X-band RF Technology for Future Projects
Chris Adolphsen, Arnold Vlieks, Juwen Wang, Sami Tantawi, Tor Raubenheimer
In this colloquium, Chris Adolphsen, Arnold Vlieks, Juwen Wang, Sami Tantawi and Tor Raubenheimer, all SLAC scientists, will review the developments in X-band room-temperature RF technology which have taken place at the laboratory since 2004 when competing superconducting technology at 1300 GHz was selected for the design of the International Linear Collider project. Topics will include a general overview of the field, klystrons, accelerator structures, pulse compression, radio frequency breakdown limits, current and future applications and long-term prospects.
The talk will begin at 4:15 p.m. on Monday, April 5, in Panofsky Auditorium. The colloquium is free and open to all.
