Dr Walter Wuensch (CERN)


The high-gradient linac technology developed by the CLIC study is now being adopted by a wide range of accelerator applications. These range from electron linac applications such as X-ray free electron lasers (XFELs), Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS) sources, beam manipulating components like energy spread linearizers and transverse deflectors through to medical accelerators as well as proton applications like high-gradient low-beta accelerating cavities and large acceptance radio frequency quadrupoles (RFQs). Examples of these applications are presented. The adoption is an important example of technology transfer and is providing a greatly expanded community developing high-gradient technology further.
