Impact of final-focus ground motion on NLC luminosity

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Vertical displacements of final-focus quadrupoles due to ground motion can cause the two beams of the Next Linear Collider (NLC) to miss each other at the interaction point (IP) and, in addition, will increase the IP spot size, and thus degrade the luminosity, by generating dispersion and skew coupling. The sensitivity of the final-focus optics to plane ground waves is strongly wavelength dependent, which is formally expressed in terms of a lattice-response function. In this paper, the rms beam-beam separation and the rms IP spot-size increase are estimated for the NLC final focus, using the measured ground-motion power spectrum, a ... continued below

Description

Vertical displacements of final-focus quadrupoles due to ground motion can cause the two beams of the Next Linear Collider (NLC) to miss each other at the interaction point (IP) and, in addition, will increase the IP spot size, and thus degrade the luminosity, by generating dispersion and skew coupling. The sensitivity of the final-focus optics to plane ground waves is strongly wavelength dependent, which is formally expressed in terms of a lattice-response function. In this paper, the rms beam-beam separation and the rms IP spot-size increase are estimated for the NLC final focus, using the measured ground-motion power spectrum, a realistic orbit-feedback response curve, and the appropriate lattice-response function. The luminosity loss due to ground motion is shown to be insignificant.
