  RadiaBeam Technologies reports on the RF design, fabrication and high-power tests of a ultra-high gradient S-Band accelerating structure (HGS) operating in the pi-mode at 2.856 GHz. The compact HGS structure offers a drop-in replacement for conventional S-Band linacs in research and industrial applications such as drivers for compact light sources, medical and security systems. The electromagnetic design (optimization of the cell shape in order to maximize RF efficiency and minimize surface fields at very high accelerating gradients) has been carried out with the codes HFSS and SuperFish while the thermal analysis has been performed by using the code ANSYS. The high-power conditioning was carried out at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).

  Radiabeam Technologies, in collaboration with UCLA, presents the development of a high gradient normal conducting radio frequency (NCRF) 1.6 cell photoinjector system for the Sincrotrone Trieste facility. Designed to operate with a 120MV/m accelerating gradient, this single feed, fat lipped racetrack coupler design is modeled after the LCLS photoinjector with a novel demountable cathode which permits cost effective cathode exchange. Full overview of the project to date and installation at Sincrotrone Trieste will be discussed along with basic, design, engineering and manufacturing.
