System for Stabilizing Phase of a Picosecond Laser Sysem to an RF Accelerator

Summary

The invention relates to an improved method and system for synchronizing signals in a particle accelerator system. In one embodiment, a method and system is disclosed whereby a phase of laser pulses are monitored, and a high-frequency signal is adjusted as necessary to be substantially in-phase with the laser pulses. In another embodiment, a method and system is disclosed whereby a phase of an electromagnetic field in an electron gun is monitored, and a high-frequency signal is adjusted as necessary to be substantially in-phase with the electromagnetic field.
