  • Strahldynamik-Simulationen für Photo-CATCH

    Beam dynamic simulations for Photo-CATCH

    Bachelor Thesis

    Project: Photo-CATCH

    Description: The Photo-CATCH test source will be extended by a second electron gun featuring a cryogenic design. The beamline has to be adapted accordingly. The focus of this work lies on conducting beam dynamics simulations for the adaption and optimization of the current beamline in regard of the planned design.

    Techniques: Simulation witch ASTRA, Beamdynamics

  • Laser Compton Rückstreu-Quelle am S-DALINAC

    PhD thesis

    A high-power laser system is to be integrated in interaction with the superconducting Darmstadt electron linear accelerator S-DALINAC operated at the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the TU Darmstadt as a source of quasi-monochromatic X-ray radiation based on so-called laser Compton backscattering.

    The aim is to advance the development of LCB sources in the context of linear accelerators with energy recovery and also to establish a possibility for non-destructive beam diagnostics at S-DALINAC for accelerator development and nuclear physics experiments.

  • Untersuchung von Kathodenpräparationsverfahren für die polarisierte Quelle

    Investigations of Cathode preparation methods for spin polarized source

    Master Thesis

    Project: Photo-Catch, SPIN

    Description: Zum Betrieb der Quelle polarisierter Elektronen müssen die GaAs-Kathoden gereinigt und mit einer dünnen CsO-Schicht versehen werden. Man kann hierzu verschiedene Strategien anwenden. Ziel der Arbeit ist eine systematische Untersuchung des aktuellen Reinigungs- und Aktivierungsverfahrens und die Analyse der Auswirkungen auf Quanteneffizienz, Lebensdauer und eventuell Polarisationsgrad der Kathode.
