17 Particle acceleration Emittance- trajectory slope- the normalized emittance is conserved during acceleration
18 Particle acceleration Methods of particle accelerationCockroft-Waltongenerator(1930)The energy of relativistic particlewith the relativistic momentumcan be changed in EM field
19 Particle acceleration Acceleration in electrostatic fieldVan de GraffacceleratorThe energy capability of this sort of devices is limited by voltage breakdown, and for higher energies one is forced to turn to other approaches.Daresbury, ~20MeV
20 Particle acceleration Acceleration to higher energy?The particles are sent repeatedly through the electrostatic field.No pure acceleration is obtained.The electric field exists outside the plates. This field decelerates the particle.Time dependent electromagnetic field!Maxwell‘s equations (1865)generelized Ampere‘s lawFaraday‘s lawCoulomb‘s lawabsence of free magnetic poles
21 Particle acceleration Acceleration to higher energy?Faraday‘s lawBetatronRF resonatorsBER
22 Betatron main coils corrector coils yoke vacuum chamber beam The magnetic field is changed in a way, that the particle circle orbit remains constant.The accelerating electric field appears according to the Faraday’s law from the changing of the magnetic field.
23 Betatron Constant orbit condition Centrifugal force From Faraday’s law From Newton’s lawIs equal to the Lorentz forceThis 1:2 relation was found in 1928 by Wideröe.
24 Betatron. Weak focusing Betatron oscillations near the reference orbit- field index- orbit stability conditionTransverse oscillations are called betatron oscillations for all accelerators.
25 Betatron. Weak focusing Radial stabilityThe radial force is pointed to the design orbit if
33 RF Resonators Waveguides Maxwell equations in vacuum From follows wave equationsWe separate the periodical time dependance und use the representation (traveling wave)
34 RF Resonators Waveguides For the space field distribution in transverse plane we obtainThe smallest wave number (cut frequency) kcWave propagation in the waveguide is possible only if k>kc.If k<kc then the solution exponentially decays along z.Phase velocity is larger than the light velocity
35 RF Resonators Waveguides Unlike free space plane wave the waves in waveguides have longitudinal componentsTM wavesTE waves
37 RF Resonators Acceleration? waveguide with irises RF resonators The cylindrical waveguide were an ideal accelerator structure, if it were possible to use Ez component of TM wave. However the velocity of the particle is always smaller than the wave phase velocity vph.waveguide with irises(traveling waves)RF resonators(standing waves)
38 RF Resonators Waveguide with irises (traveling wave) Through tuning of phase velocity according to the particle velocity it is possible to obtain, that the bunches synchronously with TM wave fly and obtain the maximal acceleration.waveguide with irisescylindrical waveguide
39 RF ResonatorsAcceleration with standing and traveling waves
40 RF ResonatorsWe separate only the periodic time dependence and take the represantation (standing wave)For the space field distribution we obtain
42 RF Resonators Klystron The electron beam energy is converted in RF energy.
43 RF ResonatorsThe exact resonance frequency could be tuned. The resonator is exited through an inductive chain. The waveguide from klystron is at the end closed in such way, that a standing wave exists with its maximum at distance /4 from the wall.
44 RF Resonators self field of cavity (driven by bunches) the concept of wake fields is used to describe the integrated kick (caused by a source particle, seen by an observer particle)short range wakes describe interaction of particles in same bunch long range wakes describe multi bunch interactionsimportant for FELs: longitudinal single bunch wakes change the energy chirp and interfere with bunch compression
