A Fast and Accurate Phasing Algorithm for the Rf Accelerating Voltages of the Slac Linac

The RF phases, defined as the phases between the crests of the RF accelerating voltages and the accelerated beam, must be controlled within a few degrees in the linac of the SLAC Linear Collider (SLC). Changes in the RF phases not only affect the available acceleration but more importantly modify the dynamics of the accelerated beam, e.g. the beam optics… (More)
