Compact Ring for the ThomX-ray Source

Abstract : One advantage of X-ray sources based on Compton Back Scattering (CBS) processes is that such compact machines can produce an intense flux of monochromatic X-rays. CBS results from collisions between laser pulses and relativistic electron bunches. Aiming at high X-ray flux, one possible configuration combining a low emittance linear accelerator with a compact storage ring and a high gain laser cavity has been adopted by the ThomX project. We present here the main ring lattice characteristics in terms of baseline optics, possible other tunings such as low or negative momentum compaction, and orbit correction schemes. In addition, non-linear beam dynamics aspects including fringe field components as well as higher multipole tolerances are presented.
