A spin-off of ILC technology – already

| 4 April 2013 On 15 March, scientists working on the Quantum Beam Technology Program at KEK’s superconducting RF test facility (STF) confirmed the successful generation of X-rays using Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS) with superconducting radiofrequency (SCRF) acceleration technology. This is the world’s first successful implementation of ICS X-ray sources with SCRF technology. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

Test facility at KEK becomes an accelerator

| 26 April 2012 KEK's superconducting radiofrequency test facility, called STF, has graduated. No longer a test facility, it is now a fully fledged accelerator. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,

Extracting 1-millisecond beam

| 29 March 2012 At KEK's superconducting RF test facility, better known as STF, scientists are conducting beam tests of their photocathode RF gun towards beam operation of the accelerator for the Quantum Beam Project. On 22 March, scientists succeeded in the extraction of a 1-millisecond beam for a 162.5-megahertz bunch train. Pictured here is a signal from the beam position monitor (blue) and a laser gate signal (violet). Read more about the Quantum Beam Project in a future issue of ILC NewsLine.
