Manifestation of intrabeam scattering (IBS) in an electron/positron storage ring depends on the radiation damping time in two ways. First, the beam size is the equilibrium of the IBS growth rate in each of the three degrees of freedom and corresponding damping rates. Second, scattering events that occur less frequently than order once per damping time contribute to non-Gaussian tails that are invisible to our beam size monitors. The tail cut procedure excludes these relatively rare events in the calculation of equilibrium beam size. In machines with short damping times, the tail cut significantly reduces the effective IBS growth rate. At CesrTA, we measure the dependence of beam size on bunch charge in IBS-dominated beams. We vary the vertical emittance using a closed optics bump that increases the vertical dispersion and transverse coupling in the wiggler regions. Measurements are taken at both 2.1 and 2.3 GeV. Here we report the results of these experiments and compare those results to theory.

In storage rings, the presence of horizontal dispersion in the RF cavities introduces x-z coupling. The result is that the beam is skewed in the horizontal-longitudinal plane. The skew angle is proportional to the V15 term of the 6X6 coupling matrix which is proportional to the RF cavity voltage and the horizontal dispersion in the cavity. Here we report experiments at CesrTA where x-z coupling was explored using three distinct lattice configurations with different V15 coupling terms. We explore x-z coupling for each of these lattices by measuring the horizontal projection of the beam with a beam size monitor, as the RF voltage is varied. The first lattice has about 1 m dispersion in the RF cavities, resulting in a V15 term at the beam size monitor source point corresponding to 16 mrad x-z tilt. In the second, the V15 generated in one pair of cavities is compensated at the second pair by adjusting the horizontal betatron phase advance between the cavity pairs. In the third, the optics are adjusted so that the RF cavity region is dispersion-free, eliminating the coupling entirely. Additionally, intra-beam scattering is evident in our measurements of beam size vs. RF voltage.

Energy-Recovery Linacs (ERLs) are proposed as drivers for hard x-ray sources because of their ability to produce electron bunches with small, flexible cross sections and short lengths at high repetition rates. Cornell University has pioneered the design and hardware for ERL lightsources. This preparatory research for ERL-lightsource construction will be discussed. Important milestones have been achieved in Cornell's prototype ERL injector, including the production of a prototype SRF cavity that exceeds design specifications, the regular production of long-lived and low emittance cathodes, the acceleration of ultra-low emittance bunches, and the world-record of 65 mA current from a photoemission DC gun. We believe that demonstration of the practical feasibility of these technologies have progressed sufficiently to allow the construction of an ERL-based lightsource like that described in [].
