Title Position monitoring 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. It is based on a 50 Hz proton synchrotron which, once the commissioning of a new dual harmonic RF system is complete, will accelerate about 3.5E13 protons per pulse from 70 to 800 MeV, corresponding to mean beam powers of ~ 0.2 MW. Transverse space charge is a key issue for both present and proposed upgrades to the machine, and is the focus of current R&D studies. Experiments on the ISIS ring are central to this work, therefore understanding and quantifying limitations in diagnostics is essential. This paper presents work studying and modelling the ISIS synchrotron beam position monitors.
