Title Studies of beam loss control on the ISIS synchrotron
Abstract The ISIS Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK produces intense neutron and muon beams for condensed matter research. The ISIS 800 MeV Proton Synchrotron presently provides up to 2.5x1013 protons per pulse at 50 Hz, corresponding to a mean power of 160 kW. A dual harmonic RF system upgrade is expected to increase the power by about 50%. The tighter constraints expected for higher intensity running are motivating a detailed study of beam loss distributions and the main factors affecting their control. Main aims are maximizing the localization of activation in the collector straight, and minimising risk of damage to machine components. The experimental work, developments of the loss measurements systems, and simulation studies are summarised.
