AB  - This poster will report on the status of the new high gradient C-band accelerator project at LANL. Modern applications such as X-ray sources require accelerators with optimized cost of construction and operation, naturally calling for high-gradient acceleration. Our goal is to use a multi-disciplinary approach that includes accelerator design, molecular dynamics simulations, and advanced manufacturing to develop high gradient, high efficiency RF structures for both compact and facility-size accelerator systems. We considered common operation frequencies for accelerators and identified C-band as the optimal frequency band for high gradient operations based on achievable gradients and means to control wakefields. We are putting together a high gradient C-band test facility that includes a 50 MW Toshiba klystron and cryo-coolers for operating copper NCRF accelerator cavities at long pulse duration. We plan to conduct high gradient testing of the optimized RF structures made of copper and novel copper alloys. LANL modeling capabilities will be used to systematically study the formation of breakdown precursors at high fields to develop basic theoretical understanding of the breakdown.
