RF Power Test of the Rebuncher for Saraf-Linac

Abstract : Three normal conducting rebunchers will be installed at the Medium Energy Beam Transport (MEBT) of the SARAF-LINAC phase II [saraf]. The MEBT line is designed to follow a 1.3 MeV/u RFQ, is about 5 m long, and contains three 176 MHz rebunchers providing a field integral of 10⁵ kV. CEA is in charge of the design and fabrication of the Cu plated stainless steel, 3-gap rebuncher. The high power tests and RF conditioning have been successfully performed at the CEA Saclay on the first cavity. A solid state power amplifier, which has been developed by SNRC and has been used for the RF tests. The cavity has shown a good performance according to calculations, regarding the dissipated power, peak temperatures and coupling factor. RF conditioning was started with a duty cycle of 1\% and increased gradually until continuous wave (CW), which is the nominal working mode in SARAF-LINAC.
