  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.

  In the end of linac temporary line in csns, we need a faraday cage to absorb the beam. in the beam experiment it will be mounted and used twice. according to the beam energy and current of csns, we choose water-cooled pipe structure with tilted panel after simulation. the main principle of the faraday cage design is to simplify the structure and reduce the radiation activation of it, to do this, we also do the simulation of radiation. to make sure the faraday cage is safe in beam experiment, we alos plug in a pt100 Platinum resistance to monitor the temperature. after faraday cage is built and mounted on the line, it works well and sustain the beam bombardment.

MOPA17 Momentum Compaction Measurement Using Synchrotron Radiation SRF, radiation, electron, photon 66
 
  • L. Torino, N. Carmignani, A. Franchi
    ESRF, Grenoble, France
 
  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 S-DALINAC is a thrice recirculating, superconducting linear electron accelerator at TU Darmstadt. It delivers electron beams in cw-mode with energies up to 130 MeV. The high-energy scraper system has been installed in its extraction beam line to reduce the energy spread and improve the energy stability of the beam for the experiments operated downstream. It comprises three scraper slits within a dispersion-conserving chicane consisting of four dipole magnets and eight quadrupole magnets. The primary scraper, located in a dispersive section, allows to improve and stabilize the energy spread. In addition energy fluctuations can be detected. Scraping of x- and y-halo is implemented in two positions enclosing the position of the primary scraper. We will present technical details and results of the first commissioning run of the recently installed system at the S DALINAC. Besides improving on the energy spread, it proved to be a valuable device to observe energy spread and energy fluctuations as well as to reduce background count rates next to the experimental areas.

  The DAΦNE collider instantaneous luminosity has been measured identifying Bhabha scattering events at low polar angle (∼10°) around the beam axis by using two small crystal calorimeters shared with the KLOE-2 experiment. Independent DAQ setup based on !CHAOS, a novel Control System architecture, has been designed and realized in order to implement a fast luminosity monitor, also in view of the DAΦNE future physics runs. The realized setup allows for measurement of Bunch-by-Bunch (BBB) luminosity that allows to investigate the beam-beam interaction for the Crab-Waist collisions at DAΦNE and luminosity dependence on the bunch train structure.

  Tune measurement is one of the most significant beam diagnostics at HLS-II storage ring. When measuring tune, higher tune spectral component and lower other compo-nents are expected, so that the tune measurement will be more accurate. To this end, a set of BBQ (Base Band Tune) front-end based on 3D (Direct Diode Detection) technique has previously developed to improve the effec-tive signal content and suppress other components. Em-ploying the BBQ front-end, four different tune measure-ment schemes are designed and related experiments per-formed on the HLS-II storage ring. Experimental results and analysis will be presented later.

  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.

  Shanghai soft X-ray Free Electron Laser (SXFEL) has acquired the custom designed Digital BPM processor used for signal processing of cavity BPMs and stripline BPMs. In order to realize monitor the beam position accurately, it has high demand for DBPM system performance. Considering the crosstalk may introduce distortion and influence beam position resolution, it is important to analyze and compensate the crosstalk to improve the resolution. We choose the CBPM signal to study the crosstalk for its narrowband and sensitive for phase. The main experiment concept is successive accessing four channels to form a signal transfer matrix, which including amplitude frequency response and phase response information. And the compensation algorithm is acquire four channel readouts, then using the signal transfer matrix to reverse the true signal to ensure the accurate beam position measurement. This concept has already been tested at SXFEL and hopeful to compensate the crosstalk sufficiently.

  A high intensity neutrino beam is utilized by a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment at J-PARC. To generate a high intensity neutrino beam, a high intensity proton beam is extracted from a 30GeV Main Ring Synchrotron (MR) to the neutrino primary beamline. In the beamline, one mistaken shot can potentially do serious damage to beamline equipment. To avoid such a consequence, many beamline equipment interlocks to stop the beam operation are implemented. Once an interlock is activated, prompt and proper error handling is necessary. We are developing an expert system for prompt and efficient understanding of the status to quickly resume the beam operation. An inference engine is one key component in the expert system. We are developing a Machine-Learning(ML) based inference engine for our expert system. ML is one of the most active research fields in computing, we adopt the technology from it. We report the progress of development of the expert system especially ML based inference engine.

  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.

  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.

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.

  It is obviously that the property of SBPM is influenced by data acquisition system, but how the procedure of data acquisition and processing takes effect is still room for enquiring into it. 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.

  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.

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.

Multi-bunch beam instabilities can often be controlled with high-speed digital bunch-by-bunch feedback systems. The detected motion is based on charge centroid measurements that, for short bunches, cannot resolve intrabunch charge dynamics. To compliment the BxB data, we installed a fast-gated camera with a rotating mirror to sweep visible-light synchrotron radiation across the camera CCD. The SR measurements present a complimentary view of the motion. For this work we generated transient beam events in SPEAR3 using the BxB feedback system and synchronously observed the motion on the camera. Results are presented for a high-order multibunch beam instability and for single bunch drive-damp experiments.

WEPB13 Beam-Gas Imaging Measurements at LHCb detector, luminosity, vacuum, injection 459
 
  • G.R. Coombs, M. Ferro-Luzzi, R. Matev
    CERN, Geneva, Switzerland
 
  The LHCb detector is one of the four large particle physics experiments situated around the LHC ring. The excellent spatial resolution of the experiment's vertex locator (VELO) and tracking system allows the accurate reconstruction of interactions between the LHC beam and either residual or injected gas molecules. These reconstructed beam-gas interactions gives LHCb the ability, unique among experiments, to measure the shape and the longitudinal distribution of the beams. Analysis methods were originally developed for the purpose of absolute luminosity calibration, achieving an unprecedented precision of 1.2% in Run I. They have since been extended and applied for online beam-profile monitoring that is continuously published to the LHC, for dedicated cross-calibration with other LHC beam profile monitors and for studies of the dynamic vacuum effects due to the proximity of the VELO subdetector to the beam. In this talk, we give an overview of the LHCb experience with beam-gas imaging techniques, we present recent results on the outlined topics and we summarise the developments that are being pursued for the ultimate understanding of the Run II measurements.

  We present recent results on non-invasive beam profile measurement techniques based on Diffraction Radiation (DR) and Cherenkov Diffraction Radiation (ChDR). Both methods exploit the analysis of broadband electromagnetic radiation resulting from polarization currents produced in, or at the boundary of, a medium in close proximity of a charged particle beam. To increase the resolution of DR, measurements were performed in the UV range at a wavelength of 250 nm. With such configurations, sensitivity to the beam size of a 1.2 GeV electron beam below 10 um was observed at the Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) at KEK, Japan. In the case of the ChDR, a proof of principle study was carried out at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR) where beam profiles were measured in 2017 on a 5.3 GeV positron beam. At the time of writing an experiment to measure the resolution limit of ChDR has been launched at ATF where smaller beam sizes are available. We will present experimental results and discuss the application of such techniques for future accelerators.

  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.

  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.

THOA01 Low vs High Level Programming for FPGA FPGA, interface, operation, software 527

  From their introduction in the eighties, Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have grown in size and performance for several orders of magnitude. As the FPGA capabilities have grown, so have the designs. It seems that current tools and languages (VHDL and (System)Verilog) do not match the complexity required for advanced digital signal processing (DSP) systems usually found in experimental physics applications. In the last couple of years several commercial High-Level Synthesis (HLS) tools have emerged, providing a new method to implement FPGA designs, or at least some parts of it. By providing a higher level of abstraction, new tools offer a possibility to express algorithms in a way which is closer to the mathematical description. Such implementation is understood by a broader range of people, and thus minimizes the documentation and communication issues. Several examples of DSP algorithms relevant for beam instrumentation will be presented. Implementations of these algorithms with different HLS tools and traditional implementation in VHDL will be compared.

  We present the recent developments of a study aiming at measuring the transverse beam profile using the Heterodyne Near Field Speckles (HNFS) method. The HNFS technique consists of a suspension of nanoparticles suspended in a liquid and illuminated by synchrotron radiation (either in the visible or in X-ray wavelength range). The transverse coherence of the source, and therefore, under the conditions of validity of the Van Cittert and Zernike theorem, the transverse electron beam size is retrieved from the interference between the transmitted beam and the spherical waves scattered by each nanoparticle. We here describe the fundamentals of this technique, as well as the recent experimental results obtained with 12 keV radiation at the NCD beamline at ALBA. The applicability of such technique for future accelerators (e.g. CLIC or FCC) is also discussed.
