A new timing system for the Duke booster and storage ring

Published

Journal Article

A dedicated booster synchrotron is being constructed at the Duke FEL Laboratory to provide full energy injection into the main electron storage ring. A new timing system has been developed to coordinate the injection of electron bunches from the linac to the booster, the ramping of energy in the booster, and extraction of bunches into the main ring. The timing system will allow the extraction of any bunch in the booster into any selected bucket in the main ring to provide top-off injection for any of the various operational bunch patterns of the main ring. A new master oscillator has also been developed for the RF system of the booster. The oscillator may be tuned independently or phase-locked to the master oscillator of the main ring. The issues of the soft phase locking process of the new master oscillator are discussed. The timing system and new oscillator have been fabricated and tested and are ready for operation. © 2005 IEEE.
