Landau Damping of the Weak Head-Tail Instability at Tevatron

Two-step improvement of transverse beam stability has been done at the Tevatron. First, shielding of the laminated Lambertson magnets significantly reduced the transverse impedance. Second, Landau damping induced by the octupoles allowed machine operation with zero chromaticity at injection. That has resulted in a dynamic aperture increase and weakening of… CONTINUE READING
