Abstract

Combined use of thermionic RF gun and alpha (α-) magnet seems to be very much effective for production of sub-picosecond bunch length in a compact linac system [1]. In this bunch compression scheme, the α-magnet plays a significant role for controlling particle distribution in the longitudinal phase space. However space charge effects as well as wakefields in the α-magnet have not been well studied. We discuss significant distortion of the particle distribution in both the longitudinal and the transverse phase spaces, which are coupled in a-magnet, by showing numerical simulations employing finite difference time domain (FDTD) method to solve time-dependent Maxwell's equations [2].
