In the period since its founding, Euclid TechLabs LLC has established a reputation for its development of advanced dielectric materials for the particle accelerator and microwave communities. Our expertise includes:

  • Photoinjectors
  • Wakefield-based THz sources
  • High uniformity, low loss ceramics
  • Ferroelectrics
  • CVD diamond structures
  • Superconducting structures
  • Numerical modeling and simulation
  • Accelerator instrumentation and control

Much of our effort is directed towards particle acceleration technologies based on Dielectric Loaded Accelerator (DLA) structures. These devices use electromagnetic waves (typically in the 1-100 GHz frequency range) propagating in a dielectric cavity to accelerate electrons. There are numerous variations on this approach, depending on whether the cavity is powered by a drive beam or external rf source, the configuration of the cavity, and the properties of the dielectric(s) used for its construction.

A brief overview of DLA technology, “High Power Rf Generation by Relativistic Beams in Dielectric Structures”, J. Appl. Phys. 84 663 (1998), is available here.
