Title Experimental Damping System with a Ferrite Loaded Kicker for the ISIS Proton Synchrotron
Abstract The ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, located in the UK, consists of a H− linear accelerator, a rapid cycling proton synchrotron and extraction lines connecting two target stations. Transverse beam instabilities are one the major factors limiting the intensity of the proton beam. In order to mitigate these instabilities, an experimental damping system is being developed for the ISIS synchrotron. This system uses a split electrode BPM as a pickup and a ferrite loaded kicker as a damper. This kicker is ordinarily used to excite the beam with a fast rise time pulse for tune measurements. This paper describes the utilization of this device within a fast feedback system, using the continuous waveform provided by a split electrode BPM which is processed by an FPGA board.
