Design considerations for a developmental high power coupling loop to drive a resonant load
A radio frequency (RF) drive loop was designed for a 400 kw, 100% duty factor, 270 MHz resonant cavity load. Operating experience with a high power Alvarez linac at Chalk River resulted in the evolution of design features that reduce multifactoring, field emission and rf arc track damage. The design provides means for the development of coaxial vacuum windows, the evaluation of loop conductor shapes and the investigation of RF arc propagation phenomena.
