  The presence of significant intensities of un-bunched beam is a potentially serious issue in the LHC. Procedures using damper kickers for cleaning both Abort Gap (AG) and buckets targeted for injection, are currently in operation at flat bottom. Recent observations of relatively high population of the AG during physics runs brought up the need for AG cleaning during luminosity operation as well. In this paper the results of experimental studies performed in October 2011 are presented.

A new lattice for 3 TeV c.o.m. energy with β*=5mm was developed which follows the basic concept of the earlier 1.5 TeV design* but uses quad triplets for the final focus in order to keep the maximum magnet strength and aperture about the same as in 1.5 TeV case. Another difference is employment of combined-function magnets with the goal to lower heat deposition in magnet cold mass and to eliminate regions without bending field which produce “hot spots” of neutrino radiation that can be an issue at higher energy. The proposed lattice is shown to satisfy the requirements on luminosity, dynamic aperture and momentum acceptance.

In order to achieve peak luminosity of a Muon Collider (MC) in the 1035/cm2/s range very small values of beta-function at the interaction point (IP) are necessary (β* ~ 5 mm) while the distance from IP to the first quadrupole can not be made shorter than ~6m as dictated by the necessity of detector protection from backgrounds. In the result the beta-function at the final focus quadrupoles can reach 100 km making beam dynamics very sensitive to all kind of errors. In the present report we consider the effects on momentum acceptance and dynamic aperture of multipole field errors in the body of IR dipoles as well as of fringe-fields in both dipoles and quadrupoles in the case of 1.5 TeV (c.o.m.) MC. Analysis shows these effects to be strong but correctable with dedicated multipole correctors.

The Fermilab Booster - built more than 40 years ago - operates well above the design proton beam intensity of 4.e12 ppp. Still, the Fermilab neutrino experiments call for even higher intensity of 5.5·1012 ppp. A multitude of intensity related effects must be overcome in order to meet this goal including suppression of coherent dipole instabilities of transverse oscillations which manifest themselves as a sudden drop in the beam current. In this report we present the results of observation of these instabilities at different tune, coupling and chromaticity settings and discuss possible cures.

Tune identification - i.e. attribution of the spectral peak to a particular normal mode of oscillations - can present a significant difficulty in the presence of strong transverse coupling when the normal mode with a lower damping rate dominates spectra of Turn-by-Turn oscillations in both planes. The introduced earlier phased sum algorithm* helped to recover the weaker normal mode signal from the noise, but by itself proved to be insufficient for automatic peak identification in the case of close phase advance distribution in both planes. To resolve this difficulty we modified the algorithm by taking and analyzing Turn-by-Turn data for two different ramps with the beam oscillation excited in each plane in turn. Comparison of the relative amplitudes of Fourier components allows for automatic correct tune identification. The proposed algorithm was implemented in the Fermilab Booster B38 console application and successfully used in tune, coupling and chromaticity measurements.
