TI - Design of a W-Band Corrugated Waveguide for Structure Wakefield Acceleration J2 - Proc. of NAPAC2022, Albuquerque, NM, USA, 07-12 August 2022 CY - Albuquerque, NM, USA T2 - International Particle Accelerator Conference T3 - 5 LA - english AB - Current research on structure wakefield acceleration aims to develop radio-frequency structures that can produce high gradients, with work in the sub-terahertz regime being particularly interesting because of the potential to create more compact and economical accelerators. Metallic corrugated waveguides at sub-terahertz frequencies are one such structure. We have designed a W-band corrugated waveguide for a collinear wakefield acceleration experiment at the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA). Using the CST Studio Suite, we have optimized the structure for the maximum achievable gradient in the wakefield from a nominal AWA electron bunch at 65 MeV. Simulation results from different solvers of CST were benchmarked with each other, with analytical models, and with another simulation code, ECHO. We are investigating the mechanical design, suitable fabrication technologies, and the possibility to apply advanced bunch shaping techniques to improve the structure performance.
