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).
