Title Measuring the bunch frequency multiplication at CTF3
Abstract The CLIC Test Facility 3 (CTF3) is being built and commissioned by an international collaboration to test the feasibility of the proposed Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) drive beam generation scheme. Central to this scheme is the use of RF deflectors to inject bunches into a delay loop and a combiner ring, in order to transform the initial bunch frequency of 1.5 GHz from the linac to a final bunch frequency of 12 GHz. The optimization procedure relies on several steps. The active length of each ring is carefully adjusted to within less than millimeter accuracy using a wiggler magnet. The transverse optics of the machine must be set up in a way to ensure beam isochronicity. Diagnostics based on optical Streak camera and RF power measurements have been designed to measure the longitudinal behavior of the beam during the combination. This paper presents their performance and recent measurements.
