PostDoc: Repetition-rate limits of X band accelerator technology

The goal of this PostDoc project is to push forward the boundaries of novel X-band-based accelerators for driving future light sources (FELs) with specific emphasis to generating highest repetition rates.
Accelerator structures driven in the X-band (12 GHz) hold the potential of setting new standards for accelerator based compact sources of high energy photons from the EUV to beyond hard X rays. Many user demands on such sources require high repetition rates higher than present maximal operational rates of ~200 Hz. Can repetition rates of warm X-band accelerators be pushed to 1 kHz or even further? That is the central question of the project.
Beam dynamics simulations will form the initial basis of assessing repetition rate limits. Two types of experimental tests are foreseen to benchmark the simulations: 1 - Measurements of the electron bunch quality of high-rep-rate electron sources which will be performed at the TU/e (Eindhoven). 2 – Determinations of limits on accelerator structures and high-rep-rate RF power schemes which can be established at the test stands at CERN.

About the group

The project is embedded in the collaboration CompactLight (www.compactlight.eu), which receives funding from the European’s Horizon2020 research and innovation programme. The PostDoc project is a joint project of the Dutch partners of CompactLight, the Univerity of Technology Eindhoven (TU/e) and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU). Within the project the latter is represented by the Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography (ARCNL), which is a public-private partnership between the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the VU University Amsterdam (VU) and the semiconductor equipment manufacturer ASML.
