TI - Release of Crystal Routine for Multi-Turn Proton Simulations within SixTrack v5 J2 - Proc. of IPAC2021, Campinas, SP, Brazil, 24-28 May 2021 CY - Campinas, SP, Brazil T2 - International Particle Accelerator Conference T3 - 12 LA - english AB - Crystal collimation is studied as a possible scheme to further improve the efficiency of ion collimation at the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC), as well as for possible applications in the CERN program of Physics Beyond Colliders. This concept relies on the use of bent crystals that can deflect high-energy halo particles at large angles, of the order of tens of urad. In order to reproduce key experimental results of crystal collimation tests and predict the performance of this system when applied to present and future machines, a dedicated simulation routine was developed. This routine is capable of modeling both coherent and incoherent interactions of beam particles with crystal collimators, and is fully integrated into the magnetic tracking and collimator modeling provided by the single-particle tracking code SixTrack. This paper describes the implementation of the routine in the latest version of SixTrack and its most recent improvements, in particular regarding the treatment of the crystal miscut angle.
