- SLC positron beams produced by a high energy electron beam, impinging on a high Z target, have initially small transverse size but large divergence, a situation ill matched to the following S-band accelerator. The flux concentrator is an adiabatic matching device placed between the target and this accelerator, which trades divergence versus size. It produces a magnetic field with a sharp rise over less than 5 mm to its peak value, and then falling off adiabatically over 10 cm. It is a 12 turn, 10 cm long copper coil with a cylindrical outside radius of 4 cm and a conical inside radius growing from 3.5 mm to 2.6 cm. The 0.2 mm gaps between the individual windings were manufactured by electric discharge machining out of one copper block. Excitation current and water cooling is provided by a hollow rectangular copper conductor brazed to the outside of the coil (also 12 turns). The pulsed magnetic field has a maximum strength of 58 kG at 16 kA. At the terminals, the coil has an inductance of 0.8 μH. Current shape is a half sinusoidal wave with a bottom width of 5 μs, and the system operates at a repetition rate of 120 Hz. The coil has only one supporting ceramic insulator at the low voltage front end. The flux concentrator has improved the positron yield approximately 3 times and had no failure in operation during several years. 10 refs., 5 figs.
