We present the numerical optimization, using adjoint techniques, of Flat-to-Round (FTR) transformers operating in the strong self-field limit. FTRs transform an unmagnetized beam that has a high aspect ratio, elliptical spatial cross section, to a round beam in a solenoidal magnetic field. In its simplest form the flat to round conversion is accomplished with a triplet of quadrupoles, and a solenoid. FTR transformers have multiple applications in beam physics research, including manipulating electron beams to cool co-propagating hadron beams. Parameters that can be varied to optimize the FTR conversion are the positions and strengths of the four magnet elements, including the orientations and axial profiles of the quadrupoles and the axial profile and strength of the solenoid’s magnetic field. The adjoint method we employ [1] allows for optimization of the lattice with a minimum computational effort including self-fields. The present model is based on a moment description of the beam. However, the generalization to a particle description will be presented. The optimized designs presented here will be tested in experiments under construction at the University of Maryland.

We present our experimental design and low power test results of a structure for the proof-of-principle demonstration of fast increase of the first harmonic current content in a bunched electron beam, using the technique of electrostatic potential depression (EPD). A primarily bunched electron beam from an inductive output tube (IOT) at 710 MHz first enters an idler cavity, where the longitudinal slope of the beam energy distribution is reversed. The beam then transits through an EPD section implemented by a short beam pipe with a negative high voltage bias, inside which the rate of increase of the first harmonic current is significantly enhanced. An output cavity measures the harmonic current developed inside the beam downstream of the EPD section. Low power test results of the idler and the output cavities agree with the theoretical design.
