Wu, YK; Li, J; Popov, V; Mikhailov, SF; Wang, P, A tune measurement system for lowcurrent and energy ramping operation of a booster synchrotron, in Proceedings of 2007 Particle Accelerator Conference, Proceedings of the IEEE Particle Accelerator Conference (2007), pp. 4063-4065 [Gateway.cgi], [doi] .

    A betatron tune measurement system is one of the most important diagnostic tools for any circular accelerator. For the commissioning of a booster synchrotron newly developed for top-off injection into the Duke storage ring, a versatile tune measurement system employing a network analyzer, a short stripline kicker, a space filter and a photomultiplier tube has been developed to allow tune measurements over a wide range of beam energies from 0.24 to 1.2 GeV, and for low current measurements at a few micro-amperes. The signal from the highly sensitive optical detection system is also used for fast tune measurements with a realtime oscilloscope. This technique is being developed for live tune monitoring during booster energy ramping. ©2007 IEEE.
