Abstract:
The International Linear Collider will be a high-precision machine to study the next energy frontier in particle physics. At the TeV energy scale, the ILC is expected to deliver luminosities in excess of 1034 cni" 2s_1. In order to achieve this, beam conditions must be monitored throughout the machine. Measurment of the beam emittance is essential to ensuring that the high luminosity can be provided at the interaction point. At the de sign beam sizes in the ILC beam delivery system, the Laserwire provides a non-invasive real-time method of measuring the emittance by the method of inverse Compton scattering. The prototype Laserwire at the PETRA stor age ring has produced consistent results with measured beam sizes of below 100 /nn. The Energy Recovery Linac Prototype (ERLP) is a technology testbed for the 4th Generation Light Source (4GLS). Inverse Compton scattering can be used in the ERLP as a proof of concept for a proposed 4GLS upgrade, and to produce soft X-rays for condensed matter experiments. The design constraints for the main running mode of the ERLP differ from those required for inverse Compton scattering. Suitable modifications to the optical lattice have been developed under the constraint that no new magnetic structures may be introduced, and the resulting photon distributions are described.
