Title: Effectiveness of Emittance Bumps in the NLC and US Cold LC Main Linear Accelerators (LCC-0138)

Abstract

We report on a series of studies on the effectiveness of closed orbit bumps in the linacs of the NLC and the USColdLC. In the first study, emittance dilutions of a pure-wakefield or pure-dispersion character are introduced in each linac, and a set of emittance bumps is tested to determine the most effective bump location in the linac, and the net effectiveness. In the second study, a more realistic set of dilutions are introduced and the wakefield bumps used in the first study are applied.

  • The standard prescription for NLC main linac steering assumes that the RMS offset between a quad's magnetic center and the corresponding BPM's electrical center can be determined at the level of a micron. This is a fearsome requirement, and will be particularly difficult to achieve if hybrid iron/permanent magnet quads are used in the main linac. As an alternative, the Dispersion Free Steering (DFS) [1] algorithm is adapted to the NLC main linac environment; the DFS algorithm does not require knowledge of the quad-BPM offsets. The results of simulation studies of this adaptation are presented. In addition, the use ofmore » closed orbit bumps to globally correct dispersive emittance growth is considered. The studies indicate that DFS can be used successfully in the NLC main linac environment, and that dispersion bumps are a useful addition to the linac steering ''toolbox,'' regardless of the main algorithm selected.« less
  • This paper examines the severity of the electron cloud effects in the Low Emittance Transport (LET) of linear colliders including the Bunch-Compressor System (BCS) and Beam Delivery System (BDS). We examine the electron cloud effects in the normal-conducting GLC/NLC or X-Band, and the super-conducting US-Cold and TESLA linear collider designs through the use of specially developed computer simulation codes. An estimate of the critical cloud density is given for the BDS and BCS of the X-Band collider.
  • In this note we consider the effect of the varying the iris opening {alpha} in the NLC structures on the beam dynamics and the RF efficiency in the linac. The most important consequence of the variation of the iris openings is the change of the longitudinal and transverse wakefields. Wake as a function of parameter {alpha} for the NLC structures has been previously calculated by K. Bane. Here we will use his result for the scalings of the longitudinal wake w{sub l} and transverse wake w{sub t} with the geometrical dimensions of the structure: w{sub l}(s) = Z{sub 0}c/{pi}{alpha}{sup 2}more » e{radical}(s/s{sub 0}), dw{sub t}(s)/ds = 2Z{sub 0}c/{pi}{alpha}{sup 4} e{sup -} {radical}(s/s{sub 1}) where for the scaling parameters s{sub 0} and s{sub 1} we have s{sub 0} = 0.41 a{sup 1.8}g{sup 1.6}/L{sup 2.4}, s{sub 1} = ({alpha}[m]){sup 1.96}, with g being the distance between the irises (gap) and L - the cell period (equal to the gap plus the iris thickness). The above formulas were derived assuming 2{pi}/3 phase advance between the structure cells. The wakefields were calculated assuming g = 7.09 mm and L = 8.75 mm and four different ratios of {alpha}/{lambda} = 0.18, 0.17, 0.16, 0.15 ({lambda} = 2.62 cm corresponding to the frequency 11.424 GHz). The plots of the longitudinal and transverse wakes are shown in Fig. 1 and 2. The beams dynamics in the NLC lattice (linac.cd1.1.trans) was simulated using the LIAR code for the nominal case with the following parameters: initial beam energy--10 GeV, final beam energy--500 GeV, number of particles in the bunch--10{sup 10}, normalized vertical beam emittance at the entrance to the linac--3 {center_dot} 10{sup -8} m, and the rms bunch length--150 {micro}m.« less
  • Studies of the NLC Main Damping Ring lattice since April 2001 have indicated that there are a number of collective effects that potentially limit operational performance. One possible way to reduce the impact of these effects is to raise the momentum compaction of the lattice, which requires a significant re-design. In this note, we present a lattice that has a momentum compaction four times larger than the previous design. We discuss the linear and nonlinear dynamical properties of the lattice, and present some initial estimates of the sensitivity of the new design to various magnet misalignments.
  • Scattering of primary beam electrons off of residual gas molecules or blackbody radiation photons in the NLC main linac has been identified as a potential source of beam haloes which must be collimated in the beam delivery system. We consider the contributions from four scattering mechanisms: inelastic thermal-photon scattering, elastic beam-gas (Coulomb) scattering inelastic beam-gas (Bremsstrahlung) scattering, and atomic-electron scattering. In each case we develop the formalism necessary to estimate the backgrounds generated in the main linac, and determine the expected number of off-energy or large-amplitude particles from each process, assuming a main linac injection energy of 8 GeV andmore » extraction energy of 500 GeV.« less
