Title: Fast and precise technique for magnet lattice correction via sine-wave excitation of fast correctors

Abstract

A novel technique has been developed to improve the precision and shorten the measurement time of the LOCO (linear optics from closed orbits) method. This technique, named AC LOCO, is based on sine-wave (ac) beam excitation via fast correctors. Such fast correctors are typically installed at synchrotron light sources for the fast orbit feedback. The beam oscillations are measured by beam position monitors. The narrow band used for the beam excitation and measurement not only allows us to suppress effectively the beam position noise but also opens the opportunity for simultaneously exciting multiple correctors at different frequencies (multifrequency mode). We demonstrated at NSLS-II that AC LOCO provides better lattice corrections and works much faster than the traditional LOCO method.

  • We used the basis of the x-ray extended range technique to measure the lattice spacing of LaB{sub 6} standard powder samples relative to silicon 640b standard powder samples with an accuracy of 5x10{sup -5} A. Measurements were not constrained to one energy but were carried out over a 5 keV-20 keV energy range. These measurements used powder diffraction to determine the synchrotron beam energy, to diagnose discrepancies in the nominal calibrated beam energies, and to determine beam energy bandwidths as a function of energy. More specifically, this technique is able to yield a result independent of certain energy-dependent systematics andmore » to yield the most accurate determination of the lattice spacing of NIST SRM 660 LaB{sub 6} standard powder so far undertaken. This has direct application to beam line energy calibration, structural evaluation, edge energy calibration, and lattice spacing determinations.« less
  • A wave-front corrector of highly anamorphic shape is fabricated using a single-point diamond turning method, and its performance is tested.
  • The caleulation is carried through for the linear combination covering all the neutron groups in two cases of perturbation, a neighboring source of fissions, and a reflector. The results are expressed in a two-group formula by means of the weighing coefficients. (W.D.M.)
  • The modeling of NLTE plasmas requires the solution of population rate equations to determine the populations of the various atomic levels relevant to a particular problem. The equations require many cross sections for excitation, de-excitation, ionization and recombination. Additionally, a simple and computational fast way to calculate electron collisional excitation cross-sections for ions is by using the plane-wave Born approximation. This is essentially a high-energy approximation and the cross section suffers from the unphysical problem of going to zero near threshold. Various remedies for this problem have been employed with varying degrees of success. We present a correction procedure formore » the Born cross-sections that employs the Elwert–Sommerfeld factor to correct for the use of plane waves instead of Coulomb waves in an attempt to produce a cross-section similar to that from using the more time consuming Coulomb Born approximation. We compare this new approximation with other, often employed correction procedures. Furthermore, we also look at some further modifications to our Born Elwert procedure and its combination with Y.K.
