Abstract
12
The main travelling wave linacs of the compact linear collider
(CLIC) operate at a frequency of 12 GHz with a
13
phase advance per cell of 2π/3. In order to minimise the overall footprint of the accelerator, large accelerating
14
gradient
s are
sought
. The present baseline design for the main linac
s
of CLIC demands an average electric field
15
of 100 MV/m. To achieve this in practical cavities entails the dual challenges of minimising the potential for
16
electrical breakdown and ensuring the beam excited wa
kefield is sufficiently suppressed. We present a design to
17
meet both of these conditions,
together with a description of
the
structure
,
CLIC_DDS_A
,
expressively designed
18
to experimentally test the ability of the structure to cope with high powers.

Introduction
26
The aim of the CLIC project is to collide multiple bunches of electrons and positrons
at a 3 TeV centre of
27
mass energy. In order to achieve high accelerating gradients within the cavities, normal conducting (NC) linacs
28
are employed [1

3].
The CLIC baseline design aims at an accelerating gradient of 100 MV/m [4

5] with an X

29
band frequency of
12 GHz. This frequency resulted from a detailed optimisation procedure based on various
30
simulations [4

5].
The curves representing the optimisation parameters are relatively flat in the vicinity of 12 to
31
15 GHz. The 12 GHz frequency was chosen as it is
close to the frequency used in the next linear collider
32
(NLC) [6] programme and hence the wealth of knowledge developed over two decades can be capitalised upon.
33
2
There are two phenomena which must be taken into account when designing these accelerating
structures:
34
electrical breakdown and beam

excited wakefields. The former can be addressed both by carefully designing the
35
structure such that the surface e.m. fields are minimised and by paying attention to the surface morphology.
As
36
for the wakefields, t
hey have both short

range (along the bunch) and long

range (along the bunch train)
37
components. The short

range wakefield is a strong function of the iris aperture and is not the focus of this study.
38
Here we present a design for suppressing the long

range w
akefield, whilst minimising the surface e.m. fields on
39
the walls of the accelerating structures. The method for damping the wakefields entails detuning each of the cell
40
frequencies, by tapering down the irises along the structure, and providing moderate (
Q
~1000) coupling to four
41
attached manifolds [6]. This method is similar to that adopted in the NLC, however, with stronger constraints
42
imposed due to the larger gradients required. This resulted in
markedly
different outer cavity wall design.
The
43
design pre
sented here is an alternative
to
the baseline design for the main linacs of CLIC, which relies
on
heavy
44
damping (
Q
~10 [5]) through strongly coupled waveguides attached to each cell. However, we maintain the same
45
number of cells in
the
CLIC_DDS_A design.
Other wakefield suppression strategies are possible [
7
].
46
In the
CLIC
damped and detuned
structures (DDS)
,
the focus of this work
, both the fundamental
47
(accelerating) mode and the higher order dipole modes
(HOMs)
are calculated. In both cases, the
48
elec
tromagnetic (e.m.) fields in single cells is calculated using codes which rely on
representing the geometry
49
with a finite element based mesh. For a sufficiently fine mesh, an accurate representation of the e.m. fields is
50
obtained. The beam loaded accelerat
ing field is calculated from an integral [
8
] representation of the energy flux
51
within the overall cavity, based on the field in
individual
cells.
The transverse dipole field is calculated from a
52
circuit model [
6,
9

11
], designed to represent dipole mode sl
ot

coupled
to waveguide like manifolds. This
53
circuit model and its spectral function [
6,
11
] generalisation, provides a design tool to allow the influence of
54
geometrical modifications to be rapidly accounted for in the wakefield calculations. This unique t
ool has been
55
validated on several
previous
NLC structures and has proved to be an accurate prediction of the wakefield [6
,
56
11
].
57
The CLIC_DDS design
is based upon the knowledge gain
ed
and documented from the NLC studies. However,
58
the geometrical change implemented in CLIC_DDS
to minimise the pulsed temperature rise
is
based on
the
59
baseline design of the CLIC main linacs which is waveguide damped structure
(
WDS
known as
CLIC_G
[4

5]
).
60
W
e report on various stages involved in evolving CLIC_DDS so as to satisfy the stringent constraints imposed
61
by the rf breakdown and beam dynamics criteria. In order to rapidly realise the bandwidth necessary for the
62
wakefield suppression,
detuned
structure
s
(DS)
have been studied
first.
In all cases, we prescribe a Gaussian
63
distribution for suppression of the wakefields.
We
learned that a bandwidth of ~3.3 GHz is necessary to
64
suppress the wakefield to satisfy the beam dynamics criterion for an inter

bunch s
pacing of 6 rf cycles.
65
The paper is structure
d
such that the next section presents an overview of early designs for CLIC which fail to
66
subsequently satisfy both the electrical breakdown and beam dynamics constraints. This is followed by a design
67
to
overcome these limitations. The final section provides some concluding remarks together with future
68
prospects for a design which will be tested for high power.

Means To Independently Satisfy RF Breakdown And Beam

73
In all cases, w
e utilise
a
finite element code HFSS [

, calculate
t

74
and eigen modes within the sructure.

by varying cavity radius (

to
75
the accelerating frequency of 11.994 GHz for
a given iris raius (

) and iris thickness
(

)
.
Dispersion curves are
76
obtained from the circuit
model
[

. For a cell subjected to infinite periodic condition the dispersion relation

The calculation of group velocity
(derivative of eq. 1
[14]
)
is fol
l
owed by the
c
alculation
of the dipole mode
84
synchronous frequency.
We model seven single cells to
represent
a structure of 25 cells.
As the power absorbed
85
in the breakdown is
strongly dependent on both surface e.m. fields and
the
fundamental mode group velocity
86
[
1
5
]
, we
maintain
a
low group velocity by changing the iris
thickness from 5.7
mm
(cell 1)
to 0.5
mm
(cell 25)
.

Parameters of this large bandwidth DS are
presented in Table 1.
The ratio of average iri
s radius (<a>) to
89
accelerating wavelength (
λ
) for this structure is 0.142.
It is important to minimise this ratio so as to reduce the
90
breakdown possibility
[6]
.
91
An
optimal design, in terms of rapid damping of the dipole wakefield results in an iris radius taper down from
92
4.95
mm to 2.15
mm results in a dipole bandwidth of ~3.3 GHz
[
16
]
.
The iris radius follows an erf distribution
93
with cell number.
The bandwidth (
∆
f
) in terms of the standard
deviation
of a Gaussian distribution
(
σ
) is:
∆
f
=
94
3.6
σ
. The detuning spread
in this structure
is 20% of the central frequency.
Once the synchronous
frequencies
95
and kick
factors are calculated using
computational
tool
(uncoupled m
ode)
,
we calculate
the
coupled mode
96
frequencies and kicks so as to account for the cell

to

cell interaction
s
using a
double band circuit model [1
3
]
. In
97
this structure, we observed
an approximately
200 MHz shift in the coupled mode
frequencies with respect to the
98
uncoupled mode
due to the interaction
s
of the
fields coupled through
irise
s.
The representation of a Gaussian
99
distribution needs better sampling, 25 cells are clearly not
sufficient
for this purpose. In this case, wakefield
100
decay in a 25 cell structure is not
adequate
to meet the beam dynamics criterion. Hence
,
we interleave
a number
101
of structures to satisfy the beam dynamics criteria.
An
8

fold interleaving provides the necessary suppression of
102
the wakefield.
The transverse
long

range wakefield is calculated using the modal sum method as follows [

For
this geometry, the surface e.m. field on the copper walls, on the other hand is too large. The
112
electrical breakdown constraints are not met.
113
The motivation behind investigating a reduced bandwidth structure is
also
to
enable
the rf breakdown
114
constraints
to be satisfied
.
This leads us to match the end cell iris dimensions to the CLIC_G structure, with a
115
tapering of Gaussian function. In this case, the ratio of
<a>/λ
reduces
to
0.1 and
the
average group velocity also
116
reduces by ~20%
, [
18,19
]
.
The structure
now satisfies rf breakdown constraints. However, t
he
structure
117
4
bandwidth reduces significantly
to ~0.9 GHz resulting in severe wakefields on the
first two trailing bunches
and
118
is illustrated by the
blue curve
in Fig. 4
.
For a moderate damping with reduced bandwidth,
a
possible way to
119
s
a
tisfy both the constraints is to increase the bunch spacing by a factor of 3 i.e. to 18 cycles (1.5 ns).
In this case
,
120
the rf

to

beam efficiency reduces
down
to
an unacceptable value of
8 t
o
10%.
The other
possible option is to rely
121
upon zero crossing scheme. When wakefield is calculated, an excursion of the envelope is cal
culated.
H
owever
,
122
the wake
experienced
by the bunch may be small. In this case, the iris dimensions of the structure
(
s
)
a
re tuned in
123
such a way that the bunches see almost zero
amplitude
of the wakefield (and not the envelope). Wakefield in a
124
structure implemented with zero crossing is illustrated in Fig. 4, here the location of
the
dots represent
bunches.
125

126
The
CLIC
project requires more than
140
,

[
7
]
accelerating structures
.
In
practic
e,
it will be
difficult to
127
maintain the zero crossing schem
e for
all
structure
s
. M
eeting the mechanical
tolerances
to build these structure
s
128
is also challenging.
A
possible solution for
a
moderately damped DDS is to relax the bunch spacing
,
whilst
129
loosing a few percentage in overall efficiency and to choose a structure wi
th a moderate dipole bandwidth
.
In
130
this manner a
trade off between the bandwidth and efficiency is
investigat
ed in the next section.

A structure Satisfying RF Breakdown And Beam Dynamics
132
Constraints
133
After realising the necessary bandwidth range for
satisfying the beam dynamics constraint by studying DS, a
134
conventional circular cell incor
porated with manifold geometry wa
s studied.
The p
rofile of a typical DDS cell is
135
presented in Fig. 6, where
R
M
is the radius of the manifold and
R
c
is the radial distance of the manifold coupling
136
slot from the electrical centre of the cavity.
This structure
consists
of 24 accelerating cells
and
is known as
137
CLIC_DDS_C. The taper in the iris radius ranges from 4
mm to 2.3 mm to provide a bandwidth of ~
2.3 GHz
.
138
The ratio of
<
a>
/
λ
for this structure is 0.126.
DDS_C incorporate
s
manifolds,
slot

coupled to the accelerating
139
cells
. Th
e
s
e
coupling slot
s
perturb the cell wall,
and cause
more current to flow in the vicinity of the slot
,
140
leading to excessive surface magnetic field
s
(H

field).
The average peak power requirement of
an
8

fold
141
interleaved DDS_C i
s ~73 MW to maintain an average accelerating
gradient
of 100 MV/m
.
The
bunch
142
population
in this case is
chosen to be
4.2 x 10
9
. Howe
ver, for this structure
bunches can be populated
up to
5.0
143
x 10
9
. I
n
this case, the input power requirement will increase to ~76 MW.
The average rf

to

beam efficiency is
144
~23%
. The enhancement of the H

field in the coupling slots results in a pulsed
surface
temperature rise of 72° K
145
for an rf pulse length of
~
250 ns
.
The pulsed
surface
temperature rise along the structure length in each of the 8
146
structures of DDS_C is illustrated in Fig. 7. As can be seen, the structure observes nearly 30%
(
the tolera
ble
147
limit is 56° K [4,
5])
temperature rise towards the downstream end
and
fails to meet the rf
breakdown constraint
.
148
An accurate determination of the dipole properties of this structure is facilitated by the circuit model [6
,
9] and
149
spectral function
method [
6, 11
].
This is necessary in order to accurately predict the wakefield for a multi

cell
150
structure
,
slot

coupled to wave guide like manifolds.
The
l
owest dipole bandwidth
in
this structure
is:
∆
f
= 3.6
σ
151
= 2.33 GHz
and
t
he detuning spread is 13.7%
of the central frequency
.

contains various circuit parameters involved and is defined in [

].
165
The
wakefield is calculated by taking in
verse Fourier transform of the s

The s
pectral function of
166
an
8

fold interleave
d DDS_C is illustrated in Fig. 9
and
the corresponding
wakefield in Fig.
10
.
As the dipole
167
bandwidth in this case is moderat
e,
the
wakefield decay should be rapid enough to meet the beam dynamics
168
criterion.
In order to meet the beam dynamics constraint, t
he
inter

bunch spacing
in this case
is
relaxed to
8 rf
169
cycles (0.67 ns)
from the base

line 6 rf cycles
.
It is inevitable to
relax the bunch
spac
ing
in a structure with
170
moderate bandwidth
.
I
n this way
,
the beam dynamics criterion is satisfied at the cost of few percentage loss in
171
the efficiency.
The wakefield in this case is damped beyond the beam dynamics limit which is shown b
y dashed
172
line in Fig.
10
.
Though
the
wakefield suppression in this structure is
adequate
, DDS_C
need
s
further
173
optimis
ation
to meet the rf breakdown criteria, this is discussed in the next section.
174
The
H

field in a
standard
circular cell is uniformly
distributed along the surface of the cell. When the surface
175
is perturbed, to inc
orporate for manifold coupling,
the
field in this region gets enhanced.
For a circular
un

176
d
a
mped
cell of iris radius 4
mm, the
normalised
H

field
(
with respect to the
accelerating field
)
on the cell wall is
177
~3.8 mA/V. When the cell
wall
is perturbed by a coupling slo
t
of width
3 mm, the enhancement in the
H

field
178
peaks up
to 6 mA/V i.e. nearly 60% enhancement.
The p
ulsed temperature rise is proportional to the square o
f
179
the H

field [
21
]. Reducing the iris radius also reduces the H

field, however, it also
affects
the dipole bandwidth.
180
In this case it is necessary to re

distribute the H

field on the cavity wall, and insert the manifold coupling slot at
181
a location where
the
field is minimum. This re

distribution reduces
the
field enhancement.
In order to study the
182
field distribution in the absence of manifold slots
i.e. an un
damped cell
, a range of cells with modified walls
183
have been studied and are illustrated in Fig 1
1
.
The modified cavity
shape
is
defined in terms of an ellipse
ε
with
184
A
and
B
as semi

major and semi

m
i
nor axis respec
t
ively
[
22
]
.
For
B
= 0,
ε
=
∞
and the cell wall is rectangular
185
and a circular wall corresponds to
ε
= 1
.
The variation of
the
normalised
H

field along the contour
of an
186
undamped cell is presented in Fig. 12
.
The
dashed line in this figure represents an approximate location where
187
manifold slot will be introduced.
A
manifold of slot width
2.5
mm was introduced
.
T
he field enhancement
for
188
selected
shapes
is illustrated in Fig. 1
3
.
As can be seen, for an elliptical cell of
ε
=
1.38, the field enhancement
189
is
a
minim
um
.
T
here is no field enhancement
in the vicinity of the coupling slots
compared to the peak field
190
within this cell.
The peak normalised H

field on the cell contour is now ~4
.4
mA/V. However, there is still some
191
field enhancement towards the tip of the manifold slots which
is
~5
mA/m.
192
The
iris thickness was also
optimised
to minimis
e
the surface electric field
(E

fi
eld)
.
The new structure
193
incorporating an elliptical outer wall and modified iris thickness is known as DDS_E.
A change in iris thickness
194
primarily affects
four
rf parameters:
1
)
the
surface
E

field,
2
)
the
fundamental mode group velocity
(
v
g
)
,
3
)
shunt
195
impedance
(R)
, which affects
the
input power requirement and hence efficiency of acceleration (
rf

to

beam
196
efficiency
)
and
4
)
dipole bandwidth.
Several structures with a range of iris thickness
es
were studied by
197
comparing the
ir rf
properties such as surface E

field, input power requirement, rf

to

beam efficiency and dipole
198
bandwidth.
In this process, the rf properties of the structures
(
DDS_E
)
were compared with
a
reference
199
structure
.
The cavity wall of the reference structure
is
elliptical with
iris
radii and
thickness
es
retained from
200
DDS_C
.
A comparison of the rf properties of the reference structure with various other structures is
shown in
201
Fig. 1

.
In this optimisation we realised that b
eyond
the
average iris thickness of
2.65
mm, surface
E

field
202
remains almost
invaria
nt
.
The
input power
is reduced and
hence the efficiency of acceleration increases
.
203
However,
the
dipole bandwidth
is reduced
.
Considering the trade

off between the efficiency and dipole
204
bandwidth, an average iris t
hickness of 2.65
mm
was optimised which gives a taper in the iris from 4
mm to 1.3
205
mm.
This demands an
average input power for the 8

fold interleaved DDS_E o
f
69.5 MW. The
overall
average
206
rf

to

beam efficiency in this case is 24%.
The maximum
surface E

field is 251 MV/m and the pulsed
207
6
temperature rise is 52° K, which is reduced by
~28
%
compared to DDS_C
.
As the fields on the cell wall
s
were
208
reduce
d
due to modifications in the geometry, the coupling
of the dipole modes also reduced
. This affects
the
209
wakefield suppression adversely. However, the wakefield is still suppressed beyond the beam dynamics limit. A
210
comparison of
the
wakefield in DDS_C a
nd DDS_E is presented in Fig. 15
.
A test structure, which is
the
first
211
out of
eight

fold interleaved st
ructures of DDS_E is being
fabricated.
The properties of the test structure
are
212
discussed in the next section.
213

S
tructure
Optimised For High Power Testing
214
In order to test the high power performance of DDS_E, a test structure known as DDS_A has been
designed.
215
HOM couplers are omitted as the purpose of this structure is to evaluate the ability of the accelerator to sustain
216
high powers.
The first structure
(out of eight
DDS_E
) is
used
b
ecause
it has the largest
aperture
compared to
217
other
interleaved
structures
(and is also the reason
why it
ne
eds relatively more input power
)
.
Therefore
, the
218
breakdown rates in this structure are expected to be severe compared to the remaining
interleaved
structures.
In
219
order to make the design of the structure
easy
as
far as
the
mechanical and cost point of view is concerned,
the
220
manifold dimension
s
are kept constant
throughout
the structure. The consequence of which is poor coupling of
221
the dipole modes to the manifold, hence
the
wakefield is non

optimal in this case.
As the primary aim of this
222
non

interleaved structure is to test the high power performance, we do not expect wakefield to be damped
223
adequately.
Detailed geometric parameters of DDS_A are presented in Table 2.
In [
2
3
]
,
a
new local
quantity
(
S
c
)
224
is defined, and is termed as
modified Poynting vector,
to calculate the
complex
power flow from the structures.
225
It
provides
the limit on
the
rf
gradient in presence of
electrical
breakdown.
The m
axima
in
the E, H and S
c
fields
226
in DDS_A ce
lls are presented
in Fig. 16 [
22
].
The fundamental mode rf
parameters of the s
ingle cells are
227
illustrated in Fig. 17 and overall structure properties both in beam loaded and unloaded conditions are presented
228
in Fig. 18.
229
The spectral function of DDS_A is illustrated in F
ig. 19. The
Q
of the dip
o
le m
odes is calculated by fitting a
230
Lorentzian [
17
] to the peaks in
s
pectral function.
The average dipole
Q
in this structure is ~1650
and is
231
illustrated in Fig. 20.
The w
akefield in DDS_A is illustrated in Fig. 21.
232
The calculations involved in optimising the structure for fundamental as well as dipole mode properties are
233
based on single infinitely
long
periodic cells. However, wakefield calculations do involve circuit parameters to
234
account for the coupled mode intera
ctions. In order to build a realistic structure, we need to design matching
235
cells at the either ends of the structure (regular cells) to match the impedance of the structure to minimise the
236
reflection.
Instead of a conventional rf power coupler,
CLIC_
DDS_A
will be powered using a mode launcher
237
[
24, 25
]
. In order to minimise the overall reflection in the structure, we design matching cells, at either ends of
238
the structure.
The matching procedure
begins with designing the cells
as indicated in Fig. 22. Here,
the geometry
239
in the middle is the first (or last) regular cell provided with matching cells at the either ends and beam pipes at
240
the extreme ends. This, in principle, is similar to a constant impedance structure. The matching parameters such
241
as matching ir
is
a
, matching cavity radius
b
and matching gap length
L
are varied to minimise the reflection
242
(S
11
) at the operating frequency.
In this way, both the end cells are designed. However, the real geometry is not
243
the constant impedance but constant gradient type, hence the matching parameters (
a
,
b
and
L
) need to be fine
244
tuned for a real tapered structure. After defining a complete 3D
structure of 24 regular cells + 2 matching cells
245
in
simulation software (HFSS [
1
2
]), we fine tune the matching parameters for the whole structure using Kroll
246
method [
26
]. This time we minimise the standing wave ratio (SWR) in the structure. I
n
this way
,
th
e complete
247
structure is tuned including the matching cells. The
accelerating
field in the fully tuned structure is illustrated
in
248
Fig. 23. The extreme peaks in this plot correspond to the matching cell accelerating field
s
. These peaks are
249
dissimilar to the
regular cell peaks due to the fact that
the
matching cell lengths are different compared to the
250
regular cell
lengths. The erf tapering of the regular cells is evident in the full
y
tuned structure accelerating field.
251
The accelerating field phase advance pe
r cell is also illustrated in Fig. 23. Here, a nearly triangular shape profile
252
reflects the 120° phase advance. The maximum deviation in the phase advance per cell is no more than 6°. The
253
discrepancy
from a perfect triangular shape can be understood i
n
the following ways: i) difference in the
254
extreme (regular) irises due to error function tapering, ii) use of only 9 cells to represent full structure of 24
255
cells, iii)
difference in the cell length
s
of the matching cells
compared to regular cell length
.
T
he S parameters
256
7
of th
e
fully tuned structure are presented in Fig. 24.
In this case, the simulation results of S
11
=

54 dB (2.24 x
257
10

6
) has been achieved
at the operating frequency
.
The
quality factor
as a function of frequency
is
presented in
258
Fig. 2
5
.
259
The fabrication of the D
D
S_A cells is in progress and the test cells
(discs)
are shown in Fig. 2
6
. A complete
260
CAD drawing of DDS_A, consisting of 24 regular cells and 2 matching cells is illustrated in Fig. 2
7
.
The overall
261
parameters of the DDS_A are su
mmarised in Table 3.

Final Remarks
263
Though the rf breakdown and beam dynamics constraints are stringent in
the
CLIC main linacs,
a design
264
incorporated with
a relaxed bunch spacing, moderate bandwidth and modified
outer
cell wall
meets the design
265
constraints
provided
eight

fold inte
rleaving
of dipole frequencies is employed
.
