Title: Simulating synchrotron radiation in accelerators including diffuse and specular reflections

Abstract

An accurate calculation of the synchrotron radiation flux within the vacuum chamber of an accelerator is needed for a number of applications. These include simulations of electron cloud effects and the design of radiation masking systems. To properly simulate the synchrotron radiation, it is important to include the scattering of the radiation at the vacuum chamber walls. To this end, a program called synrad3d has been developed which simulates the production and propagation of synchrotron radiation using a collection of photons. Photons generated by a charged particle beam are tracked from birth until they strike the vacuum chamber wall where the photon is either absorbed or scattered. Both specular and diffuse scattering is simulated. If a photon is scattered, it is further tracked through multiple encounters with the wall until it is finally absorbed. This paper describes the synrad3d program, with a focus on the details of its scattering model, and presents some examples of the program’s use.

  • A numerical method is presented for predicting radiation heat transfer from arbitrary bodies composed of numerous polygons. Each polygon is gray and has the combined characteristics of specular and diffuse surfaces. Both heat flux and temperature can be specified arbitrarily on the surfaces. A new concept of view factors was introduced for analyzing radiation heat transfer between specular and diffuse surfaces. A radiation ray tracing method was adopted for estimating the view factors, and efficient vector operation and parallel processing were achieved for a supercomputer. The accuracy of the method was checked in comparison with analytical solutions for a simplemore » configuration, and the effect of specular reflectivity was investigated. As a numerical example, radiation heat transfer of a machine element and heater panels composed of 4,388 polygons was demonstrated.« less
  • The purely resonant Bragg reflections (13, 13, 0) and (14, 0, 0) in yttrium aluminum garnet Y{sub 3}Al{sub 5}O{sub 12} at energies near the K absorption edge of yttrium have been studied experimentally and theoretically. The anisotropic tensor atomic factor of yttrium corresponding to dipole-dipole resonance transitions depends on three independent parameters changing with energy. The intensities of the reflections (14, 0, 0) and (13, 13, 0) are shown to depend on the parameter difference f{sub 1}(E) - f{sub 2}(E) and the parameter f{sub 3}(E), respectively, which are attributable to distortions of the wave functions of the excited atoms andmore » change greatly with photon energy E. Studying various reflections has allowed one to determine the various components of the tensor atomic factor and to compare them with the results of numerical calculations.« less
  • The effect of strain (either static or caused by long-wavelength acoustic oscillations) on the energy spectrum and the azimuthal dependence of the intensity of 'forbidden' reflections in crystals at the energy of incident radiation close to the absorption edge is considered. It is shown that a strain causing a weak change in the unit-cell symmetry may additionally contribute to the tensor atomic factor. Examples of changes in the azimuthal dependence of forbidden-reflection intensity in zinc oxide ZnO and potassium dihydrogen phosphate KH{sub 2}PO{sub 4} are considered.
