Analysis and Measurements of Emittance Dilution from Vacuum Windows in the Fermilab Recycler Transfer Lines*

Abstract

Round-trip beam transfers between the Fermilab Main Injector and Recycler (antiproton accumulator) have been plagued by an emittance dilution of about a factor of 2 with corresponding beam loss. The source of the large dilution was traced to two Ti vacuum windows, one installed in each of the two transfer lines that connect the machines for beam injection… (More)
