  In the 3-GeV rapid cycling synchrotron (RCS) of the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), the injection and extraction systems play important roles for the beam injection and extraction, respectively. Unfortunately, the 2011 great east Japan earthquake had a serious impact on the ongoing schedule due to the big damage of the whole accelerator facility and the infrastructure as well. The injection and extraction including the beam transport lines magnets suffered a noticeable displacement resulting with alignment errors. As realignment of the RCS magnets can not be done in this year, then based on the post earthquake measured alignment data, we have estimated the effect as well as possible solutions on the injected and extracted beam for as usual operation. Fortunately, the simulation results shows that there would not be any serious impact on both injected as well as extracted beam with present alignment errors and thus user operation can be resume as expected. The simulation result together with some experimental results will be presented.

  In the J-PARC RCS, the significant losses were observed at the branch of H0 dump line and the Beam Position Monitor which was put at the downstream of the H0 dump branch duct. These losses were caused by the large angle scattering of the injection and circulating beam at the charge exchange foil. To realize high power operation, we have to mitigate these losses. So, we started to develop a new collimation system in the H0 branch duct and installed in October 2011. In order to optimize this system efficiently, we primarily focused on the relative angle of collimator block from scattering particles. We simulated behavior of particles scattered by foil and produced by collimator block and researched most optimized position and angle of the collimator block. In this process, we devised the method of angular regulation of collimator block. We present the method of angular regulation and performance of this new collimation system.

  Ionization Profile Monitors (IPM) were installed and operated in the J-PARC 3-GeV RCS for the observation of circulating beam profile. In IPM system, ions produced by the beam passing through beam chamber lead to Multi Channel Plate (MCP) by electric field, and the signals from the MCP are observed as the beam profile. The IPM system has an upgrade plan for the optimization of the electric fields. This will be reported the upgrade status of the IPM.

  J-PARC Facilities were damaged by East Japan Earthquake in March 2011, but All Facirities resumed a beam operation from December 2012. In this paper, we report and compare the beam loss distribution and the residual doses before and after resumption of user operation in J-PARC RCS.

  The J-PARC RCS (3-GeV rapid cycling synchrotron) has two functions as a proton driver to the MLF (Materials and life science facility) and an injector to the MR (50-GeV main ring synchrotron). One of important issues in the current RCS bam tuning is to suppress the beam halo formation, which is essential especially to reduce the beam loss at the MR. In this paper, we present beam study results on the formation mechanism and reduction of the beam halo in the RCS.

  The injection energy upgrade for J-PARC RCS is planed in 2013. This includes the power supplies upgrade of injection pulsed magnet system, suppression for leakage field, quadrupole correction magnets, reduction of kicker impedance effect and improvements of beam diagnostic instrumentation. The paper reports the present status.
