The Baseline Positron Production and Capture Scheme for CLIC

Abstract : The CLIC study considers the hybrid source using channeling as the baseline for unpolarised positron production. The hybrid source uses a few GeV electron beam impinging on a crystal tungsten target. With the tungsten crystal oriented on its < 111 > axis it results an intense, relatively low energy photon beam due mainly to channeling radiation. Those photons are then impinging on an amorphous tungsten target producing positrons by e+e- pair creation. The downstream capture section is based on an adiabatic matching device and a 2 GHz pre-injector linac. The resulting studies are presented here.
