  A Plane-Wave-Transformer (PWT), standing wave linac operating at S-band frequency (2.9979 GHz) is being developed at NSRRC. This structure offers the advantages of high efficiency, compactness, fabrication simplicity and cost. The PWT prototype at NSRRC consists of three cells with two half-cells at the ends, separated by a set of four flat disks suspended and cooled by four water tubes inside a large cylindrical tank. To fully understand its physical properties, numerical modeling of the PWT prototype has been carried out by using the 2-D code SUPERFISH and 3-D code MAFIA. In this paper, we describe the principle properties of this structure, the electric parameters obtained from numerical simulations, and heat dissipation calculation. The mechanical design for prototype linac is also reported.

  The NSRRC high brightness photoinjector for light source R&D is a 2998 MHz split configuration. Our goal is to produce 1 nC bunch charge from a photo-cathode rf gun with normalized emittance of 1 mm-mrad or less. However, limited by the available power from our klystron, previous studies showed that our linac has to be equipped with focusing solenoid to help emittance control during acceleration. In order to omit the bulky focusing solenoid from the booster linac system, we considered to use two high gradient (~26 MV/m) PWT standing-wave structures to accelerate the beam previous to the linac. Studies showed that this configuration can keep the emittance as low as 1 mm-mrad while also decreasing the energy spread to half of its initial amount. The only drawback is the growth of final beam radius, which can be compensated by using a setting of quadrupole magnets.
