abstract: With increasing demand for high brightness, low emittance beams for use with freeelectron lasers, Compton scattering systems and wake-field accelerator experiments, stringent requirements have been placed on the design and operation of the 1.6 cell photoinjector. The proposed hybrid photoinjector combines the BNL/UCLA/SLAC style 1.5/1.6 cell standing wave gun with a traveling wave accelerator. Our goal is an injector that meets today’s requirements and is scalable in design to meet tomorrow’s demands: emittances in the region of 1 mm-mrad for higher brightness as well as higher currents. The hybrid photoinjector also offers higher energy operation, enhanced cost effectiveness and better scalability than current designs such as integrated PWT photoinjectors and split gun/accelerating sections. The use of both SW and TW systems allows for higher gradients (Eo = 70 MV/m) in the SW gun for effective capture at lower emittances, while the lower energy acceleration in the TW sections (Eo = 13.5 MV/m) allows generation of higher energy beams which are less sensitive to space charge effects. We note the current results of simulation of beam dynamics, en,x = 3 mm-mrad, an energy spread of 1.5% with beam energies of 21 MeV at currents as high as 1.2 kA. Further we explore the possibilities of scalability to higher frequencies, analysis of coupling design, present cold test preparations and simulated RF analysis of the structure.
