R&D on C-band accelerators

The use of Radio-Frequency C-Band accelerating structures for electron acceleration and production of high quality beams has been recently proposed and adopted in several linac projects all over the world.                                    

High power test results on C-band accelerating structures

Beam energy upgraded from 180 to 250 MeV in SPARC photo-injector facility at INFN LNF with the help of C-Band structures.
