High Brightness ERL Injector Development and ERL Planning at Cornell

Charles Sinclair
Cornell University

Cornell is developing a 100 mA average current high brightness electron injector for an ERL-based synchrotron light source. The source employs a high voltage DC photoemission electron gun and a five cavity SRF cryomodule to reach 5 to 15 MeV beam energy. Demonstration of very small emittances is a key issue. At the present time, the gun is assembled to a diagnostic beam line and high power dump, a 1300 MHz laser is in development, and the first SRF cavity has been through a vertical test. Unique RF power couplers, HOM loads, and a high power klystron are in advanced stages of development. In parallel with the injector development, planning for a full scale ERL light source is underway. The current project status and plans will be reviewed in this seminar.
