  COSY is a cooler synchrotron designed for internal target hadron physics experiments, equipped with both electron cooling system and stochastic cooling system. During the past couple of years, COSY has been evolved into an ideal test facility for accelerator technology development as well as detector development for the Facility of Anti-proton and Ion Research at Darmstadt (FAIR). In addition, COSY has been the test ground for exploring the feasibility of a storage ring based Electric Dipole Moment (EDM) measurement. The proposed precursor experiment of a direct measurement of the EDM of the deuteron at COSY using an RF wien filter by the Jülich Electric Dipole moment Investigation (JEDI) requests significant improvement of beam based measurements as well as beam control. In this paper, first results of measured linear optics based on AT-LOCO are reported. Simulation studies are also discussed.

The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) has two main operating modes with heavy ions and polarized protons respectively. In addition to a continuous increase in the bunch intensity in all modes, two major new systems were completed recently mitigating the main luminosity limit and leading to significant performance improvements. For heavy ion operation stochastic cooling mitigates the effects of intrabeam scattering, and for polarized proton operation head-on beam-beam compensation mitigated the beam-beam effect. We present the performance increases with these upgrades for heavy ions and polarized protons, as well as an overview of all operating modes past and planned.

THPMB009 Model Driven Machine Improvement of COSY Based on ORM Data 3240

  The COoler SYnchrotron in Jülich accelerates and stores unpolarized and polarized proton or deuteron beams in the momentum range between 0.3 GeV/c and 3.65 GeV/c [*,**]. This, in combination with its diverse capabilities of phase space cooling and the flexibility of the lattice with respect to ion-optical settings makes COSY an ideal test facility for accelerator technology development. High demands on beam control and beam based measurements have to be fulfilled for future experiments such as the proposed precursor experiment for a direct measurement of the electric dipole moment of the deuteron (see [***] and references within). The analysis of measured orbit response matrices (ORM), which com- prise the focussing structure of the ring, allows for a better understand- ing of machine imperfections such as gradient errors and misalignments of quadrupole magnets. This contribution presents the development of a MAD-X based LOCO (Linear Optics from Closed Orbits) algorithm [****] in a C++ program aiming to calibrate and correct linear optics as well as improving beam control at COSY.
