Title Status of the Photo Injector Test Facility at DESY, Zeuthen Site
Abstract The PITZ facility is established for the commissioning and testing of electron sources for FELs like FLASH and the European XFEL. The facility has been upgraded during the period from summer 2007 to summer 2008 to extend its capability to produce and characterize low emittance electron beams. The upgraded setup mainly includes a photocathode L-band RF gun with solenoid magnets for space charge compensation, a post acceleration booster cavity and several diagnostic systems. The diagnostic systems consist of charge and beam profile monitors, emittance measurement systems and spectrometers with related diagnostics in dispersive arms after the gun and the booster cavities. The RF gunwas dry-ice cleaned and operated with an accelerating gradient of 60MV/m at the cathode. A new photocathode laser system with broader spectral bandwidth was installed for optimizing the temporal distribution of the laser pulses regarding to electron beam properties. In this contribution, the PITZ facility setup in the years 2008/2009 will be presented. Experimental results from this setup surpassed the electron beam quality requirements for the photoinjector source of the European XFEL.
