An Analog Method for Measuring the Longitudinal Coupling Impedance of a Relativistic Particle Beam With Its Environmnet

Description: The stability of a coasting beam against self-bunching (negative mass instability) may be expressed in terms of a beam coupling impedance. The impedance has contributions from self-fields, wall impedance, and curvature effects. This paper describes procedures for measuring the wall and curvature contributions to the coupling impedance by means of an analog in which the beam is replaced by a conductor propagating a TEM-like mode. Conditions are derived under which the measurements are valid, various measurement procedures are described and results of the application of the method to the compressor of an electron ring accelerator are reported.

Hanford radiochemical site decommissioning demonstration program

Description: A program is proposed for the innovation, development, and demonstration of technologies necessary to decommission the Hanford radiochemical plant area to the extent that the sites can have unrestricted public access. The five tasks selected for development and demonstration of restoration techniques were restoration of a burial ground, decommissioning of a separations plant, restoration of a separations plant waste interim storage tank farm, restoration of a liquid disposal area, and disposal of large contaminated equipment. Process development requirements are tabulated and discussed. A proposed schedule and estimated costs are given. (JSR)

Study of Secondary Particles Produced by 200 and 500 GeV Protons in Emulsion Chambers

Description: The objectives are: (1) Comparison between the beam energy and the primary energy as determined by properties of secondary particles, in order to check the method currently used in cosmic ray experiments; (2) The distribution of energy given to {gamma}-rays and the distribution of elasticity of collisions; and (3) Search for short-lived particles as found by the author in an emulsion chamber exposed to cosmic rays.

The Use of rf-Knockout for Determination of the Characteristics of the Transverse Coherent Instability of an Intense Beam

Description: The response of an intense beam of interacting particles to a deflecting rf-signal is computed theoretically and shown to be closely related to transverse coherent beam stability. It is shown that the beam response to sinusoidal excitation provides a direct measure of the stability of beam modes for given machine conditions (beam intensity, octupole current, sextupole current, momentum spread, etc.). This measurement includes the properties of the beam surroundings as well as the frequency spread effective for Landau damping. Since it is generally difficult to evaluate theoretically the wall and beam properties that enter into stability calculations, the information which can be obtained from rf excitation experiments should be very valuable; especially in devising practical procedures for reducing the severity of coherent transverse instabilities.

Plowshare sequential device test

Description: For over a year we have been advocating the development of a hardened or ruggedized version of Diamond which will be suitable for sequential detonation of multiple explosives in one emplacement hole. A Plowshare-sponsored device development test, named `Yacht` is proposed for execution in Area 15 at the Nevada Test Site [NTS] in late September 1972. The test is designed to evaluate the ability of a ruggedized Diamond-type explosive assembly to withstand the effects of an adjacent nuclear detonation in the same emplacement hole and then be sequentially fired. The objectives and experimental plan for this concept is provided.
