RF-Gun cavity for high charge electron generation Takuya Natsui
Introduction of Quasi-Traveling Wave Side Couple RF gun. Cavity design Beam study Plan Contents
Why we need advanced RF gun? Normal RF gun does not have focusing E-field. 5 nC beam charge has much higher space charge. We need advanced RF gun. Normal RF gun 5 nC beam tracking simulation. Beam size will be too large for our use.
Close nose make narrow acceleration field Long drift space causes the beam defocus Annular coupling cavities makes narrow accelerating gap 6 The close nose makes focus field. Side coupled cavity can be made the close nose. But, long drift space is problem. One solution is to use tow standing wave cavity.
Quasi traveling wave side coupled cavities Normal side coupled cavities
8 Avoid the E-field concentration Obtain strong focus field Prevent emittance growth ○ ☓ Prevent emittance growth by using a curved shape cathode 1 st Cavity Design (cathode cell) We need strong focus field. But strong focus field may cause emittance growth. We must avoid the electric field concentration.

These are divided into two standing wave structure of 3 and 4 side coupled cavities respectively.
