Title Test beam studies at SLAC end station A for international linear collider
Abstract The SLAC Linac can deliver to End Station A (ESA) a high-energy test beam with similar beam parameters as for the International Linear Collider (ILC) for bunch charge, bunch length and bunch energy spread.[1] ESA beam tests run parasitically with PEP-II with single damped bunches at 10Hz, beam energy of 28.5 GeV and bunch charge of (1.5-2.0)ยท1010 electrons. A 5-day commissioning run was performed in January 2006, followed by a 2-week run in April. We describe the beamline configuration and beam setup for these runs, and give an overview of the tests being carried out. [2] These tests include studies of collimator wakefields, prototype energy spectrometers, prototype beam position monitors (BPMs) for the ILC Linac, and characterization of beam-induced electro-magnetic interference (EMI) along the ESA beamline.
