Title CSR and space charge studies for the CLARA phase 1 beamline
Abstract The installation of Phase 1 of CLARA, the UK’s new FEL test facility, is currently underway at Daresbury Laboratory. When completed, it will be able to deliver 45 MeV electron beams to the pre-existing VELA beamline, which runs parallel to CLARA. Phase 1 consists of a 10 Hz photocathode gun, a 2 m long S-band travelling wave linac, a spectrometer line, and associated optics and diagnostics. A detailed study into the beam dynamics of the lattice is presented, with a focus towards the effects of space charge and coherent synchrotron radiation on the electron bunch. Simulations disagree with predictions from a one-dimensional model of coherent radiation, and this disagreement is believed to be due to a violation of the Derbenev criterion.
