Beam Dynamics Simulations of the Thomx Linac

Abstract : ThomX Compton light source is designed to maximise the average X-ray flux providing a compact and tunable machine which can operate in hospitals or in museums. These constraints impose the choice of a high collision rate which is based on S-band Linac whose energy is 50-70 MeV combined to an electron storage ring. As most of the performances of the electron beam at the interaction point depend on the beam quality at the ring entrance, the linear accelerator must be carefully designed and especially the photo-injector. Simulations have been carried out in order to optimise the emittance for the ring entrance. Indeed, for a bunch charge of 1 nC, space charge effects usually dominate the total beam emittance. The latter can be minimized at the end of the Linac by means of emittance compensation. The best configuration across all the parameters will be presented.
