Abstract

A high-power, high-brightness electron injector suitable for use with an energy recovery linac (ERL) x-ray light ~ source or a free electron laser (FEL) has been built at Cornell University. The system was designed to produce a train of 77 pC bunches at a 1300 MHz repetition rate, which is equivalent to 100 niA average current, at energies between 5 and 15 MeV. The initial beam requirements are a normalized emittance below 2 μm at J full bunch charge with a bunch length of <2-3 ps mis. The = operation of this injector and the progress towards T. meeting these challenging goals will be discussed.
