Abstract
A novel, compact S-band LINAC has been designed and is currently under construction at UCLA. It is expected to deliver high brightness, 200 A, 20 MeV electron pulses, less than 4 ps in duration from a device that is about 1 meter long. It comprises; (1) a laser photocathode driven gun that produces 4.5 MeV electron bunches from a 1 1/2 cell cavity operating in the (pi) -mode and (2) an accelerating structure known as a plane wave transformer (PWT) designed by Swenson. The design considerations of the machine and initial operating experience of the gun are discussed. The linac will be used for free electron laser, advanced accelerator research and beam-plasma experiments.
