Title Beam dump and collimation design studies for NLS : thermal and structural behaviour
Abstract The proposed UK New Light Source project will need beam dump to absorb a bunch charge of 200 pC with the repetition rates starting from 1 kHz initially up to 1 MHz in the upgrade. We are exploring an option of a solid dump with a graphite core to absorb the beam power up to 450 kW for the upgrade option as this is the most challenging design. Since the beam dump design will also affect the building layout, the choice of its design should be made at an early stage. Based on the feasibility studies of a solid dump, a decision not to go for more complex water dump can be taken. The post linac collimation section should protect the undulators from irradiation due to beam halo particles. This paper shows results and conclusions from simulations of the impact of the NLS beam on different solid beam dump solutions and the effect of the beam halo on the collimators.
