RF systems for the betatron-node scheme experiment at LBNL

By Steven M. Lidia, Stefano De Santis and Timothy Houck


Two-beam accelerators based upon relativistic klystrons (RK's) have been proposed as power sources for future generation electron-positron linear colliders. These drivers are known to suffer from several transverse beam-breakup (BBU) instabilities. A program to study a particular technique (the 'betatron node scheme') of ameliorating the high frequency BBU is under way at LBL. Central to this study are the pillbox RF cavities and RF beam position monitors (BPM's) employed. This paper discusses the design, fabrication, and testing of the RF components. Details of the signal processing and analysis will be presented
