The non-destructive and highly sensitive measurement of a charged particle beam is of utmost importance for modern particle accelerator facilities. A Cryogenic Current Comparator (CCC) can be used to measure beam currents in the nA-range. Therein, charged particles passing through a superconducting toroid induce screening currents at the surface of the toroid, which are measured via SQUIDs. Classical CCC beam monitors make use of a high magnetic permeability core as a flux-concentrator for the pickup coil. The core increases the pickup inductance and thus coupling to the beam, but unfortunately also raises low-frequency noise and thermal drift. In the new concept from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology the Coreless Cryogenic Current Comparator (4C) completely omits this core and instead uses highly sensitive SQUIDs featuring sub-micron cross-type Josephson tunnel junctions. Combined with a new shielding geometry a compact and comparably lightweight design has been developed, which exhibits a current sensitivity of about 6 pA/sqrt(Hz) in the white noise region and a measured shielding factor of about 134 dB*.

  At the free-electron lasers FLASH and European-XFEL bunch arrival times are monitored with a high-accuracy electro-optical based data acquisition system (BAM). Due to only a couple of picoseconds time measurement range of this system, large timing changes might cause the monitor to fail. To remove any ambiguity and for health status monitoring a high-speed direct-sampling FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) and an analogue RF front-end was added. The circuitry has lower precision than the electro-optical based BAM, but it can determine bunch arrival time with respect to a reference signal over a large time range, i.e. of the order of 1 ms. After restarts or larger energy changes during operation, the electron bunch arrival time may have been changed by tens or even hundreds of picoseconds, which causes that the BAM is out of its operation range and needs to be recalibrated. With the solution developed, the BAM gets the coarse bunch timing from the digitizer and adjusts its optical delay lines accordingly. This allows for finding the operation point fast and automatically. Performance data of the fast direct-sampling digitizer FMC and first measurement data from FLASH will be presented.

TUPP034 Analysis of Quadrupolar Measurements for Beam Size Determination in the LHC emittance, electron, electronics, synchrotron 392
 
  • D. Alves, M. Gąsior, T. Lefèvre

  Due to limitations with non-invasive beam size diagnostics in the LHC, particularly during the energy ramp, there has been an interest to explore quadrupolar-based measurements for estimating the transverse beam size, and hence determining the transverse emittance. This technique is especially attractive as it is completely passive and can use the existing beam position instrumentation. In this work, we perform an analysis of this method and present recent measurements taken during energy ramps. Quadrupolar-based measurements are compared with wire-scanner measurements and a calibration strategy is proposed to overcome present limitations.

Since 2016 a prototype electro-optic pickup has been installed on the SPS as part of the ongoing development of a high bandwidth electro-optic beam position monitor for the High Luminosity LHC. Following the success of initial beam signal observations with the prototype, improvements of the sensitivity and stability of the pickup have become the main focus of the project. A new concept has been developed which uses an interferometric technique to measure the image field of a passing bunch. One arm of an interferometer passes through an electro-optic lithium niobate crystal, embedded in a pickup, whereas the other arm bypasses. The recombination after the pickup results in an interference pattern that changes as a bunch passes by, due to the electro-optic response of the crystal to the image field. This technique enhances the sensitivity to the field and improves control of the working point. Results from high intensity beams at the SPS are presented. These include a comparison between two different interferometric configurations that were tested on different pickups with similar beam conditions. The stability is assessed by frequency scanning interferometry during beam operation.

  In order to measure the noise level of a BPM system from beam generated orbit data, the correlated beam jitter has to be removed from the position signals. There exist different ways to extract the BPM noise, as the "three-BPM" correlation method or the model-independent principal components analysis (PCA). Both methods will shortly be reviewed. Based on a PCA, the resolution of the PETRA III Libera Brilliance based BPM system was measured. The results will be presented together with first measurements in view of an updated BPM system for the future PETRA IV project at DESY.

The LIPAc accelerator is 9-MeV, 125-mA CW deuteron accelerator that aims to validate the technology that will be used in the future IFMIF accelerator (40-MeV, 2 x 125-mA CW). LIPAc is presently under beam commissioning of the second acceleration stage (injector and Radio Frequency Quadrupole) at 5 MeV. In this stage two types of BPM’s are used: four stripline-type to control the transverse position and phase at the Medium Energy Beam Transport line (MEBT), and three other stripline-type mainly for the precise measurements of the mean beam energy at the Diagnostics Plate. All the BPM’s have been successfully tested and served to increase the duty cycle and the average power of the beam delivered down to the beam dump. Moreover, the BPM’s were key devices for the transverse beam positioning and longitudinal beam tuning and validation of the RFQ and re-buncher cavities at the MEBT. In this contribution, an overview of the beam position monitors system installation and characterization in the facility will be reported. First tests of the system with the upgraded acquisition electronics for the next phase will be also presented.

  In the framework of the Spanish In-Kind Contribution (IKC) to the construction of the European Spallation Source (ESS-ERIC), ESS-Bilbao is in charge of providing some key systems for the accelerator. In this paper, design and pre-delivery measurements of non-interceptive devices of MEBT (e.g Beam Position Monitor pick-ups, shielded ACCT and FCT) are reported. Overall there are 8 BPMs distributed in MEBT, which 7 of them are used for the beam position and phase measurements and one BPM is used for the fast timing characterization. The latter is used mainly to characterize the partially chopped bunches and rise/fall time of the Beam Chopper. Furthermore there are two ACCTs, one just attached to the beam dump and the other at the last raft of the MEBT. One FCT combined with the second ACCT gives the complementary information on the fast timing characteristics of the beam pulses.

Numerous advanced applications of X-ray free-electron lasers require pulse durations and time resolutions in the order of only a few femtoseconds or better. The generation of these pulses to be used in time-resolved experiments require synchronization techniques that can simultaneously lock all necessary components to a precision in the range of a few fs only. The CW operated electron accelerator ELBE at the Helmholtzzentrum Dresden Rossendorf uses a all-optical synchronization system to ensure a timing stability on the few 10 fs scale. ELBE requires a minimum beam pipe diameter of 43mm that limits the achievable output voltage of the pickup structure to drive the attached electro-optical modulator. This contribution presents a concept for a novel high-bandwidth arrival time monitor with sufficient output signal for the attached EOMs for very low charges as a part of the all-optical synchronization system at ELBE.

  Requirements for diagnostics of injection matching and beam space charge effects have driven studies at CERN using high sensitivity tune measurement systems based on diode detectors for the observation of quadrupolar beam oscillations in the frequency domain. This has led to an extension of such tune systems to include a channel optimised for quadrupolar oscillation measurements. This paper presents the principles of such measurements, the developed hardware and example measurements.

  The CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) uses 215 beam position monitors (BPMs) to observe the beam orbit when accelerating protons or ions on a fast ramp cycle to beam energies of up to 450 GeV/c. In the frame of the CERN LHC Injector Upgrade (LIU) initiative the aged, and diffi- cult to maintain homodyne-receiver based BPM read-out system is currently being upgraded with A Logarithmic Po- sition System ’ ALPS. As the name indicates, this new BPM electronics builds upon the experience at CERN with using logarithmic detector amplifiers for beam position processing, and is well suited to cover the large range of beam intensities accelerated in the SPS. The system will use radiation toler- ant electronics located in close proximity to the split-plane or stripline beam position monitor with GB/s optical data transmission to the processing electronics located on the surface. Technical details of the analog and digital signal processing, the data transmission using optical fibers, cal- ibration and testing, as well as first beam tests on a set of ALPS prototypes are presented in this paper.
