TI - Coupled Bunch Instabilities Growth in the Fermilab Booster During Acceleration Cycle J2 - Proc. of HB2021, Batavia, IL, USA, 04-08 October 2021 CY - Batavia, IL, USA T2 - ICFA ABDW on High-Intensity and High-Brightness Hadron Beams T3 - 64 LA - english AB - The Fermilab Booster is an RCS with h=84 and gammaT =5.47 and, during standard operation it accelerates ~4.5E12ppBc from 400 MeV to 8 GeV at 15 Hz. The Booster is being upgraded to handle higher beam intensity >6.7E12ppBc and repetition rate of 20Hz. In the current mode of operation, we perform multi-turn beam injection and capture beam in h=84 system adiabatically. However, we have observed coupled bunch (CB) instabilities in the extracted beam. This issue is expected to worsen at higher beam intensities. In principle, for h=84 one expects 41 modes of oscillations contributing to these CB instabilities. Currently, we have a digital mode damper to mitigate prominent CB modes . We would like to understand at what time in the beam cycle a particular mode is going to originate and how much it contributes at a different time of the cycle. In this regard, we have collected wall current monitor data from injection to extraction and looked for the start of a particular mode of CB instability and its growth for different intensities. This paper presents the results from this study and future plans to mitigate the CB instability in Booster.
