- High intensity in the CERN SPS for nominal LHC operation, and foreseen LHC upgrade
- Need for a good knowledge of the machine beam impedance and its main contributors
- To obtain the total machine impedance, one can:
- Measure the quadrupolar oscillation frequency shift (longitudinal) or the tune shift (transverse) with the SPS beam
- obtain the impedance of each equipment separately and sum their contributions:
- Analytical calculation (Burov/Lebedev, Zotter/Metral or Tsutsui formulae) for simple geometries
- Simulations for more complicated geometries
- RF Measurements on the equipment
available impedance and wake data compiled in the impedance database ZBASE

In this talk, we focus on the simulations and RF measurements of the SPS BPMs

- Obtain the wake field and impedance of the SPS BPH and BPV
Notes:

- Impedance of these SPS BPMs is expected to be small, but ~200 BPMs are installed in the machine. Summed effect?
- 2 mm gaps seen by the beam are small would affect only high frequencies? Is that really correct?

Broader objectives for the “impedance team”:

1) Which code should we trust to obtain the wake?

2) Assess the reliability of bench measurements with wire

A few remarks…

Need for long wakes to obtain a sufficient frequency resolution

Particle Studio FFT seems to introduce more ripple

The gaps are small, but the electrode are so thin that the cavities behind the electrodes perturb the beam down to low frequencies (~1GHz)

SPS BPH

SPS BPV

- Not ideal to measure the impedance with a wire (small signal expected, radioactive device, tampering with the device would mean reconditioning before being able to put it back in the machine).
- Idea: first, try to measure S-parameters from the available N-ports at the BPM electrodes, to benchmark the simulations and the measurements

S11

S22

Not much difference between S11 and S22

- Measurement and simulations are shifted in frequency
- Frequency shift seems to increase with frequency

This benchmark with measurements without wire indicate that the model is not completely wrong. But do they give information on impedance peaks, by any chance?

Let’s compare with the BPH time domain simulation!

Apparently yes!!!

Observed S21 peaks are the longitudinal impedance frequency peaks

Useful for more than just the benchmark!

Similar conclusions as for the BPH

Again, agreement between time domainand frequency domain is not so good as with the BPH

Measurement with wire behaves like the measurement without wire

Measurement without wire behaves like both simulations

- Outlook
- Open questions

- Reasonable agreement between time domain, frequency domain, eigenmode, and bench RF measurements.
- The agreement seems better for the BPH than for the BPV
- Powering the electrode without the wire gives information on the impedance related resonances.
- From simulations, putting a wire in the BPV affects moderately the impedance spectrum.
- Not discussed here: Time Domain Simulations of both BPH and BPV indicate that the ouput signals (corrected by the time delay) at both electrodes are not equal when the bunch is centered. This could explain difficulties to calibrate these specific BPMs.
- Future plans:
- Check dipolar, quadrupolar, coupled and higher order terms of the wake, and ways to obtain these terms in frequency domain.
- Use the same approach to simulate the SPS kickers (much larger impedance contribution is expected)
- Explore more in detail the effect of finite resistivity.
- Effect of these wakes on the SPS beam

- Negative impedance for both BPV and BPH. Convention?
- Linux version of CST?
- How to decouple dipolar and quadrupolar terms in frequency domain for structures with no symmetry?
- Are there limitations to calculating the transverse wake from the longitudinal?
- Open boundary condition for low energy beams? (important for the PS Booster and the PS)
- FFT in particle studio?
- Which windowing should we use?
