Purpose of the POSIPOL 2006 Workshop
This workshop discusses options and open issues of a polarized
positron (POSItons POLarisés in French) source based
on laser Compton back scattering for ILC and CLIC, and it coordinates
R &D efforts towards a complete Compton source design.
The workshop topics include the optical layout and the beam
dynamics of the Compton ring and its injector, the laser system,
cavities and the feedback. It will also include the e+ production,
the capture system, the e+ stacking in the accumulator or in
the damping ring and the e+ pre-linac. The polarimetry issues
will be treated as well.
The experimental program from the different laboratories (KEK,
LAL, Frascati, SLAC, DESY,...) including various light sources
will be discussed. An overview and a comparison with the undulator
source will be presented.
