title: Electron micro-bunch generation from RF photoinjectors
format: conference proceeding
conference: Micro Bunches Workshop
year: 1996
3 authors: L. Serafini | R. Zhang | C. Pellegrini
abstract: In this paper we discuss how the injector specifications of a 2nd-generation plasma beat wave accelerator (PBWA) experiment can be achieved by a photo-injector. Typical required bunch lengths (FWHM) are 50 microns with 15 pC bunch charge. We analyze the possibility of generating such short electron bunches directly from a photoinjector by illuminating a photocathode in an RF electron gun with a phase-locked 160-fs laser pulse. In particular, we address all de-bunching effects taking place during acceleration and transport through the photo-injector. We provide a set of analytical scaling laws, as well as a comparison with detailed simulations of the beam dynamics. The possible performances of the present SATURNUS linac setup are presented, as well as the anticipated capabilities of a multi-cell RF gun structure based on the PWT linac presently in operation at UCLA.
