title: Highlights of AAC 2000 Workshop
format: conference proceeding
conference: Linear Accelerator Conference 2000
year: 2000
1 author: J.B. Rosenzweig
abstract: The Advanced Accelerator Concepts 2000 (AAC2K) Workshop was held in Santa Fe in June, 2000, and included a wide array of conceptual and theoretical advances at the frontier of accelerator physics. This paper reviews the highlights of the workshop, with subjects ranging from acceleration using lasers, plasmas and microstructures, to the beam physics of muon colliders. Particular emphasis is given to the topics which are relevant to research at existing linear accelerator facilities, and the effect of this research on the capabilities of such facilities.

abstract: The use of existing linacs, and in particular light source injectors, for free-electron laser (FEL) experiments is becoming more common due to the desire to test FELs at ever shorter wavelengths. The high-brightness, highcurrent beams required by high gain FELs impose technical specifications that most existing linacs were not designed to meet. Moreover, the need for specialized diagnostics, especially shot-to-shot data acquisition, demands substantial modification and upgrade of conventional linacs. Improvements have been made to the Advanced Photon Source (APS) injector linac in order to produce and characterize high brightness beams. Specifically, effort has been directed at generating beams suitable for use in the low-energy undulator test line (LEUTL) FEL in support of fourth-generation light source research. The enhancements to the linac technical and diagnostic capabilities that allowed for self-amplified spontaneous emission (SASE) operation of the FEL at 530 nm are described. Recent results, including details on technical systems improvements and electron beam measurement techniques, will be discussed. The linac is capable of accelerating beams to over 650 MeV. The nominal FEL beam parameters used are as follows: 217 MeV energy; 0.1-0.2% rms energy spread; 4-8 um normalized rms emittance; 80-120 A peak current from a 0.2-0.7 nC charge at a 2-7 ps FWHM bunch.
