Title: Preparing the MAX IV storage rings for timing-based experiments

Abstract

Time-resolved experimental techniques are increasingly abundant at storage ring facilities. Recent developments in accelerator technology and beamline instrumentation allow for simultaneous operation of high-intensity and timing-based experiments. The MAX IV facility is a state-of-the-art synchrotron light source in Lund, Sweden, that will come into operation in 2016. As many storage ring facilities are pursuing upgrade programs employing strong-focusing multibend achromats and passive harmonic cavities (HCs) in high-current operation, it is of broad interest to study the accelerator and instrumentation developments required to enable timing-based experiments at such machines. In particular, the use of hybrid filling modes combined with pulse picking by resonant excitation or pseudo single bunch has shown promising results. These methods can be combined with novel beamline instrumentation, such as choppers and instrument gating. In this paper we discuss how these techniques can be implemented and employed at MAX IV.

  • Ion cooler-storage rings open-up new possibilities for studies of electron-ion and ion-atom collision processes and high resolution atomic spectroscopy. Here investigations of radiative (RR) and three-body collisional recombination (TBR), dielectronic recombination (DR), and laser induced recombination are presented. These experiments exploit the improved electron cooler at a heavy-ion cooler storage ring, CRYRING at Manne Siegbahn Laboratory, as a target. Using the expanded electron beam of the electron cooler an energy resolution better than 0.03 eV FWHM has been achieved in DR measurements. The important finding is that compared to the calculated RR rate coefficient, the rate of Ne{sup 10+} ismore » enhanced by a factor of 4. The enhancement occurs at very low relative electron energy (below 10{sup {minus}3}eV) and may be due to TBR or a similar collective recombination process, which awaits further investigation. The additional enhancement of the recombination rates by up to a factor 20 found previously for heavy, complex ions was shown by high resolution measurements of {Delta}n = 0 DR transitions in boronlike (Ar{sup 13+}) argon to be due to DR. Further high resolution DR measurements will be reported for Li-like ions, such as C{sup 3+}, Ne{sup 7+}, Si{sup 11+}, and Ar{sup 15+}.« less
  • An ASIC receiver has been developed for the optical timing, trigger and control distribution system for LHC detectors. It is capable of recovering the LHC reference clock and the first-level trigger decisions and making them available to the front-end electronics properly deskewed in time. The timing receiver is also capable of recognizing individually addressed commands to provide some slow control capability. Its main functions include post-amplification of the signal received from a photodetector-preamplifier, automatic gain control, data/clock separation, demultiplexing of the trigger and data channels and programmable coarse/fine deskewing functions. The design has been mapped into a standard 1{micro}m CMOSmore » process with all the analogue and timing critical functions implemented in full custom. The jitter measured on the recovered clock is less than 100 ps for input optical powers down to {minus}25 dBm. The time deskewing functions allow the commands and the first level trigger accept signal to be phase shifted up to a maximum of sixteen clock cycles in steps of 0.1 ns.« less
