LINAC-X band, II. ERL) NuPECC, Bergen, 11-12june 2010
ELI-NP Gamma Source (I) PHASE-I ( ) similar withe the MEGa-ray source under development at LLNL but extendedfrom 250 MeV to 600 MeV.
ELI-NP Gamma Source (II) PHASE-II ( ) Upgrade to 100-mA ERL can be made by adding superconducting ERL cavities under development. After upgrade to 100-mA ERL, the electron accelerator can be operated with parameters: 80 pC, 130 MHz for the high-flux mode and 8 pC, 1.3 GHz for the high-brilliance mode. The flux and brilliance will be enhanced by 2 orders of magnitude. One can get a gamma flux of of 5x10 15 ph/sec and a bandwidth of 4x10 -5.
