However, with the large mid-linac energy spread introduced
for BNS damping  and the new 'split-tune' quadrupole
settings, some increased chromatic emittance dilution within
the linac is expected (-10%). Efforts are underway to develop a
split-tune linac lattice with less chromatic dilution.
In light of previous successes , further efforts to
stabilize linac trajectories have centered around modifications
of quadrupole magnet support structures. Measurements of
quadrupole magnet vibrations using a geophone indicate
-300 nm rms vibrations for frequencies above 1 Hz .
