Abstract:

A long pulse, high brightness 45 MeV linear accelerator has been constructed for use as a driver for free electron laser and beam wave experiments, and as the first section of a 1 GeV injector for a high brightness electron storage ring. This contract has led to 1. demonstration of the highest gradient and longest pulse length yet achieved in a 3 meter S-band SLAC-type travelling wave accelerator section and 2. demonstration of the high current and high current density attainable through the use of a strong microwave field to replace the dc electric field usually used in linac electron guns.
