Title: NEW DEVELOPMENTS ON THE E-P INSTABILITY AT THE PROTON STORAGE RING (PSR)

New results are reported from an R and D program aimed at greater understanding and control of the e-p instability observed at the Los Alamos Proton Storage Ring (PSR). Numerous characteristics of the electron cloud for both stable and unstable beams in PSR were measured with ANL electron analyzers and various collection plates. Strong suppression of the electron flux density by TiN coating of the vacuum chamber in a straight section was also observed, thereby confirming an essential role for secondary emission at the walls. Landau Damping by a variety of techniques including higher rf voltage, transverse coupling, multipole fields in the lattice, and the use of inductive inserts has been effective in controlling the e-p instability. By these methods, the instability threshold has been raised significantly to 9.7 micro Coulombs per stored pulse.
