The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) at RAL has collected extensive data to study the ionization cooling of muons. Several million individual particle tracks have been recorded passing through a series of focusing magnets in a number of different configurations and a liquid hydrogen or lithium hydride absorber. Measurement of the tracks upstream and downstream of the absorber has shown the expected effects of the 4D emittance reduction. Further studies are providing now more and deeper insight.

Multiple Coulomb scattering and energy loss are well known phenomena experienced by charged particles as they traverse a material. However, from recent measurements by the MuScat collaboration, it is known that the simulation code (GEANT4) available at the time overestimated the scattering of muons in low Z materials. Updates to GEANT4 have brought the simulations in line with the MuScat data and these new models can be validated over a larger range of momentum, 170-250 MeV/c, with MICE data. This is of particular interest to the Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) collaboration which has the goal of measuring the reduction of the emittance of a muon beam induced by energy loss in low Z absorbers. MICE took data without magnetic field suitable for multiple scattering measurements in the spring of 2016 using a lithium hydride absorber and in the fall of 2017 using a liquid hydrogen absorber. The measurement in lithium hydride is reported here along with the preliminary measurements in liquid hydrogen. In the fall of 2016 MICE took data with magnetic fields on and measured the energy loss of muons in a lithium hydride absorber. These data are all compared with the Bethe-Bloch formula and with the predictions of various models, including the default GEANT4 model.

MOPRB105 Measurement and Analysis of Beam Phase-space Distributions for the Fermilab Muon Campus accelerator complex quadrupole, emittance, experiment, simulation 810

  The Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab is tasked with measuring the muon’s anomalous magnetic moment with high precision. Since the experiment requires large amounts of muons, it is imperative to systematically study the behavior of the beam along the transport line. Unfortunately, the available diagnostics only provide beam information in X-Y space. For a complete evaluation, information of the phase-space is required. This paper demonstrates a technique to measure the beam phase-space distribution by using a set of beam profiles. First, we establish the theoretical framework that describes the principle of the technique. Next, we apply the technique at four different locations along the accelerator delivery line. Finally, we compare our findings to predictions from tracking simulations. Our results indicate that the beam phase-space volume is conserved, along the beam delivery line, suggesting minimal loses and linear transport as expected by design. Compared to the simulations, there is good agreement in both horizontal and vertical plane with the former being at the 4% level while the latter being in the 15% level. Our proposed technique is expected to provide a promising approach for optimizing injection and thereby improving the performance of the Muon g-2 Experiment.

  Harmonics method in the frequency domain is an effective and inexpensive bunch length measurement method, which was implemented at the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF). A multi-frequency bunch-bybunch length measurement system using an integrated RF conditioning module will be established to reduce the system noise and signal reflection, and to improve the bunch length measurement accuracy as well. The module consists of power splitters, band-pass filters, mixers and so on. The main function of the integrated RF conditioning module is to extract the beam signals at 500MHz, 1.5GHz, 2GHz, and 3GHz operating frequency. Raw data are acquired by a high-precision digitizer and analyzed by MATLAB code. The absolute bunch length can be obtained with a streak camera, which was used to calibrate the response coefficients of the system. Bunch-by-bunch length can be measured by the multi-frequency harmonic analysis method from the button BPM

  Within the framework of Horizon 2020 project, Compact Light, in order to provide a high performance, high-gradient X-band technology, for the new generation of hard X-ray FEL, a travelling wave (TW) Linac, working on 2pi/3 mode at 11.9952 GHz, fed by two types of asymmetrically couplers, has been designed. The design was performed using CST Microwave Studio frequency domain solver. First, simulations have been conduct in order to obtain the best trade-off between single cell’s parameters, varying iris aperture. Then, the both couplers, with and without pumping port, has been tuned to avoid reflections at the input port. Finally, the entire structure, with 5 cells, was simulated. The main structure parameters will be present and we will also show and discuss the acceleranting gradient obtained vary with linac lenght and input power.

Thermionic energy converters (TEC) are a class of thermoelectric devices, which promise improvements to the efficiency and cost of both small- and large-scale electricity generation. A TEC is comprised of a narrowly-separated thermionic emitter and an anode. Simple structures are often space-charge limited as operating temperatures produce currents exceeding the Child-Langmuir limit. We present results from 3D simulations of these devices using the particle-in-cell code Warp, developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. We demonstrate improvements to the Warp code permitting high fidelity simulations of complex device geometries. These improvements include modeling of non-conformal geometries using mesh refinement and cut-cells with a dielectric solver, in addition to importing geometries directly from standard CAD output. In this paper we showcase some of these new features and demonstrate their use.

  The problem of optimisation of beamline structures is studied, from the point of view of multi-objective genetic algorithms. While this approach has been successfully used in the exploration of potential particle accelerator lattices, it has never been applied to beamline design. In this paper, the Non-Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II (NGSA II) is used to optimize a structure where photons are assumed to propagate through the optical elements according to the wavefront model as implemented in SRW. It is shown that appropriate objective functions can help to set up an interesting set of parameters, with competitive computational resources compared to the traditional approach. Examples illustrating this optimization method are shown in the context of DIAMOND.

  Running CERN complex of accelerators and infrastructure requires the seamless collaboration of many people, such as operators, experts and people-on-call to name only a few. Distributed in teams from different groups, it is important to centralise schedule planning and operational information and make this information readily available. In BE/OP these tasks are handled by two applications to manage shift work as well as piquet and expert services. At the beginning of 2018, a project was started to replace the ageing web piquet application. While collecting requirements we realised a more flexible application was needed to suit a broader set of customers, and to offer a more generic, people- oriented tool. The new planning tool consists of two separate applications: The Planning Manager, which is used to organise work schedules of a teams members, and to keep each group’s planning up-to-date, coherently, and visible to all involved. The Planning Dashboard, which allows any user to create a customised view of the available services they use.

THPRB028 Redesign of the JavaFX Charts Library in View of Real-Time Visualisation of Scientific Data interface, controls, real-time, experiment 3868

  The accurate graphical representation of accelerator- or beam-based parameters is crucial for commissioning and operation in any modern accelerator. Charts are one of the most visible but at the same time often underappreciated accelerator control system components even though these are crucial for easing and improving a quick intuitive understanding of complex or large quantities of data, which in turn is used to efficiently control, troubleshoot or improve the accelerator performance. While the Java SDK and other third-party libraries provide some charting components, we found that these lack either functionality, performance, or are based on outdated complex APIs. Based on earlier GSI and CERN designs and careful analysis of missing functionalities, performance bottlenecks, and long-term maintenance risks for the necessary workarounds, we decided that it was worth to re-engineer a new scientific charting library that preserves the functionality of established other libraries while addressing the performance bottlenecks and APIs issues. The new library offers a wide variety of plot types common in the scientific community, a flexible plugin system to extend the functionality towards chart interactors as well as online parameter measurements commonly found in oscilloscopes. Tailored towards high performance, it achieves real-time update rates up to 25 Hz for data sets with a few 10k up to 5 million data points. The new API shields the complexity from and eases the library’s use by normal users, while still being modular and having explicitly open interfaces that allow more-inclined developers to modify, add or extend missing functionalities. This contribution provides a performance and functionality comparison with other existing Java-based charting libraries.
