Beam Physics Seminar
The RaceTrack Microtron which is under construction in our Institute
is sponsored by "World Physics Technologies". The accelerator will produce
electron beams with energies up to 35 MeV, ~5 mm.mrad normalized
emittance, bunch charge in excess of 150 pC, and rates up to 150 Hz.
Its 5 MeV injector consists of a 1.6 MeV Radio-Frequency laser stimulated
gun and a 3.4 MeV linac. The injector is ready and under operation now
whereas recirculator is under commissioning. To measure a length of the
output electron bunches the experimental program of investigation of
coherent transition radiation spectrum has been started in addition to
standard optical transition radiation technique which is in use during
last few years. Coherent transition radiation have been observed. The
results of measurements of polar pattern of transition radiation will be
presented together with description of experimental setup. Construction
of spectrometer in millimeter range of wavelength will be discussed.
