Accelerators & radiation
Taking accelerator technology to the next level
Euclid’s cutting-edge solutions for the accelerator community are an outgrowth of the company’s partnerships with national labs including BNL, Fermilab and Argonne, through research funded by SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) grants from DOE in addition to other government agencies.
The conduction-cooled SRF Photogun
Euclid’s conduction cooled Nb3Sn SRF photogun requires only 2W of RF power and one cryocooler, making the beamline compact and affordable. Our innovative conduction cooling approach uses a single cryocooler with no liquid helium or nitrogen baths or auxiliary cooling technologies.
The ultra-compact accelerator
Our novel MeV range electron source has two critical features for any space-limited applications: an Ultra-nano Crystal Diamond (UNCD) Field Emission Cathode for high quality, 10 mA pulse current; and a Dielectric Loaded Accelerator (DLA). By using a high permittivity dielectric, the size of the DLA is comparable to the thickness of a pencil. In addition to being compact, the entire system also weighs significantly less than a comparable traditional accelerator.
All components fit inside an easy-to-transport carrying case.
Orange –flux concentration region
Purple – fringe field reducer
Red – water cooled coil
The UEM/UED flux concentrator and ultra-compact lens
Our design reduces the weight and size by 100 times versus a bulky Tesla-level DC objective lens. We use a flux concentrated-based pulsed solenoid with two slots to eliminate the dipole fields, ferrite to reduce the fringe fields and a high stability power supply and pulser to reach 10ppm field stability.
L-BAND UHV RF window
Euclid has provided L-band RF windows using advanced ceramics technology for Argonne National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory, among others.
- UHV (10 -10 Torr)
- Thin film TiN coating to reduce multipacting
- Optimized fabrication process to minimize cost
