Simplified staging in a two beam accelerator (TBA) has been accomplished at the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA) facility. This layout consists of a drive beamline and witness beamline operating synchronously. The drive photoinjector linac produces a 70 MeV drive bunch train of eight electron bunches (charge per bunch between 5-40 nC) that pass through decelerating structures in each TBA stage. The witness linac produces an 8 MeV witness bunch that passes through the accelerating structures in each TBA stage. Recent effort has been focused on improving the uniformity of the UV laser pulses that generate the bunch trains. Current work at the AWA is focused on the transition from simplified staging to full staging. A kicker will be designed and installed to direct bunch trains to one TBA stage only. Preliminary calculations and simulation results are presented.
