Title Emittance and Optics Measurements on the Versatile Electron Linear Accelerator at Daresbury Laboratory
Abstract The Versatile Electron Linear Accelerator (VELA) is a facility designed to provide a high quality electron beam for accelerator systems development, as well as industrial and scientific applications. Currently, the RF gun can deliver short (of order a few ps) bunches with charge in excess of 250 pC at up to 5.0 MeV/c beam momentum. Measurement of the beam emittance and optics in the section immediately following the gun is a key step in tuning both the gun and the downstream beamlines for optimum beam quality. We report the results of measurements (taking account of coupling and space charge) indicating normalised emittances of order 0.5 μm at low bunch charge.
