Funding: CLS supports the upgrade of the 250 MeV linac.
The Canadian Light Source (CLS) 250 MeV linac, originally constructed in the 1960's, serves as the injector for the 2.9 GeV synchrotron radiation facility[1] located on the University of Saskatchewan campus. The linac has operated reasonably well for routine operation of the light source. However, the long-term goal of operating the CLS storage ring in top-up mode will place increased demands on the linac for stability and availability that cannot be met with the existing system. Consequently, an upgrade is planned over the next two years to get higher beam stability, reliability and reproducibility. In this paper, the existing linac system will be described and the planned upgrade will be reported.

A thorough understanding of halo formation and its possible control is highly desirable for essentially all particle accelerators. Limiting the number of particles in the halo region of a beam would allow for minimizing beam losses and maximizing beam transmission, i.e. the experimental output. Measurements based on either optical transition radiation (OTR) or synchrotron radiation (SR) provide an interesting opportunity for high dynamic range measurements of the transverse beam profile, since the signal is linear with the beam charge over a wide range and is routinely used in many diagnostic applications. In this contribution, first results on beam halo measurements obtained from a flexible core masking technique and an innovative CID camera system are summarized.

TUP078 Development of Integrator Circuit for Charge Monitoring controls, linac, injection, electron 576

At the SPring-8 1 GeV linac, a beam current or charge is measured by means of an integrator circuit. A signal from a current transformer is processed into an integrated voltage. The Fast Gated Integrator and Boxcar Averager Module (Stanford Research Systems) is presently used as the integrator. However we plan to expand a dynamic range and an integration time of the integrator. Because the noise level of the present integrator becomes too large for the expansion, we developed a low-noise and high-resolution integrator. Both the present and developed integrators have the same functions such as signal gating, accumulation of analog signal and sample hold. The principal noise of the integrator was found to be a switching noise of the gate switch. To reduce the switching noise a GaAs transfer switch SW-283-PIN (M/A-COM) was adopted as the gate switch. The experimental data of the developed integrator showed 1/10 of the noise level of the present integrator.

In the last decade, stimulated by the success of the energy recovered free electron lasers, many projects have been initiated exploring the applications and limitations of beam energy recovery in recirculated linear accelerators (linacs). In this talk the performance of many existing energy recovered linacs is briefly reviewed. Looking forward, potential applications of energy recovered linacs such as

  1. recirculated linac light sources,
  2. high energy beam electron cooling devices, and
  3. electron beam sources for high energy colliders have been pursued with varying degrees of effort.
The types of new technology that must be developed for applications, and more broadly, some of the open issues regarding this technology, are discussed in detail. The talk concludes with some thoughts on the future developments in this important, and expanding field.

WE102 High Average Current SRF Cavities cavity, linac, HOM, luminosity 693
  • T. Furuya

Higher-order-mode (HOM) free superconducting (SC) single cell cavities were developed for the rf system of high luminosity storage ring colliders. Because of the successful results of these cavities under ampere-class beams, the components and technology of the SC cavities have immediately been applied to the middle sized storage rings upgrading the beam intensity by using a few SC cavities. Beside the storage ring rf, a SC based high intensity proton linac was commissioned for neutron physics. Recently, the feasibility study of energy recovery linacs has been carried at various laboratories aiming for the 4th generation light source. Status of these developments will be described.
