Photoinjector Guns

RadiaBeam offers the 1.6 cell S-band BNL/SLAC/UCLA type photoinjector, along with a fully positionable mount for the gun and field-profile tunable solenoid as a standard system.

Photoinjector Guns

The RadiaBeam Technologies RF photoinjector employs the latest technological innovations. Significant improvements in the highly successful BNL/SLAC/UCLA 1.6 cell RF gun design have been implemented in the past three years, building upon the experience of LCLS. Options include laser ports, dummy feeds, removable cathodes, RF probes and matched solenoids.

Custom Photoinjector Gun

RadiaBeam scientists and engineers employ cutting edge simulation tools to design and optimize the geometry of any injector. From L-band to X-band, and from 1/2-cell to integrated hybrid multi-cell structures we can offer competitive prices for state of the art injection needs.

S-Band 1.6 Cell Photoinjector Gun

The RadiaBeam Technologies RF photoinjector employs the latest technological innovations in this device, licensed from UCLA. Significant improvements in the highly successful BNL/SLAC/UCLA 1.6 cell RF gun design have been implemented in the past two years.

These improvements, which are not yet available through any other commercial vendor, anticipate many of the design changes that will be employed on the LCLS X-ray FEL photoinjector.

The ultimate beam brightness is anticipated to increase by a factor of 3 to 4 over the older version of the device.

Hybrid Photoinjector Gun

The Hybrid Photoinjector is a unique combination of a photoinjector and accelerating section into a single unit. Unlike other multi-cell photoinjectors, the Hybrid Photoinjector uses a standing wave photoinjector and traveling wave accelerating section fed by a common-dual feed input. The compact package, simplified RF system, and improved longitudinal bunch properties make the hybrid photoinjector an attractive option.

 

The RadiaBeam Hybrid Photoinjector combines a 1.55 cell SW photoinjector section and an axially-coupled, multi-cell traveling wave accelerating section into a single brazed structure. The TW cells are matched to the beam’s zero-crossing and act as a velocity buncher; with no drift space between the gun and acceleration, there is no bunch lengthening.

 

Transverse emittance is maintained with a symmetric dual-feed coupler, Z-coupling cells, and racetrack irises.
