Two Beam Test Stand Experiments in the CTF3 Facility
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The CLEX building in the CTF3 facility is the placewhere essential experiments are performed to validate theTwo-Beam Acceleration scheme upon which the CLICproject relies. The Drive Beam enters the CLEX hall afterbeing recombined in the Delay loop and the CombinerRing in intense beam trains of 24 A – 120 MeV lasting140 ns and bunched at 12 GHz, although other beamparameters are also accessible. This beam is thendecelerated in dedicated structures installed in the TestBeam Line (TBL) and in the Two-Beam Test Stand(TBTS) aimed at delivering bursts of 12 GHz RF power.In the TBTS this power is used to generate a highaccelerating gradient of 100 MV/m in specially designedaccelerating structures. To assess the performances ofthese structures a probe beam is used, produced by asecond Linac. We report here various experimentsconducted in the TBTS making use of the versatility ofthe probe beam and of dedicated diagnostics.
