Title: Single Electrons Emission Diagnostics (SEED)

Abstract

A single electron orbiting around a ring and emitting single quanta at the rate of about one event per hundred turns could produce a wealth of information about physical processes in large traps (i.e. storage rings) for charged particles. RadiaBeam Technologies, in collaboration with Fermilab is developing a novel diagnostic system based on recording synchrotron radiation from single particles, terms SEED (SingleElectron Emission Diagnostics). The project is being implemented at the Integrable Optics Test Accelerator (IOTA), which is a small (45 meters perimeter) storage ring at Fermilab, where one of the straight sections is dedicated to installing an undulator and downstream diagnostics for single electron studies. The SEED system enables precise determination of the longitudinal, spectral, spatial and angular properties of a single electron emission in a wiggler field, which can illuminate the phenomenological nature of basic quantum processes such as single photon emission by a single electron in a reproducible experimental setting. The motivation for this project includes three somewhat inter-dependent thrusts: (1) Development of a precision metrology system capable to accurately resolve temporal, spectral, and spatial properties of photons, emitted in a single electron experiments in a storage ring; (2) Achieve an improved understanding of quantum and semi-classicalmore » processes, associated with the single electron emission, and their possible application to quantum technology (i.e. quantum cryptography, communication, and quantum computing). (3) Utilization of a single electron emission measurements, as an ultimate beam diagnostic tool to achieve improved understanding of the storage ring dynamics; In Phase I, we established the SEED collaboration, which includes RadiaBeam, Fermilab, and SLAC, and have organized a dedicated workshop at Fermilab, considered scientific case, prepared a white paper, and developed the diagnostics methodology to carry forward the program. In parallel, our collaborators at Fermilab have achieved the first experimental results on a single electron entrapment in a storage ring at IOTA and initiated the experimental studies of the undulator emission at IOTA. In the Phase II, the SEED system will be constructed and implemented at the IOTA facility, and the experimental studies of the single electron emission phenomena will commence.« less
