  For high luminosity electron-positron colliders, intense positron beam production is one of the key issues. Flux Concentrator (FC) is a pulsed solenoid that can generate high magnetic field of several Tesla and is often used for focusing positrons emerged from a production target. It works as an optical matching device in a positron capture section. With this device, high capture efficiency is achieved. In this paper, we will introduce a new design of a FC for the SuperKEKB positron source. The advantages of the new design are: 1. the aperture could be doubled of the previous design, 2. the transverse components are only 1/10 of the previous design, 3. maintain the same high peak longitudinal field. The new FC modeling has been done in CST Studio and we will report the results of new FC field evaluation. In order to calculate the positron yield and capture efficiency, a tracking simulation to the end of capture section has also been carried out, which is also included in this paper.

  Four types of CLIC prototype TW accelerator structures were high-gradient tested at Nextef, KEK, up to 100 MV/m level and the fifth is under test now. The ramping speed of each processing and the resultant breakdown rate were compared among them. From this comparison, it was found that the ramping speed of the structures with opening ports for HOM damping with magnetic coupling became slow and the resultant breakdown rate became high. It was also found that that with lower surface magnetic field showed faster ramping in processing and lower breakdown rate. This indicates the role of the magnetic field on vacuum breakdowns in copper structure at the region of several tens to 100 MV/m. In this paper, we review the processing stage and the high gradient performance of these structures trying to discuss the relevant parameters, surface electric field, surface magnetic field and other parameters such as Sc, “complex pointing vector”, to the performance difference.

  We have been developing a Kanthal (Al-Cr-Fe)-coated collinear load as a possible candidate of the L-band acc. structure of SuperKEKB positron capture system. In order to achieve the higher capture efficiency comparing to that of KEKB, the upgrade of the e+ production and capture section is required. The system consists of a W target with a flux concentrator followed by acc. structures surrounded by solenoids. The increase of the e+ bunch charge and the reduction of satellite bunches are the main issues for this system. The frequency choice of L-band is based on the larger transverse and longitudinal acceptances than those of the S-band one. The load is preferable to compose the system with compact magnets and to minimize the dip in the solenoid field. The design of the load was reported in previous work*. We understand that the Kanthal-coated cell should be confirmed in high power to confirm the feasibility at our design field of 10 MV/m level. We are making a test cavity which consists of 3 cells and one of them is composed of Kanthal-coated disks to lower the intrinsic Q value from 20000 to the order of 1000. The cavity production and the experimental result will be reported.
