The transverse and longitudinal beam characteristics of the phin photo-injector at Cern

Abstract : The laser driven RF photo-injectors are recent candidates for high-brightness, low-emittance electron sources. One of the main beam dynamics issues for a high brightness electron source is the optimization of beam envelope be- havior in the presence of the space charge force in order to get low emittance. Within the framework of the second Joint Research Activity PHIN of the European CARE pro- gram, a new photo-injector for CTF3 has been designed and installed by collaboration between LAL, CCLRC and CERN. Beam based measurements have been made dur- ing the commissioning runs of the PHIN 2008 and 2009 including measurements of the emittance, using multi-slit technique. The demonstration of the high charge and the stability along the long pulse train are between the goals of this photo-injector study as also being important issues for CTF3 and the CLIC drive beam. In this work the photo-injector will be described and the first beam mea- surement results will be presented and compared with the PARMELA simulations.
