Recent upgrades to the CEBAF Polarized Source include a fiber-based seed laser, capable of producing pulses with frequency centered at 499 MHz. Combined with the existing three-beam Chopper, an aliasing, or beat frequency technique is used to produce long time intervals between individual electron microbunches (tens of nanoseconds) by merely varying the nominal 499 MHz drive laser frequency by <20%. This RF Laser modulator uses a divider and heterodyne scheme to maintain coherence with the accelerator Master Oscillator, while providing delay resolution in increments of 2ns. Laser repetition frequencies producing bunch repetition rates between 20 MHz and 100 MHz are demonstrated, resulting in time delays between 50 and 10 ns, respectively. Also, possible uses for such a beam are discussed as well as intended development. Authored by Jefferson Science Associates, LLC under U. S. DOE Contract No. DE-AC05-06OR23177

We have developed a digital process that emulates an analog oscillator and ultimately a self excited loop (SEL) for field control. The SEL, in its analog form, has been used for many years for accelerating cavity field control. In essence the SEL uses the cavity as a resonant circuit – much like a resonant ?tank? circuit is used to build an oscillator. An oscillating resonant circuit can be forced to oscillate at different, but close, frequencies to resonance by applying a phase shift in the feedback path. This allows the circuit to be phased locked to a master reference, which is crucial for multiple cavity accelerators. For phase and amplitude control the SEL must be forced to the master reference frequency, and feedback provided for in both dimensions. The novelty of this design is in the way digital signal processing (DSP) is structured to emulate an analog system. While the digital signal processing elements are not new, to our knowledge this is the first time that the digital SEL concept has been designed and demonstrated. This paper reports on the progress of the design and implementation of the digital SEL for field control of superconducting accelerating cavities.

The new digital LLRF system for the CEBAF 12GeV accelerator will perform a variety of tasks, beyond field control.* In this paper we present the superconducting cavity resonance control system designed to minimize RF power during gradient ramp and to minimize RF power during steady state operation. Based on the calculated detuning angle, which represents the difference between reference and cavity resonance frequency, the cavity length will be adjusted with a mechanical tuner. The tuner has two mechanical driving devices, a stepper motor and a piezo-tuner, to yield a combination of coarse and fine control. Although LLRF piezo processing speed can achieve 10 kHz bandwidth, only 10 Hz speed is needed for 12 GeV upgrade. There will be a number of additional functions within the LLRF system; heater controls to maintain cryomodule's heat load balance, ceramic window temperature monitoring, waveguide vacuum interlocks, ARC detector interlock and quench detection. The additional functions will be divided between the digital board, incorporating an Altera FPGA and an embedded EPICS IOC. This paper will also address hardware evolution and test results performed with different SC cavities.

Experiments on the study of fundamental quark-gluon structure of nucleons require an electron-light ion collider of a center of mass energy from 20 to 65 GeV at luminosity level of 1035 cm-2s-1 with both beams polarized. A CEBAF accelerator based ring-ring collider of 7 GeV electrons/positrons and 150 GeV light ions is envisioned as a possible next step after the 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade. The developed ring-ring scheme takes advantage of the existing polarized continuous electron beam and SRF linac, the green-field design of the collider rings and the ion accelerator complex with electron cooling. We report results of our design studies of the ring-ring version of an electron-light ion collider of the required luminosity.
