Preliminary results of RMS emittance measurements performed on the sub-picosecond accelerator using beam position monitors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Sub-picosecond Accelerator at Los Alamos National Laboratory is a 1300 MHz, 8 MeV photoinjector. Concerned mainly with the exploration of bunched electron beams, the Sub-picosecond Accelerator facility is also used for a variety of other research. One ongoing task is the exploitation of the second moment properties of beam position monitor signals to measure the rms emittance. The unique properties of photoinjector beams make Gaussian assumptions about their distribution inaccurate and traditional methods of measuring the rms emittance fail. Using beam position monitors to measure the emittance, however, requires no beam distribution assumptions. Presented here are the first emittance ... continued below
