Introduction about LTECNC
of this work-package are:
Understanding the two-beam technique as a solution for producing
RF power at frequencies beyond those at which high-power klystrons
are presently available.
the gradient limits of NC structures associated with dark current,
RF break-down, surface field and structure geometry.
experience on NC structure engineering.
of the present test facility used for beam manipulation, structure
prototype powering, and equipment tests, and suggestions of
the points, which are common to all NC and LC linear colliders
gathering the efforts on these topics.
The specific topics identified are:
Study of high gradient accelerating structures
on drive beam generation in CTF
on precision alignment
source (in collaboration with JRA on photo injector)
charge of LTECNC is closely linked to the activities in the JRA
PHIN on the photo-injector development as well as on the CLIC
test facility CTF3
