Title Tuning algorithms for the ILC beam delivery system
Abstract Emittance preservation is an important aspect in the design and running of the International Linear Collider (ILC) with a direct consequence on the luminosity of the machine. The Beam Delivery System represents a major problem in this respect as it produces emittance dilution effects that are difficult to correct and that have a direct effect on the emittance as seen at the interaction point, and thus upon the luminosity of the machine. Tuning algorithms for this section of the machine rely on the correction of aberrations through the use of linear and higher order knobs, using correction magnets or movers distributed throughout the system. Alternative systems are also discussed. The design and implementation of these tuning algorithms, and their effectiveness in a variety of cases, are investigated.
