A GHz bandwidth vertical beam feedback system has been in development at the CERN SPS to explore control of unstable beam motion in single bunch and bunch train configurations. We present measurements and recent studies of stable and unstable motion for intensities up to 2x1011 p/bunch. The system has been operated at 3.2GS/s with 16 samples across a 5 ns RF bucket (4.2 ns 3 σ bunch at injection). Experimental results confirm damping of intra-bunch instabilities in Q20, Q22 and Q26 optics configurations. Instabilities with growth times of 200 turns are well-controlled from injection, consistent with the achievable gains for the 2 installed stripline kickers with 1 kW broadband total power. Studies of the damping achieved with the diagonal FIR controllers and existing system noise floors are highlighted to evaluate benefits of MIMO feedback controllers. The work is motivated by anticipated intensity increases from the LIU and HL-LHC upgrade programs, and has included the development of a new 1 GHz bandwidth slotline kicker structure and associated amplifier system

  The ALS-U is a major upgrade of the LBNL ALS to a diffraction limited light source. The current plan is to replace all the vacuum and magnet components while retaining the existing 500 MHz main and third-harmonic, passively operated, rf cavities, but replacement of the existing rf cavities is also being considered. A new feature, is represented by beam-loading transients associated with a beam consisting of 11 bunch trains separated by 10 ns gaps as needed to enable on-axis swap-out injection. In this paper we study these transients and the associated bunch-to-bunch phase, length, and profile variations.

The ALS-U conceptual design promises to deliver diffraction limited performance in the soft x-ray range by lowering the horizontal emittance to about 70 pm rad resulting in two orders of brightness increase for soft x-rays compared to the current ALS. The design utilizes a nine bend achromat lattice, with reverse bending magnets and on-axis swap-out injection utilizing an accumulator ring. This paper shows some aspects of the completed conceptual design of the accelerator, as well as some results of the R&D program that has been ongoing for the last years.
