Paper Abstract

Recent analysis of the Two-Beam Accelerator (TBA) by Wurtele, Whittum and Sessler has shown that the transfer cavities, both in the relativistic klystron version (RK/TBA) and the standing-wave free-electron laser version (SWFEL/TBA), can be characterized by a simple coupling impedance. In the two cases the radiation process is very similar: only the modes that couple to the electron beam are different. As a result, computer programs that are able to handle realistic cavities (with beam ports and coupling ports, etc.) can be employed to evaluate the performance of either version of the TBA. We have employed the code URMEL2 to study the proper coupling impedance for a number of realistic cavities for a SWFEL.
