Abstract

Gamma-Ray-Compton Sources are at the forefront among most attractive radiation sources, due to the variety of their high impact applications in the fields of national security, nuclear waste treatment, nuclear medicine, as well as fundamental studies in nuclear physics. At the same time, these systems pose challenging physics and technology issues. Besides highly demanding laser system performance, a crucial role is played by the electron beam quality in the interaction region. A European proposal is under preparation for the Compton gamma-ray Source of ELI-NP based on the collision between a high quality electron beam and a high power laser. In this work we will describe the lay-out of the RF Linac and the optimized beam dynamics to achieve maximum phase space density at the collision.
