Measuring the bunch frequency multiplication at CTF3
2010 (English)Conference paper, Poster (Refereed)
The CTF3 facility is being built and commissioned by an international collaboration in order to test the feasibility of the proposed CLIC drive beam generation scheme. Central to this scheme is the use of RF deflectors to inject bunches into a Delay Loop and a Combiner Ring, in order to transform the initial bunch spacing of 1.5 GHz from the linac to a final bunch spacing of 12 GHz. The optimization procedure relies on several steps. The active length of each ring is carefully adjusted to within a few millimeters accuracy using a two‐period undulator. The transverse optics of the machine must be set-up in a way so as to ensure the beam isochronicity. Diagnostics based on optical streak cameras and RF power measurements have been designed to measure the longitudinal behaviour of the beam during the combination. This paper presents their performance and highlights recent measurements.
