Beam Halo in Proton Linac Beams


We review the present understanding of beam halo in proton linacs. Space-charge forces acting in mismatched beams have been identified as a major cause of beamhalo. We introduce a new description of the halo using the ratio of moments of the distribution of beam coordinates. We describe the beam-halo experiment that is in preparation at Los Alamos, which… (More)
