In the first phase of ongoing collaboration between VECC (India) and TRIUMF (Canada) a 10 MeV superconducting electron linac injector will be installed at VECC. This will constitute a 100 keV DC thermionic gun with grid delivering pulsed electron beam at 650 MHz. Owing to low energy from the gun, a capture cryo-module (CCM) consisting of two β = 1 single cell elliptical cavities (frequency = 1.3 GHz) will be inserted before a 9-cell β = 1 elliptical cavity that will provide acceleration to 10 MeV. The present paper depicts the beam dynamics simulation and optimization of different parameters for the injector with a realistic simulated beam emittance from the electron gun.

  TRIUMF is collaborating with VECC on the design of a 10 MeV injector cryomodule to be used as a front end for a high intensity electron linac. A electron gun and low energy beam transport (LEBT) have been installed in a test area to act as the injector for the cryomodule test. The LEBT includes a wide variety of diagnostics to fully characterize the beam from the gun. A series of beam tests are being conducted during the stage installation. The test configuration details and results of beam tests will be presented.
