PHIL is a test facility (S-band: 3 GHz, warm technology), which can be used for photo-injector characterization; it provides also a low energy electron beam for multi purpose experiment or calibration (diagnostics, detectors...). It is also an ultra-short e- bunch source (150 fs/100 pC).
The electron beam characteristics are:
- Tunable in charge between 10 pC and 1 nC (depending on photo-cathode),
- Tunable in Energy between 2 and 5 MeV (to be upgraded to 9 MeV soon),
- Tunable in Pulse duration: 5ns to 100 fs (depending on the laser used),
- dE/E = 0.2% for 100pC 3 MeV
- Emittance 5 to 10 mm.mrad
- F =5 Hz
