The Injection System of the INFN-SuperB Factory Project: Preliminary Design

Abstract : The ultra high luminosity B-factory (SuperB) project of INFN requires a high performance and reliable injection system, providing electrons at 4 GeV and positrons at 7 GeV, to fulfill the very tight requirements of the collider. Due to the short beam lifetime, continuous injection of electrons and positrons in both HER and LER rings is necessary to keep the average luminosity at a high level. Polarized electrons are required for experiments and must be delivered by the injection system, due to the beam lifetime shorter than the polarization build-up: they will be produced by means of a SLAC-SLC polarized gun. One or two 1 GeV damping rings are used to reduce e+ and e- emittances. Two schemes for positron production are under study, one with electron-positron conversion at low energy (<1 Gev), the second at 6 GeV with a recirculation line to bring the positrons back to the damping ring. Acceleration through the Linac is provided by a S-band RF system made of traveling wave, room temperature accelerating structures. An option to use the C-band technology is also presented.
