High-gradient X-band RF technology for CLIC and beyond
April 19, 2017
The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) project is exploring the possibility of constructing a multi-TeV linear electron-positron collider for high-energy frontier physics studies beyond the LHC era. The CLIC concept is based on high-gradient normal-conducting accelerating structures operating at X-band (12 GHz) frequency. We present the status of development, prototyping and testing of structures for operating at gradients of 100 MV/m and beyond. We report on high-power tests of these structures using the “XBOX” test facilities at CERN and summarize experience with operation at high-gradients. We give an overview of developments for application of the X-band technology to more compact accelerators for use e.g. as X-ray FELs and in medicine.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
