  Two new high gradient C100 cryostats with a total of 16 new cavities were installed at the end of the CEBAF south linac during the 2011 summer shutdown as part of the 12 GeV upgrade project at Jefferson Lab. We ran recirculating beam breakup (BBU) study in November 2011 to evaluate CEBAF low energy performance, measure transport optics, and evaluate BBU thresholds due to higher order modes (HOMs) in these cavities. This paper discusses the experiment setup, cavity measurements, machine setup, optics measurements, and lower bounds on existing CEBAF C100 BBU thresholds established by this experiment.

Standard closed-orbit techniques for Twiss parameter measurement are not applicable to the open-ended Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at Jefferson Lab. The evolution of selected sets of real orbits in the accelerator models the behavior of a “synthetic” beam. This process will be validated against beam profile-based Twiss parameter measurements and should provide the distributed optical information needed to optimize beamline tuning for an open-ended system. This work will discuss the current and future states of this technique, as well as an example of its use in the CEBAF machine.
