Kicker Pulsers

Light sources require the precise ability to deflect electron bunches, be it accelerator storage ring injection/extraction, or deflection into different beamlines of an XFEL.

Kicker Pulsers

As modern light sources enter the fourth generation of light sources, new developments throughout the facility are required. In accelerators, high-voltage kicker pulsers with fast rise and fall times and short pulse duration are needed to both inject and extract single electron bunches while maintaining small emittance.

Based on a specific design requirement, the first units of the Sydor Kicker Pulser were engineered to inject and extract particles with the goal of minimum beam loss. To ensure injected particles of the correct energies are on the correct path to the desired end station, it was critical that only the targeted pulse be influenced. The key to this precision has been the ultra-fast rise and fall times, timed to fall between adjacent bunches.

Each unit’s output can be optimized based on the unique requirements provided by each facility. The Kicker Pulser can be customized to meet the desired pulse shape, amplitude, width, and frequency based on the accelerator’s requirements.
