ICFA Beam Dynamics Mini-Workshop on
Deflecting/Crabbing Cavity Applications in Accelerators
Deflecting/crabbing mode cavities have been proposed, designed and implemented for a number of accelerator applications such as beam luminosity increase for “head-on” collisions in high energy colliders, emittance exchange techniques and particlebeam diagnostic.
In recent years a number of high-energy synchrotron light sources have started serious R&D programs to utilize superconducting deflecting cavities for the production of short x-ray pulses based on Zholents’ proposed scheme. Following the success of KEKB, CERN is pursuing the use of crab cavities for the LHC with a potentially significant luminosity increase.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers in various accelerator communities and discuss advances in the defecting/crabbing
RF cavity for accelerator applications.
Topics of interest are:
- High energy colliders (LHC, KEK-B, ILC, CLIC …)
- Generation of short x-ray pulses in synchrotron light sources
- Beam manipulations, emittance exchange and diagnostics
- Deflecting cavity design optimization
- Novel deflecting cavity design
