  • measuring LHC beam emittances

  • transfer line to LHC matching

  • minimizing emittance blow up during injection, ramp, and squeeze

  • longitudinal emittance

Transverse target emittance

transverse target emittance


LHC transverse emittance target: from SPS: ge=3.5 mmLHC at top energy: ge=3.75 mm→ total emittance growth allowed=7%possible sources of emittance growth:optical mismatch, dispersion mismatch, injection oscillations, p.c. decay & snapback, ramp, squeeze, beam-beam effects, wake fields, instabilities, damper noise, rf noise, damper noise, intrabeam scattering, residual-gas scattering, electron cloud,…

require individual contributions < 2% (smaller than typical measurement resolution)


can we relax the LHC emittance tolerances during commissioning?

No, LHC emittance targets cannot be relaxed, LHCCWG no.39 (M. Giovannozzi)

but smaller emittances are available from the SPS!!


SPS emittance - dependence on #bunches & bunch intensity









data from G. Arduini, LHC MAC 20, Dec. 2006


proposed strategy:

blow up every beam to the design emittance of 3.5 micron in the SPS with “pink noise” injection into the transverse damper before extracting to the LHC

if the additional LHC emittance increase is found to be too large, we can then reduce the TFB-noise blow up in the SPS until LHC target emittances are obtained

beam intensity limits from screen damage (at 450 GeV)1.5x1014 protons x turns for Ti screens

1.5x1013 protons x turns for Al2O3 screens

EDMS 821083


wire scanners

(B. Dehning)

beam intensity limits 450 GeV : 25 % of nominal limit for wire damage,                  quench level limit much higher 7 TeV: limited by both quench and damage of wire                 5 % of nominal for quench                 7 % of nominal for wire damage

emittance increase due to single wire scan:

SPS at 26 GeV: ~0.05 mm (14%)

SPS at 450 GeV: negligible (a few 1e-5)

(F. Roncarolo and B. Dehning, CERN-AB-2005-042 )


synchrotron light monitor

available at all beam intensities

switch from 5-T undulator radiation to D3

radiation at ~2 TeV

full beam turn by turn

fast camera for bunch-by-bunch measurements

averaged over 20 ms

(bunch-by-bunch turn-by-turn with

intensifier, probably not in year 1)

light optics slightly out of focus at injection

set up for optimized performance at 7 TeV

beam-size resolution < 10% at all conditions


expected SR image at 7 TeV: 5 pixels/s vertical , 8 pixels/s horizontal

→ emittance resolution from discretization <1% (Steve Hutchins)


ionization profile monitor

requires pressure bump for proton pilot bunch

if nominal vacuum, not in year 1

could we not perhaps inject an inert gas to improve

signal while protecting the adjacent NEG chambers

(as for LHCb)?

main application for ion beams, s~Z2


beam size from scraping

Tevatron example


X.L. Zhang,

V. Shiltsev,

F. Zimmermann

lost fraction of beam f vs.collimator position; fit gives the beam size at collimator and hence the emittance

we here assumed a Gaussian distribution

alternatively we can reconstruct the shape

Lhc collimator calibration

LHC “collimator calibration”





 Get beam offset from measured jaw positions




half gap 

R. Assmann, LHCCWG no 5, May 2006

Local beta functions at collimators

Local beta functions at collimators

More difficult for skew collimators!

Measure gap  beta beat

Measure gap, emittance & normalized edge  absolute beta

This feature is the result of:

Having two opposite jaws: not possible for TEVATRON or RHIC!

Direct measurement of gap with calibration during production!

Schottky monitor


transverse emittance

measurement with 1.7 GHz

Schottky monitor at Tevatron; comparison with wire scans; at LHC 4.8 GHz Schottky pick-ups

available in “BI Phase-II”

  • beam size → emittance?

  • 3 nearby monitors → b, a, e

  • 5 nearby monitors w.intermediate bends→ b, a, e, D, D’

  • 6 nearby monitors w.interm. bends→ b, a, e, D, D’, drms

  • [+ and x-y b ratio > 2 for coupling information;

  • e.g. fit 15 independent covariance matrix elements]

  • example: OTR screens in TLs and injection region

  • however, most monitors are single devices; then

  • - high-accuracyb function measurement (~1%)

  • at the profile monitors; 3 BPMs / monitor w/o quad

  • two nearby quadrupoles equipped with K modulation

  • “quadrupole” scan, i.e. measure beam sizes for

  • different quadrupole settings

  • beware: dynamic b beat tolerance ~8% for collimation

Transfer line to lhc matching

transfer line to LHC matching


  • emittance growth

  • - from injection oscillation

  • w. transverse damper

  • - from dispersion mismatch

  • from betatron mismatch

  • from geometric TL tilt & coupling


→ |Dx|<0.2 s

(equal to required trajectory stability)


→ |Dx|<1.5 s

(for DQtot~5x10-4, ndamp~50)


→ |DD|<20 cm

& |DD’|<4 mrad

(for Dp/prms~5x10-4)


→ Db/b<22%



transfer line matching – procedure

use techniques from TT2/TT10, and TI2&TI8 commissioning

suggested steps (G. Arduini):

(1) dispersion matchingby changing the energy from SPS

(2) optical parameters & emittances in transfer line (screens);

screen measurements with single bunch (to avoid

interference from bunch-to-bunch offsets)

(3) if optics problem found, check orbit response(4) use LHC matching monitor(s)as final verification

(5) monitorblow-up TL-ring & mismatch during running

note: LHC optics must be known (and stable) ;

in TI2/8 commissioning no need to correct (one exception)


distribution and number of monitors in each transfer line




J. Wenninger, EDMS 328136

3 emittance numbers along the line;

4-5% accuracy of beam-size measurement

→ expected emittance precision ~10%, relative precision ~5%

J. Uythoven LTC, 5.12.07

TI2 corrector response measurements


(B. Goddard et al, PAC’05)

we have ~5% right here, leaving ~2-3% for other effects


possible sources of injection errors

  • errors & changes can arise in SPS, LHC, or transfer line;

  • examples:

  • magnetic stray field at extraction

  • kicker ripple

  • transfer line optics errors (energy error,

    • misalignments, magnet calibration, )

  • optics errors in the LHC

  • tune changes in the SPS or LHC

  • b* changes in IP2 or 8 at injection

  • changes of crossing angle / separation bump

  • configuration & spectrometer polarity changes

(H. Burkhardt, Chamonix XIV)


A. Koschik et al, EPAC’06

  • LHC aperture at injection is tight

  • transfer line optics strongly constrained by phase advance relations between transfer line collimator

  • 20% change in bcan change phase advance between TCDIs by 15o & reduce protected aperture by 10% (H. Burkhardt, Chamonix XIV)

  • dispersion matching on “cm” level using orbit bumps in the LHC not practical (A. Koschik et al, EPAC’06)


Matching monitor

Expected resolution De/e ~1%!! EDMS 328146

One fast camera is available, which has to be positioned at the chosen matching screen. The camera is radiation sensitive and needs to be taken out of the tunnel after the measurements.

From year 2, also SLM (& IPM) with fast camera & intensifier might detect mismatch

(B. Dehning)


matching monitor test @ SPS

turn-by-turn beam size measured & and expected from the optics parameters (dispersion and Twiss) observed in TT2-TT10



expected beam size computed assuming:

  • r.m.s momentum spread: dp/p=0.94 10-3 (→ measured in PS )

  • r.m.s. normalized emittance (H&V) < 3mm (→ fitted from the first 3 turns measurements)

fast decay!?

Minimizing emittance blow up during injection ramp and squeeze

minimizing emittance blow up during injection, ramp, and squeeze


example emittance growth from Tevatron

emittance growth of 12

antiproton bunches in

first 10 minutes of store:

5-20% increase due to


asymmetry so-called

“scallops effect”;

after 0.5-1 h the blow up


V. Shiltsev, EPAC’04

Minimizing emittance blow up

minimizing emittance blow up

detecting such blow up needs cross-calibration of monitors (wire scanner – SR from undulator, wire scanner – SR from dipole, SR – collimator scans, SPS-LHC, etc.)

tools for minimizing emittance growth:

- transverse damper (on or off)

  • stabilization of orbit, tunes, coupling, chromaticity by feedbacks (tune kicker 1.6-0.4 s, excites ~1/12th of the ring → emittance growth 2% for 1-20 kicks)

  • standardized magnet cycles

  • optics studies & corrections, changes to tunes chromaticity etc.


Tevatron “calibration” example

we tried to resolve factor >2 discrepancy between

flying wires & SL monitor by scraping

Longitudinal emittance

longitudinal emittance

Longitudinal requirements

longitudinal requirements

at injection emittance must be small, <1 eVs, to fit within 400-MHz RF bucket

at 7 TeV it should be increased to 2.5 eVs to reduce IBS effect, t~e/N, t||,nom~60 h

emittance should grow like energy1/2 to avoid decrease in beam stability

increase is accomplished by applying band-limited RF noise; procedure tested in SPS

data from G. Arduini, LHC MAC 20, Dec. 2006


longitudinal emittance diagnostics

  • wall-current monitor, 2.3 GHz

  • Schottky monitor

  • SL longitudinal-density monitor

    (year 2?)

Records on longitudinal density monitor

records on longitudinal density monitor

“The high sensitivity longitudinal profile monitor should provide as well the nominal bunch core parameters (bunch length and energy spread, density distribution and possibly longitudinal oscillations of the core). This information will be used for cross calibration of other devices like electro-magnetic detectors (faster but less accurate).”

“This instruments profits from the Transv. Profile Monitor Light Source with the aim of using synchrotron light to measure bunch profiles with a dynamic range of 105, enabling measurements and monitoring of bunch lengths, …. An alternative system is to use an array of fast Single Photon detectors (SPD) … A decision for the best system for LHC will be made in 2004.”

C. Fischer, EDMS 328145 (2003)

LHC Design Report, vol. 1, 13.5 (2004)

“The LDM collaboration with  Politecnico di Milan and Harriot-Watt

should be pursued with the second highest priority.”

Schottky monitor

momentum spread measurement with 1.7 GHz Schottky monitor at Tevatron; comparison with RW wide band pick up; at LHC 4.8 GHz Schottky pick-ups

A.Jansson, HHH-ABI Chamonix’07



  • nominalemittance targetsaretight, but growth tolerances can be relaxed for the commissioning by injecting beams withsmaller initial emittance from SPSif needed

  • many diagnostics toolsare available for cross checks and cross-calibration

  • based on experience so fartransfer lines should be stablewith residual unavoidable blow up < 5%; however,expected changes in b, D, & orbitmust be accommodated

  • correction may not be easy– neither in LHC nor in the transfer line

  • main uncertainty aresize & stability of optics errorsin the LHC (dynamic beta beat, spurious dispersion, local coupling,…)

  • for commissioning beams,longitudinal emittance budget looks tighterthan the transverse one
