Tech Notes

  • WF Calibration -- 5/4/18 Calibration of the UITF Wien Filter (WF) by adjusting the E-Field and B-Field to determine the velocity of the electron beam
  • Spring 2018 QE vs. Charge & Fall 2016 QE vs. Charge -- 5/24/18 Plots of QE vs. Charge data from the CEBAF injector. The Spring 2018 plot corresponds to when the vertical WF was at 50 degrees and the horizontal WF was off. The Fall 2016 plot is the opposite with the horizontal WF at 50 degrees and the vertical WF was off.
  • Magnetic field in front of photogun idea -- 5/25/18 An idea that I had that may solve the problem of ion back-bombardment due to ion creation downstream of the anode.
  • Derivation of QE Formula -- 6/1/18 Derivation of the formula for photocathode QE based on electron current, laser power, and wavelength
  • Magnetic Mirror Derivation - 9/19/18 Derived formulas for the criteria for ions to become trapped between two solenoids.
  • BPM analysis of electron beam - 9/20/18 Derivation and plots involving the analysis of an electron beam using a beam position monitor (BPM). One can detect and identify ions in the beam based on their characteristic oscillation frequency. Derivation follows from Alex Chao's Fast Ion Instability lecture notes.

July 2018 CEBAF Charge Lifetime Measurements

  • QE vs. Charge -- Plot of QE vs Charge between 10:13:00 and 15:12:00 on 7/11/18
  • Pickoff vs Inline -- Plot of pickoff power (to the photocathode) vs. inline power (before power meter) to determine power correction factor

Ion Bombardment of Solids Notes

Gun Voltage vs. Distance

RGA Spectra and Ionization Cross Sections

  • RGA Spectrum After 2 Days -- RGA Spectrum for gun chamber taken on 5/21/18 after prepping for 2 days, analyzed using gnuplot on 6/11/18. Each peak was fit using a gaussian function in order to determine the maximum and standard deviation of each peak.
  • Ionization Cross Sections V1 -- 6/14/18, Updated on 6/15/18, Analysis of the RGA Spectrum "After 2 Days" (see below), a sample calculation for the ionization cross section of hydrogen gas, and a plot of ionization cross section vs. beam energy (electron kinetic energy).
  • Ionization Cross Sections V2 -- 6/19/18 Updated document above to include section on numerical calculation of ionization rates.
  • Ionization Cross Sections V3 -- 6/22/18 Updated document above to include tables of calculated values for the ion production rates of the gas species using normalized partial pressures.
  • Ion Production Rate vs. Beam Energy -- 6/25/18 Formula derivation and plot of the ionization rate of gas species found in the "After 2 Days" RGA spectrum as a function of beam energy (gun voltage).
  • Ion Production Rate vs. Beam Energy V2 -- 8/27/18 Updated document above. Included a section on normalizing IPR to beam current. Also changed both IPR vs. beam energy plots to log-log so that the effect of ionization cross section on IPR is clearly seen.


  • References -- List of references in bibliography format. Updated on 9/4/18
