•
Many applications of CW photoemission sources (RF,
DC,
etc
) need large charge per bunch:
•
And the Cornell ERL (~100pC)?
•
Interplay between gun Energy, photocathode field,
and max. charge extractable. What is the maximum?
Motivation
LCLS II high charge
mode (~
0.3
nC
)
•
Transverse Limits:
–
Space charge force damped as
→
𝛾

, want
higher voltage for smaller
emittance
•
Longitudinal Limit:
–
Long. space charge overwhelms acceleration
force, charge extraction ceases
–
Simple case of fully filled planar diode:

What if the bunch is short, it not filling whole
diode region (like a laser pulse)?

A bit later:
•
Dave Dowell (1997) measured this beam
breakup in the ELSA injector
•
Only took projections of phase space:

•
Using quadratic and cubic aberration terms, fit
the full long. phase space:
Previous Measurement
•
The 3D relations of
Koh
, et al. have not been
experimentally verified to date.
•
Dowell’s measurement was only indirect. Can we
measure the real virtual cathode phase space?
•
Can we reproduce
Koh’s
results in simulation?
–
Track beam of various pulse lengths of given radius
through ERL
photogun
.
–
Increase bunch charge until some particles are
reflected back toward cathode
—
this is the critical
current!

What does the phase space actually look like above the limit?
What about the transverse distribution? How does the
emittance
change?

Full Phase Space Measurement in R128
•
EMS system measures vertical phase space,
via two horizontal 30um slits, and box
correctors (4 total).
•
Deflector cavity converts time position to
vertical position

> allows measurement of
longitudinal profile (bunch length)
•
Vertical slits make resolution better.
•
A collimating slit (120 um vertical slit) and
dipole magnet measures energy spread

•
ERL laser pulses exit the final amplifier around
~2.5 ps. Too small! Use pulse stacking to
lengthen:
•
Can remove a crystals to shorten. Allows for a
pulse length scan.
•
Can rotate second crystal away from 45 degrees
to give head/tail slope.

Modulate:
•
CW sources continue to demand charges at
the space charge limit.
•
The onset of the limit has not been fully
measured.
–
The virtual cathode instability has only been
measured indirectly
–
The 3D modifications of CL have not been verified
in experiment.
•
We’re all set up in R128 to do it. Stay tuned!
