Title Emittance Measurements in Low Energy Storage Rings
Abstract The development of the next generation of ultra-low energy antiproton and ion facilities requires precise information about the beam emittance to guarantee optimum performance. In the Extra-Low ENergy Antiproton storage ring (ELENA) the transverse emittances will be measured by scraping. However, this diagnostic measurement facesseveral challenges: non-zero dispersion and systematic errors due to diffusion processes, such as intra-beam scattering, and the speed of the scraper with respect to the beam revolution frequency. In addition, the beam distribution will likely be non-Gaussian. Here, we present algorithms to efficiently address the emittance reconstruction in presence of the above effects, and present simulation results for the case of ELENA. We also discuss the feasibility of using alternative non-invasive techniques for profile and emittance measurements.
