The advantage of Resonant Cavities
Considering RF acceleration, it is obvious that when particles get high
velocitiesthe drift spaces get longer and one loses on the efficiency. The
solution consists of using a higher operating frequency.
The power lost by radiation, due to circulating currents on the electrodes,
is proportional to theRFfrequency. Thesolution consistsofenclosingthe
systemin a cavitywhich resonant frequency matches the RF generator
frequency.
Each such cavity can be independently
powered from the RF generator.
The electromagnetic power is now
constrained in the resonant volume.
Note however that joule losses will
occur in the cavity walls(unlessmade
of superconductingmaterials)

From Maxwell’s equations one can derive
the wave equations:
Solutions for E and H are oscillating modes,
at discrete frequencies, of types TM orTE.
For l<2a the most simple mode, TM010, has
the lowest frequency ,and has only two field
components:
The Pill Box Cavity (2)
The design of a pillboxcavity can
be sophisticated in order to
improve its performances:
A nose cone can be introduced in
order to concentrate the electric
fieldaround the axis,
Round shaping of the corners
allows a betterdistribution of the
magnetic field on the surface and a
reduction of the Joule losses.
A good cavity is a cavity which
efficiently transforms the RF
power into accelerating voltage.

maximum energy gain:
Consider the most general case and make use of complex notations:
Introducing:
Let’s consider a succession of accelerating gaps, operating in the 2πmode,
for which the synchronism condition is fulfilled for a phase Φ
s .
For a 2πmode,

If an increase in energy is transferred into an increase in velocity, M1 & N1
will move towards P1(stable), while M

The Synchrotron
The synchrotron is a synchronous accelerator since there is a synchronous RF
phase for which the energy gain fits the increase of the magnetic field at each
turn. That implies the following operating conditions:

•The number of stable synchronous particles is equal to the harmonic
number h. They are equally spaced along the circumference.
•Each synchronous particle satifiesthe relation p=eBρ. They have the

Longitudinal Dynamics
It is also often called “synchrotron motion”.
The RF acceleration process clearly emphasizes two coupled
variables, the energy gained by the particle and the RF
phase experienced by the same particle. Since there is a
well defined synchronous particle which has always the same
phase φs, and the nominal energy Es, it is sufficient to follow
other particles with respect to that particle. So let’s
introduce the following reduced variables:
revolution frequency : Δfr
= fr
–f
rs
particle RF phase : Δφ= φφs
particle momentum : Δp = p p
s
particle energy : ΔE = E –E

Equation of the separatrix:
When φreaches πφs
the force goes
to zero and beyond it becomes non

RF Acceptance versus Synchronous Phase
As the synchronous phase
gets closer to 90ºthe
area of stable motion
(closed trajectories) gets
smaller. These areas are
often called “BUCKET”.
The number of circulating
buckets is equal to “h”.
The phase extension of
the bucket is maximum
for φs =180º(or 0°) which
correspond to no
acceleration . The RF
acceptance increases with
the RF voltage.
