Abstract

Abstract The main travelling wave linacs of the compact linear collider (CLIC) operate at a frequency of 11.9942 GHz with a phase advance per cell of 2 π/3. In order to minimise the overall footprint of the accelerator, large accelerating gradients are sought. The present baseline design for the main linacs of CLIC demands an average electric field of 100 MV/m. To achieve this in practical cavities entails the dual challenges of minimising the potential for electrical breakdown and ensuring the beam excited wakefield is sufficiently suppressed. We present a design to meet both of these conditions, together with a description of the structure, CLIC_DDS_A, expressively designed to experimentally test the ability of the structure to cope with high powers.
