Title Calibration of the EMMA Beam Position Monitors: Position, Charge and Accuracy
Abstract The accurate determination of transverse beam position is essential to understanding the performance of an accelerator system, and this is particularly the case with non-scaling FFAG machines such as EMMA, where, due to fundamental principles of design, the beam may deviate widely from the central beampipe axis. This paper describes the various modelling approaches taken for the three different button pickup assemblies used in EMMA, and the subsequent methods of calibration (‘mappings’) which allow beam position and charge to be deduced from the processed BPM signals. The use and validity of the modelling and mapping approach adopted is described, and the contributions to positional and bunch charge uncertainty arising from these procedures is discussed.
