Combining equations (2) and (7) gives:

where 4n = p(s)- po +27nv . The trajectory of a particle in (q, ) coordinates is a circle of

radius a. The area of the phase space trajectory is 7ta2, as expected. If a95 denotes the phase

space circle containing 95% of the beam, then the emittance, 8 , is given by 8 =7r a95 .

C. Determination of the Transverse Distribution of the Beam

It is assumed in what follows that, prior to scraping, the transverse distribution of the beam

is static at the location of the scraper. The transverse beam distribution can be written as

N(q, ), where N(q,ir)did gives the number of beam particles in the phase space element

between (q, r) and (q + dry,i + dr). The q distribution of the beam is given by:

dN(ri) - N (9)

dN(i) gives the number of particles with q between q and q + dry.

It is more convenient to deal with the amplitude, a, than . Using rj2 +2 = a2, the

distribution function N(q, a)da is determined from N(q, r )dr as follows:

N(q, )di = N(q, a) a da

a(a,a)

(10)

= N(q, a) 2a da (a >ig)

Va2 _ l2

where N(l, a) = N(,i(ri, a)). Equation (9) becomes:

dN(q) = 2 " N( za)a (11)

dl Il a2 _ 2

What remains is to relate N(rj,a) to what is measured in a scraper scan. The problem is

greatly simplified by the observation that N(il, a) depends only on the amplitude, a. This can be

seen as follows: Let n(q,a)- N(i,a)/NO, where No is the total number of beam particles.

n(q, a)dida is the joint probability of a beam particle with q between q and q + di and with a

between a and a + da. If g(a) is the probability distribution of a and F(q a) is the conditional

probability distribution of q for a given value of a, then

n(q, a)dida =[.F(il a)dri].[g(a)da] (12)

Since q = acos$, F(q a) depends on a and . They values of the particles in the beam, due

to filamentation, are uniformly distributed between 0 and 27G. Thus, q is uniformly distributed

between -a and a. Therefore, F(q a) is given by:

I

.F(q I a) a f a (13)

0 q > a

a Note: From equation (8): rj = -a cos 4 = - . This also follows from the application of Hamilton's equations to

equation (6).-3-
