Title The effect of space-charge on the tomographic measurement of transverse phase-space in the EMMA injection line
Contributors
Abstract Phase-space tomography for particle beams depends upon detailed knowledge of the particle transport through specified sections of a beam line. In the simplest case, only the effects of magnets (such as quadrupoles) and drift spaces need to be taken into account; however, in certain parameter regimes (high charge density and low energy) space charge forces may play a significant role. The ALICE accelerator is the electron source for EMMA, a prototype ns-FFAG machine. Results are presented of investigations into these effects on phase-space tomography in the injection line between ALICE and EMMA. The application of suitable correction techniques* to the EMMA injection line tomography measurements in the presence of space-charge is also discussed.
