LCLS Drive Laser Timing Stability Measurements

Department of Energy Review of theLinac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) ProjectBreakout - SC5 Control SystemsAugust 11, 2004Ron Akre

X-

X-band

Lowest Noise Floor Requirement

0.5deg X-Band = 125fS

Structure Fill time = 100nS

Noise floor = -108dBc/Hz @ 11GHz 5MHz BW

-134dBc/Hz @ 476MHz

RMS tolerance budget for <12% rms peak-current jitter or <0.1% rms final e− energy jitter. All tolerances are rms levels and the voltage and phase tolerances per klystron for L2 and L3 are Nk larger, assuming uncorrelated errors, where Nk is the number of klystrons per linac.

The PAD measures phase noise between the reference RF and the high power system. The beam sees 3.5uS of RF from SLED cavity which the klystron fills and is then dumped into the accelerator structure.

Accelerator Water Temperature Effects on SLED Phase[1]

The tuning angle of the SLED cavity goes as:

= tan -1 (2QLT), Where T = L/L = -/

QL= 17000= 10-5 / F Thermal expansion of copper.

=tan -1 (0.34T)Where T is in F.

For small T, (S)= 20T(F)

The relation between the tuning angle and the measured output phase of the klystron

varies with the time after PSK with about the following relation:

/ = 0.35just after PSK (S)= 7T(F)

/ = 0.50800nS after PSK (S)= 10T(F)

/ T~ +8.5 S / F for SLED Cavity

Accelerator Water Temperature Effects on the Accelerator Phase[2]

The phase change of the structure goes as follows:

= fWhere = phase through structure

= Angular frequency

f = Filling time of structure

= f = / x f/ = -L/L = -T = -10-5 T / F for copper

= -10-5 T / F22856MHz0.84S = -0.15 T rad/F = -8.6 T S / F

/ T = -8.6 S / F for Accelerator Structure

Water / Accelerator Temperature Variation is 0.1F rms

through structure is 0.86F rms
