To reduce the linac energy required for an FEL radiating at a given wavelength, and hence its size, a smaller undulator period with sufficient field strength is needed. Previous work from our group successfully demonstrated a microwave undulator at 11.424GHz, using a corrugated cylindrical waveguide operating at the HE11 modes. We have designed a mm-wave undulator cavity at 91.392GHz* with an equivalent undulator period of 1.75 mm. This undulator requires 1.4 MW for sub microsecond pulses for an equivalent K value of 0.1. In this work we present the mechanical design and fabrication of this 91.392 GHz RF Undulator, as well as preliminary cold test data.

We are modifying the X-Band Test Accelerator at SLAC to operate as an Extreme Ultra Violet (EUV) light source*. The existing photo electron gun will be replaced by a thermionic X-Band injector which utilizes RF bunch compression. The beam is accelerated up to 129 MeV using an X-Band traveling wave structure followed by a novel high shunt impedance standing wave structure. The beam then goes through a mm-wave undulator with a period of 1.75 mm, producing EUV radiation around 13.5 nm. The undulator is powered by a W-Band decelerator structure, which extracts the RF power from the electron beam. In this work we present the mechanical design and fabrication of the 91.392 GHz decelerator structure, as well as structural characterization of its cavities using SEM and 3D microscopy.
