Title: Design and performance of the Booster Beam Position Monitor system

Abstract

Instrumentation has bean built to measure heavy ion and proton beam orbits over an intensity range of 2 {times} 10{sup 10} to 1.5 {times} 10{sup l3} particles per pulse. Twenty-two horizontal and 24 vertical pairs of electrostatic Pickup Electrodes (PUEs), each with a built-in test port, are interfaced with wideband, gain selectable front end electronics. The resulting real-time signals are linearly related (both in amplitude and temporal response) to the sum and difference of the charge induced on each electrode due to passing beam. PUE signals (or their sum and difference) are available at any detector location for use by other Booster systems e.g., the Tune Meter, Transverse Damper, Radial loop control, etc. Data acquistion electronics at each, location integrate the processed front end signals over a selectable number of bunches, then digitize and transmit the integrated sum and difference to the host computer. Data normalization is done in the software, which also provides various orbit acquisition and display options to the user. This paper will describe the Booster Beam Position Monitor system, its performance objectives and the key design aspect used to meet these objectives. In addition, initial results will be presented.
