2. Problem to be discussed (1)chromaticity • Nonscaling FFAG has finite chromaticity. • There is no synchrotron oscillations. • Phase advance depends on momentum and its difference will be accumulated. • From the figure above, average chromaticity is roughly 10. • Take two particles with momentum difference of 1%, phase difference (/2) after 10 turns becomes 1.

3. Problem to be discussed (2)what does that means? • As long as a beam is injected on-axis, the different phase advance is almost invisible. • Once a beam is injected off-axis, smearing in phase space should appear. • Phase difference of 2 after 10 turns means that a probe beam will be spread out completely in azimuthal direction. y’ y’ dp>0 on-axis off-axis dp=0 dp<0 y y

4. Simulation results (1)momentum spread • Use the following parameters • a=1/6, b=1/4 • Gaussian with a cut at 2 sigma • Acceleration with 10 turns Figure shows dp/p of a few % during acceleration. black: on-axis red: off-axis in vertical with 1  mm rad (normalized)

5. Simulation results (2)phase space evolution (z,pz) • A beam is initially displaced in vertical direction with 1  mm rad. • In 3 turns, a probe beam becomes a ring. • Chromaticity is large at low momentum.

6. Simulation results (3)configuration space evolution (s-longitudinal,z-vertical) • A beam is initially displaced in vertical direction with 1  mm rad. • Correlation among longitudinal position, (momentum,) and vertical position is manifest.

7. Simulation results (4)summary • A probe beam injected off-axis quickly smears out and becomes a ring with a radius of the off-set amplitude. • This is a process which can not be restored at extraction.

8. Impacts on EMMA design • With a limited aperture only for a probe beam emittance, diagnostic line after extraction just sees a fraction of a probe beam. • We should design diagnostic line either • for only on-axis beam with tomography measurement, or • for off-axis large beam as well but give up tomography if it is hard to install. • We may not have to scan the whole phase space at injection. As long as the amplitude ( m rad) of the off-set is the same, probe beams end up with the same ring in phase space. • However, with machine errors, it is in fact difficult to know the amplitude at injection. It is useful to have some flexibilities to scan phase space. • We also need to show that a probe beam becomes a ring in the fastest acceleration case.
