The Center for Bright Beams, A National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center

Chris Pierce's B Exam (Internal)

Fri, 10/07/2022, 2:30pm - 3:30pm

Title: Towards High Brightness from Photocathodes

Description: Bright electron beams, as well as the technologies they power, are among the most powerful probes of matter at atomic length and time scales. Many of these systems and techniques, however, are limited in performance by the achievable brightness of modern particle accelerators. In this talk, Chris will first show in simulation that better photocathode technologies are a viable path towards improving beam brightness. Then, he will present new research on a diverse set of topics related to these electron source improvements. Future directions of study in this field will be discussed last.
