Positron Production and Capture based on Low Energy Electrons for SuperB

Abstract : Providing a high quality and sufficient high current positron beam for the ultra high luminosity B-factory SuperB is a major goal. In this paper a proposition for positrons production and capture scheme based on low energy electrons up to1 GeV is presented. For this technique, several types of flux concentrator used to capture the positrons are being studied. The following accelerating section bringing the positrons up to 280 MeV and the total yield for L-band and S-band type accelerators are given. Also the result of the benchmark between ASTRA and a LAL code based on Geant4 toolkit simulation is discussed.
