Linac Structure Project

This project involves straightening and realignment of the Linac 3-m long traveling-wave rf structures benefiting the new APS photo-cathode RF gun and minimizing the effects of wakefield.  This will also improve energy transfer through the Linac from the PC and thermionic guns.  Three structures are to be replaced and straightened per year + rigging charges and the 1st set of supports for FY’18 with the costs shown.
