Title Extended ALICE Injector
Abstract Results of designing of the extended ALICE injector with the aim to include a special dedicated diagnostic line are presented. The purpose of the diagnostic line is to characterise the low energy beam, before it enters the booster, as much as possible. A key component of the ALICE is the high brightness injector. The ALICE injector consists of a DC photocathode gun generating ~ 80 pC electron bunches at 350 keV. These bunches are then matched into a booster cavity which accelerates them to an energy of 8.35 MeV. In order to do this, three solenoids and a single-cell buncher cavity are used, together with the off-crest of the first booster cavity where the beam is still far from being relativistic. The performance of the injector has been studied using the particle tracking code ASTRA.
