CLIC X-band technologies

CLIC X-band technologies

The objective of the X-band activity is to develop the high-gradient, high-power X-band rf system for the CLIC main linacs. The current focus is on constructing and operating 100 MV/m prototype accelerating structures and establishing a significant high-power testing capability through klystron-based test stands. Additional activities include studies of the fundamental physics of high-gradients, the use of high-gradient technology in other applications such as XFELs and medical linacs and the design of high-efficiency and high frequency klystrons.
