  4. High Power S-Band Vacuum Load

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 10d

    S-Band vacuum loads at the SLAC linac are encountering operational problems, now that they have to operate under the stringent requirements of the LCLS: 50 MW peak power, 6 kW average power, and extremely-tight phase stability for the linac. Failure mechanisms have been studied which suggest an RF surface breakdown of the 200 um Kanthal layer. We propose a novel solution which incorporates mode co ...
