  The Electron Beam Test Facility (EBTF) at Daresbury Laboratory will deliver low energy (5/6 MeV) short bunches (~40 fs) to a number of industrial experimental stations and for scientific research. In order to measure the longitudinal profile of the bunch an S-band transverse deflecting cavity will be inserted into the beamline. A transverse kick of around 5 MV is required hence a 9 cell design has been chosen. The design of the transverse deflecting cavity has been influence by the competing demands of high RF efficiency and minimising the unwanted transverse kick at the entrance and exit of the cavity which cause the electrons to be displaced while traversing the cavity. This has led to a shortened end cell structure design to minimise the kick applied at the entrance and exit to the cavity. In order to minimise the impact of the input coupler a dummy waveguide has been placed on the opposing side of the cavity to minimise the monopole component of the RF fields in the coupling cell. The coupler is located at the central cell of the cavity to avoid exciting the nearby modes. Tracking of the beam is performed in GPT including space charge, due to the low energy of the electrons.

  Recent UK government funding has facilitated the implementation of a unique accelerator test facility which can provide enabling infrastructures targeted for the development and testing of novel and compact accelerator technologies, specifically through partnership with industry and aimed at addressing applications for medicine, health, security, energy and industrial processing. The infrastructure provision on the Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus (DSIC) will permit research into areas of accelerator technologies which have the potential to revolutionise the cost, compactness and efficiency of such systems. The main element of the infrastructure will be a high performance and flexible electron beam injector facility, feeding customised state-of-the-art testing enclosures and associated support infrastructure. The facility operating parameters and implementation status will be described, along with primary areas of commercialised technology development opportunities.
