TUZAAB02  Recent Developments in Understanding Beam Loss in Highintensity Synchrotrons  794 


Recent advances in understanding spacechargeinduced beam loss and emittance growth have been achieved, which allow quantitative predictions for large number of turns (exceeding 10^{5}). In this talk we review the theoretical model of trapping by space charge effects, simulation results and experimental findings obtained at the CERN Proton Synchrotron and the heavy ion synchrotron SIS18 at GSI. The impact of these effects on the beam loss budget/beam loss control for heavy ion beams in the SIS100 synchrotron in the FAIR project will be presented. Applications of these mechanisms to ecloud space charge interaction with hadron beams in the LHC will be also be discussed.

THPAN016  Improving the SIS18 Performance by use of the Orbit Response Method  3256 


The SIS18 will be used as a booster for the new FAIR facility SIS100. A wellcontrolled linear optics of the SIS18 is necessary for further optimisation studies of nonlinear dynamics, resonance induced beam loss, dynamic aperture and nonlinear error measurements. The analysis of the orbit response matrix (ORM) is a powerful tool to calibrate the linear lattice models. We present results of several measurements on the SIS18 using the ORM and discuss the achieved improvement of the SIS18 performance.  
THPAN017  Scaling Laws for Space Charge Driven Resonances  3259 


Intrinsic fourth order space charge resonances may occur in linear as well as circular accelerators. The difference resonance ("emittance exchange" or "Montague" resonance) and the fourth order structure resonance lead to emittance variations depending on the strength of space charge, the crossing rate and the lattice. We present scaling laws for the Montague coupling resonance and for the fourth order structure resonance in terms of simple power law expressions that allow a straightforward application in design of accelerators subject to these mechanism.  
THPAN030  Transverse SelfConsistent Modeling of a 3D Bunch in SIS100 with MICROMAP  3292 


Funding: EUDESIGN STUDY (contract 515873  DIRACsecondaryBeams) We present the upgrade of the MICROMAP beam dynamics simulation library to include a 2 1/2 D space charge modeling of a 3D bunch using local slices in z. We discuss the parallelization technique, the performances, several tests and comparison with existing wellestablished analytical/numerical results in order to validate the code. An application to the SIS100 synchrotron of the FAIR project at GSI is outlined. 

THPAN074  SpaceCharge Compensation Options for the LHC Injector Complex  3390 


Spacecharge effects have been identified as the most serious intensity limitation in the CERN PS and PS booster, on the way towards ultimate LHC performance and beyond. We here explore the application of several previously proposed spacecompensation methods to the two LHC preinjector rings, for each scheme discussing its potential benefit, ease of implementation, beamdynamics risk, and the R&D programme required. The methods considered include tune shift and resonance compensation via octupoles, nonlinear chromaticity, or electron lenses, and beam neutralization by an electron cloud, plasma or negative ions.  
THPAN075  Modeling Incoherent Electron Cloud Effects  3393 


Incoherent effects driven by an electron cloud could seriously limit the beam lifetime in proton storage rings or blow up the vertical emittance in positron ones. Different approaches to modeling these effects each have their own merits and drawbacks. We compare the simulation results and computing time requirements from a number of dedicated codes under development over the last years, and describe the respective approximations for the beamelectron cloud interaction, the accelerator structure, and the optical lattice, made in each of these codes. Examples considered include the LHC, CERN SPS, RHIC, and the ILC damping ring. Tentative conclusions are drawn and a strategy for further codes development is outlined.
