clic drive beam rf system issues
CLIC Drive Beam RF System – issues:
  • Reminder of the main issues for the Drive Beam RF system:
    • Very large total power (≈23 GW peak, 170 MW average)

What power source? Optimum size of individual power source?

This was addressed in the last ACE.

    • Phase stability (jitter <50 fs)
    • Overall efficiency!
    • Cost!
  • Summary from last ACE: Trends:
    • MBK 10 MW ... 20 MW
      • 10 MW available today (X-FEL, ILC)
      • “smaller” klystrons make reliability and serviceability easier

... remained to be done:

    • Make group delay of acc. structure = length of delay loop
    • Redesign structures to optimize for beam dynamics requirements

... not much new, but converging for CDR:

what s new about the klystrons
What’s new about the klystrons?

Questionnaire prepared and sent to klystron manufacturers (CPI, Thales, L3, E2V, Toshiba, Istok, Chinese industry) asking about the feasibility of a 20 MW klystron (4 different scenarios)

So far, only CPI replied:

  • Reasonable to start from ILC/X-FEL klystrons
  • 20 MW, 150 μs, 50 Hz, 65 % ... feasible (≈ 8 beams),
  • design & proto estimate: 2 M$ and 2 years,
  • series cost estimate 1.1 M$ (55 k$/MW),
  • delivery schedule: month 12, 14, 16, ... ARO
  • They tend towards slightly higher voltage (150 kV?)

This sounds reasonable for the conceptual design.

... not for CDR, but for later other possibilities should be considered:

iot s a second look
IOT’s – a second look:

According to CPI, IOT’s would be a natural choice for highest efficiencies; CPI’s claims:

  • IOT VHP-8330 reached 930 kW @ 700 MHz.
  • up to 1.5 MW at 1 GHz should be possible,
  • > 80 % efficiency at this power level are possible,
  • IOT’s would be cheaper/MW (!)
  • typical DC voltage range: 35 kV,
  • no modulator necessary → pulses via RF drive!

ηKlystron ηModulator ≈ 60 % would become ηIOT ηpower distribution ≈ 70 %; this would reduce wall plug power quite significantly!

  • no saturation → power regulation with feedback possible.
  • gain ≈ 22 dB (needs 10 kW drive for 1.5 MW)

Disadvantages: less gain, no operational experience, more complex power distribution!

conclusion power sources
Conclusion power sources
  • For the CDR, MBK’s derived from ILC/X-FEL with 15 to 20 MW are realistic.
  • Some of the features of IOT’s make them appear interesting – a more detailed analysis is necessary.
  • At the same time we’re trying to analyze (fellow to start in September 2010) higher η klystrons.

  • SICA structures were successfully redesigned and re-optimized for 1 GHz (thanks to Rolf Wegner!).
  • Design includes:
    • Optimum aperture – to be finalized with BD simulations
    • Optimum RF efficiency
    • Optimum group delay (≈ 245 ns)
    • New idea for dipole mode damping verified
    • Moderate outer Ø < 300 mm
    • The coupler design is ongoing.

phase stability measurement at ctf3
Phase stability measurement at CTF3

AlexeyDubrovskiy analyzed phase- and amplitude stability of 4 CTF3 klystrons. Example given here: MKS03

  • Result:
  • W/o special measures, the pulse-to-pulse phase jitter is 0.1 ... 0.15°.
  • This is “only” a factor 5 ... 8 away from our specification of 0.02°!
  • Reminder: with feed-forward (see below), we’re probably about OK!
  • This is very encouraging!

The phase monitor
  • Requirement: low impedance, 20 fs resolution
  • Status: Task 9.5 in the Work-package NCLinac of the EuCARD FP7 project (in collaboration with PSI and INFN/LNF), making good progress.
  • Double-mirror concept developed (F. Marcellini)

  • We need an LO with « 23 fs integrated phase jitter.
  • The beam path provides some noise filtering below 3 kHz
  • The system here seems to come in around ~ 4 fs

optic-atomic clock

divide and conquer

Multiple stations with individual master oscillators and mutual links form a chain

Laser frequency combs locked to a precise quantum transition, can be absolutely stable.

Position one at each major point, distribute sync signal locally as before.

Use long links to keep each clock locked to each other (slow corrections).

Distribution of frequencies with 10-14 precision has been demonstrated.

conclusions phase stabilisation
Conclusions phase stabilisation:
  • Phase stability measurements at CTF3 gave encouraging values.
  • A feed-forward, measuring the phase jitter in the drive beam and correcting for it, can significantly relax the requirements (factor 10).
  • The low-impedance, high resolution phase monitor is addressed in FP7/EuCARD and makes correct progress.
  • A stable, globally distributed reference can demagnify the dependence on the main beam jitter further by a factor 7.
  • For global distribution of ultra-stable phase references, strong synergy with the X-FEL community exists.
