Title Beam halo studies for CTF3
Abstract Beam halo can have severe effects on the performance of high energy accelerators. It reduces the experimental throughput, may lead to noise in the experiments, or even damage accelerator components. In order to understand and ideally control the formation and evolution of beam halo, detailed studies are required. In this contribution halo generation mechanisms and the underlying physical principles are first presented, before the particular case of the CLIC Test Facility (CTF3) is discussed. The results from test measurements at UMER, based on an adaptive mask that is used to filter out the beam core, are presented.
