  Contributions of different machine elements of the proposed Future Circular Collider (FCC-hh) impedance budget are calculated based on beam stability considerations. For each element (the beamscreen, the collimators, etc), effective impedances are calculated at the injection energy and at the collision energy for considered instabilities. The considered instabilities include the transverse coupled bunch instability (TCBI) and the transverse mode coupling instability (TMCI). Limitations to each total effective impedance are estimated and the critical points in the impedance budget are determined.

The HL-LHC prototype crab-cavities are installed in the CERN SPS, which will allow for a comprehensive beam test with high energy protons for the first time. As the time available for experimental beam dynamics studies with the crab cavities installed in the machine will be limited, a very good preparation is required. One of the main concerns is the induced emittance growth, driven by phase amplitude jitter in the crab cavities. In this respect, several machine development (MD) studies were performed during the past years to quantify and characterize the long term emittance evolution of proton beams in the SPS. In these proceedings, the experimental observations from past years are summarized and the MD studies from 2016 and 2017 are presented.

  DAΦNE, the Frascati lepton collider working at the c.m. energy of the F resonance, continues to be a very suitable infrastructure to realize experiments aimed at studying elementary particles and nuclear physics. The motivations of this long lasting interest are related to the DAΦNE ability of increasing its performances in terms of luminosity thanks to the innovative Crab-Waist collision scheme. In this framework, a new run for the SIDDHARTA-2 experiment has been planned in the year 2019. The detector presently installed in the interaction region, KLOE-2, will be removed and a new low-beta session, equipped with new permanent magnets quadrupoles, will be installed. Diagnostics tools will be improved especially the ones used to keep under control the beam-beam interaction. The horizontal feedback in the positron ring will be potentiated in order to achieve a higher positron current. The design and development work done in view of the SIDDHARTA-2 run is presented and discussed.

Non-uniform bunch fill patterns in storage rings, driven by the need to provide gaps for beam aborting and ion clearing cause a large beam loading change in the RF cavities. The induced turn-periodic transient in the cavity voltage modulates longitudinal beam properties along the train, such as synchronous position and bunch length. In the EIC design, due to the asymmetric bunch train structure between the electron and the ion beam, such modulation results in shifting collision point and leads to reduced luminosity. We have carried out the beam based experiments at BEPC-II and ALS using bunch-by-bunch diagnostic capabilities of the coupled-bunch feedback systems to study this transient effect. A modulated bunch filling pattern with higher charge density around the gap has been demonstrated to be effective in partially compensating this transient modulation. Details of the experimental setups and the data analysis will be presented to this conference.

Thermionic energy converters (TEC) are an attractive technology for modular, efficient transfer of heat to electrical energy. The steady-state dynamics of a TEC are a function of the emission characteristics of the cathode and anode, an array of intra-gap electrodes and dielectric structures, and the self-consistent dynamics of the electrons in the gap. Proper modeling of these devices requires self-consistent simulation of the electron interactions in the gap. We present results from simulations of these devices using the particle-in-cell code Warp, developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. We consider the role of individual energy loss mechanisms in reducing device efficiency, including kinetic losses, radiative losses, and dielectric charging. We discuss the implementation of an external circuit model to provide realistic feedback. Lastly, we illustrate the potential to use nonlinear optimization to maximize the efficiency of these devices by examining grid transparency.

  The J-PARC Main Ring (MR) is being upgraded to improve its beam power to the design goal of 750 kW. One important way is to reduce the repetition period from 2.48 s to 1.3 s so that the beam power can be nearly doubled. We need to improve the septum magnets for fast extraction. We are improving the magnets and their power supplies. The present magnets which are conventional type have problem in durability of septum coil by its vibration, and large leakage field at the flange of the beam duct. The new magnets are eddy current type. The eddy current type does not have septum coil, but has a thin plate. We expect that there is no problem in durability, we can construct the thin septum plate, the leakage field can be reduced. The output of the present power supply are pattern current which of flat top is 10 ms width, the new one is short pulse which of one is 10 us. The short pulse consists of 1st and 3rd higher harmonic. We can expect that the flatness and reproducibility of flat top current can be improved. The calorific power can be also reduced. This paper will report the performance of the power supply and its magnetic field with the eddy septum magnet systems.

  The Advanced Photon Source (APS) is currently in the preliminary design phase for a multi-bend acromat (MBA) lattice upgrade. Beam stability is critical where the requirements are driven from the beam size which is expected to approach 4 microns vertically at the insertion device (ID) source points. AC rms beam stability requirements are defined as 10 % the minimum source size at the ID in the band 0.01-1000 Hz. The vertical plane stability goal is the most ambitious requiring a stability of 400 nm at the ID source point. In addition, long term drift defined as motion over a seven day timescale can be no more than 1 micron. In order to achieve these demanding beam stability requirements, a suite of beam diagnostics will be required including rf BPMs, X-ray BPMs, a mechanical motion measurement system, beam size monitors and a real time orbit feedback system. In addition, a tune measurement system, transverse multi-bunch feedback system and current monitors are planned for the upgrade. We report on the beam diagnostics design and APS storage ring R&D results used to inform the design.

  The transverse mode coupling instability (TMCI) in the SPS has been identified as one of the potential performance limitations for future high intensity LHC beams that will be required for the High Luminosity (HL)-LHC era and is being addressed by the LHC Injector Upgrade Project (LIU). A potential mitigation can be provided by wideband feedback systems with a frequency reach of about 1 GHz . For this reason, the development of a prototype system has been started in a CERN collaboration within the US-LARP framework in 2008. In this report we present latest experimental results in 2017 where this prototype system was used in single and multi-bunch studies. In particular, a successful mitigation against TMCI at injection could be demonstrated in single bunch studies.

  A system of three low-Q cavity beam position monitors (BPMs), installed in the interaction point (IP) region of the Accelerator Test Facility (ATF2) at KEK, has been designed and optimised for nanometre-level beam position resolution. The BPMs are used to provide an input to a low-latency, intra-train beam position feedback system deployed in single-pass, multi-bunch mode with the aim of demonstrating intra-train beam stabilisation on electron bunches of charge ~1 nC separated in time by 280 ns. In 2016 the BPM resolution was demonstrated to be below 50 nm using the raw measured vertical positions at the three BPMs. New results will be presented utilising integrated sampling of the raw waveforms, improved BPM alignment and modified cavities to demonstrate a vertical position resolution on the order of 20 nm.

Linac-based system for borehole logging exploits KlyLac approach combing klystron and linac sharing the same electron beam, vacuum volume, and RF network enabling self-oscillation due to a positive feedback. The KlyLac prototype design tailors delivering ~1 MeV electrons in a linac section using part of the beam injected from a sheet beam klystron (SBK). The linac part is based on a very robust, high group velocity, cm-wave, and a standing wave accelerating structure of a 'cross-pin' type supplied by a sampler. The SBK part features a permanent magnet solenoid focusing, relatively low voltage, and high aspect ratio beam. The main SBK characteristics (perveance, power, and efficiency) are expected to be similar to that for a magnetron.

Over the past year, the storage ring performance continuously improved, including frequency feedback and photon local feedback. Machine reliability reached 96.9% for 4500 hrs operation with beam current upto 350 mA. Beam orbit short and long term stability has been significantly improved. Operation beam emittance were optimized with beamlines.

  To realize the full benefits of the high brightness and ultra-small beam sizes of NSLS-II, it is essential that the photon beams are exceedingly stable (a level of 10% beam size). In the circumstances of implementing local bumps, changing ID gaps, and long-term drifting, the fast orbit feedback (FOFB) requires shifting the fast corrector strengths to the slow correctors to prevent the fast corrector saturation and to make the beam orbit stable in the sub-micron level. As the result, a reliable and precise technique of fast-to-slow corrector strength shift has been developed and tested at NSLS-II. This technique is based on the fast corrector response to the slow corrector change when the FOFB is on. In this article, the shift technique is described and the result of proof-of-principle experiment carried out at NSLS-II is presented. The maximum fast corrector current was reduced from greater than 0.45 A to less than 0.04 A with the orbit perturbation within ±1 μm. Especially when the step size of the shift was below 0.012 A, the amount of noise being added to the beam was none.

TUPMF084 Optimization of the Injection Kicker Bump Leakage at PETRA III kicker, injection, septum, electron 1467

  PETRA III is a third generation synchrotron light source at DESY delivering high brightness photon beams for users at 21 beam lines. It is operated at 6 GeV with a beam current of 100 mA in top-up mode and is in operation for users since 2010. An off-axis injection scheme is used to accumulate beam from the booster synchrotron DESY II in PETRA III. Three fast injection kicker magnets generate a closed orbit bump for one turn to move the stored beam near to the injection septum magnet. Ideally the orbit bump generated by the 10 µs long half-sine pulses of the kickers should be closed. Due to differences in pulse shape as well as timing and amplitude errors of the pulses there is some leakage of the injection bump which disturbs the closed orbit and affects the beam quality during top-up operation. Turn-by-turn data from the beam position monitor (BPM) system of PETRA III have been used to measure the bump leakage for different bucket positions in the filling pattern. The procedure to reduce the injection kicker bump leakage and the achieved improvement will be discussed.

During high current operation at NSLS-II storage ring, vertical beam size spikes have been noticed. The spikes are believed due to ion instability associates with vacuum activities localized in the ring. A new tool has been developed using gated BPM turn-by-turn (TBT) data to detect beam centroid glitches. When one turn orbit deviates outside the predefined window, a global event will be generated. This allows synchronized data acquisition of TBT beam positions around the ring. Bunch by bunch data is acquired at the same time to analyze the possible coupled bunch instabilities (CBI). Besides CBI mainly due to ion bursts, fast orbit glitches have been captured with the new tool. Sources of the glitches can be identified.

Transverse bunch-by-bunch (BxB) feedback system has been constructed and in operation since the very beginning of NSLS-II storage ring commissioning. As the total beam current continues increasing in the past years, the system has been operating stable and reliable. Advanced BxB diagnostic functions have been developed using the system. Continuous tune measurement is realized with a diagnostic single bunch. Coupled bunch instability growth rate is able to be measured with the transient excitation. The BxB feedback system is also capable to excite a small fraction of total bunches for lattice measurement during high current operations. We present the most recent developments and operation experience on the BxB feedback system at NSLS-II.

  The SPEAR3 timing system supplies a 10Hz trigger pulse synchronous with charge injection into the main storage ring. In the past the 10Hz pulse train has been used to study injected charge transients as seen by visible-light synchrotron radiation diagnostics and turn-by-turn BPMs. More recently the 10Hz pulse has been used to synchronize the bunch-by-bunch feedback data acquisition system with other triggered diagnostic systems. The suite of measurement systems can be used to study injected beam dynamics, grow/damp instability transients and drive/damp physics.

  Recently a transverse bunch-by-bunch feedback kicker was installed in SPEAR3 to control beam instabilities, remove unwanted satellite bunches and test resonant bunch excitation schemes for short pulse x-ray production. In conjunction with DIMTEL processing electronics, the feedback system can successfully stabilize undesirable beam modes and opens up the potential for more advanced investigations of bunch-by-bunch beam dynamics. To streamline the process, a graphical user interface was developed that allows the user to 'script' beam physics measurements from a single panel. At the press of a button the panel automatically downloads the measurement parameters, acquires the raw data and provides graphical displays of the beam response with calculated metadata. In this paper we present the interface format and examples of automated measurements.

  For the future hadron Collider (FCC-hh) being studied at CERN a strong transverse feedback system is required to damp coupled bunch instabilities. This system is also planned to be used for injection damping. Based on the LHC transverse feedback design we derive requirements for power and kick strength for this system for the different options of bunch spacing, 25 ns and 5 ns, and injection energy. Operation at high gain and close to a half integer tune is being considered and constrains the layout and signal processing. Requirements for the pick-up resolution are derived from the need to keep the emittance increase small. The performance is evaluated using numerical simulations based on the headtail code. Future areas of research and development and possible prototype developments are outlined.

Building on the success of our 4GSa/s wideband trans-verse feedback system, we have begun development of a next generation ultra-wideband feedback processor which doubles the effective sampling rate to 8GSa/s. This higher sampling rate and proportional increase in analog band-width enable enhanced flexibility and diagnostics for accelerator transverse feedback such as control of higher-order modes, more detailed diagnostic information, im-proved SNR and two channel processing of total charge and orbit signals, with multiple pickups. Though targeted for ongoing transverse intra-bunch instability studies at the CERN SPS with a 1.7ns bunch length, the increased performance paves the way for instability control and diagnostics applications for other machines such as the HL-LHC and FCC. This paper discusses the beginning development process including an evaluation of the high-est speed AtoD and DtoA data converter devices at time of this writing and selection of the devices used in our design. It then describes the architecture of the full 8GSa/s prototype feedback processor and the design approach, which involves using both custom and commercial components enabling rapid and flexible development.

  Vector rf voltage feedback control for the wideband magnetic alloy cavity of the J-PARC RCS is considered to be employed to compensate the heavy beam loading caused by high intensity proton beams. A prototype system of multiharmonic rf vector voltage control has been developed and is under testing. To characterize the system performance, full rf simulations could be performed by software like Simulink, while the software is proprietary and expensive. Also, it requires much computing power and time. We performed the simplified baseband simulations of the system in z-domain by using free software, Scilab and Python control library. It seems to be beneficial for searching the parameters that the baseband simulation can be performed quickly. In this presentation, we present the setup and results of the simulations. The simulations well reproduce the open and closed loop responses of the prototype system.

  A low-latency, intra-train feedback system employing cavity beam position monitors (BPMs) has been developed and tested at the Accelerator Test Facility (ATF2) at KEK. The feedback system can be operated with either position information from a single BPM to provide local beam stabilisation, or by using position information from two BPMs to stabilise the beam at an intermediate location. The correction is implemented using a stripline kicker and a custom power amplifier, with the feedback calculations being performed on a digital board built around a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The addition of indium sealing to the BPMs to increase the cavities' Q-values has led to improvements to the BPM system resolution, with current measurements of the resolution of order 20 nm. The feedback performance was tested with beam trains of two bunches, separated by 280 ns and with a charge of ~1 nC. For single- (two-)BPM feedback, stabilisation of the beam has been demonstrated to below 50 nm (41 nm). Ongoing work to improve the feedback performance further will be discussed.

  The SuperKEKB e+ e- collider uses highly focused ultra-low emittance bunches colliding every 4 ns to reach a very high luminosity of 8× 1035 cm-2s-1. It is quite essential to have an orbit feedback system at the Interaction Point (IP) to maintain the optimum overlap between the colliding beams in the presence of ground motion disturbances. For the horizontal motion, a luminosity monitoring system, based on measuring the rate of the Bhabha process at vanishing scattering angle, is developed as input signal to the feedback system. The relative precision needed for this monitor is studied in detail, for the different successive stages of luminosity operation, based on a full simulation of this system, including the detector, DAQ, lock-in amplifier, and feedback control.

A new digital low-level RF system was designed and has been deployed on the drift-tube-linac section of the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center(LANSCE) proton accelerator. This new system is part of a modernization of the existing analog cavity-field controls that were originally developed and put into service forty-five years ago. For stabilization of the cavity field amplitude and phase during beam loading, a proportional-integral feedback controller, a static beam feedforward controller, and an iterative learning controller working in parallel have been implemented. In this paper, the controller architecture is described, and the performances of the three controllers when beam is being actively accelerated is presented.

  As DLLRF control system designs for SRF cavities have greatly matured and the FPGA technology has im-proved as well, it is possible now to think about incorporating dynamic signal analysis (DSA). Implementation of a DSA in the FPGA is desired to study the frequency response of the open/closed loop gain in a SRF system. Open loop gain is useful to observe the stability of a SRF system while closed loop gain can be applied to investi-gate the operational bandwidth of the system feedback and also to configure the performance of a PID controller. The DSA function was confirmed by analyzing the frequency response of a digital filter and the results of the analysis will be compared with MATLAB simulations.

WEPAL059 Observation and Suppression of Beam Orbit Drift Due to Path Length Changes and Thermal Effect in TPS site, controls, operation, electron 2313

  Tidal effect, ambient temperature fluctuation and other effects of the TPS site can cause the path length changes of the electron beam in the TPS storage ring. Off-energy orbit drifts from the path length change, if not varying the RF frequency, cannot be properly corrected by the horizontal correctors and this causes the fast orbit feedback system over its normal working range. RF frequency adjustment loop is therefore applied to compensate for the circumference change based on the accumulating corrector strengths of the fast orbit feedback system. Implementation and operational experiences will be discussed in the report.

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 results of the vertical tests performed at LASA on the 3.9 GHz third-harmonic cavities for the E-XFEL injector are here discussed. Analysis of experimental data allows to confirm that such high frequency cavity, prepared with standard BCP treatment and 800°C annealing treatment, suffers an intrinsic performance limitation at around 22 MV/m (@ 2 K) due to a global thermal dissipation mechanism. A quantitative interpretation of the high field Q slope is also presented according to the latest theoretical models of field-dependent surface resistance.

  For the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) 14 ferrite loaded accelerating RF stations are planned for the first stage of realization of the SIS100 synchrotron. Each RF station has to provide a total peak gap voltage of up to 20 kVp in CW operation - tuneable in the range of 1.1 MHz up to 3.2 MHz to allow ion beam acceleration and beam gymnastics at different harmonic numbers and energy levels in the new facility. Each RF station consists of a tuneable ferrite cavity, a single ended tetrode amplifier and a dedicated power supply and control unit (PSU) ' including two bias current supplies for cavity- and control-grid(G1)-circuit-tuning. The ferrite cavity is based on the SIS18 cavity concept but has to provide a 1.25 times higher gap voltage of 20 kVp over a total length of 3 meters. The realization is done by a consortium consisting of RI Research Instruments GmbH as consortium leader and manufacturer of the cavity, Ampegon PPT GmbH (for the tetrode amplifier) and Ampegon AG (for the power supply unit). In this contribution, the system design is discussed, and commissioning results are presented. All main parameters are achieved with the RF station described.

  After decades of successful operation as a 7-GeV synchrotron radiation source, the Advanced Photon Source is pursing a major upgrade that involves replacement of the storage ring with an ultra-low emittance multi-bend achromat design. Using a seven-bend hybrid multi-bend achromat with reverse bending magnets gives a natural emittance of 42 pm operated at 6 GeV. The x-ray brightness is predicted to increase by more than two orders of magnitude. Challenges are many, but appear manageable based on thorough simulation and in light of the experience gained from world-wide operation of 3\text{rd}-generation light sources. The upgraded ring will operate in swap-out mode, which has allowed pushing the performance beyond the limits imposed by conventional operation.

  Particle accelerators are being designed and operated over a wide range of complex beam phase space distributions. For example, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) upgrade, LCLS-II, is considering complex schemes such as two-color operation [1], while the plasma wake field acceleration facility for advanced accelerator experimental tests (FACET) upgrade, FACET-II, is planning on providing custom tailored current profiles [2]. Because of uncertainty due to limited diagnostics and time varying performance, such as thermal drifts, as well as collective effects and the complex coupling of large numbers of components, it is impossible to use simple look up tables for parameter settings in order to quickly switch between widely varying operating ranges. Several forms of artificial intelligence are currently being investigated in order to enable accelerators to quickly and automatically re-adjust component settings without human intervention. In this work we discuss recent progress in applying neural networks and adaptive feedback algorithms to enable automatic accelerator tuning and optimization.

  Several options of low resistivity coating have been proposed for the collimator upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider. In order to study their effect on the beam dynamics a special collimator has been built and installed in the machine. Its jaws are coated with three different materials and can be moved transversely to selectively expose the beam to the chosen coating. We have measured the resistive wall tune shifts of each coating material and compared them with that of a standard Carbon Fibre Composite (CFC) collimator jaw. A resolution of the tune shift of the order of 10-5 has been achieved in the measurement. The results show a significant reduction of the resistive wall tune shift with novel materials. The largest improvement is obtained with a 5 μm Molybdenum coating of a Molybdenum-Graphite jaw. The observed tune shifts show a good agreement with the impedance model and the bench impedance and resistivity measurements. Obtained results can be used to further improve the precision of the impedance model.

  Three questions motivated this study for the CERN Large Hadron Collider in terms of beam stability: (i) why a chromaticity close to zero seemed more critical than predicted during Run 1 (in 2011 and 2012) and during Run 2 (in 2015)?; (ii) why some past simulations with a chromaticity close to zero revealed a more critical situation with the transverse damper than without?; (iii) what should be the minimum operational chromaticity in the future in the LHC and High-Luminosity LHC? A new Vlasov solver (called GALACTIC) was developed to shed light on the destabilising mechanism of the transverse damper, which is a potential contributor to explain the LHC observation. Due to the features, which are discussed in this paper, the name 'ISR (for Imaginary tune Split and Repulsion) instability' is suggested for this new kind of single-bunch instability with zero chromaticity.

Pros and cons of the various methods are compared and an optimum operational scenario to guarantee the maximum stability is proposed.

  Collective beam instabilities could limit the accelerator performance if proper countermeasures are not in place. Active beam feedback systems are commonly used to suppress beam instabilities. The resistive wall impedance including phase-II insertion devices at TPS are calculated with analytical formulas. The growth rate of transverse coupled bunch instabilities due to wall impedance is estimated by theory. The RF properties of existing stripline kickers in TPS are analyzed with a 3-D electromagnetic simulation code GdfidL. Based on the above analysis, the requirements for a beam feedback system are calculated and the results are reported.

  Particle bunches traveling in a ring can excite wakefields inside any radio-frequency element present. These electromagnetic modes can resonate long enough and interact with subsequent passing bunches. A coherent oscillation between bunches can quickly become an instability and needs to be addressed. The Jefferson Lab electron ion collider has a large 50 mrad crossing angle and thus relies on bunch crabbing to achieve high luminosity. Bunch crabbing is done with compact superconducting rf dipole cavities. We study coupled bunch oscillations driven by the higher order modes of multicell RFD crab cavities under study for JLEIC, we calculate the instability growth time assuming a symmetric beam spectrum, identify the HOMs driving the instability and discuss mitigation measures.

  The slow orbit feedback at the electron storage ring at DELTA will be upgraded with new software. Finding a set of dipole-field-strength variations which minimize the deviation of the orbit from a reference orbit requires solving a convex optimization problem subject to inequality constraints. This work focuses on exploiting properties of a special type of interior point methods, which can solve this problem, for orbit correction at DELTA. After comparing runtimes of an interior point method to a Newton-like optimization algorithm, the performance of the new slow-orbit-feedback software is assessed based on measurement results.

  The MAX IV 1.5 GeV ring is an electron storage ring for production of synchrotron light in the IR to soft X-ray spectral range. The ring will deliver light to its first users during 2018. Bunch-By-Bunch (BBB) feedback has been needed to suppress coupled-bunch mode instabilities (CBMIs), and the feedback has this far been provided in all three planes by a single stripline kicker. This is done by combining the horizontal and vertical baseband feedback signals with the longitudinal feedback signal that is upconverted to the 150 MHz - 250 MHz range. The combined signal is then fed to two stripline electrodes. The layout of the BBB feedback system in the MAX IV 1.5 GeV ring is presented in this paper. Results from instability studies are also discussed.

  State of the art high-current superconducting accelerators require efficient RF sources with a fast dynamic phase and power control. This allows for compensation of the phase and amplitude deviations of the accelerating volt-age in the Superconducting RF (SRF) cavities caused by microphonics, etc. Efficient magnetron transmitters with fast phase and power control are attractive RF sources for this application. They are more cost effective than traditional RF sources such as klystrons, IOTs and solid-state amplifiers used with large scale accelerator projects. However, unlike traditional RF sources, controlled magnetrons operate as forced oscillators. Study of the impact of the controlling signal on magnetron stability, noise and efficiency is therefore important. This paper discusses experiments with 2.45 GHz, 1 kW tubes and verifies our analytical model which is based on the charge drift approximation.

An experiment to produce 1-MeV gamma rays via Compton back-scattering of infrared photons on 250-MeV electron bunches is currently in preparation at the Fermilab Accelerator Science & Technology (FAST) facility. To increase the gamma-ray flux the energy of the infrared laser pulses are planned to be amplified within the interaction region using a resonant cavity. This passive amplifier composed of a Fabry-Perot cavity will allow the laser pulse bunches to coherently and constructively stack. Our estimates, based on theoretical models, show that the laser pulse energy can be increased from approximately 1-2 mJ at the exit of the last active amplifier to 5 -10 mJ at the interaction point when the laser repetition rate is set at the nominal value of 3 MHz. This paper details the cavity design option(s) and associated wave-optic simulations.

  The SuperKEKB injector is a more than 600 m J-shaped LINAC. The requirement of the RF phase refer-ence stability is 0.1 degree (RMS) at 2856 MHz for SuperKEKB PHASE-2 commissioning. In order to clari-fy and improve the reference line performance, the RF reference phase stability is measured. The phase noise of the RF reference at each sector is shown in this paper. A new phase monitor system is implemented to measure the short-term stability and long-term drift due to the temperature and humidity fluctuations in the klystron gallery.

Iterative learning control (ILC) is an open loop control strategy that improves the performance of a repetitive system through learning from previous iterations. ILC can be used to compensate for a repetitive disturbance like the beam loading effect in resonators. Assuming that the beam loading disturbance is identical for all iterations, the learning law can be non-causal; it can anticipate the disturbance and preemptively counteract its effect. In this work, we aim to use ILC to cancel beam loading effect on amplitude and phase. Feedback controllers are not fast enough for this purpose. A normal feed forward controller may not be sufficient as well if there is a difference between the feed forward signal and the beam loading current. Therefore, the goal is to use ILC to adaptively cancel the beam loading effect.

  During acceleration in the heavy-ion synchrotrons SIS18/SIS100 at GSI/FAIR longitudinal beam oscillations are expected to occur. To reduce longitudinal emittance blow-up, dedi- cated LLRF beam feedback systems are planned. To date, damping of longitudinal beam oscillations has been demon- strated in SIS18 machine experiments with a 3-tap filter controller (e.g. *), which is robust in regard to control pa- rameters and also to noise. On acceleration ramps the control parameters have to be adjusted to the varying synchrotron frequency. Previous results from beam experiments at GSI indicate that a proportional tuning rule for one parameter and an inversely proportional tuning rule for a second parameter is feasible, but the obtained damping rate may not be opti- mal for all synchrotron frequencies during the ramp. In this work, macro-particle simulations are performed to evaluate, whether it is sufficient to adjust the control parameters pro- portionally (inversely proportionally) to the change in the linear synchrotron frequency, or if it is necessary to take more pa- rameters, such as bunch-length and synchronous phase, into account to achieve stability and a considerable high damping rate for excited longitudinal dipole beam oscillations. This is done for single- and dual-harmonic acceleration ramps.

Coherent pulse stacking (CPS) is a new time-domain coherent addition technique that stacks several optical pulses into a single output pulse, enabling high pulse energy and high average power. We model the CPS as a digital filter in the Z domain, and implement two deterministic algorithms extracting the cavity phase from limited data where only the pulse intensity is available. In a 2-stage 15-pulse CPS system, each optical cavity is stabilized at an individually-prescribed round-trip phase with 0.7 deg and 2.1 deg RMS phase errors for Stage 1 and Stage 2 respectively. Optical cavity phase control with nm accuracy ensures 1.2% intensity stability of the stacked pulse over 12 hours.

  Transient beam loading compensation schemes, such as One-Turn-FeedBack (OTFB), require beam synchronous processing (BSP). Swept clocks derived from the RF, and therefore harmonic to the revolution frequency, are widely used in CERN synchrotrons; this simplifies implementation with energy ramping, where the revolution frequency changes. It is however not optimal for state-of-the-art digital hardware that prefers fixed frequency clocks. An alternative to the swept clocking is the use of a deterministic protocol, for example, White Rabbit (WR): a fixed reference clock can be extracted from its data stream, while enabling digital distribution of the RF frequency among other data. New algorithms must be developed for BSP using this fixed clock and the digital data transmitted on the WR link. This is the strategy adopted for the SPS Low Level RF (LLRF) upgrade. The paper gives an overview of the technical, technological and historical motivations for such a paradigm evolution. It lists the problems of fixed clock BSP, and presents an innovative solution based on a real-time variable ratio re-sampler for implementing an OTFB with the new fixed clock scheme.

Hefei Advanced Light Source (HALS) is the fourth-generation radiation light source that is being pre-researched in China. Ultra-low emittance of the beam requires higher performance of power supply system. We designed a fast correcting power supply for the beam measurement needs. We adopted the all-digital method, the current closed-loop feedback used the AD7766 with 24-bit resolution as its A/D converter. And we added the corresponding constant temperature control, chain protection, etc. The small-signal frequency response of this system can reach more than 5kHz. The detail design scheme is described in this paper.
