The PERLE Facility

PERLE is an accelerator system invoking a unique combination of parameters, technology, and design choices. It will provide very high “virtual” beam power – the nominal power of the full-energy beam, after acceleration, and before any energy recovery – through a combination of high energy and moderately high current (a combination of relatively high CW microbunch repetition rate and bunch charge). It has a very large dynamic range, or energy recovery efficiency (the ratio of injection energy to full energy and/or full energy to final energy – after recovery). PERLE thus encounters (and offers opportunity to controllably study) virtually every effect of interest in the next generation of ERL design.
