Title Precise Instruments for Bunch Charge Measurement
Abstract For the pulse charge q injected into a capacitor of a parallel resonating circuit, the oscillation voltage V on a series resistor R is V=qwRexp(–wt/2Q)sin(wt–1/2Q), t>?, where w is the resonance frequency, Q>>1 is the quality factor and ?<<1/w is the pulse length. Of the two main parameters, R is known, and w can be found directly from the signal above. The quality factor contribution is low, and its rough estimation is sufficient to retain voltage accuracy. The observations above open a possibility of precise bunch charge measurement. We describe a bunch charge monitor that is a cavity with a lump capacitor as a low impedance coaxial line connected to a gap in the vacuum pipe. An LC electronic circuit is also presented. It integrates the single bunch current delivered by a Faraday Cup, or a Wall Current Monitor, or a Fast Current Transformer. The circuit has w~30MHz, Q~20, and with a Faraday Cup, the lower range is 10pC/V and the noise floor is about 20fC. Several such circuits are in use on the VELA injector in Daresbury Laboratory.
