High Brightness Electron Beams group at Helmholtz-Zetrum Berlin


Dr. Sonal Mistry, a scientist from the High Brightness Electron Beams group ( at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), gave an overview of her research areas: Photocathode Research & Development for Electron Accelerators. The focus of her activities is to understand correlations between cathode material, preparation, treatment and electron beam parameters such as transverse emittance, which is linked to the brightness of the beam generated with the SRF photoinjector.

Their goal is to provide high quantum efficiency Cs-K-Sb photocathodes for the operation of bERLinPro and beyond that to understand fatigue effects and fundamental electronic and optical properties in collaboration with Prof. Caterina Cocchi from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The tour included a guided visit of the research facility in Adlershof.
