  Noise is a random signal that affects the performance of all electronic and/or optical devices. Although the sources of different kinds of noise have their backgrounds in physics, engineers dealing with noise use different methods and units to specify noise. The intention of this tutorial is to describe the main effects of noise in electronics up to optical frequencies while providing links between the physics and engineering worlds. In particular, noise is considered harmful while degrading the signal-to-noise ratio or broadening the spectrum of signal sources. On the other hand, noise can be itself a useful signal. Finally, artificially generated signals that exhibit many properties of random natural noise are sometimes required.

  Electron beam diagnostics plays a crucial role in the precise and reliable generation of ultra-short high bril-liance XUV and soft X-ray beams at the Free Electron Laser in Hamburg (FLASH). Most diagnostic systems monitor each of up to typically 600 bunches per beam, with a frequency of up to 1 MHz, a typical charge be-tween 0.1 and 1 nC and an energy of 350 to 1250 MeV. The diagnostic monitors have recently undergone a major upgrade. This process started several years ago with the development of monitors fulfilling the requirements of the European XFEL and of the FLASH2 undulator beamline and it continued with their installation and commissioning. Later they have been further improved and an upgrade was made in the old part of the linac. Also the FLASHForward plasma-wakefield acceleration experiment has been installed in the third beamline. This paper will give an overview of the upgrade of the BPM, Toroid and BLM systems, pointing out to their improved performance. Other systems underwent a partial upgrade, mainly by having their VME-based ADCs replaced with MTCA type. The overall status of the diagnostic will be reviewed.

  The machine protection system (MPS) is one of the essential components to realize safe operation of the J-PARC neutrino beamline, where a high intensity neutrino beam for the T2K long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment is generated by striking 30GeV protons on a graphite target. The proton beam is extracted from the J-PARC main ring proton synchrotron (MR) into the primary beamline. The beamline is currently operated with 485kW MR beam power. The MR beam power is planned to be upgraded to 1.3+ MW. The neutrino production target could be damaged if the high intensity beam hits off-centered on the target, due to non-uniform thermal stress. Therefore, in order to protect the target, it is important to immediately stop the beam when the beam orbit is shifted. A new FPGA-based interlock module, with which the beam profile is calculated in real time, was recently developed and commissioned. This module reads out signals from a titanium-strip-based secondary emission profile monitor (SSEM) which is placed in the primary beamline. An overview of the upgrade plan of the MPS system and the results of an initial evaluation test of the new interlock module will be discussed.

  The measurement of beam charge is a fundamental re-quirement to all particle accelerators facility. Shanghai soft X-ray free-electron laser (SXFEL) started construc-tion in 2015 and is now in the commission phase. Al-though integrated current transformer (ICT) were installed in the entire FEL for the measurement of the absolute beam charge, the accurate measurement becomes difficult in the injector and the main accelerator section due to the noise interference from external factors such as klystron modulator. The evaluation of the source of noise signals and the procession of noise reduction using the principal component analysis (PCA) are proposed in this paper. Experiment results show that PCA method can effectively remove the interference of lower frequency noise from the klystron modulator and it can also improve the resolution of the ICT system. Detailed experiment results and data analysis will be mentioned as well.

The Coherent Electron Cooling (CeC) Proof-of-Principle experiment [1], installed in the RHIC tunnel at BNL, has completed its second run. In this experiment, an FEL is used to amplify patterns imprinted on the cooling electron beam by the RHIC ion bunches and then the imprinted pattern is fed back to the ions to achieve cooling of the ion beam. Diagnostics for the CeC experiment have been fully commissioned during this year's run. An overview of the beam instrumentation is presented, this includes devices for measurements of beam current, position, profile, bunch charge, emittance, as well as gun photocathode imaging and FEL infra-red light emission diagnostics. Design details are discussed and beam measurement results are presented.

MOPA16 Design of a Compact Permanent Magnet Spectrometer for CILEX/APOLLON permanent-magnet, dipole, laser, induction 61

  Laser wakefield acceleration experiments make extensive use of small permanent magnets or magnet assemblies for analyzing and focusing electron beams produced in plasma accelerators. This choice is motivated by the ease of operation inside vacuum chambers, absence of power-supplies and feedthroughs, and potentially lower cost. Indeed, in these experiments space is at premium, and compactness is frequently required. At the same time, these magnets have to have a large angular acceptance for the divergent laser and electron beams which imposes constraint of the gap size. We will present the optimized design and characterization of a 100 mm long, 2.1 Tesla permanent magnet dipole. Furthermore, we will present the implementation of this magnet in a spectrometer that will measure the energy spectrum of electrons of [60-2000] MeV with a few percent resolution in the CILEX/APOLLON 10PW laser facility in France.

MOPA17 Momentum Compaction Measurement Using Synchrotron Radiation SRF, radiation, photon, experiment 66
 
  • L. Torino, N. Carmignani, A. Franchi

  The momentum compaction factor of a storage ring can be obtained by measuring how the beam energy changes with the RF frequency. Direct measurement of the beam energy can be difficult, long or even not possible with acceptable accuracy and precision in some machines such as ESRF. Since the energy spectrum of the Synchrotron Radiation (SR) depends on the beam energy, it is indeed possible to relate the variation of the beam energy with a variation of the produced SR flux. In this proceeding, we will present how we obtain a measurement of the momentum compaction using this dependence.

  The linac based cw electron accelerator ELBE operates different secondary beamlines one at a time. For the future different end stations should be served simultaneously, hence specific bunch patterns have to be kicked into different beam-lines. The variability of the bunch pattern and the frequency resp. switching time are one of the main arguments for a stripline-kicker. A design with two tapered active electrodes and two ground fenders was optimized in time and frequency domain with the software package CST. From that a design has been transferred into a construction and was manufactured. The presentation summarises the recent results and the status of the project.

Cavity bunch length measurement is used to obtain the bunch length depending on the eigenmodes exciting in-side the cavity. For today's FELs, the longitudinal distribution of particles in electron bunch (bunch shape) may be non-Gaussian, sometimes very novel. In this paper, the influence of bunch shape on the cavity bunch length measurement is analyzed, and some examples are given to verify the theoretical results. The analysis shows that the longitudinal distribution of particles in electron bunch has little influence on the cavity bunch length measure-ment when the bunch length is less than 1 ps and the eigenmodes used in measurement are below 10GHz.

  Abstract: Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) cavities are becoming popular in modern particle accelerators. When the SRF cavity is transitioning from the non-conducting to the Superconducting state at the critical temperature (Tc), the ambient magnetic field can be trapped. This trapped flux may lead to an increase in the surface resistance of the cavity wall, which can reduce the Q-factor and efficiency of the cavity. In order to increase the Q-factor, it is important to lower the surface resistance by reducing the amount of magnetic flux trapped in the cavity wall to sub 10mG range during the Tc transition. In this paper, we present a 3-axis automatic active magnetic field compensation system that is capable of reducing the earth magnetic field and any local disturbance field. Design techniques are described to enhance the system stability while utilizing the flexibility of embedded electronics. This paper describes the system implementation and concludes with initial results of tests. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed magnetic field compensation system can reduce the earth magnetic field to around 2.5 mG even without shielding.

The Jefferson Lab Electron-Ion Collider (JLEIC) design relies on cooling of the ion beam with bunched electron beam constrained in a pair of long solenoids. The high current cooling electron beam needs to be generated in a magnetized electron source, and the beam's magnetization needs to be maintained during the acceleration and transport to the cooling channel. A non-invasive real time monitoring system is highly desired to quantify electron beam magnetization. The authors propose to use a passive copper RF cavity in TE011 mode as such a monitor. In this paper, we present the mechanism and scaling law of this device, as well as the design and preliminary test results of the prototype cavity.

  The accuracy and stability of beam position moni-tors(BPMs) are important for all kinds of measurement systems and feedback systems in particle accelerator field. A proper method detecting faulty beam position monitor or monitoring their stability could optimize accel-erator operating conditions. With development in ma-chine learning methods, a series of powerful analysis approaches make it possible for detecting beam position monitor's stability. Here, this paper proposed a clustering analysis approach to detect the defective BPMs. The method is based on the idea that cluster centres are char-acterized by a higher density than their neighbours and by a relatively large distance from points with higher densi-ties. The results showed that clustering by fast search and find of density peaks could classify beam data into dif-ferent clusters on the basis of their similarity. And that, aberrant data points could be detected by decision graph. So the algorithm is appropriate for BPM detecting and it could be a significant supplement for data analysis in accelerator physics.

  The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the National Metrology Institute of Germany, utilizes an electron storage ring - the Metrology Light Source (MLS), located in Berlin, as a radiation source standard in the VIS, UV and VUV spectral range. In order to be able to calculate the absolute intensity of the radiation, the electron beam current has to be measured with low uncertainty. In this paper we focus on the measurement of the beam current in a range of several nA to 1 pA (one electron) by means of Si photodiodes, detecting synchrotron radiation from the beam. Electrons are gradually scraped out of the ring and the diode signal is analyzed afterwards. The exact number of stored electrons then can be derived from the signal. The measurement is carried out automatically with an in-house developed software.

A Cryogenic Current Comparator (CCC) is a non-destructive, metrological-traceable charged particle beam intensity measurement system for the nano-ampere range. Using superconducting shielding and coils, low temperature Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) and highly permeable flux-concentrators, the CCC can operate in the frequency range from DC to several kHz or hundreds of kHz depending on the requirement of the application. Also, the white noise level can be optimized down to 2 pA/sqrt(Hz) at 2.16 K. This work compares three different Pb- and Nb-based CCC-sensors developed at the Institute of Solid State Physics and Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology at Jena, Germany: CERN-Nb-CCC, optimized for applica-tion at CERN Antiproton Decelerator (AD) in 2015 with a free inner diameter of 185 mm; GSI-Pb-CCC, designed for GSI-Darmstadt with a free inner diameter of 145 mm, 1996 completed, 2014 upgraded; GSI-Nb-CCC-XD, de-signed for the GSI/FAIR-project with a free inner diame-ter of 250 mm, 2017 completed. The results of noise, small-signal, slew-rate, and drift measurements done 2015 and 2018 in the Cryo-Detector Lab at the University of Jena are presented here.

TUOB04 A Vertical Phase Space Beam Position and Emittance Monitor for Synchrotron Radiation synchrotron, experiment, detector, photon 186

  We report on a system (ps-BPM) that can measure the electron source position and angular motion at a single location in a synchrotron bend magnet beamline using a combination of a monochromator and an absorber with a K-edge to which the monochromator was tuned in energy. The vertical distribution of the beam was visualized with an imaging detector where horizontally one part of the beam was with the absorber and the other part with no absorber. The small range of angles from the source onto the monochromator crystals creates an energy range that allows part of the beam to be below the K-edge and the other part above. Measurement of the beam vertical location without the absorber and edge vertical location with the absorber gives the source position and angle. Measurements were made to investigate the possibility of using the ps-BPM to correct experimental imaging data. We have introduced periodic electron beam motion using a correction coil in the storage ring lattice. The measured and predicted motions compared well for two different frequencies. We then show that measurement of the beam width and edge width gives information about the vertical electron source size and angular distribution.

TUOC01 Integration of a Pilot-Tone Based BPM System Within the Global Orbit Feedback Environment of Elettra FPGA, controls, Ethernet, feedback 190

  In this contribution, we describe the advantages of the pilot tone compensation technique that we implemented in a new BPM prototype for Elettra 2.0. Injecting a fixed reference tone upstream of cables allows for a continuous calibration of the system, compensating the different behaviour of every channel due to thermal drifts, variations of cable properties, mismatches and tolerances of components. The system ran successfully as a drop-in substitute for a Libera Electron not only during various machine shifts, but also during a user dedicated beamtime shift for more than 10 hours, behaving in a transparent way for all the control systems and users. The equivalent RMS noise (at 10 kHz data rate) for the pilot tone position was less than 200 nm on a 19 mm vacuum chamber radius, with a long-term stability better than 1 um in a 12-hour window. Two main steps led to this important result: firstly, the development of a novel RF front end that adds the pilot tone to the signals originated by the beam, secondly, the realisation of an FPGA-based double digital receiver that demodulates both beam and pilot amplitudes, calculating the compensated X and Y positions.

  We are developing a new electron beam position monitor (BPM) system for the low-emittance upgrade of SPring-8. The requirements for the BPM system are: (1) a single-pass resolution of 100 µm rms for a 100 pC bunch and an electric center accuracy of 100 µm rms for the initial beam commissioning to achieve the first turn, (2) a closed-orbit distortion (COD) resolution better than 0.1 µm rms for a 100 mA stored beam and a position stability of less than 5 µm for the ultimate stability of a photon beam axis. We have completed prototypes of a precise button electrode and a BPM block to obtain high-intensity signals and sufficient mechanical accuracy while suppressing high-Q trapped modes leading to impedance and heating issues. The development of readout electronics based on the MTCA.4 standard and the evaluation of radiation-hard coaxial cables have also been conducted. The prototype BPM head was installed in the present SPring-8 storage ring for performance verification with an actual electron beam. We confirmed sufficient signal intensity, electric center accuracy, position stability, etc. by the beam test. The new BPM system is almost ready for the SPring-8 upgrade.

    SOLEIL, Gif-sur-Yvette, France
 
  Soleil is currently testing new beam loss monitors to replace its pin-diode based existing system. The new detectors are made of plastic scintillators associated with photomultiplier and connected to Libera BLM dedicated electronics. This new detector should provide both fast (turn by turn) and slow (averaged) loss measurements, post mortem capabilities and should be less sensitive to the beam directivity compared to the pin-diodes. Different methods for a relative calibration of the modules are under investigation, either using a diode (LED) or a cesium radioactive source. Calibration results and first measurements with beam are presented.

Arc discharge due to the electron emission is one of the key issues in the CW superconducting RF(SRF) for the CiADS particle accelerator. Arc discharges can deteriorate the SRF cavities and damage the facility. Monitoring arc discharges is important for the purpose of machine protection. In this paper, an arc discharge detector has been designed to provide fast response upon events of arc discharge using open-source hardware and LabVIEW software. Electronic design techniques are described to enhance the system stability while utilizing the flexibility of embedded electronics. The proposed detector system gives about 700 ns of response time and it employs a LabVIEW based graphic user interface. The system has the capability of detecting the instantaneous arc discharge events in real time. Timestamps of the event will be recorded to assist beam diagnostics. This paper describes the hardware/software implementation and concludes with initial results of tests at CiADS.

  The low energy RHIC Electron Cooler (LEReC) will be operating with 1.6-2.6 MeV electron beams having up to 140 kW power. It was determined that under the worst case scenario the missteered electron beam can damage the vacuum chamber and in-vacuum components within 40 us. Hence, the LEReC requires a dedicated fast machine protection system (MPS). The LEReC MPS has been designed and built and currently is under commissioning. In this paper we describe the most recent developments with the LEReC MPS.

AWAKE (The Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment at CERN) stripline BPMs are required to measure the position of the single electron bunch to a position resolution of less than 10 µm rms for electron charge of 100 pC to 1 nC. This paper describes the design, installation and commissioning of a such BPM system developed by TRIUMF (Canada). Total 12 BPMs and electronics had been installed on AWAKE beam lines and started commissioning since Fall of 2017. The calibration and measurement performance are also reviewed.

TUPB02 Complete Test Results of New BPM Electronics for the ESRF New LE-Ring electronics, SRF, controls, MMI 257
 
  • K.B. Scheidt
    ESRF, Grenoble, France
 
  Among the 320 BPMs in the ESRF new low emittance ring, a set of 128 units will be equipped with new electronics, while the other set (192) will be served by the existing Libera-Brilliance electronics. These new electronics are an upgraded version of the low-cost Spark electronics originally developed 3 years ago for the ESRF Injector complex. All these 128 units have been installed in the first half of 2018 on existing BPM signals (through duplication with RF-splitters) and subsequently been tested thoroughly for performance characteristics like stability, resolution and reliability. It will be shown that while these Sparks have a very straightforward and simple concept, i.e. completely omitting calibration schemes like RF-cross-bar switching, pilot-tone introduction or active temperature control, that they are fully compatible with all the beam position measurement requirements of this new ring.

  SPIRAL2 project is based on a multi-beam superconducting LINAC designed to accelerate 5 mA deuteron beams up to 40 MeV, proton beams up to 33 MeV and 1 mA light and heavy ions (Q/A = 1/3) up to 14.5 MeV/A. The accurate tuning of the LINAC is essential for the operation of SPIRAL2 and requires measurement of the beam transverse position, the phase of the beam with respect to the radiofrequency voltage, the ellipticity of the beam and the beam energy with the help of Beam Position Monitor (BPM) system. The commissioning of the RFQ gave us the opportunity to install two BPM sensors, associated with their electronics, mounted on a test bench. The test bench is a D-plate fully equipped with a complete set of beam diagnostic equipment in order to characterize as completely as possible the beam delivered by the RFQ and to gain experience with the behavior of these diagnostics under beam operation. This paper addresses the measurements carried with the two BPMs on the Dplate: energy, transverse position and ellipticity under 750 KeV proton beam operation

  FLASH is a free-electron laser driven by a supercon-ducting linac at DESY in Hamburg. It generates high-brilliance XUV and soft X-ray pulses by SASE (Self Amplified Spontaneous Emission). Many accelerating cavities are equipped with HOMBPMs (Higher Order Mode based Beam Position Monitors) to align the beam and monitor the transverse beam position. However, these lose their position prediction ability over time. In this paper, we applied an efficient measurement and signal analysis with various data process methods including PLS (Partial Least Square) and SVD (Singular Value Decomposition) to determine the transverse beam position. By fitting the HOM signals with a genetic algorithm, we implemented a new HOMBPM calibration procedure and obtained reliable beam prediction positions over a long time. A stable RMS error of about 0.2 mm by using the spectra of signals and 0.15 mm by using the new method over two months has been observed.

  Cavity beam position monitor (CBPM) is widely used to measure the transverse position in free-electron laser (FEL) and international linear collider (ILC) facilities due to the characteristic of high sensitive. In order to study the limiting factors of the position resolution of cavity BPM, the influence of beam inclination angle on the measure-ment of CBPM position and the direction of beam deflec-tion was analyzed. The simulation results show that the beam inclination angle is an important factor limiting the superiority of CBPM with extremely high position resolu-tion. The relative beam experiments to change the relative inclination angle between the cavity and the electron beam based on a 4-dimension moveable platform were performed in Shanghai Soft X-ray FEL (SXFEL) facility, the experiment results will also be mentioned as well.

  Proton beams used in Huazhong University of Science and Technology Proton Therapy Facility(HUST-PTF)have extreme low currents of the order of nanoampere,which is a great challenge to beam diagnostics due to low signal level. Conventional destructive beam diagnostic devices will affect the quality of the beam and cannot work online during the patient treatment, so a non-destructive stripline beam position monitor (BPM) is designed. This study will introduce some analysis and simulation results of the stripline BPM, such as the coupling between the electrodes, impedance matching, signal response, etc. We also discussed how to increase the output signal by geometry optimization.

  Long-term stability is one of the most important properties of the BPM readout system. Recent developments on pilot tone capable front end have been tested with an established BPM readout electronics. The goal was to demonstrate the effectiveness of the pilot tone compensation to varying external conditions. Simulated cable attenuation change and temperature variation of the readout electronics were confirmed to have no major effect to position data readout. The output signals from Elettra front end (carrier frequency and pilot tone frequency) were processed by a Libera Spark with the integrated standard front end which contains several filtering, attenuation and amplification stages. Tests were repeated with a modified instrument (optimized for pilot tone) to compare the long-term stability results. Findings show the pilot tone front end enables great features like self-diagnostics and cable-fault compensation as well as small improvement in the long-term stability. Measurement resolution is in range of 10 nanometers RMS in 5 Hz bandwidth.

  The injection line into the CERN Low Energy Ion Ring (LEIR) has recently been equipped with nine, new, electrostatic Beam Position Monitors (BPMs) in order to measure and optimize the trajectory of the low intensity ion beams coming from LINAC3. In this paper, we describe the design of the BPM, the low noise charge amplifier mounted directly on the BPM, and the digital acquisition system. There is special emphasis on the first commissioning results where the measured beam positions were seen to be perturbed by EMI and charging of the BPM electrodes by secondary particles. The effect of mitigation measures, including repelling voltages on the electrodes and external magnetic fields, are also discussed.

The beam quality monitoring of extracted beams from SIS18, transported to the HADES experiment, is of great importance to ensure high efficiency data recording. The main detector system used for this purpose is the Start-Veto system which consists of two diamond based sensors made of pcCVD and scCVD materials. Both sensors are equipped with a double-sided strip segmented metalization (300 µm width) which allows a precise position determination of the beam position. Those senors are able to deliver a time precision <100 ps and can handle rate capabilities up to 107 particles/channel. The read-out of the sensors is based on the TRB3 system [1]. Precise FPGA-TDCs (264 channels, <10 ps RMS) are implemented inside FPGAs. The TRB3 system serves as data acquisition system with scaler capability. Analysis and on-line visualization will be performed in DABC [2]. Having the precise time measurement and a precise position information of the incoming beam ions one can monitor important beam parameters namely the beam intensity, its position during extraction and the beam time structure. In this contribution the general read-out concept will be introduced.

  The beam position monitoring system of the Cooler Synchrotron (COSY) has been upgraded in 2017. The upgrade was driven by the requirement of the JEDI collaboration to significantly improve the orbit control and by the electronics approaching end-of-life. The entire signal processing chain has been replaced. The new low noise amplifiers, mounted directly on the BPM vacuum feedthroughs, were developed in-house and include adjustable gain in 80 dB rage and in-situ test and calibration capabilities. The signals are digitized and processed by means of commercial BPM signal processing units featuring embedded EPICS IOC. The decision path, technical details of the upgrade and performance of the new system are presented.

This paper will present some data simulation and experiment results to discuss the function between resolution and pass band, sampling rate or other influence factor. We hope that this paper would give some advice for building up data acquisition system of SBPM.

  Intra-bunch transverse instabilities are routinely measured in the LHC using a "Head-Tail Monitor" based on sampling a wide-band BPM with a high-speed digitiser. However, these measurements are limited by the dynamic range and short record length possible with typical commercial oscilloscopes. This paper will present the initial results from the LHC Multi-Band Instability Monitor, a new technique developed to provide information on the beam stability with a high dynamic range using frequency domain analysis of the transverse beam spectrum.

Beam transverse quadrupole oscillation can be excited in the injection stage if injected beam parameters(twiss parameters or dispersion) are not matched with the parameters in the injection point of the storage ring. In order to measure the beam transverse quadrupole oscillation in the injection stage for the HLS-II storage ring, some axially symmetric stripline BPMs were designed. Transverse quadrupole component for these BPMs was simulated and off-line calibrated. Beam transverse quadrupole oscillation has been measured when beam was injected into the HLS-II electron storage ring. The spectrum of the transverse quadrupole component showed that beam transverse quadrupole oscillation is very obvious in the injection stage and this oscillation isn't the second harmonic of beam betatron oscillation. The relationship between transverse quadrupole oscillation and beam current was also analyzed and the result shows that the relationship is not linear.

  SuperKEKB is an electron-positron collider, which aims to achieve a peak luminosity of 8×1035 cm-2 s−1 using what is known as the "nano-beam" scheme. This paper reports on the commissioning and performance of a luminosity dither feedback. The system, based on one previously used at SLAC for PEP-II, is employed for collision orbit feedback in the horizontal plane. Twelve air-core Helmholtz coils drive the positron beam sinusoidally at a frequency near 80 Hz, forming a closed bump at the interaction point. A lock-in amplifier detects the amplitude and phase of the corresponding frequency component of the luminosity signal. When the beams are aligned for peak luminosity, the magnitude of the luminosity component at the dithering frequency becomes zero. The magnitude grows as the beams are offset, and the phase shifts by 180 degrees when the direction of the necessary correction reverses. The hardware and algorithm were tested during SuperKEKB Phase II run. The electron beam orbit was successfully adjusted to minimize the amplitude of the dither frequency component of the luminosity signal, and the optimal condition was maintained by continuously adjusting the electron beam orbit.

In a laser driven plasma based particle accelerators a stable synchronization of the electron bunch and of the plasma wakefield in the range of less than 2 fs is necessary in order to optimize the acceleration. For this purpose we are developing a new shot to shot feedback system with a time resolution of less than 1 fs. As a first step, stable THz pulses are generated by optical rectification of a fraction of the plasma generating high energy laser pulses in a nonlinear lithium niobate crystal. It is planed that the generated THz pulses will energy modulate the electron bunches shot to shot before the plasma to achieve the time resolution of 1 fs. In this contribution we systematically investigate the influence of the optical properties as well as the theoretical description of the THz generation on the conversion efficiency of the generation of short THz pulses in undepleted approximation. We compare different approximations for the modeling of the generation dynamics and of the dielectric function in order to investigate the importance of a detailed description of the optical properties. First results by considering intensity decreasing of the laser pump will be presented.
*The feedback system will be tested at the Accelerator R&D facility SINBAD (Short Innovative Bunches and Accelerators at DESY).

    DESY, Hamburg, Germany
 
  Three electro-optical bunch length detection systems based on spectral decoding have been installed and are being commissioned at the European XFEL. The systems are capable of recording individual longitudinal bunch profiles with sub-picosecond resolution at a bunch repetition rate 1.13 MHz. Bunch lengths and arrival times of entire bunch trains with single-bunch resolution have been measured as well as jitter and drifts for consecutive bunch trains. In this paper, we present first measurement results for the electro-optical detection system located after the second bunch compressor. A preliminary comparison with data from the bunch arrival-time monitor shows good agreement.

    SINAP, Shanghai, People's Republic of China
 
  Shanghai soft X-ray free electron laser (SXFEL) is able to generate high brightness and ultra-short light pulses. The generation of the light sources relies on the synchronization between seeded laser and electron bunch. Beam arrival time play an important role to keep the synchronization. For the SXFEL, a beam arrival time resolution under 100 fs is required. In this paper, the application of beam arrival time measurement scheme on SXFEL has been presented. The whole BAM system consists of four parts: beam arrival time monitor, electronic front-end, signal acquisition system, and high-level signal processing and presentation. Currently, four sets of beam arrival time monitors (BAMs) have been installed in the SXFEL and distributed in four different locations. The relevant beam arrival time experiment and beam flight time experiment based on the dual-cavities mixing method have also been performed so as to evaluate and analyze the beam status.

  Soleil is currently testing new dose monitors based on RadFET transistors. This new detector at SOLEIL will provide a measurement of the dose received by equipment that are damaged by the radiations in the storage ring, and to anticipate their replacement. This monitor should be very compact to be placed in tiny areas, sensitive to all kind of radiation and low cost to install many of them around the ring. A readout electronic module is being developed in-house, and a first prototype has been build and installed on the machine. Description of the system and first results recorded on the machine are presented.

WEOB03 The European XFEL Beam Loss Monitor System FEL, high-voltage, controls, undulator 357
 
  • T. Wamsat, T. Lensch
    DESY, Hamburg, Germany
 
  The European XFEL MTCA based Beam Loss Monitor System (BLM) is composed of about 470 monitors, which are part of the Machine Protection System (MPS). The BLMs detect losses of the electron beam, in order to protect accelerator components from damage and excessive activation, in particular the undulators, since they are made of permanent magnets. Also each cold accelerating module is equipped with a BLM to measure the sudden onset of field emission (dark current) in cavities. In addition some BLMs are used as detectors for wire- scanners. Experience from the already running BLM system in FLASH2 which is developed for XFEL and tested here, led to a fast implementation of the system in the XFEL. Further firmware and server developments related to alarm generation and handling are ongoing. The BLM systems structure, the current status and the different possibilities to trigger alarms which stop the electron beam will be presented.

WEOC02 Review of Recent Status of Coded Aperture X-ray Monitors for Beam Size Measurement detector, optics, emittance, MMI 361

X-ray beam profile monitors based on coded aperture imaging use an array of pinholes or slits to achieve large open apertures, which provide improved photon collection efficiency over single pinholes or slits. The resulting improvement in photon statistics makes possible single-bunch, single-turn measurements at lower bunch currents than are possible with a single pinhole or slit. In addition, the coded aperture pattern provides extra information for beam profile reconstruction, which makes possible somewhat improved resolution, as compared to a single slit. The reconstruction algorithm for coded aperture imaging is more complicated and computing-intensive than that for a single slit, though with certain classes of coded pertures a faster reconstruction method is possible. This talk will provide a survey of efforts to use coded aperture imaging for beam profile diagnostics at accelerators to date, covering principles and practical experiences with the technique, as well as prospects for the future at SuperKEKB, where it forms the primary means of measuring vertical beam sizes.

WEOC03 A Simple Model to Describe Smoke Ring Shaped Beam Profile Measurements With Scintillating Screens at the European XFEL FEL, diagnostics, scattering, ECR 366
 
  • G. Kube, S. Liu, A.I. Novokshonov, M. Scholz

  Standard beam profile measurements of high-brightness electron beams based on OTR may be hampered by coherence effects. Therefore it was decided for the European XFEL to measure transverse beam profiles based on scintillating screen monitors using LYSO:Ce. While it is possible to resolve beam sizes down to a few micrometers with this scintillator, the experience during the XFEL commissioning showed that the measured emittance values were significantly larger than the expected ones. In addition, beam profiles measured at bunch charges of a few hundred pC showed a 'smoke ring' structure. While coherent OTR emission and beam dynamical influence can be excluded, it is assumed that the profile distortions are caused by effects from the scintillator material. Following the experience in high energy physics, a simple model was developed which takes into account quenching effects of excitonic carriers inside a scintillator in a heuristic way. Based on this model, the observed beam profiles can be understood qualitatively. Together with the model description, first comparisons with experiments will be presented, and new scintillators suitable for beam profile diagnostics will be discussed.

  Five Ionization Profile Monitors are being built by CEA in the framework of the in-kind contribution agreement signed with ESS. The IPMs will be installed in the Cold Linac where the proton energy range they need to cover extends from 90 MeV to 2 GeV. The ESS fields intensity of 1.10+09 protons/bunch delivered at a frequency of 352 or 704 MHz, with a duty cycle of 4%, may strongly affect the trajectories of the ionized molecules and electrons created by the passage of the beam through the residual gas. In order to quantify and to develop a correction algorithm for these space charge effects, a code was initiated at ESS and completed at CEA Saclay with the possibility to include real case electric fields calculated with Comsol Multiphysics. A general overview of the code and its preliminary results are presented here.

  The accelerating RF fields in superconducting cavities must be controlled precisely in FEL (Free Electron Laser) facilities to avoid beam energy spread and arrival time jitter. Otherwise the beam quality is degraded. The LLRF (Low Level Radio Frequency) system controls the RF field and provides a highly stable RF reference. A new type of beam phase determination technique based on beam-excited HOMs (Higher Order Modes) in cavities has been implemented. The two special couplers installed at both ends of each cavity, pick up the signals containing both the leakage of the accelerating field and the HOM signals. Therefore the signals can be used to calculate the beam phase directly with respect to the RF phase. We analysed the factors which may affect the result of the beam phase on a long-term based on an experimental platform at FLASH. Some phase drifts between the HOM-BPhM (Beam Phase Monitor) and the LLRF system phase measurement were observed and the reason will be further studied.

Coherent radiation, such as coherent transition radiation, coherent diffraction radiation, coherent synchrotron radiation, etc, can be used to measure the longitudinal distribution of the electron beam bunch of any length, as long as the coherent radiation spectrum can be measured. In many cases, the Kramers-Krönig relationship is used to reconstruct the temporal distribution of the beam from the coherent radiation spectrum. However, the extrapolation of the low frequency will introduce the uncertainty of the reconstruction. In this paper, an algorithm of differential evolution (DE) for temporal reconstruction is discussed. The DE reconstruction works well for the complex and ultrashort distribution. It will be an effectIve tool to accurately measure the femtosecond bunch temporal structure.

  Beam arrival time monitor (BAM) is an important tool to investigate the temporal characteristic of elec-tron bunch in free electron laser (FEL) like Shanghai soft X-ray Free Electron Laser (SXFEL). Since the timing jitter of electron bunch will affect the FEL's stability and the resolution of time-resolved experi-ment at FELs, it is necessary to precisely measure the electron bunch arrival time so as to reduce the timing jitter of the electron bunch with beam based feedback. The beam arrival time monitor based on electro-optic modulator (EOM) is already planned and will be de-veloped and tested at SXFEL in the next three years. Here the design and preliminary results of the EOM based beam arrival time monitor will be introduced in this paper.

  We describe an electronics for electron bunch arrival time monitor (BAM) with a less than 10 femtosecond resolution, which was developed in 2017 and is currently in use at PAL-XFEL. When electron bunches go through an S-band monopole cavity, about 1 us long RF signal can be obtained to compare with a low phase noise RF reference. The differential phase jitter corresponds to the arrival time jitter of electron bunches. RF front-end (F/E) which converts the S-band pickup signal to intermediate frequency (IF) signal, is the essential part of a good time resolution. The digitizer and the signal processor of the BAM electronics are installed in an MTCA platform. This paper presents the design scheme, test results of the BAM electronics and future improvement plans.

  A direct method was developed to measure the micro-bunching instability in the X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL). The micro-bunching instability comes from the interaction between the electron beam and the coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR), and the FEL intensity can be affected significantly by the micro-bunching instability. However, no effective method had been introduced to monitor the micro-bunching instability, so that we installed a CCD camera to measure the micro-bunching instability after the bunch compressor. The CCD camera showed the micro-bunching instability successfully, and more interesting features of the micro-bunching instability were revealed from it.

To fulfil the requirements of a 4 ps phase resolution the symmetric λ-type RF-deflector based on the parallel wire line with capacitive plates has been selected. Additional steering magnet to correct incline of the focused electron beam is also used. Limitations due to space charge of the analysed beam and due to external magnetic fields are discussed.

  The comprehensive development of beam longitudinal profile measurement systems based on stroboscopic optical dissector has started at VEPP-2000 electron-positron collider complex. The dissector was setted and commissioned at booster ring BEP that was deeply upgraded (2013-2015) to achieve top energy of 1 GeV. Bunch lengthening with current was studied at BEP with its new RF-cavity. In addition the method of synchrotron frequency measurement by dissector was applied. After dissector checkouts at BEP the similar studies were carried out with a single beam at VEPP-2000 storage ring in parallel with streak-camera measurements. Good agreement of results was observed. Series of single-turn longitudinal and vertical bunch profiles snapshots was made by streak-camera with respect to delay after counter beam injection. The unexpected longitudinal beam dynamics was observed for intensities above the beam-beam threshold. These studies together with beam-beam coherent oscillations spectra seen by pickups are of a great interest for understanding of flip-flop phenomenon which establish a fundamental luminosity limit at VEPP-2000 operating with round beams.

  The CERN Linac4 has been successfully commissioned to its nominal energy and will provide 160 MeV H ions for charge-exchange injection into the Proton Synchrotron Booster (PSB) from 2020. A complete set of beam diagnostic devices has been installed along the accelerating structures and the transfer line for safe and efficient operation. This includes two longitudinal Bunch Shape Monitors (BSM) developed by the Institute for Nuclear Research (INR, Moscow). Setting-up the RF cavities of Linac4 involves beam loading observations, time-of-flight measurements and reconstruction of the longitudinal emittance from phase profile measurements. In this paper the BSM is presented along with some results obtained during accelerator commissioning, including a comparison with phase measurements performed using the Beam Position Monitor system.

  Two Bunch Arrival-Time Monitors (BAM), based on fiber optical Mach-Zehnder intensity modulators, which encode the arrival-time information in the amplitude of the laser pulses delivered through a highly stable pulsed optical reference distribution system, have been commissioned and are operational at SwissFEL. The first BAM is at the RF-Gun, the second one is downstream the first bunch compressor. Both BAMs operate simultaneously and measure the arrival-time drift and jitter with less than 5 fs resolution. For the first time we have experimentally verified the excellent SwissFEL bunch stability. We have developed concepts and tested hardware, which enhance the commissioning and user operation. In particular we have successfully tested a tool for fast timing overlap between the electron bunch and the reference laser pulse, which allows fast system set-up and characterization. We have verified the capability for 2-bunch and 100 Hz operation. In comparison to the prototype detectors, which were operational at the SwissFEL test injector, we have achieved an improved BAM resolution in the range 10 pC - 200 pC.

  The Photo Injector Test facility at DESY in Zeuthen (PITZ) is dedicated to the development of high-brightness electron sources for free-electron lasers. At PITZ, to measure the emittance of space-charge-dominated beams, the slit scan technique is used. For slice emittance measurements a transverse deflecting structure (TDS) is employed. The electron beam distribution is measured by means of scintillator screens. Both the TDS and the slit mask reduce the signal strength, giving stringent requirements on the sensitivity of the screens. At PITZ, high-sensitivity Ce:LYSO screens have been installed at the same screen stations as the standard Ce:YAG screens to solve low-intensity issues. A comparison of both screens is presented.

Wire scanners are widely used for transverse beam size diagnostics. The minimum detectable beam size is affected by the diameter of a single wire. The smallest carbon or tungsten wires used so far have diameters of about 4 microns. With the development of modern electron accelerators and the demands from future linear electron-positron colliders, sub-micron beam sizes have to be resolved. In order to increase the resolution, the decrease of the wire diameter is required. The authors of Ref. * proposed to manufacture thin gold stripes of rectangular shape (widths are equal to 1 µm or 2 µm and height is equal to 3 µm) on Si3N4 membrane. We propose to use another arrangement of gold stripes with varying period on a Si substrate. A set of 11 stripes with 1 µm width and 10 micron height with varying gap width in the range 3-0.25 µm ("grating scanner") was simulated by using an analytical model and by the Geant4 code. By moving this scanner across the beam one could measure the Bremsstrahlung yield vs. the coordinate, resulting in an oscillating dependence. The visibility of the resulting image allows defining the beam sizes in the range of 0.5-1.5 µm for the proposed scanner parameters.

The spatial resolution of an OTR monitor for electron beam profile diagnostics is determined by the resolution of the optical system and by the Point Spread Function (PSF) representing the single electron image. In the image plane, the PSF has a typical lobe-shape distribution with an inter-peak distance depending on wavelength and lens aperture ratio [*]. For a beam with a transverse rms size smaller than the distance, the reconstruction of the beam profile has several difficulties [**, ***]. We propose to reduce the PSF contribution and to improve the spatial resolution of an OTR monitor simply by rotating the lens optical axis with respect to the specular reflection direction. If the difference between the rotational angle and the lens aperture is much larger than the inverse Lorentz factor, the PSF has a Gaussian-like distribution which matches practically with the Airy distribution. Thus the resolution depends on wavelength and lens aperture. In principle, for lens apertures in the order of 0.1 rad such an approach should allow to measure beam sizes comparable to the wavelength of observation, using a simple deconvolution procedure for the measured image and the PSF.

  A scintillating fibre beam monitor has been developed at CERN for the measurement of low energy and low intensity secondary beams. This monitor can track the passage of individual particles up to intensities of 107 particles per second per mm2, over an active area of 20 cm x 20 cm, and with a spatial resolution of 1 mm. Thanks to an external trigger system, the achieved detection efficiency is 95% and the noise level is kept below 10-4 events/second. The simple design of this monitor avoids the common production difficulties of scintillating fibre detectors and makes its maintenance easier, when compared to other tracking detectors, due to the absence of gas or cooling. Using special electronics, a version of the monitor can also be used for time-of-flight measurements, achieving a time resolution of 900 ps. Thanks to its versatility, the monitor will perform several functions when measuring the secondary beams of the CERN Neutrino Platform: beam profile, position and intensity measurement, magnetic momentum spectrometry, particle identification through time-of-flight, and trigger generation for the experiments.

  High luminosity upgrades to the LHC at CERN and future energy frontier machines will require a new generation of minimally invasive profile measurement instruments. Production of a dense, focussed gas target allows beam-gas fluorescence to be exploited as an observable, giving an instrument suitable for installation even in regions of high magnetic field. This paper describes the development of a device based on these principles that would be suitable for operation in the LHC. It focusses on mechanisms for the production of a homogeneous gas curtain, the selection of an appropriate working gas and the optical fluorescence detection system.

WEPB18 Performance of a Reflective Microscope Objective in an X-ray Pinhole Camera target, photon, emittance, storage-ring 477
 
  • L. Bobb, G. Rehm
    DLS, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
 
  X-ray pinhole cameras are used to measure the transverse beam profile of the electron beam in the storage ring from which the emittance is calculated. As improvements to the accelerator lattice reduce the beam emittance, e.g. with upgrades to fourth generation synchrotron light sources, likewise the beam size will be reduced such that micron and sub-micron scale resolution is required for beam size measurement. Therefore the spatial resolution of the pinhole camera imaging system must be improved accordingly. Here, the performance of a reflective microscope objective is compared to the high quality refractive lens which is currently in use to image the scintillator screen to the camera. The modulation transfer functions for each system have been assessed and will be discussed.

  The ELBE (Electron Linac for beams with high Brilliance and low Emittance) facility in Dresden, Germany is a multipurpose user facility, which is also used for accelerator R&D purposes. The beam line was set up for transverse beam profile measurements, where the imaging system includes a series of three apodizers and five circular apertures. During beam operations both of these were changed remotely through automated LabView routines. The bunch structure and charge were varied to collect a series of images that were acquired automatically, and then stored for later analysis. Over 12,000 images were captured and then analyzed using software written at Jefferson Lab that runs ImageJ as it's main image processing library.

Low Energy RHIC electron cooling (LEReC) [1] is the first bunched electron cooler, designed to cool low energy ion beams at RHIC. The beam quality, including the transverse beam emittance, is critical for the success of cooling. The transverse electron beam emittance was characterized with a multi-slit and moving-slit device at various locations in the beamline. The beam emittance measurement and analysis are presented in this report.

The S-DALINAC is a thrice-recirculating, superconducting linear electron accelerator at TU Darmstadt. It can provide beams of electrons with energies up to 130 MeV and currents of 20 µA. The accelerator performance was improved by an extension of the beam diagnostics, as this increases the reproducibility of the machine settings. Therefore, the installation of several beam profile measurement stations is planned, which should be operational down to a beam current of 100 nA, as this current is used for beam tuning. Combining these devices with a quadrupole scan also allows for emittance measurements. The beam profile measurements shall be done based on optical transition radiation (OTR), resulting from the penetration of relativistic electrons from vacuum into a metal target. The radiation can be detected using standard cameras that provide information on the two-dimensional particle distribution. This contribution will address the layout of the measurement stations and a first test measurement will be presented.

WEPC05 The European XFEL Wire Scanner System detector, FEL, optics, undulator 498

  The European-XFEL (E-XFEL) is an X-ray Free Electron Laser facility located in Hamburg (Germany). The superconducting accelerator for up to 17.5 GeV electrons will provide photons simultaneously to several user stations. Currently 12 Wire Scanner units are used to image transverse beam profiles in the high energy sections. These scanners provide a slow scan mode which is currently used to measure beam emittance and beam halo distributions. When operating with long bunch trains (>100 bunches) also fast scans are planned to measure beam sizes in an almost nondestructive manner. Scattered electrons can be detected with regular Beam Loss Monitors (BLM) as well as dedicated wire scanner detectors. Latter are installed in different variants at certain positions in the machine. Further developments are ongoing to optimize the sensitivity of the detectors to be able to measure both, beam halo and beam cores within the same measurement with the same detector. This paper describes the current status of the system and examples of different slow scan measurements.

  The Echo Enabled Harmonic Generation (EEHG) experiment has been implemented on the FEL2 line of the FERMI FEL at Elettra (Italy). The main purpose is to validate the expected performance improvements at short wavelengths before a dedicated major upgrade is deployed. This paper describes the new diagnostics and the operational experience with them during the EEHG experiment. By means of a multi position vacuum vertical manipulator, different optical components are positioned on the electron and seed laser path. Both transverse and longitudinal measurements are performed. A YAG:Ce screen (e beam) and a terbium doped UV scintillator (laser) are imaged on a dedicated CMOS camera. For the temporal alignment, an OTR screen and a scattering surface are used to steer radiation from the e-beam and laser, onto a fast photodetector. Also coherent OTR radiation, due to micro-bunching, is acquired by means of a PbSe photodetector. Finally, for the normal EEHG operation, the laser beam is injected on the electron beam axis by means of a UV reflecting mirror. The results of the installed diagnostics commissioning are here presented.

  A proton therapy facility based on a superconducting cyclotron is under construction in Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST). In order to achieve precise treatment or dose distribution, the beam current would vary from 0.4 nA to 500 nA, in which case conventional non-intercepting instruments would fail due to their low sensitivity. So we propose to use a retractable scintillating screen to measure beam position and beam profile. In this paper, a comprehensive description of our new designed screen monitor is presented, including the choice of material of the screen, optical calibration and simulation of radiation protection. According to the off-line test, the resolution of the screen monitor can reach 0.13 mm/pixel.

  The beam diagnostics beamline BL7B using synchrotron radiation with 8.6 keV critical photon energy from bending magnet has been used to measure the electron-beam size and photon-beam profile on real-time basis. After the completion of the PLS-II, the Compound Refractive Lens (CRL) system was implemented in the optical hutch at BL7B to measure the electron-beam size from X-ray imaging. But we could not have a good image due to short focal length caused by limited space of the optical hutch. To solve this problem a Pinole Camera is implemented in the front-end of BL7B in return for the beamline extension. The progresses on the new x-ray imaging system is introduced in this presentation.
