Title VELA Photoinjector Cavity RF Investigations
Abstract One of two ALPHA-X photocathode gun cavities, designed and fabricated at the Laboratoire de l'Accélérateur Linéaire, has been in operation on the VELA electron accelerator at Daresbury Laboratory since first beam in April 2013. In this time the maximum beam momentum recorded is 5.06 MeV/c. An investigation of the cavity has been performed with the aim of reconciling the expected momentum of over 6 MeV/c with the measured momentum. RF and beam simulation results are presented along with low power RF measurements of the cavity. One source of momentum loss, the flatness of the cathode face, is identified and rectified.
