Abstract

The SPARC Project is starting the commissioning of its photo-injector. RF gun, RF sources, RF network and control, power supplies, emittance meter, beam diagnostics and control to measure the RF gun beam have been installed. The photocathode drive laser has been characterized in terms of pulse shape and quality. We will report also about first tests made on RF gun and on the emittance meter device. Additional R&D on X-band and S-band structures for velocity bunching are in progress, as well as studies on new photocathode materials. We will also discuss studies on solenoid field defects, beam based alignments and exotic electron bunch production via blow-out of short laser pulses.
