The broadband BPM system at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) is being upgraded with FPGA-based beam history modules, which fix problems in the old history modules and increase functionality. Using these new turn-by-turn BPMs and the newly developed real-time feedback system, measurement of BPM gains, beta function and other optics functions are being developed based on model-independent analysis of turn-by-turn data and model fitting, aiming at quasi-real-time and high-accuracy optics measurement. We will discuss our effort, especially experience with strong nonlinearity and wakefields typical of 3rd-generation light sources.

The Advanced Photon Source facility includes a 450-MeV S-band linac with the option for injection from a photocathode (PC) rf gun. A diode-pumped, twice-frequency doubled Nd:glass regen laser (263 nm) is used with the Cu PC to generate the electron beams. Characterization of these beams and studies of the microbunching instability following beam compression in the four-dipole magnetic chicane are described. A suite of diagnostics is employed including a three-screen emittance section, a FIR coherent transition radiation autocorrelator, electron spectrometers, and an optical diagnostics end station. An energy chirp impressed on the beam is used to compress the 1-2 ps, rms bunch as it passes through the chicane. With compression, bunch lengths of 170-200 fs, rms at 450 pC are measured, and coherent optical transition radiation (COTR) due to the microbunching instability is observed. Mitigation techniques of the COTR in the beam profile diagnostics are demonstrated both spectrally and temporally. At 100 pC without compression normalized transverse emittances of 1.8 and 2.7 microns are observed in the x and y planes, in reasonable agreement with initial ASTRA simulations.

The APS storage ring is a 7-GeV electron storage ring with a single-bunch current of up to 16 mA during normal user operations. To overcome beam instability we employ both chromatic correction and bunch-by- bunch feedback system. Typically we run a chromaticity of 4 for a 24-single fill pattern and 9 for a hybrids fill pattern in both planes with the feedback system loops closed. The APS upgrade (APS-U) calls for a beam current of 150 mA and installation of vertical deflecting cavities for short X-ray (SPX) production. In order to estimate whether the current chromatic correction and feedback system are adequate for the upgrade, we performed coherent damping rate measurements with two methods: kicking the beam with a kicker pulse and exciting the beam with the feedback system. We conclude that with a chromaticity of 4 in both planes, we can achieve a damping rate of 3 kHz in the x- plane and 2 kHz in the y-plane with feedback loops closed. Similar damping rates can also be achieved with chromatic correction alone. A special fitting program was developed to perform the damping rate analysis. This report presents the measurement data and results of the analysis.
