Title Investigations into the beam life time in low energy storage rings
Abstract In low energy storage rings, beam life time critically depends on the residual gas pressure, scattering effects caused by in-ring experiments and the available machine acceptance. A comprehensive simulation study into these effects has been realized with a focus on the long term beam dynamics in a small antiproton recycler ring with an internal target, the cooling process of a beam of CF+ ions at 93 keV/u in the TSR storage ring at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany as well as intra-beam scattering and target effects in the ultra-low energy storage ring (USR) at the future Facility for Low energy Antiproton and Ion Research (FLAIR). This was done by using the computer code BETACOOL in combination with the OPERA-3D and MAD-X programs. In this contribution, the results from these studies are presented and compared to available experimental data. Based on these simulations, criteria for stable ring operation are then presented.
