  The SuperKEKB damping ring (DR) commissioning started in February 2018, before main ring (MR) Phase-II operation. We constructed the DR in order to deliver a low-emittance positron beam. The design luminosity of SuperKEKB is 40 times that of KEKB with high current and low emittance. A turn-by- turn beam position monitor (BPM), transverse feedback system, synchrotron radiation monitor (SRM), DCCT, loss monitor using ion chambers, bunch current monitor and tune meter were installed for beam diagnostics at the DR. An overview of the instrumentation and status will be presented.

  SEE testing of candidate electronic components for space applications is essential part of a spacecraft radiation hardness assurance process in terms of its operability in the harsh space radiation environment. The unique in Russia SEE test facilities have been created to provide SEE testing. The existing ion beam monitoring system has been presented at IBIC 2017, however, it has a number of shortcomings related to the lack of reliable online ion fluence measurement on the DUT, and inability to measure energies of the high-energy (15-60 MeV/nucleon) long-range (10-2000 µm) ions on the DUT. The paper presents the latest developments and their test results of the ISDE and JINR collaboration in the field of flux online monitoring (including, on the DUT) during tests using scintillation detectors based on flexible optical fibers, and measuring ion energies by the method of total absorption in the volume of scintillation or semiconductor detector. The modernization of the standard beam monitoring procedure during tests is proposed.

  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, electron, photon, experiment 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.

MOPB04 Progress in the Stripline Kicker for ELBE kicker, simulation, electron, laser 78
 
  • Ch. Schneider, A. Arnold, J. Hauser, P. Michel
    HZDR, Dresden, Germany
 
  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.

MOPB07 Beam Parameter Measurements for the J-PARC High-Intensity Neutrino Extraction Beamline proton, target, monitoring, extraction 85
 
  • M.L. Friend
    KEK, Ibaraki, Japan
 
  Proton beam monitoring is absolutely essential for the J-PARC neutrino extraction beamline, where neutrinos are produced by the collision of 30 GeV protons from the J-PARC MR accelerator with a long carbon target. Continuous beam monitoring is crucial for the stable and safe operation of the extraction line high intensity proton beam, since even a single misfired beam spill can cause serious damage to beamline equipment at 2.5x1014 and higher protons-per-pulse. A precise understanding of the proton beam intensity and profile on the neutrino production target is also necessary for predicting the neutrino beam flux with high precision. Details of the suite of monitors used to continuously and precisely monitor the J-PARC neutrino extraction line proton beam will be shown, including recent running experiences, challenges, and future upgrade plans.

  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 newly designed pulse-by-pulse X-ray beam position monitor (XBPM), which is photoemission type, has been demonstrated successfully in the SPring-8 synchrotron radiation beamline. Conventional XBPMs work in the direct-current (DC) mode, because it is difficult to measure a beam position in the pulse mode under the sever heat load condition. The key point of the design is aiming at improving heat-resistance property without degradation of high frequency property [1]. This monitor is equipped with microstripline structure for signal transmission line to achieve pulse-by-pulse beam position signal. A photocathode is titanium electrode that is sputtered on a diamond heat sink to achieve high heat resistance. We have manufactured the prototype, and demonstrated feasibility at the SPring-8 bending magnet beamline. As a result, we observed a unipolar single pulse with the pulse length of less than 1 ns FWHM and confirmed that it has pulse-by-pules position sensitivity [2]. Furthermore, this monitor can be also used in the direct-current mode with good stability and good resolution. The operational experience will be also presented.

  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.

  Nozzle is the core component in proton therapy machine, which is closest to the patient and is necessary to consider the radiation impacts on patients and machine. The ionization chamber and the range shifter in active scanning nozzle are the main devices in the beam path that affect the proton beam and produce secondary particles during the collision, causing damage to the patients and machine. In this paper, the spatial distribution of energy deposited in all regions, the distribution of the secondary particles of 70-250MeV proton beam in the nozzle in Huazhong University of Science and Technology Proton Therapy Facility(HUST-PTF) are studied with Monte Carlo software FLUKA in order to provide reference for radiation shielding design. Six types of materials commonly used today as range shifters are analyzed in terms of the influence on radiation, so that the most suitable material will be selected.

  Beam loss monitoring at the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source is primarily carried out with the use of gas ionisation chambers filled with argon. These chambers are 3 to 4m long and are positioned around the inside of the synchrotron as well as along the ISIS Linac and Extracted Proton Beamlines (EPBs). To achieve finer spatial resolution a programme has been implemented to install six scintillator Beam Loss Monitors (BLMs), each 300 mm long, inside each of the ten main dipole magnets. Using these scintillator BLMs the accelerator can be fine-tuned during set-up to reduce areas of beam loss that were previously unseen or hard to characterise. As the installation programme comes to an end, this paper will review: the installation of the scintillator BLMs, the electronic hardware and software used to control them, and the initial measurements that have been taken using them.

  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.

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.

  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.

WEPB01 Photon Beam Imager at SOLEIL undulator, vacuum, operation, insertion 425
 
  • M. Labat, J. Da Silva, N. Hubert, F. Lepage
    SOLEIL, Gif-sur-Yvette, France
 
  In one of the long straight sections of SOLEIL is installed a pair of canted in-vacuum undulators for the ANATOMIX and NANOSCOPIUM beamlines. Since the upstream undulator radiation can potentially damage the downstream undulator magnets, an accurate survey of the respective alignment of the two devices is mandatory. An XBPM has been initially installed for this purpose in the beamline frontend. For redundancy and further analysis, an X-ray imager was then designed and added just downstream the XBPM. It is made of a diamond plate that can be inserted into the upstream beamline frontend at low current. Fluorescence of the Nitrogen impurities in the diamond is imaged on a CCD to check that the upstream radiation is not hitting the downstream insertion device. We present the commissioning of this new device together with its first results in operation.

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.

  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.

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.

  A Beam Induced Fluorescence (BIF) monitor is being developed as an essential part of the monitor update toward MW beam power operation at the J-PARC neutrino beamline. By measuring the fluorescence light from proton-gas interactions, the BIF monitor will be used as a continuous and non-destructive diagnostic tool for monitoring the proton beam profile spill-by-spill, with position and width precision on the order of 200 µm. The main challenge lies in collecting a sufficient amount of fluorescence light for the beam profile reconstruction while controlling the beam-induced noise with the current beamline configuration. A study is presented with a particular focus on the optical system under development, which allows us to transport fluorescence light away from the high radiation environment near the proton beamline and detect the optical signal with a Multi-Pixel Photon-Counter-based fast readout.

  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.

  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.

  For the transport of RF signals coaxial cables with PTFE ('Teflon') as dielectric medium are widely used because they offer a wide bandwidth and low insertion loss. Coaxial cables that are routed in immediate vicinity to the beamline are exposed to ionizing radiation that is mainly generated by beam-loss. In this radiative environment cables change their electrical properties which directly affects the signal on the receiver side and in turn the measured beam parameters. This contribution describes a measurement setup at the superconducting CW accelerator ELBE that was used to investigate the degradation of coaxial cables under well-controlled conditions up to an accumulated dose of 94 kGy. Furthermore the acquired data up to 40 GHz of two coaxial cable samples are presented and the results are discussed.
