Title Results from ALICE (ERLP) DC Photoinjector Gun Commissioning
Abstract The ALICE (formerly ERLP) DC photoinjector gun has been commissioned and the beam characteristics measured. The gun has demonstrated the nominal ALICE parameters of 350keV electron energy, 80pC bunch charge and ~130ps bunch length (at 10% level). The bunch parameters were measured at different bunch charges from 1pC up to 80pC. Special attention was given to measurements of the beam transverse emittance (using a movable slit), correlated and uncorrelated energy spread (using an energy spectrometer) and bunch length (using a transverse RF kicker) at each bunch charge. The effect of the 1.3GHz RF buncher on the bunch length was also investigated. The experimental results are then compared with ASTRA simulations.
