Electron beam diagnostics based on transverse feedback system at duke storage ring


Journal Article

To combat electron beam instabilities, a field programmable gate array (FPGA) based bunch-by-bunch transverse feedback (TFB) has been developed for the Duke storage ring. While it is capable of suppressing transverse beam instabilities for multi-bunch operation, the TFB system has not been needed for typical operation of the Duke storage ring FEL. To explore the great potential of this system, we have focused on the development of TFB based beam diagnostics. A TFB based tune measurement system has been developed using two methods: the tune scan method and tune monitoring method. With the tune monitoring method, a much faster method of the two, we have studied the tune stability of the electron beam in the Duke storage ring. This tune measurement system also allows us to conduct chromaticity measurements more quickly, compared with the existing chromaticity measurement system using a network analyzer. Finally, the TFB based tune system has been used to calibrate the tune knob and chromaticity knob for the Duke storage ring. Copyright © 2012 by IEEE.
