|MOPOW016||Status of Design and Development of Delhi Light Source at IUAC, Delhi||748|
Funding: The project is supported jointly by Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS) and IUAC
The demand for the photon beams for basic research is growing in India. To address the requirements, a project to develop a compact Light Source based on the principle of Free Electron Laser has been initiated at the Inter University Accelerator Centre (IUAC). In the first phase of the project, a normal conducting RF gun will be used to produce electron beam of energy ~ 8 MeV by using copper photocathode and subsequently by Cs2Te photocathode. A high power fiber laser with short pulse length is planned to be used to produce the pre-bunched electron beam by splitting the single laser pulse in to 16 pulses ("comb beam"). The electron beam will be injected in to a compact, variable gap undulator magnet to produce the THz radiation whose frequency can be tuned by varying the undulator field strength and the time separation of the comb beam. In the second and third phases of the project, superconducting RF gun and superconducting accelerating structure will be used to increase the energy of the electron beam up to ~ 40 MeV which will be used to produce IR radiation by using long undulator magnets and to produce X-rays by colliding the electron beam with another high power laser beam.
