The low energy ring (LER) in PEP-II has a design emittance of 0.5 nm-rad in the vertical, compared to nearly 0.1 nm-rad for the HER ring. This was thought to come from the "vertical step" of about 1 m in the interaction straight, where the LER beam after horizontal separation gets bend vertical so it sits on top of the HER in the rest of the ring. Since the program MAD does not easily reveal the location of the major emittance contribution, a program was written to calculate the coupled "curly H" parameter of mode 2 (mainly vertical) along z. Weighting it with the magnet bending revealed that the weak long bends inside the "vertical step" did less than 20% of the emittance growth. More than 80% comes from the ends of the adjacent arcs with strong bends. This is caused by the coupling cancellation of the solenoid starting already there with the skew quadrupoles SK5 and 6. By introducing additional skews in the straight instead of SK5 and 6 the emittance could be reduced by a factor of ten in simulations, but with very strong skews. Reasonable strong magnets might generate a workable compromise, since a factor of two in emittance promises 50% more luminosity in beam-beam simulations.

For optics measurement and modeling of the PEP-II electron (HER) and position (LER) storage rings, we have been doing well with MIA* which requires analyzing turn-by-turn Beam Position Monitor (BPM) data that are resonantly excited at the horizontal, vertical, and longitudinal tunes respectively. However, in anticipating that certain BPM buttons or even pins in the PEP-II IR region will be missing for the next run starting in January 2007, we have been developing a data validation process, hoping to reduce the effect due to the reduced BPM data accuracy on PEP-II optics measurement and modeling. Besides the routine process for ranking BPM noise level through data correlation among BPMs, allowing BPMs to have linear gains and linear cross couplings, we can also check BPM data symplecticity by comparing the invariant ratios. We may also work out nonlinear BPM data correction if needed. Results on PEP-II measurement will be presented.
