The 32nd Advanced ICFA Beam Dynamics Workshop on Energy Recovering Linacs

ERL Sponsor Banner

March 19 - 23, 2005
Newport News, Va, USA

Deadline for submitting papers for proceedings has been extended to May 30, 2005.

Energy Recovering Linacs (ERLs) are emerging as a powerful new paradigm of electron accelerators as they hold the promise of delivering high average current beams with efficiency that approaches that of storage rings, while maintaining beam quality characteristics of linacs, as their 6-dimensional phase space is largely determined by electron source properties. Envisioned ERL applications include accelerators for the production of synchrotron radiation, free electron lasers, high-energy electron cooling devices, and electron-ion colliders. The proposed applications require of order 100 mA of average beam current and up to a few GeV of beam energy, while the present state of art is the 9 mA, 90 MeV energy recovering linac FEL at Jefferson Lab. Laboratories at Cornell University, Daresbury and Brookhaven intend to build in the near future ERL prototypes to address scalability questions.

We are organizing an international workshop on Energy Recovering Linacs, "ERL2005," the first of its kind, to address issues related to the generation of high brightness and simultaneously high average current electron beam, and its stability and quality preservation during acceleration and energy recovery. This workshop is sponsored by the ICFA Panel on Beam Dynamics, Jefferson Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Cornell University and Daresbury Laboratory and will be held at Jefferson Laboratory in 2005

The workshop will explore issues related to:

Some of the goals that will guide the workshop include:
