A program is under way at the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator facility, in collaboration with the Euclid Techlabs and Northern Illinois University (NIU), to develop a GeV/m scale photocathode gun, with the ultimate goal of demonstrating a high-brightness photoinjector beamline. The novel X-band photoemission gun (Xgun) is powered by high-power, short RF pulses, 9-ns (FWHM), which, in turn, are generated by the AWA drive beam. In a previous proof-of-principle experiment, an unprecedented 400~MV/m gradient on the photocathode surface* was demonstrated. In the current version of the experiment, we added a linac to the beamline to increase the total energy and gain experience tuning the beamline. In this paper, we report on the very first result of emittance measurement as well as several other beam parameters. This preliminary investigation has identified several factors to be improved on in order to achieve one of the ultimate goals; low emittance.

  Dielectric-lined waveguides have been extensively studied to potentially support high-gradient acceleration in beam-driven dielectric wakefield acceleration (DWFA) and for beam manipulations. In this paper, we investigate the wakefield generated by a relativistic bunch passing through a dielectric waveguide with different transverse sections. We specifically consider the case of a structure consisting of two dielectric slabs, along with rectangular and square structures. Numerical simulations performed with the fine-difference time-domain of the WarpX program reveal some interesting features of the transverse wake and a possible experiment at the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA) is proposed.
