Title: Design of the Aluminum Vacuum Chambers for the 3 GeV TPS Electron Storage Ring

Abstract

The conceptual design of the vacuum systems for the electron storage ring of the Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) is described. The vacuum system for the synchrotron light source not only meets the specifications of an electron beam energy of 3 GeV and a beam current at 400 mA but also provides a safety factor of {approx} 1.7 (or 3.3 GeV and 500 mA) at the upper bound. The vacuum system for the storage ring is built with consideration of the following factors: (1) Sustaining the ultrahigh vacuum (UHV), (2) Highly stable vacuum system with vibration level < 0.5 {mu}m, (3) Vacuum chambers with low impedance, (4) Thermal absorbers, and (5) Highly reliable vacuum system with least trip rate, etc. to ensure the stability of the circulating low emittance electron beam. The aluminum alloys are selected for the vacuum chambers to meet the design requirements. The concept of the design will be described.

  • Experiments were carried out on laboratory and prototype scale systems in order to establish the feasibility of argon discharge processing the PEP storage ring aluminum vacuum chambers. Electron-induced desorption rates showed significant reductions following bakeout and/or argon glow discharge treatment (>10/sup 1/9 ions cm/sup -/1). Data are presented and discussed in relation to advantages and problems associated with: water removal, argon trapping and subsequent release, electron energy dependence, discharge distribution, and surface plasma chemical effects.
  • Three chemical precleaning methods suitable for aluminum alloy vacuum chambers for electron storage rings have been compared. The methods ranged from vapor degreasing with no chemical attack to light alkaline etching and strong alkaline etching in NaOH. The techniques used to evaluate and compare the three treatments included Auger analysis, thermal outgassing, electron and x-ray induced neutral gas desorption, argon glow discharge cleaning, and scanning electron microscope examination of the surface. In general, the NaOH treatment was best followed closely by the light alkaline etch and then the vapor degreasing. A variant of the light alkaline etch method was usedmore » to clean the 2000 Al vacuum chambers of the CERN large electron positron storage ring project. Two chambers cleaned by this method were exposed to synchrotron radiation in a dedicated beam line of a synchrotron radiation source. Compared to a reference chamber cleaned by NaOH these two chambers were initially worse, but after 1 A h of machine operation the difference practically vanished.« less
  • The large electron positron storage ring (LEP) preinjector will provide the particles to be stored in the LEP. It is composed of a high-intensity linear accelerator (linac) providing 200-MeV electrons for the production of positrons, a low-intensity linac (LIL) for the acceleration of electrons and positrons to 600 MeV (LIL), and an electron positron accumulator (EPA) ring to collect dense bunches of electrons and positrons at 600 MeV (EPA). The LIL rf accelerating cavities and waveguides are typical of severely conductance limited vacuum systems with high rf induced gas loads, in which a low hydrocarbon free residual pressure has tomore » be maintained (5 x 10/sup -8/ mbar). For the EPA ring, subjected to synchrotron radiation induced gas desorption, considerations of beam lifetime require a base pressure in the 10/sup -9/ mbar range, achievable without in situ bakeout in the shortest possible time. The design features with particular emphasis on conceptual choices, cleanliness and special treatments, new hardware, low outgassing achievements, as well as cost and initial performances of these vacuum systems are presented.« less
  • The Synchrotron Booster Ring accelerates the e-beam up to 3 GeV and particles are transported from booster to storage ring by transfer line. In this study, two options are considered, the first one is a long booster which shares the same tunnel with storage ring and the second one is a compact booster. As a result, two transfer line are designed based on booster options. The optical design is constrained by the e-beam Twiss parameters entering and leaving the transfer line. Twiss parameters in the extraction point of booster are used for the entrance of transfer line and are matchedmore » in the exit of transfer line to the injection point of the storage ring.« less
