Electron beam diagnostics for compact 1.2 GEV booster synchrotron


Journal Article

First operational experience has been gained with the linac and booster diagnostic system during the commissioning of the booster synchrotron at Duke University. The booster was designed and developed as an injector for the storage ring as a part of the High Intensity Gamma-ray Source (HIGS) upgrade of Duke FEL storage ring. Booster beam instrumentation includes: beam charge measurements (Faraday cups, Integrated Current Transformers (ICT), Modular Parametric Current Transformer (MPCT)), beam position monitoring (BPM), betatron tune measurements using synchrotron radiation (SR), transverse profile and temporal beam structure monitoring (insertable screens, striplines, dissector). The diagnostics provided good understanding of electron beam behavior and allowed us to adjust important beam parameters within design specifications. An overview of the diagnostic instrumentation of the Duke Booster synchrotron is given along with measurement examples and discussion of operational experience. ©2007 IEEE.
