  • The CERN-PSI feasibility study of a B-Meson Factory in the ISR tunnel has resulted in the proposal of a 3.5 on 8.0 GeV machine with a bunch spacing of 12 m, to be reduced eventually to 3 m. The beams will be vertically separated by the radial field component of the 1.5 T experimental solenoids, rotated for this purpose by 4 degrees, and by the fields acting on the off-centered beams in the central interaction region quadrupoles. Vertical separations of 6 {sigma}{sub x} are obtained at 3 m from IP, and of 2.5 {sigma}{sub x} at 1.5 m. The solenoidmore » tilt and the amount of synchrotron radiation arriving in the central detector are compatible with the requirements of the experiments. The geometry and the performance of the proposed separation scheme are presented.« less
  • A novel technique is presented for measuring the six-dimensional beam emittance for high-energy H/sup -/ accelerators in real time. This technique uses the single charge exchange cross section from thin and narrow foils (intercepting 1-3% of the beam) as a line source for measuring the divergence and momentum spectra for operating H/sup -/ accelerator beams. By scanning the foil across the beam, X, /THETA/, and p beam density spectra and emittance can be determined. The introduction of a second foil provides the Y-/phi/ emittance. 2 refs.
  • The transverse emittance of an ion beam describes its transverse size as the particles are transported from a source to a target. It allows for predicting beam losses in limiting apertures and the beam focus size at the target. Various definitions and issues are discussed. The most common and emerging measuring techniques are presented, including their advantages. Several methods of emittance data analysis, their accuracy and trustworthiness, are discussed.
  • A slow energy loss of unbunched protons and antiprotons in the ISR has been observed which is larger than expected for interactions with the residual gas and for synchrotron radiation. It can be explained as a parasitic mode loss due to the wall currents induced by the longitudinal Schottky noise. This noise as seen at the wall of a circular chamber of radius a extends to a typical frequency of the order ..omega../sup -/c..gamma../a limited by the finite opening angle of /sup -/1/..gamma.. of the fields created by a relativisitic particle. Due to the statistical longitudinal distribution of the particlesmore » the total energy loss due to the induced wall current is proportional to the total number of particles and the loss per particle becomes independent of current. This loss leads to a steady decrease of the orbit radius which can be observed for long storage times. Using these results obtained at different energies, the frequency dependence of the resistive longitudinal impedance in the range of several tens of GHz is obtained. This impedance is compared with the prediction of the diffraction theory.« less
