In this talk we are presenting the most recent results from the commissioning of unique Coherent Electron Cooling system, which is using an FEL amplifier to facilitate cooling of hadrons by an electron beam. We present achieved results as well as changes we encountered in the process.

A 15 MeV CW SRF accelerator had been commissioned at Brookhaven National Laboratory to test the coherent electron cooling concept. The accelerator consists of an SRF 113-MHz photoemission gun, two 500 MHz bunching cavities and a 704-MHz 5-cell SRF linac. In this paper we describe our experience with this system with focus on unusual phenomena, such as multipacting in the SRF gun. We also discuss issues of wakefields in the CeC accelerator.

In this paper, we present results of our studies in amplification of density modulation induced by co-propagating ions in the FEL section of a Coherent Electron Cooling system, as well its interaction with hadrons. We present a set of requirements for electron beam parameters to satisfy for necessary amplification of the density modulation, while preventing loss of the phase information and saturation.

Coherent Electron Cooling (CeC) is a novel cooling technique based on amplification of interaction between hadrons and electron by an FEL. If proven, this CeC could bring a revolution in hadron and electron-hadron colliders. A dedicated CeC proof-of-principle experiment is under way at RHIC collider (BNL) using a sophisticated SRF accelerator for generating and accelerating electron beam. This paper is dedicated to studies of beam dynamics in the CeC accelerator and specifically to emittance preservation in its ballistic compressions section. Two 500-MHz RF cavities are used for generating the necessary energy chirp leading in 1.56-MeV, 0.5-nsec-long electron bunched to compress them to 25-psec duration downstream. During the commissioning of the CeC accelerator we noticed that beam emittance can be strongly degraded when electron beam passes these 500 MHz RF cavities off-axis. We used a full 3D PIC code Wrap to simulate effect of the off-axis beam propagation through these

  Coherent electron Cooling (CeC) is a proposed advanced beam cooling method that has the potential of reducing the ion beam emittance in significantly shorter amount of time compared to existing cooling methods. A high-gain FEL, composed of three permanent magnet helical wigglers, is acting as an amplifier of the ion's signals picked up by electron beam in CeC. A self-consistent simulation which takes the space and possible phase shifts between wigglers into account is crucial in determining the performance of the FEL. The authors developed an algorithm based on the well-used GENESIS code to properly treat the propagation of particles and radiations in between wigglers and predicted the FEL performance with different beamline layouts. The authors will present their simulation setup and results and provide hardware requirements for future operations and research at CeC.

In this paper we report on extremely good performance of 113 MHz SRF CW gun. This gun is a part of the system built to test coherent electron cooling concept and was aimed to generate trains of 78 kHz pulses with large 1 nC to 5 nC charge per bunch. While it was not built for attaining record low emittances, the machine can achieve very low normalized emittances ~ 0.3 mm mrad with 0.5 nC charge per bunch using CsK2Sb photocathode. In addition to excellent performance, this gun provides for very long lifetime of these high QE photocathodes, with a typical using time of 2 months.

In this paper we present the description and results of the magnetic measurements and tuning of helical undulators for the Coherent electron Cooling system (CeC). The FEL section of the CeC comprises three 2.5-m long undulators separated by 40-cm drift sections, where BPMs and phase-adjusting 3-pole wigglers are located. We present design, tuning techniques and achieved parameters of this system.
