Characterization of the first SRF electron beam source at the Naval Postgraduate School
MetadataShow full item record
In June 2011, the Naval Postgraduate school (NPS) received the 500 MHz Mark I quarter-wave superconducting RF (SRF) electron beam source and, among other firsts, completed the first cool down and characterization of an SRF beam source at a US Naval facility. The Mark I has a photocathode with adjustable position and uses a unique cascaded RF coupler design. As part of an on-going advanced electron source development project, the NPS Beam Physics Laboratory (BPL) team continues characterization of the Mark I cavity at various cathode stalk, coupler, and probe positions. Methods and experimentation used to measure the cavity Q and β, as well as characteristic results, with respect to coupler, cathode stalk, and probe positions are presented.
