Abstract

The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) has begun the design and assembly of the NPS Free-Electron Laser (NPS-FEL). As part of this effort, the original DC gunbased injector system from the Stanford Superconducting Accelerator has been moved to NPS and is being refurbished and upgraded to operate as a photoinjector. Design work has begun on a new, SRF, quarter-wave resonator based cavity that can serve as either an energy booster or photocathode gun. The overall NPS-FEL design parameters are for 40- MeV beam energy, 1 nC bunch charge, and 1 mA average beam current, built as an energy-recovery linac in its final configuration [1]. As we move towards this goal, the injector system will be incrementally upgraded to add photocathode capability, have a higher final beam energy, and improve the beam brightness, to meet the needs of the overall experimental program.
