New design of HOM coupler using coaxial-like rounded waveguide

Sawamura, Masaru; Hajima, Ryoichi; Nagai, Ryoji; Nishimori, Nobuyuki

It is important to damp higher-order modes (HOMs) of superconducting accelerators especially for energy-recovery linacs of high current operation. Though various types of HOM couplers, beam line HOM dampers and waveguide HOM couplers have been developed, there are some problems such as inner conductor heating of output connector for HOM couplers and low packing factor for beam line HOM dampers. We propose new design of HOM coupler. This coupler consists of a coaxial line coupled with a cavity or a beam pipe and a rounded waveguide which cuts off the accelerating mode. The rounded waveguide is similar to a coaxial line and the inner conductor and outer conductor are connected with a plate which corresponds to waveguide side wall. This enables the inner connector cooled down efficiently through the outer conductor. The calculation results of MW-STUDIO will be presented.
