  In the annual shutdown period of 2012, three bunch shape monitors (BSMs) have been installed to the J-PARC linac beam transport line at the downstream of the 181-MeV separated DTL. To measure the longitudinal micro-bunch shape, the BSM detects the electrons produced by the accelerated protons hitting the negatively energized wire. Due to the space limitation, the each BSM is installed at the center of the quadrupole doublet, where the fringe field from the quadrupole magnets exists. It has been observed that the fringe field significantly affects the orbit of the emitted electrons. To shield the magnetic field, iron plates have been inserted to the spaces between the quadrupole magnets and BSM. This causes changes of the total magnetic flux density (GL) and the amount of quadrupole component of the fringe field. In this paper, numerical estimation of the shield effect is presented.

  The linac of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) is the injector to the 3-GeV rapid cycle synchrotron. In order to increase the beam power of the synchrotron, the task of the 400-MeV energy upgrade of the linac started from March 2009. Following the 191-MeV Separated-type DTL, the 25 modules of the Annular-ring Coupled Structure (ACS) linac will be added from August 2013. The operating frequency and the accelerating field E0 of the ACS are 972 MHz and 4.2 MV/m, respectively. The cavity fabrication of the ACS has been almost finished, and then the completed cavities are stored in the J-PARC site. Currently, pumps and vacuum components are being installed on the cavities for the test of vacuum condition. For the pulsed beam of J-PARC, the vacuum pressure have to be less than 10-6 Pa in order not to exceed 0.1 W/m beam loss. In this paper, we present the R&D results to reduce the vacuum pressure using the stored ACS cavity and the current status of the energy upgrade.
