Description

Welcome to the Americas Workshop on Linear Colliders 2017. AWLC17 is the next in a series of regional linear collider workshops held around the world. The purpose of the workshop is the continued development of the physics case, and the advancement of detector and accelerator designs for a high energy linear electron-positron collider. The workshop will feature meetings of the global R&D collaborations on detector and accelerator technology.

The major plenary session, with updates on the ILC and CLIC projects, will be held on Thursday afternoon.   Thursday morning, there will be a special session on detector R&D for the LHC high-luminosity era.

The home page of the meeting is found at the web site: https://portal.slac.stanford.edu/sites/conf_public/AWLC17/ .

We are eager to receive proposals for parallel session talks on detector technology, accelerator technology, and new physics ideas within and beyond the Standard Model. Please send your abstract to the conveners of the appropriate working group.

        Test Stands for Breakdown Studies on RF-Driven and Beam-Driven Structures 25m

        The experimental progress on constructing two high-gradient warm structure test stands is presented here: (1) Two Frequency Test Stand which provides S-band and C-band phased-synchronized high power microwave; and (2) Beam Driven Accelerator Test Stand which provides X-band high charge long bunch train. Theory and simulations predict that metallic microwave accelerating structures, including RF guns, should operate at high acceleration gradients with reduced breakdown rates and/or with improved beam quality if their cavities operate simultaneously in two harmonically-related modes, rather than only in the fundamental mode. Current main objectives of our efforts are to carry out experiments to confirm this prediction in warm RF structure, including (1) RF breakdown test of Bimodal RF-driven cavity structures; (2) Bimodal RF-driven electron gun injector as a near-term application; and (3) Bimodal beam-driven detuned cavity structures which possibly lead to a bimodal two-beam accelerator.
