Title Simulations of the ALICE ERL
Abstract ALICE is a low-energy Energy Recovery Linac operated at Daresbury Laboratory in Cheshire, UK. The ALICE injector is based around a 350 kV DC photo-cathode electron gun. With an operating voltage of 325 keV, electron dynamics in the ALICE injector are space-charge dominated and highly non-linear, and this complicates simulations of the beam dynamics in this region. With an intermediate energy of 6.5 MeV, and a final ring energy of 27.5 MeV, the space-charge effects in the rest of the machine can also not be ignored. In this paper we summarise some of the work that has been performed to understand and optimise the simulations of the ALICE ERL, in several different operating modes, and using several different modelling codes.
