PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS

Abstract:

The production of intense high-quality positrons for R&D in high-energy physics colliders and other applications is achieved using GeV-energy electrons impinging on a hybrid tungsten target. The positrons emerge from the target with a large momentum spread and at non-relativistic energies, and they have to be accelerated rapidly in order to be transported to the next stages of the accelerator. The CLIC positron source consists of a hybrid target, an adiabatic matching device and a capture Linac. The parameters of these devices influence strongly the final useable positron yield.
In the tracking simulations, a ...
