  The extraction efficiency and spill temporal-structure of the SIS-18 heavy ion synchrotron are part of the upgrades to the GSI accelerator complex. Losses to the extraction septum can be minimised through implementation of the Hardt condition resulting however in a poorer quality of the spill microstructure at resolutions of a few microseconds due to lowering of the horizontal chromaticity from its 'natural' value. Ways to improve the extraction efficiency and spill microstructure are investigated with a tracking code. One possibility for improvement may be to use an alternative RF modulation applied to the knock-out exciter.

  To stabilize the dynamic pressure in the SIS18, the systematic initial beam loss must be minimized. Beam Particles, which are lost on the vaccum chamber cause a local pressure increase. Thereby the collision rate between beam ions and residual gas particles and consequently beam loss by ionization is enhanced. The reduction and control of beam loss in the injection channel, during multiturn injection and during the Rf capture process has an outstanding importance for the vacuum dynamics. One way to minimize the initial losses in the synchrotron is to displace the beam loss into the transfer channel (TK) between UNILAC and SIS. In the transfer channel, the beam edges are trimmed by means of a collimator system and a sharply defined phase space area can be injected into SIS18. The effect of reduced initial beam loss on the vaccum dynamics is presented.

  SIS100 is a unique superconducting heavy ion synchrotron, optimized for the acceleration of intense beams of intermediate charge state heavy ions. The operation with such beams has required new synchrotron design features and new technical concepts aiming for minimized ionization beam loss and vacuum dynamics. SIS100 is a superconducting synchrotron because of the required vacuum conditions and pumping power to achieve stable XHV conditions at high intensity operation. The project and procurement status will be presented.
