Photo cathode requirements for the European XFEL

A lifetime of some month with a

QE > 0.5% is required.

This is achieved with Cs2Te Cathodes e.g. at Flash.

Can we go home now?

QE and Lifetime requirements

WSHQE, OCT. 5, 2006


roughly half of the predicted emittance of the XFEL injector is due to the thermal emittance of the cathode

Problem I:

WSHQE, OCT. 5, 2006


Development of the transverse Emittance

  • 1nC charge

  • uniform transverse distribution

  • longitudinal flat-top with 2 ps rise time

  • incl. thermal emittance

WSHQE, OCT. 5, 2006


Slice Emittance at the Injector exit

emittance in longitudinal slices of the bunch

WSHQE, OCT. 5, 2006


Slice Emittance at the Injector exit

w.o. thermal emittance

WSHQE, OCT. 5, 2006


The measured thermal emittance is even higher than expected from simple theoretical predictions (Schottky effect, cathode roughness)

How can we reduce the thermal emittance?

reduce cathode roughness

control the work function

…?

dark current presents a sever operational problem for the XFEL injector

Problem II:

WSHQE, OCT. 5, 2006


Dark Current extrapolation to 60 MV/m

no conditioning effect taken into account

WSHQE, OCT. 5, 2006


A large fraction of the dark current is generated at or near the cathode. Collimation at low energies is very difficult because the dark current has similar properties as the beam

How can we reduce the dark current generation

reduce cathode roughness

reduce number of emitters by better cleaning techniques

…?

Dry Ice Cleaning Principle

WSHQE, OCT. 5, 2006


No field emission was observed up to 90 MV/m on dry ice cleaned Cu samples in field emission scans.

Dry ice cleaning of the gun cavity is in preparation.

Dry Ice Cleaning of the cathode plugs should be tested next.

To monitor the deposition of field emitters during the cathode preparation process a field emission scanning apparatus for the cathodes will be designed and build in collaboration with the University of Wuppertal.
