Energy deposition in the conversion targets of positron sources for future linear colliders will lead to thermal shock waves which could limit the targets’ lifetimes. For the International Linear Collider baseline source, we have studied the energy deposition in a target taking the higher harmonics of the undulator radiation fully into account and applying hydrodynamical models for the resulting heat flow to determine the thermal stress in the target and to assess its survivability.
