An External Synchronization of PHIL to a High Power Femtosecond Laser

Abstract : The synchronization accuracy between laser systems and RF wave is a crucial ingredient for the successful operation of any particle accelerator based on photo-emission. In the case of ultra-short highly charged electron accelerator, the beam is highly sensitive to timing jitter. Thus, a high level of synchronization accuracy is needed. In this paper, we describe the current synchronization system of PHIL (electron accelerator at LAL), and a new approach to synchronize PHIL externally with a high power femtosecond laser (LASERIX) . The main goal of the experience is to design and study a compact way to obtain ultra-short electron bunches (few tens to few hundreds of femtoseconds) under high charge levels (hundred pC). We continue with a description of different modifications made on PHIL timing master to adapt it to external synchronization.
