Design of a 4.6-Cell RF Gun for the PHIL accelerator at LAL

Abstract : A photo-injector with 4.6-cell and resonate frequency of 2.998 GHz has been designed and studied to replace the 2.5-cell RF gun + booster association. The cavity iris shape and dimensions were simulated systematically to optimize the shunt impedance. In this study, electron beam reaches to 9.7 MeV with a moderate peak accelerat-ing gradient of 80 MV/m. Considering a beam charge of 1 nC/bunch, average transverse emittance of ~ 5.9 πmm mrad and energy spread of ~ 0.8% can be obtained at the exit of the gun. The RF input power is only 10.2 MW due to the high shunt impedance. Asymmetry of the electric field due to the coupling port has also been studied using 3D codes for RF and beam dynamics calculations. We will present the RF design and beam calculations results.
