Locations of bunch compressors in ILC
  • BCs locates between e- (e+) damping rings and main linacs, and
  • make bunch length reduce from 6 mm rms to 0.15 mm rms.

1st stage ILC : 500 GeV

2nd stage ILC : 1 TeV

- extension of main linac

- moving of SR and BC

why we need bunch compressors
Why we need bunch compressors
  • Beams in damping rings has bunch length of 6 mm rms.

- Such beams with long bunch length tend to reduce effects of

beam instabilities in damping rings.

- Thus, beams are compressed after the damping rings.

  • Main linac and IP in ILC require very short beams:

- to prevent large energy spread in the linac due to the curvature of the rf.

- to reduce the disruption parameter ( ~ sz) :

(ratio of bunch length to strength of mutual focusing between colliding beams)

  • Thus, bunches between DRs and main linacs are shortened.

- Required bunch length in ILC is 0.15 mm rms.

main issues in bunch compressors
Main issues in bunch compressors
  • How can we produce such a beam with short bunch length?
  • How can we keep low emittance (ex/ey= 8mm / 20nm) and high charge (~3.2 nC) of the e- and e+ beams in bunch compression?
  • How large is the effects of incoherent and coherent synchrotron radiation in bunch compression?
how to do bunch compression
How to do bunch compression
  • Beam compression can be achieved:

(1) by introducing an energy-position correlation along the bunch with

an RF section at zero-crossing of voltage

(2) and passing beam through a region where path length isenergy dependent

: this is generated by bending magnets to create dispersive regions.





lower energy trajectory

Head (delay)

center energy trajectory

higher energy trajectory

  • To compress a bunch longitudinally, trajectory in dispersive region must be
  • shorter for tail of the bunch than it is for the head.
consideration factors in bunch compressor design
Consideration factors in bunch compressor design
  • The compressor must reduce bunch from damping ring to appropriate size with acceptable emittance growth.
  • The system may perform a 90 degree longitudinal phase space rotation so that damping ring extracted phase errors do not translate into linac phase errors which can produce large final beam energy deviations.
  • The system should include tuning elements for corrections.
  • The compressor should be as short and error tolerant as possible.

different types of bunch compressor1
Different types of bunch compressor
  • Chicane : Simplest type with a 4-bending magnets for bunch


  • Double chicane : Second chicane is weaker to compress higher charge density in order to minimize emittance growth due to synchrotron radiation.
  • Wiggler type : This type can be used when a large R56 is required, as in linear collider. It is also possible to locate quadrupole magnets between dipoles where dispersion passes through zero, allowing continuous focusing across the long systems.
  • Arc type : R56 can be adjusted by varying betatron phase advance per cell. The systems introduce large beamline geometry and need many well aligned components.

  • A path length difference for particles with a relative energy deviationd is given by:
  • Dz = hd = R56d + T566 d2 + U5666d3……
  • h : longitudinal dispersion
  • d : relative energy deviation (= DE/E)
  • R56 : linear longitudinal dispersion
  • (leading term for bunch compression)
  • T566 : second - order longitudinal dispersion
  • U5666 : third - order longitudinal dispersion
longitudinal particle motion in bunch compressor
Longitudinal particle motion in bunch compressor
  • Longitudinal coordinates

z : longitudinal position of a particle with respect to bunch center

  • Positive z means that particle is ahead of reference particle (z=0).
  • d : relative energy deviation
  • When a beam passes through a RF cavity on the zero crossing
  • of the voltage (i.e. without acceleration, frf=  p/2)

krf = 2p frf/c

  • When reference particle crosses at some frf,

reference energy of the beam is changed from Eo to E1.

For frf=  p/2, R66=1, the transformation matrix is sympletic,

which means that longitudinal emittance is a conserved quantitiy.


A simple case of4-bending magnet chicane

  • Zeuthen Chicane : a benchmark layout used for CSR calculation comparisons at 2002 ICFA beam dynamics workshop











  • Bend magnet length : LB = 0.5m
  • Drift length B1-B2 and B3-B4(projected) : DL = 5 m
  • Drift length B2-B3 : DLc = 1 m
  • Bend radius : r = 10.3 m
  • Effective total chicane length : (LT-DLc) = 12 m
  • Bending angle : qo = 2.77 deg Bunch charge : q = 1nC
  • Momentum compaction : R56 = -25 mm Electron energy : E = 5 GeV
  • 2nd order momentum compaction : T566 = 38 mm Initial bunch length : 0.2 mm
  • Total projected length of chicane : LT = 13 m Final bunch length : 0.02 mm

Relations among R56, T566 and U5666 in Chicane





If a particle at reference energy is bent by qo, a particle with relative energy error d is bent by q = qo/ (1+d).

Path length from first to final bending magnets is


Relations among R56, T566 and U5666 in Chicane

Difference in path length due to relative energy error is

By performing a Taylor expansion about d = 0

For large d, d2 and d3 terms may cause non-linear deformations of the

phase space during compression.

momentum compaction
Momentum compaction
  • The momentum compaction R56 of a chicane made up of rectangular bend magnets is negative (for bunch head at z<0).
  • The required R56 is determined from the desired compression, energy spread and rf phase.

First-order path length dependence is

  • From the conservation of longitudinal emittance,

final bunch lengthis

rf phase angle
RF phase angle
  • Energy-position correlation from an rf section is
  • In general case that beam passes through RF away zero-

crossing of voltage, that is R66 = 1, there is some damping

(or antidamping) of the longitudinal phase space,

associated with acceleration (or deceleration).

synchrotron radiation
Synchrotron Radiation
  • Incoherent synchrotron radiation (ISR) is the result of individual electrons that randomly emit photons.

Radiation power P ~ N

(N : number of electrons in a bunch)

  • Coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) is produced when a group of electrons collectively emit photons in phase. This can occur when bunch length is shorter than radiation wavelength.

Radiation power P ~ N2

  • ISR and CSR may increase beam emittance in bunch compressors with shorter bunch length than the damping rings.
coherent synchrotron radiation
Coherent synchrotron radiation
  • Opposite to the well known collective effects where the wake-fields produced by head particles act on the particles behind, radiation fields generated at tail overtake the head of the bunch when bunch moves along a curved trajectory.
  • CSR longitudinal wake function is

coherent synchrotron radiation1
Coherent synchrotron radiation
  • CSR-induced relative energy spread per dipole for a Gaussian bunch is
  • This is valid for a dipole magnet where radiation shielding of a conducting vacuum chamber is not significant, that is, for a full vacuum chamber height h which satisfies

h  (psz√R)2/3  hc.

  • Typically the value of h required to shield CSR effects (to cutoff low frequency components of the radiated field) is too small to allow an adequate beam aperture

(for R  2.5 m, h « 10 mm will shield a 190 mm bunch.)

  • With very small apertures, resistive wakefields can also generate emittance dilution.

Incoherent Synchrotron Radiation

When an electron emits a photon of energy u, the change in the betatron action

is given by


  • Transverse emittance growth is
  • Increase of energy spread is
  • The increase in energy spread is given by:
  • Beamenergy loss is


bunch compressors for ilc
Bunch compressors for ILC
  • Two-stages of bunch compression were adopted to achieve σz = 0.15 mm.
  • Compared to single-stage BC, two-stage system provides reduced emittance growth.
  • The two-stage BC is used : (1) to limit the maximum energy spread in the beam (2) to get large transverse tolerances (3) to reduce coherent synchrotron radiation

that is produced
