapetian | C. Joshi | N. Luhmann | D. McDermott
abstract: The UCLA compact 20-MeV/c electron linear accelerators is designed to produce a single electron bunch with a peak current of 200 A, an RMS energy spread of 0.2% or less, and a short 1.2-ps RMS pulse duration. The linac is also designed to minimize emittance growth down the beamline so as to obtain emittances on the order of 8 pi mm-mrad in the experimental region. The linac will feed two beamlines, the first will run straight into the undulator for FEL experiments while the second will be used for diagnostics, longitudinal bunch compression and other electron beam experiments. A description is given of the considerations that went into the design of the accelerating structures and the transport to the experimental areas. (8 References).

title: Saturnus: the UCLA compact infrared free-electron laser project
format: conference proceeding
conference: Intense Microwave and Particle Beams II
year: 1991
16 authors: J. W. Dodd | F. Aghamir | W. Barletta | D. B. Cline | S. C. Hartman | T. C. Katsouleas | J. Kolonko | S. Park | C. Pellegrini | P. G. Davis | C. J. Joshi | N. C. Luhmann | D. B. McDermott | S. N. Ivanchenkov | YuYu Lachin | A. A. Varfolomeev
abstract: Saturnus is an infrared FEL operating in the 10 mu m wavelength region, driven by a compact 20 MeV linac with a photoinjector, under construction at UCLA. The 1.5 cm period, 0.6 T peak field undulator is being built at the Kurchatov IAE. The FEL is designed to operate primarily in the self amplified spontaneous emission mode. The authors plan to study the start-up from noise, optical guiding, saturation, sidebands and superradiance, with emphasis on the effects important for future short wavelength operation of FEL's. The photoinjector follows closely the Brookhaven design. Electrons are injected into an accelerating section based on the plane-wave-transformer design developed by Swenson at SAIC. Simulation of the linac and FEL show a gain length of 10 cm, and a saturation power of 50 MW. (13 References).

title: The UCLA IR-FEL
format: conference proceeding
conference: IEEE International Conference on Plasma Science 1990
year: 1990
11 authors: F. Aghamir | W. Barletta | D. B. Cline | J. Dodd | S. Hartman | C. Joshi | J. Kolonko | N. Luhmann | D. McDermott | C. Pellegrini | C. Terrien
abstract: A high-brightness RF gun operating at 2.856 GHz is being used as the injector for an IR-FEL (free-electron laser) experiment. The RF gun consists of a disk loaded, 1.5 cell cavity and a photocathode in the end wall of the cavity. A strong electric field within the half cell near the photocathode quickly accelerates the electrons, thus preventing emittance blow-up. The photocathode is to be driven by a Nd:YAG laser system producing a 10-ps pulse. The power for the RF gun will be supplied by a 25-MW klystron. The RF power is coupled to the cavity via an S-band waveguide attached to the sidewall of the gun. The TE_10 mode excited in the waveguide strongly couples to the pi-mode with the RF gun while the zero mode is suppressed. (0 References).
