Title: Study of Collective Effects for the PEP Low-Emittance Optics

Abstract

Experimental studies have been performed on the PEP storage ring run at 7.1 GeV in the low-emittance mode. The motivation for this work is to explore the capability of PEP as a dedicated synchrotron radiation source. The long straight sections and low emittance available at PEP make its use for this purpose very attractive, and would produce a source of very high brightness x-ray beams for the scientific community. During the studies, single-bunch current limitations were measured as a function of RF voltage. Thresholds were in the range of 1-2 mA per bunch, which is lower than expected based upon transverse impedance estimates from the PEP collider optics. An increase in threshold current by about 50% was realized by modifying the optics to reduce the magnitude of the horizontal beta functions in the straight sections and at the RF locations. The reason for the lower than expected thresholds has not been resolved. To permit its effective use as a synchrotron radiation source, a beam current of 50-100 mA is desired, which will require that PEP be run in the multibunch mode. Our goal in this study was to investigate the multibunch operating mode to ascertain that reasonable beam intensities weremore » possible. By utilizing many low intensity (0.1-0.25 mA) bunches, stable and reproducible currents of 15-20 mA were achieved. In an attempt to improve this value, one of the idle RF stations was operated in a tune-splitting mode, with only partial success. By adjusting the tuner positions of the unused RF stations, up to 33 mA was ultimately stored, albeit with some evidence for instability. Possible approaches to improving the multibunch stability are discussed.« less

  • In this note, single and multi-bunch collective instabilities are considered for PEP operating a 9 {times} 9 bunch configuration. The lattice is based on a vertically separated beam pretzel' design which allows for collisions at the TPC (IR2) only. Threshold current levels and linear instability growth rates are calculated with the storage ring design code {prime}ZAP{prime}. Single bunch instabilities should not be a problem for total circulating currents of 100mA (18 bunches, 5.6mA/bunch). Coupled-bunch growth rate calculations are based on a line broadening technique for the higher-order cavity modes. In the longitudinal case, feedback will be required. For the transversemore » coupled bunch instabilities, growth rates are about 5 times less. 14 refs., 5 figs.« less
  • The objective of volume 1 of this project was to determine the normal, spectral emittance of alpha-SiC (Hexoloy SA) and TiB2 toughened SiC (Hexoloy ST) in the mid-infrared at elevated temperatures. A two part literature survey is presented. The first part reviews the instrumentation required in emittance measurement techniques while the second part deals with the different techniques of measurement. A high-temperature emissometer based on the integral blackbody emission technique was designed, manufactured and assembled. The surface morphology and composition of the materials were characterized by scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffraction techniques, respectively.
  • The National Communications System (NCS) is responsible for defining reasonable enhancements that could be applied to commercial common carrier (or carriers'- carrier) fiber-optic systems that will be leased or owned by government agencies and which may be used for National Security/Emergency Preparedness (NSEP) purposes. This report provides background excerpted from many references used in the development of a multitier specification that identifies five levels of enhancement. (The multitier specification is presented in a separate report.) The report describes the nuclear environment for surface and in-atmosphere bursts outside of the blast region, where buildings and personnel would be expected to survive.more » In the environment, the vulnerability of optical fiber waveguides to fallout radiation is a primary concern. An assessment of fiber darkening, based on a review of unclassified literature, is presented. For exo-atmospheric nuclear bursts, the fiber optic system is exposed to High Altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) radiation. Unclassified levels of these nuclear effects have been obtained from published literature. The characteristics of future generations of optical-fiber systems, as described in current literature, are outlined.« less
  • This project was a numerical study of the behavior of surface plasmons in nano-systems, focusing on the interaction between plasmons, light, and nano-scale structures such as nano-scale metallic wires and quantum wires/dots. The primary results of the project included: a) the demonstration of the use of surface plasmons to modify the spatial coherence of a light wave, b) the demonstration of a feasible plasmonic superresolved readout system, and c) the demonstration of a Plasmonic Zeno effect, in which the attenuation of a light wave in metal is suppressed by breaking up the metal into a collection of structured layers. Themore » integration of quantum wire/dot effects with the plasmonic simulations proved to be harder than expected, in large part due to the lack of accurate and simple quantum dot models.« less
  • In this study two novel approaches are proposed to investigate precisely the low dose low LET radiation damage and its effect on bystander cells in real time. First, a flow shear model system, which would provide us a near in vivo situation where endothelial cells in the presence of extra cellular matrix experiencing continuous flow shear stress, will be used. Endothelial cells on matri-gel (simulated extra cellular matrix) will be subjected to physiological flow shear (that occurs in normal blood vessels). Second, a unique tool (Single nano particle/single live cell/single molecule microscopy and spectroscopy; Figure A) will be used tomore » track the molecular trafficking by single live cell imaging. Single molecule chemical microscopy allows one to single out and study rare events that otherwise might be lost in assembled average measurement, and monitor many target single molecules simultaneously in real-time. Multi color single novel metal nanoparticle probes allow one to prepare multicolor probes (Figure B) to monitor many single components (events) simultaneously and perform multi-complex analysis in real-time. These nano-particles resist to photo bleaching and hence serve as probes for unlimited timeframe of analysis. Single live cell microscopy allows one to image many single cells simultaneously in real-time. With the combination of these unique tools, we will be able to study under near-physiological conditions the cellular and sub-cellular responses (even subtle changes at one molecule level) to low and very low doses of low LET radiation in real time (milli-second or nano-second) at sub-10 nanometer spatial resolution. This would allow us to precisely identify, at least in part, the molecular mediators that are responsible of radiation damage in the irradiated cells and the mediators that are responsible for initiating the signaling in the neighboring cells. Endothelial cells subjected to flow shear (2 dynes/cm2 or 16 dynes/cm2) and exposed to 0.1, 1 and 10 cGy on coverslips will be examined for (a) low LET radiation-induced alterations of cellular function and its physiological relevance in real time; and (b) radiation damage triggered bystander effect on the neighboring unirradiated cells. First, to determine the low LET radiation induced alteration of cellular function we will examine: (i) the real time transformation of single membrane transporters in single living cells; (ii) the pump efficiency of membrane efflux pump of live cells in real time at the molecular level; (iii) the kinetics of single-ligand receptor interaction on single live cell surface (Figure C); and (iv) alteration in chromosome replication in living cell. Second, to study the radiation triggered bystander responses, we will examine one of the key signaling pathway i.e. TNF- alpha/NF-kappa B mediated signaling. TNF-alpha specific nano particle sensors (green) will be developed to detect the releasing dynamics, transport mechanisms and ligand-receptor binding on live cell surface in real time. A second sensor (blue) will be developed to simultaneously monitor the track of NF-kB inside the cell. The proposed nano-particle optics approach would complement our DOE funded study on biochemical mechanisms of TNF-alpha- NF-kappa B-mediated bystander effect.« less
