Design and critical item test program for FCC-ee Injector (FCC-ee Injector Design and Test Stand at PSI) (FCC-ee Injector)
As part of the international FCC-ee study the electron and positron linear accelerators of the injection chain will be designed and optimized including the electron gun(s), the positron production and capture systems, and the positron damping ring. An evaluation and optimization of the accelerator costs and the preparation of an advanced CDR are an integral part of this study.
For the positron production, a concept using superconducting magnet technology and high field RF capture cavities will be studied. A demonstrator using the SwissFEL 6 GeV linac as target driver will validate the concept.
