In a previous article (Papaphilippou&Laskar 1996), we used the frequency map analysis for studying the dynamics of the axisymmetric softened version of the logarithmic potential. The method is now applied to its 3-dimensional generalisation in order to deepen our knowledge regarding the dynamics of triaxial power-law galactic models. The principal dynamical(More)
The CLIC Damping rings are designed to produce unprecedentedly low-emittances of 500 nm and 5 nm normalised at 2.86 GeV, with high bunch charge, necessary for the performance of the collider. The large beam brightness triggers a number of beam dynamics and technical challenges. Ring parameters such as energy, circumference, lattice, momentum compaction,(More)
Recently, the Hamiltonian Control Theory was used in [Boreux et al., 2012] to increase the dynamic aperture of a ring particle accelerator having a localized thin sextupole magnet. In this paper, these results are extended by proving that a simplified version of the obtained general control term leads to significant improvements of the dynamic aperture of(More)
The CLIC damping ring requires wigglers with both high on-axis fields and short periods. The present design foresees a superconductive wiggler with a period length of 5 cm, a peak on-axis field of 2.5 T and a full aperture of 12 mm. In this paper we explore the performance improvements of the damping ring when these parameters are pushed to 2.7 T at a(More)
Experimental frequency maps have already revealed unknown characteristics of the ESRF storage ring non-linear dynamics. In the past year, several efforts were undertaken in order to establish this technique as an operational online tool. The acquisition time was significantly reduced by collecting data from a dedicated fast BPM system. The problem of beam(More)
Space-charge effects have been identified as the most serious intensity limitation in the CERN PS and PS Booster, on the way towards ultimate LHC performance and beyond. We here explore the application of several previously proposed space-charge compensation methods to the two LHC pre-injector rings, and the challenges which need to be overcome. The methods(More)
The motion of beams in particle accelerators is dominated by a plethora of non-linear effects, which can enhance chaotic motion and limit their performance. The application of advanced non-linear dynamics methods for detecting and correcting these effects and thereby increasing the region of beam stability plays an essential role during the accelerator(More)
The CLIC polarized positron source is based on a positron production scheme in which polarized photons are produced by a Compton process. In one option, Compton backscattering takes place in a so-called “Compton ring”, where an electron beam of 1 GeV interacts with circularly-polarized photons in an optical resonator. The resulting circularly-polarized(More)
