Title: Minimizing Errant Beam at the Spallation Neutron Source

Abstract

Over the years SNS has been optimizing the amount of errant beam pulses in the accelerator. The errant beam pulses can damage the superconducting cavities and thus lower the uptime of the accelerator. This talk will present the effort that has been made to lower the amount of errant beam pulses with new diagnostics, analysis of processes that cause errant beam, and the resulting lessons learned.
