  • M. Krupa
    CERN, Geneva, Switzerland
 
  The High Luminosity LHC projects aims to increase the integrated luminosity of the LHC experiments by an order of magnitude. New and upgraded beam instrumentation is being developed to cope with much brighter beams and to provide the additional novel diagnostics required to assure safe and efficient operation under the new LHC configuration. This contribution discusses the various ongoing developments and reports on the results obtained with prototypes for transverse position, intra-bunch position, transverse size and profile, and beam halo monitoring.

  On December 2018 the ESRF was shut down and the 28 years old storage ring was entirely dismantled in the following months. A new storage ring, the Extremely Brilliant Source (EBS), that had been pre-assembled in 2017 and 2018, is presently being installed and the commissioning will start in December 2019. EBS will achieve a much reduced horizontal emittance, from 4 nm to 150 pm, and will also provide the X-ray users with a more coherent synchrotron radiation beam. In this paper, we present an overview of the diagnostics systems for this new storage ring.

MOCO03 Estimation of Longitudinal Profiles of Ion Bunches in the LHC Using Schottky-Based Diagnostics synchrotron, distributed, experiment, hadron 44
 
  • K. Łasocha, D. Alves
    CERN, Meyrin, Switzerland
 
  The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Schottky monitors have been designed to measure various parameters of relevance to beam quality, namely tune, momentum spread and chromaticity. We present another application of this instrument - the evaluation of longitudinal bunch profiles. The relation between the distribution of synchrotron amplitudes within the bunch population and the longitudinal bunch profile is derived from probabilistic principles. Our approach, limited to bunched beams with no intra-bunch coherent motion, initially fits the cumulative power spectral density of acquired Schottky spectra with the underlying distribution of synchrotron amplitudes. The result of this fit is then used to reconstruct the bunch profile using the derived model. The results obtained are verified by a comparison with measurements from the LHC Wall Current Monitors.

MOCO04 Overview of Bunch-Resolved Diagnostics for the Future BESSY VSR Electron-Storage Ring electron, timing, operation, storage-ring 49

  The upgrade of the BESSY II light source in Berlin towards the Variable pulse-length Storage-Ring BESSY VSR will lead to a complex fill pattern. This involves co-existing electron bunches with significant variations of bunch-length, bunch charge as well as charge density. Among many other boundary conditions, this calls for bunch resolved measurements with sub-ps time resolution and micrometer spatial resolution. Currently, we are constructing a diagnostic platform connected to three new dipole beamlines for visible light as well as THz measurements. The mid-term aim is a 24/7 use of beam-diagnostic tools and the development of advanced methods for specific purposes. Recently, we have set-up a sub-ps streak camera* and we are investigating other innovative methods for bunch-length** as well as lateral size determination using visible light*** at the first of our new diagnostic dipole beamlines. Preliminary results as well as our concepts for achieving high sensitivity, good signal-to-noise ratio and time resolution will be presented and discussed at the conference.

  New isochronous cyclotron DC-280, the basic facility of Super Heavy Element (SHE) factory was put into operation in the FLNR JINR on March 25, 2019. Key role in beam diagnostics for lossless transportation is played by Faraday cups. Five elements were installed along the two injection lines, and 12 elements on the five transport channels to the experimental facilities. The software was developed to automatically select the active Faraday cup depending on its location and track the current on a single indicator. This paper describes basic principles and algorithm of the Faraday cup Selector module which is a part of the DC-280 cyclotron control system.

  Uniquely short high energy electron bunches produced by compact Laser Wakefield Accelerators (LWFA) are attractive for the development of new generation Free Electron Lasers (FEL). Although the beam quality of LWFA is still significantly lower than provided by conventional accelerators, with persistent progress seen in the area of laser plasma acceleration, they have a great potential to be considered the new generation drivers for FELs and even colliders. A new LWFA based FEL project called "LUIS" is currently being commissioned at ELI-beamlines in Czech Republic. LUIS aims to demonstrate a stable generation of X-ray photons with a wavelengths of 6 nm and lower, suitable for user applications. Electron beam diagnostics are absolutely crucial for achieving LUIS’s aims. Low charge, poor beam stability and other beam properties inherent for a LWFA require rethinking and adaptation of the conventional diagnostic tools and, in some cases, development of new ones. In this paper we provide an overview of the electron beam instrumentation in LUIS with a focus on the current challenges and some discussion of the foreseen future developments.

  At present the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) is under construction at the GSI site. As part of the FAIR project the beamlines of the High Energy Beam Transport (HEBT) section interconnect the synchrotrons, storage rings and experimental caves. The large range of beam energies (MeV to GeV) and beam intensities up to 1012 particles per pulse for uranium, or up to 2·1013 particles per pulse for protons, demand in many cases for purpose-built beam diagnostic devices. Presently, the main diagnostic components are being manufactured by international in-kind partners in close collaboration with GSI. This contribution presents an overview of the beam instrumentation layout of the FAIR HEBT and summa-rizes the present status of developments for HEBT beam diagnostics. We focus on the status of the foreseen beam current transformers, particle detectors, scintillating screens and profile grids.

  A dedicated proton injector for FAIR (the pLinac) is presently under construction at GSI Darmstadt. This accelerator is designed to deliver a beam current of up to 70 mA with a final energy of 68 MeV for the FAIR anti-proton program. For the commissioning of the pLinac a movable beam diagnostics test bench will be used to characterize the proton beam at different locations during the stepwise installation. The test bench will consist of all relevant types of diagnostic devices as BPM’s, ACCT’s, SEM grids, a slit-grid emittance device and a bunch shape monitor. Moreover, a magnetic spectrometer is supposed to measure the energy spread of the proton beam. Point-to-point imaging is foreseen to enable high energy resolution independently on the transverse emittance. Due to the limited space in the accelerator tunnel a special design must be chosen with the inclusion of quadrupole magnets. The present contribution gives an overall presentation of the test bench and its devices with a special emphasis on the magnetic spectrometer design.

In the frame of the material research for future fusion reactors, the construction of a simplified version of the IFMIF plant, the so-called DONES (Demo-Oriented Neutron Early Source), is under preparatory phase to allow materials testing with sufficient radiation damage for the new design of DEMO. The DONES accelerator system will deliver a deuteron beam at 40 MeV, 125 mA. The 5 MW beam will impact onto a lithium flow target to form an intense neutron source. One of the most critical tasks of the accelerator is the beam diagnostics along high energy beam transport, especially in the high radiation areas close to the lithium target. This instrumentation is essential to provide the relevant data for ensuring the high availability of the whole accelerator system, the beam characteristics and machine protection. Of outmost importance is the control of the beam characteristics impinging on the lithium curtain. Several challenging diagnostics are being designed and tested for that purpose. This contribution will report the present status of the design of the beam diagnostics, focusing on the high radiation areas of the high energy beam transport line.

TUAO01 Beam Diagnostics for Studying Beam Losses in the LHC detector, beam-losses, proton, collimation 223
 
  • B. Salvachua
    CERN, Meyrin, Switzerland
 
  The LHC is well covered in terms of beam loss instrumentation. Close to 4000 ionisation chambers are installed to measure global beam losses all around the LHC ring, and diamond detectors are placed at specific locations to measure bunch-by-bunch losses. Combining the information of these loss detectors with that from additional instrumentation, such as current transformers, allows for enhanced understanding and control of losses. This includes a fast and reliable beam lifetime calculation, the identification of the main origin of the loss (horizontal or vertical betatron motion or off-momentum), or a feedback to perform controlled off-momentum loss maps to validate the settings of the collimation system. This paper describes the diagnostic possibilities that open up when such measurements from several systems are combined.
This is proposed as an Invited presentation from CERN Beam Instrumentation Group.

  Elettra 2.0 is the project of upgrading the current synchrotron light source to a low emittance machine. In this framework, various components of diagnostics have to be refurbished due to the obsolescence of the same or due to the tight requirements of the new accelerator. In this paper we present a high performance FPGA-based (Altera/Intel Arria 10) digital board developed internally, capable of hosting two FMC modules, equipped with DDR3 ram and 10 Gb/s Ethernet links. The presence of the FMC connectors allows a flexible use of the board: various configurations of A/D and D/A converters (different number of channels, resolution, sampling rate) can be obtained, also with various I/O ports for trigger and synchronisation. These features make it applicable as a base platform for various applications not only for Elettra (electron and photon BPMs, DLLRF systems, etc.) but also for Fermi (cavity BPMs, bunch arrival monitor, link stabiliser). The peripherals on board have been fully debugged, and probably a new version with a SoC (System on Chip) will be released in the next future.

TUPP011 Observation of Scintillators Charging Effects at the European XFEL FEL, electron, operation, site 303

  Scintillating screens are widely used for beam profile diagnostics at various kinds of particle accelerators. At modern linac based electron machines with ultrashort bunches as the European XFEL in Hamburg (Germany), scintillators help to overcome the limitation of standard OTR based monitors imposed by the emission of coherent radiation. The XFEL injector section is equipped with four off-axis screens allowing to perform online beam profile diagnostics, i.e. a single bunch out of a bunch train is kicked onto the screen and the profile is analyzed. However, during user operation a decrease of the SASE level was observed in cases that one of the of-axis screens was used. The observation is explained by charging of the scintillator screen: each deflected bunch hitting the screens causes ionization and charging of the screen. The scintillator as good insulator keeps the charge for some time such that the non-deflected part of the bunch-train feels their Coulomb force and experiences a kick, resulting in a drop of the SASE level. This report summarizes the observations at the European XFEL and introduces a simple model for quantification of this effect.

  Precise measurement and control of the particle beam emittance is a very important input to characterize the performance of any accelerator/SRS. Beam characterizations at the SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre are provided by two independent diagnostic beamlines called the X-ray synchrotron radiation (PINHOLE) and optical synchrotron radiation (LUMOS) beamlines, respectively. The PINHOLE beamline depicts the electron beam by analyzing the emitted X-rays. However this method is predominantly applied to the middle and high energy storage rings. At Solaris storage ring with the nominal energy of 1.5 GeV and critical photon beam energy of c.a. 2 keV, the design of the beamline was modified to provide sufficient X-ray photon flux for proper imaging. Second diagnostic beamline LUMOS will be installed and commissioned in next few months. Issues discussed include the general design philosophy, choice of instrumentation, limits to resolution, and actual performance.

Cameras can be a very useful accelerator diagnostic, particularly because an image of the beam distribution can be quickly interpreted by human operators, and increasingly can serve as an input to machine learning algorithms. We present an implementation of digital cameras for triggered photon diagnostics at the Advanced Photon Source using the areaDetector framework in the Experimental Physics and Industrial Controls System. Beam size measurements from the synchrotron light monitors in the Particle Accumulator Ring using the new architecture are presented.

  Wire scanners are robust devices for beam characterization in accelerator facilities. However, prolonged usage with intense particle beams leads to wire damage, requiring replacement and beam diagnostic downtime. The fast, robust wire scanner was recently designed and engineered with swappable and modular wire cards, that can accommodate different wire materials under tension. Testing is currently underway at the Jefferson Laboratory (JLab) Low Energy Recirculating Facility. During the course of the diagnostic development and commissioning, we will test Tungsten, Carbon, and boron-nitride nanotube in wire form. The latter is particularly relevant as early results on the material show that it has very high thermal thresholds and may withstand the high-power of the beam during regular operations. This paper will report on the system design and engineering, and preliminary results with operation on the beamline.

  In proton therapy facility, non-destructive beam diagnostic devices are essential for on-line measurement during the patient treatment. To meet the clinical requirement, the beam current becomes ultra-low of the order of nano-ampere, which is a great challenge to non-destructive beam diagnostics because of the extremely low signal level. Compared with conventional non-destructive beam diagnostic devices, the cavity beam position monitor (BPM) has a high shunt impedance to get enough power levels, so a cavity BPM system is designed for HUST-PTF. It is made up of two resonant cavities called reference cavity and position cavity, respectively. Both cavities are simulated and optimized by CST Microwave Studio and Particle Studio. Finally, the electronics of cavity BPM we plan to use is shown.

  Cherenkov Diffraction Radiation (ChDR), appearing when a charged particle moves in the vicinity of a dielectric medium with speed faster than the speed of light inside the medium, is a phenomenon that can be exploited for a range of non-invasive beam diagnostics. By using dielectric radiators that emit photons when in proximity to charged particle beams, one can design devices to measure beam properties such as position, direction and size. The Booster To Storage-ring (BTS) test stand at Diamond Light Source provides a 3 GeV electron beam for diagnostics research. A new vessel string has been installed to allow the BTS test stand to be used to study ChDR diagnostics applicable for both hadron and electron accelerators. This paper will discuss the commissioning of the BTS test stand, as well as exploring the initial results obtained from the ChDR monitor.

The need for single-shot diagnostics of the periodic longitudinal density modulation of relativistic electrons at the resonant wavelength (microbunching) in a free-electron laser (FEL) or at broadband visible wavelengths as in a laser-driven plasma accelerator (LPA) has been reaffirmed. In the self-amplified spontaneous emission (SASE) FEL case, statistical fluctuations in the microbunching occur in the startup-from-noise process. In the LPA, the plasma itself is chaotic and varies shot to shot. Fortunately, we have shown that coherent optical transition radiation (COTR) techniques, can assess beam size, divergence, spectral evolution, and z-dependent gain (100, 000) of microbunched electrons in a past SASE FEL experiment at 530 nm*. Recently, the application to LPAs has been demonstrated with single-shot near-field (NF) and far-field (FF) COTR imaging done at the exit of an LPA for the first time**. In this case few-micron beam sizes and extensive fringes due to sub-mrad divergences were measured based on point-spread-function effects and an analytical model for COTR interferometry, respectively. A proposed diagnostics application at 266 nm to pre-bunched beams is also described.

  The Institute for Applied Physics (IAP) of Goethe University Frankfurt has a long history in developing DTL-cavities and further essential components of particle accelerators from design and simulation up to tuning and final testing. In recent times, the development of beam diagnostic components for the hadron accelerator projects has become increasingly important. Bevatech is designing and setting up linear accelerators, RF and vacuum technology for research laboratories and enterprises worldwide. In a joint effort a simple, efficient and mobile beam position monitor (BPM) test bench has been developed and will be further improved for future tests and the calibration of beam position monitors. It is fully automated using single-board computers and microcontrollers to obtain the essential calibration data like electrical offset, button sensitivity and the 2D response map. In addition, initial tests with the implementation and evaluation of the Libera signal processing units Single Pass H and Spark were promising.

  During the last three years, the emission of Cherenkov Diffraction Radiation (ChDR), appearing when a relativistic charged particle moves in the vicinity of a dielectric medium, has been investigated with the aim of providing non-invasive beam diagnostics. ChDR has very interesting properties, with a large number of photons emitted in a narrow and well-defined solid angle, providing excellent conditions for detection with very little background. This contribution will present a collection of recent beam measurements performed at several facilities such as the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, the Advanced Test Facility 2 at KEK, the Diamond light source in the UK and the CLEAR test facility at CERN. Those results, complemented with simulations, suggest that the use of both incoherent and coherent emission of Cherenkov diffraction radiation could open up new beam instrumentation possibilities for relativistic charged particle beams.

We report on the application of machine learning (ML) methods for predicting the longitudinal phase space (LPS) distribution of particle accelerators. Our approach consists of training a ML-based virtual diagnostic to predict the LPS using only nondestructive linac and e-beam measurements as inputs. We validate this approach with a simulation study for the FACET-II linac and with an experimental demonstration conducted at LCLS. At LCLS, the e-beam LPS images are obtained with a transverse deflecting cavity and used as training data for our ML model. In both the FACET-II and LCLS cases we find good agreement between the predicted and simulated/measured LPS profiles, an important step towards showing the feasibility of implementing such a virtual diagnostic on particle accelerators in the future.
