  Beam design and beam optics studies for the HIE-ISOLDE transfer lines have been carried out in MadX, and benchmarked against Trace3D results. Magnet field errors and alignment imperfections leading to deviations from design parameters have been treated explicitly, and the sensitivity of the machine's lattice to different individual error sources was studied. As a result, the tolerances for the various error-contributions have been specified for the different equipment systems. The design choices for the expected magnet field and power supply quality, alignment tolerances, instrument resolution and physical aperture were validated. The methodology and results of the studies are presented.

  The world’s first proton driven plasma wakefield acceleration experiment is presently being studied at CERN. The experiment will use a high energy proton beam extracted from the SPS as driver. Two possible locations for installing the AWAKE facility are considered: the West Area and the CNGS long baseline beam-line. The previous transfer line from the SPS to the West Area was completely dismantled in 2000 and it would need to be fully re-designed and re-built. For this option, geometric constraints for radio protection reasons would limit the maximum proton beam energy to 300 GeV. The existing CNGS line could be used by applying only minor changes to the final part of the lattice for the final focusing and the interface between the proton beam and the laser, required for plasma ionisation and bunch-modulation seeding. The beam line design studies performed for the two options are presented.

  The LHC injectors are being upgraded to meet the demanding beam specification required for High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) operation. In order to reduce the beam losses which can trigger the sensitive LHC beam loss interlocks during the SPS-to-LHC beam injection process, it is important that the beam tails are properly scraped away in the SPS. The current SPS tail cleaning system relies on a moveable scraper blade, with the positioning of the scraper adjusted over time according to the orbit variations of the SPS. A new robust beam tail cleaning system has been designed which will use a fixed scraper block towards which the beam will be moved by a local magnetic orbit bump. The design proposal is presented, together with the related beam dynamics studies and results from machine studies with beam.

  To mitigate electron clouds in particle accelerators, a carbon coating with low SEY has been developed. In the case of the SPS (Super Proton Synchrotron), which belongs to the LHC injector chain, testing the performance of coated beam pipes directly in the accelerator must cope with the schedule of the regular machine operation. For this reason an alternative instrument based on RF induced multipacting in a coaxial configuration has been designed for ex-situ characterization of the main bending dipoles of the SPS. In this contribution we report the results obtained before and after coating for two 6.4 meter dipoles with different cross sections of the vacuum chambers. The multipacting is monitored by measuring the pressure rise and the RF reflected power. After coating, the power threshold to induce multipacting is strongly reduced indicating a lower propensity for electron cloud. The impact of the RF coupling on the sensitivity of the technique is discussed.
