title: The LCLS Single-shot Relative Bunch Length Monitor System
format: conference proceeding
conference: Erice 2005
year: 2006
4 authors: Sven Reiche | M. Dunning | G. Travish | J.B. Rosenzweig
abstract: The Particle Beam Physics Lab (PBPL) at UCLA is developing a single-shot relative bunch length monitor system for the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray Free Electron Laser at SLAC. To ensure high-quality lasing, feedback systems are needed. The bunch length monitor system will be a crucial part of the linac longitudinal feedback system, which is necessary to keep the final peak beam current stable. The system will consist of two multi-channel single-shot grating polychromators, one after each bunch compressor, and will use the coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) or coherent edge radiation (CER) from bunch compressor chicane dipole magnets. Details of the system will be presented, and the system will be compared to alternatives. Plans for testing and integration into the LCLS beamline will be presented as well.

title: PRELIMINARY RESULTS FROM THE UCLA/SLAC ULTRA-HIGH GRADIENT CERENKOV WAKEFIELD ACCELERATOR EXPERIMENT
format: conference proceeding
conference: Erice 2005
year: 2006
12 authors: M.C. Thompson | H. BADAKOV | J.B. Rosenzweig | G. Travish | M. Hogan | R. Ischebeck | N. Kirby | P. Muggli | A. Scott | R. Siemann | D. Walz | R. Yoder
abstract: The first phase of an experiment to study the performance of dielectric Cerenkov wakefield accelerating structures at extremely high gradients in the GV/m range has been completed. This experiment takes advantage of the unique SLAC FFTB electron beam and its demonstrated ultra-short pulse lengths and high currents (e.g., ?z = 20 ?m at Q = 3 nC). The FFTB electron beam has been successfully focused down and sent through varying lengths of fused silica capillary tubing with two different sizes: ID = 200 ?m / OD = 325 ?m and ID = 100 ?m / OD = 325 ?m. The pulse length of the electron beam was varied in the range 20 ?m < ?z < 100 ?m which produced a range of electric fields between 2 and 20 GV/m at the inner surface of the dielectric tubes. We observed a sharp increase in optical emissions from the capillaries in the middle part of this surface field range which we believe indicates the transition between sustainable field levels and breakdown. If this initial interpretation is correct, the surfaced fields that were sustained equate to on axis accelerating field of several GV/m. In future experiments we plan to collect and measure coherent Cerenkov radiation emitted from the capillary tube to gain more information about the strength of the accelerating fields.

title: EXPERIMENTAL TESTING OF DYNAMICALLY OPTIMIZED PHOTOELECTRON BEAMS
format: conference proceeding
conference: Erice 2005
year: 2006
16 authors: J.B. Rosenzweig | A.M. Cook | M. Dunning | R. J. England | P. Musumeci | M. Bellaveglia | M. Boscolo | L. Catani | A. Cianchi | G. Di Pirro | M. Ferrario | D. Filipetto | G. Gatti | L. Palumbo | L. Serafini | C. Vicario
abstract: We discuss the design of and initial results from an experiment in space-charge dominated beam dynamics which explores a new regime of high-brightness electron beam generation at the SPARC (located at INFN-LNF, Frascati) photoinjector. The scheme under study employs the natural tendency in intense electron beams to configure themselves to produce a uniform density, giving a nearly ideal beam from the viewpoint of space charge-induced emittance. The experiments are aimed at testing the marriage of this idea with a related concept, emittance compensation, We show that the existing infrastructure at SPARC is nearly ideal for the proposed tests, and that this new regime of operating photoinjector may be the preferred method of obtaining highest brightness beams with lower energy spread. We discuss the design of the experiment, including developing of a novel time-dependent, aerogel-based imaging system. This system has been installed at SPARC, and first evidence for nearly uniformly filled ellipsoidal charge distributions recorded.

title: RESULTS FROM THE UCLA/FNPL UNDERDENSE PLASMA LENS EXPERIMENT
format: conference proceeding
conference: Erice 2005
year: 2006
11 authors: M.C. Thompson | H. Badakov | J.B. Rosenzweig | G. Travish | H. Edwards | R. Fliller | G. M. Kazakevich | P. Piot | J. Santucci | J. Li | R. Tikhoplav
abstract: A gaussian underdense plasma lens with peak density 5 x 1012 cm?3 and a full width half maximum (FWHM) length of 2.2 cm has been used to focus a relativistic electron beam. This plasma lens is equivalent in strength to a quadrupole magnet with a 150 T/m field gradient. The lens focused a 15 MeV, 16 nC electron beam with initial dimensions ?x,y ? 650 ?m and ?z ? 6.5 mm onto an optical transition radiation (OTR) screen ?2 cm downstream of the lens. The average transverse area of the plasma focused electron beam was typically demagnified by a factor of 23. The evolution of the beam envelope in the area near the beam waist was measured for both round beams and asymmetric beams with x:y aspect ratios as large as 1:5. The light from the OTR screen in the round beam case was also imaged into a streak camera in order to directly measure the correlation between z and ? within the beam.
