This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Coupler Design for the LCLS Injector S-Band Structures ' The LCLS injector is required to provide a 1-nC, 10-ps bunch with a normalized rms transverse projected emittance of less than 1 micron. The LCLS beam is generated and accelerated in a 1.6-cell S-band RF gun at 120 MV/m up to 6 MeV. The gun is followed by two SLAC 3-m S-band accelerator structures to further accelerate the beam to 135 MeV which moves the beam out of the space-charge dominated regime. In the SLAC S-band structures, the RF power feed is through a single coupling-hole (single-feed coupler) which results in a field asymmetry. The time dependent multipole fields in the coupler induce a transverse kick along the bunch and cause the emittance to increase above the LCLS specification. To meet the stringent emittance requirements for the injector, the single-feed couplers will be replaced by a dual-feed racetrack design to minimize the multipole field effects. We will present detailed studies of the multipole fields in the SLAC linac RF coupler and the improvements with the dual-feed ractrack design using the parallel finite element S-parameter solver S3P.
