  The East Area is one of CERNs experimental area, running since its foundation in 1958. Extracting a 24GeV proton beam from the Proton Synchrotron accelerator, the primary beam is divided into different secondary beams, serving various experiments and user’s facilities such as CLOUD, CHARM, IRRAD. Due to improved optics and an energy saving scheme, the facility will go under a renovation between 2019 and 2020, including the replacement of the magnets with new laminated ones to allow a cycled powering scheme. Those magnets need improved supports, and in some cases even a new design, to optimize the alignment operations in those areas. This article will mainly address the different proposed solutions for plug-in supports as well as for conventional ones.

  CERN’s East Experimental Area, situated on the Swiss side of the Meyrin site, with its four beamlines, has served physics for more than 40 years. As the building and equipment are reaching their end of life, a thorough consolidation project has been initiated in order to pro-vide many more years of reliable operation. This article addresses the different proposed solutions to reduce significantly the energy consumption of the East Area. It outlines the methodology applied to estimate as precisely as possible the future attained energy savings, which will result in an estimated reduction of approximately 80% in electricity usage (from 11 GWh to 2 GWh per year) and of approximately 65% in gas usage for heating purpose (from 3 GWh to 1 GWh per year).

  Sirius is a 3 GeV fourth-generation synchrotron light source under commissioning in Brazil, with 518 m circumference and a bare lattice emittance of 0.25 nm.rad. This ultra-low emittance machine is based on approximately 700 magnets with 28 mm typical gap. The standard vacuum chamber, that makes up around 80% of the circumference, is a 26 mm external diameter copper tube. Due to the small conductance of the chambers and the limited space between the magnets, the vacuum pumping will be based on distributed concept and then non­-evaporable getter (NEG) coating will be extensively used. To activate the NEG coating, the chambers must be heated at 200°C for about 24 hours. The solution for Sirius was the development of an ultra-thin heating tape, 0.4 mm thick, which allows an in-situ bake-out. The developed tapes are able to operate continuously at 220°C and have in their design a thermal shield that reduces the radiation heat loss to the magnets. This paper describes the development of the heating tape, its power supply, the control software and the operation of the system during the NEG activation at Sirius.

Additive manufacturing allows the production of mechanical components often much faster than traditional manufacturing. Several accelerators components built using additive manufacturing have already been qualified for use in accelerator. A workshop was held in Orsay in December 2018 to discuss the prospects of using additive manufacturing for particle accelerators and particle detectors. We report here on the prospects as far as accelerators are concerned.

The effects of high beam currents and different types of electron sources on the emittance of the beam at the 3.5 MeV beamline of the Mainzer Microtron MAMI were observed. A thermionic BaO source and a GaAs-based photo-source that allows spin polarization were used. In order to measure the beam size, a new type of wire scanner was utilized. The results show maximum normalized emittance values in the order of a few hundred nmrad for both sources, which lies distinctly within the acceptance of the higher energy stages of the accelerator.

  The Future Circular Collider (FCC) is one possible future successor of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The proton-proton collider center-of-mass collision energy is set to 100 TeV with a beam current of 0.5 A. To achieve this energy a stable acceleration is critical and therefore higher order modes (HOM) need to be damped. HOM dampers, further characterized as couplers, need to fulfill several criteria to be efficient. As a first property the couplers should assure a longitudinal impedance of higher order modes of below 10 kW. Furthermore, the loaded Q-factor should be below 1000 and the corresponding R/Q value should be in the range of 10 Ω. Besides the Hook-type and Probe-type HOM coupler two additional designs were simulated. The recent results of the different couplers attached to a superconducting 400 MHz RF cavity will be presented.

  Inspecting ultra-high vacuum pipe systems of particle accelerators without disassembling the beam pipes is a complex challenge. In particular, curved sections of particle accelerators require a unique approach for the examination of the interior. For the planned heavy ion synchrotron SIS100 at FAIR, an inspection robot is currently under development, featuring an optical imaging system with which the robot can be navigated through the beam pipe. We present the current prototype, which is based on a modular snake-like robot with active wheels and joints. Due to the stipulated low movement velocity, it can be shown that a kinematic model is sufficient to control the robot whereas dynamical effects can be neglected. This concept is proven in experiments with the prototype. At the current development status, the robot is controlled manually by setting the velocity of the first module and its desired turning angle. In simulations we include a CAD model of a dipole chamber of the SIS100 and let an operator successfully navigate the robot through the beam pipe while only observing the camera image.

  Alumina ceramics vacuum chamber which is used for the 3GeV rapid-cycling synchrotron (RCS) in J-PARC is composed of alumina duct, titanium (Ti) flanges and Ti sleeves. Before brazing the alumina duct and the Ti sleeves, the Ti sleeves were treated with nitric hydrofluoric acid. The purpose of this study is to clear the effect of this treatment for titanium material. It was cleared by SEM observation that the roughness of the titanium material after the nitric hydrofluoric acid treatment becomes big. It was also measured that the thickness of oxide film on surface of the titanium material was 12.7 nm before treatment and 6.0 nm after treatment. As a result of measuring the wettability of the brazing material which was silver brazing filler metal (Ag: 72%, Cu: 28%) on the Ti surface and the diffusion of the Ti material into the brazing material, it became clear that both the clearing of oxide layer on the alumina ceramics and the vacuum condition of the vacuum heating furnace were important for brazing between alumina ceramics and pure titanium.

  HEPS is a new generation synchrotron facility on construction with very low emittance. Stringent requirements are proposed to the design of mechanical support. The alignment error between girders should be less than 50μm. Based on that, the adjusting resolution of the girder are required to be less than 5μm in both transverse and vertical directions. Besides, the Eigen frequency of magnet & girder assembly should be higher than 54Hz to avoid the amplification of ground vibrations. To fulfill these requirements, studies on mechanical support design is now being carried out in HEPS. This paper will describe the design and progress of those work.

  The measurement of beam profile by hadron monitor is in fact the measurement of the positive current after the secondary electrons escaped. According to the situation that the number of beam particles is small and the current signal is weak, the material titanium with high secondary electron generation rate is select by material comparison, and the foil strip type is used to increase the cross section area to obtain lager current level. On account of dead weight itself, as well as thermal expansion and contraction, the foil strip shall be loose. The loosen strip will deviate from its theoretical position, and cause the measuring error. Therefore, the deformation-stress of Ti foil strip (1000*50*0.1) was simulated under the pretension (10~90N) with the finite element software ANSYS. A set of experiment device with pretension adjustment and heating for the foil strip was designed, and then the deformation-stress was tested by a high precision 3-D imaging measurement system. Compared with the simulation results, the pretension would better set at about 50N.

  This paper presents a design of a compact variable X-band RF power splitter. The RF power splitter includes one input port and two output ports, and the power divi-sion ratio can be adjusted by changing the position of a short circuit piston. This system keeps a good match (less than -40 dB) at any power division ratio. An E-bend waveguide structure is selected to make the geometry more compact (11cm in length, 3.5cm in width and 5 cm in height). Special studies was conducted to sustain a low surface electrical field (maximum 65 MV/m at 100 MW input), and large bandwidth (250MHz). This power split-ter is designed for high-power test stand at Tsinghua Uni-versity.

  SwissFEL, the new Free-Electron Laser facility is a 740 m long accelerator with the goal of providing pulses of light between 6 and 30 fs long at a wavelength of 1 to 7 Å at 100 Hz*. To support shot-to-shot photon diagnostic* and link the measurements to other measurements along the machine that belong to the same machine pulse, a new triggering and data acquisition system was developed. A new protocol was introduced which allows deterministic triggering, configuration and data transfer via one full-duplex optical connection. The measurement data is stamped with an unique pulse identifier, delivered from the SwisFEL Timing System**. A readout and control interface was developed to support data delivery to the Data Acquisition Dispatching Layer* and for controlling the system.

  The High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) and the LIU (LHC-Injection Upgrade) projects at CERN are upgrading the whole CERN accelerators chain, increasing beam brightness and intensity. In this scenario, some critical machine components have to be redesigned and rebuilt. Due to the increase in beam intensity, minimizing the electromagnetic interaction between the beam and the device is a crucial design task. Indeed, these interactions could lead to beam instabilities and excessive thermo-mechanical loadings in the device. In this context, this paper presents an example of multi-physics study to investigate the impedance related thermal effects. The analysis is performed on the conceptual design of the new proton synchrotron (PS) internal dump.

  Abstract Since 2014, TPS Linac system has been operating regularly. In order to keep a high stability during a long operating time, it is important to develop a monitoring system to monitor all sub-systems, parameters, including setting values, reading values, control inputs and outputs. This system is not only recording all above mentioned parameters, but also provides an efficient diagnosis in case of troubleshooting. Because the controlling system in TPS Linac is using Siemens S7-300 PLCs, Simatic WinCC is utilized to develop a historical archiving, operational analyses, and operator activities in operation. This paper attempts to show a complete solution for the integrated software structure and its resulting process analysis.

  On the control system hardware platform for the Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) more than half use CompactPCI crates. If a crate malfunctions, the internal crate card will not operate properly affecting accelerator operation. If the crate, however, could provide instant remote operational information, an opportunity exists to maintain or replace it in advance. Therefore, a diagnostic tool was developed to analyse and diagnose the condition of the crates. When abnormal operations occur, an alarm can be issued for early inspection and maintenance. This way it is possible to prevent the EPICS IOC from crashing by CompactPCI crates, which improves the reliability of accelerator operation. A detailed system architecture, implementation and progress will be discussed in this report.

  An SLAC-like Compact Linac installed on the HUST FEL-THz has been used as an injector to produce high power THz radiation. To meet the requirements of monochromaticity and repeatability for FEL, performance of electron beam and stability of RF system are notable. According to the existing facility, based on measurement results of RF jitter, instability of beam has been calculated, and it has been verified in relevant experiments.

Although great progress was made with in-situ copper coating, by magnetron sputtering, to address the high room temperature resistivity, literature indicates that conventionally deposited thick copper films do not retain the same RF conductivity at cryogenic temperatures, since straightforward deposition tends to result in films with columnar structure and other lattice defects, which cause significant conductivity degradation at cryogenic temperatures. We utilize energetic ions for ion assisted deposition (IAD) to reduce lattice imperfections, for coating. IAD that can in-situ coat long small diameter tubes with compacted crystalline structure thick copper films has been developed. Moreover, development of techniques and devices can resurrect IAD for other applications, which have been impractical and/or not viable economically. Comparison of conductivity at cryogenic temperatures between straight magnetron physical vapor deposition and IAD will be presented.

A unique apparatus for measuring RF resistivity of tubes and coated tubes at cryogenic temperatures is operational at BNL, which to our knowledge is the first of its kind. A folded quarter wave resonator structure of 300 mm length accesses a wide range of frequencies. The structure is cooled in liquid He bath at 4 K. All internal resonator components (except for test samples) were fabricated out of superconducting materials. Consequently, when the resonator is cooled, the bulk of the losses are due to the copper coating. The RF resistivity is determined from Q measurements, since for a fixed geometry the quality factor of a resonant cavity is proportional to the square root of the conductivity. The RF input loop and the output signal antenna are adjustable when cold via bellows to control matching to each cavity mode. The Q values of 10 resonant modes between 180 and 2500 MHz are deduced from the bandwidth of the S21 response Network Analyzer measurements. CST MicroWave Studio is used to extract the resistivity of the samples from the Q measurements. Resistivity results of solid Cu tube, 2, 5, & 10 μm Cu coated 316LN stainless steel RHIC beam tubes will be presented.

Accelerator online alignment technology is an important means for accelerator stability detecting. A CCD-based laser alignment detection system is designed for the linear accelerator, and the detection distance of the system could reach 100m. The reference comparison method is used to detect the laser imaging position acquired by the reference detector at different times, and to obtain the relative positional deviation of the measurement reference or the tested objects. Through the measurement error analysis, the precision of the system is expected to reach ±10μm.

The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), like many other accelerator facilities, was built decades ago and has been repurposed when new missions were adopted. With an ongoing beam availability expectation of at least 80% delivered to the Experimental Areas (EAs), a balance between cost of spare equipment and budget has always been a challenge. Beam availability data has been meticulously captured and binned over the years to completely characterize the Structures, Systems and Components (SSCs) and other factors that have caused or contributed to accelerator downtime. Over these years, a critical spares list prioritized the spare equipment purchases that were deemed most critical by the management team. In the span of the years 2013 ’ 2015, significant accelerator upgrades and equipment replacements were performed in a set of activities known as LANSCE-RM. Last year, a new risk-based approach was developed by the management team that included an analytical assessment and a quantitative evaluation of probability and consequence. The resulting risk register (risk-based equipment list) is being used to guide decisions on funding requests and provide justification to mitigate operational risks. A paper by the same authors was published at LINAC 2018 describing this risk-based approach that serves to reformulate the critical spares list. This paper, in the sections that follow, expands on the approach by detailing the specific results of the analyses that led to the first risk register. Additionally, it evaluates the historical beam downtime at LANSCE compared to the current funding allocation choices made to increase the reliability.
