  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.

  Current transformers (ACCT/DCCT) are used as non-interceptive means of beam current measurement in many accelerators. In the case of long pulse to CW accelerators for fusion neutron sources such as IFMIF, A-FNS, etc., current measurement using current transformers for pulses with around 10-100 ms or longer suffer such problems as drooping and the measurement accuracy is deteriorated. So, improving the accuracy for long pulse beams is highly required. We have proposed a method for retrieving the beam currents from the ACCT output using the transfer function obtainable from simple experiments. It was confirmed from numerical calculation that beam currents longer than a second could be theoretically retrieved*. The effects of associated circuits and cables such as stray capacitance, inductance and magnetic materials nearby are inherently included in the transfer function. We are working for implementing this method into FPGA. For calculation convenience, the transfer function is converted into a form of impulse function and the convolution with the digitized ACCT output is to be carried out to retrieve the beam current. The theory, algorithm and design will be discussed.

  In synchrotron facilities, X-ray beam position monitor (XBPM) is an important detector for photon beam position monitoring and must be calibrated to ensure reliability and precision. However, light source operating conditions, such as beam orbit, injection and insertion device parameters, etc., can influence the sensitivity and specific weighting of photoemission current from the XBPM diamond blades. In the Taiwan Photon Source (TPS), Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) was utilized to implant an automatic calibration process. By using EPICS, we can ensure a seamless integration between the different front ends (FEs) and direct all data stream into a centralized server, creating a distributed XBPM calibration system. The XBPM performance indicators are analyzed to evaluate the validity of calibration parameters by input/ output controller (IOC) in each FE computing system. This paper will discuss the benefits of implanting this distributed control system into a working environment such as the TPS.
