Energy recovery linacEnergy recovery linac: a new class of accelerators in active developmentEssentially removes the average current limitation typical to linacs (i.e. Pbeam >> Pwall plug)Average currents 10’s to 100’s of mA can be efficiently accelerated ( in addition to de-accelerated)7/20/2009I.V. Bazarov, III-V Photocathodes, ERL094Cathode figures of merit7/20/2009I.V. Bazarov, III-V Photocathodes, ERL095QE in addition to photon excitation wavelengthE.g. 1W of 775 nm (Er-fiber /2) 6.2 mA/% 520 nm (Yb-fiber /2) 4.2 mA/% 266 nm (Nd-glass /4) 2.1 mA/%Transversely cold (thermalized) electron distributionDirectly sets the solid angle of the emitted electrons; an upper limit on achievable beam brightnessFigures of merit (contd.)7/20/2009I.V.

Bazarov, III-V Photocathodes, ERL099Cs was found to play a larger role as long as NEA instead: 1) b in addition to bending through donor surface states, in addition to 2) dipole surface layer from polarized Cs adatomsCs-induced donor-like surface states contribute their electrons to the bulkHole depleted region (negatively charged acceptors) lead to b in addition to bending regionionized Cs bb region

Bazarov, III-V Photocathodes, ERL0911(1) electron-electron scattering: typical of metals, large energy loss per collision(2) electron-phonon scattering: slowly depletes excessive energy of excited electron (LO phonons in GaAs ~ 35 meV) “Magic window”: in semiconductors, one needs excess KE > Egap as long as e–/e– scattering. Thus, electrons excited with Evac < KE < EVBM + 2Egap have excellent chances of escape(1)(2)Electron transport processes7/20/2009I.V.
