Transverse beam echoes can be excited with a single dipole kick followed by a single quadrupole kick. They have been used to measure diffusion in hadron beams and have other diagnostic capabilities. Here we develop theories of the transverse echo nonlinear in both the dipole and quadrupole kick strengths. The theories predict the maximum echo amplitudes and the optimum strength parameters. We find that the echo amplitude increases with smaller beam emittance and the asymptotic echo amplitude… 

Echo in a Single Molecule

Echo is a ubiquitous phenomenon found in many physical systems, ranging from spins in magnetic fields to particle beams in hadron accelerators. It is typically observed in inhomogeneously broadened

Echoes in unidirectionally rotating molecules

Abstract We report the experimental observation of molecular unidirectional rotation (UDR) echoes, and analyze their origin and behavior both classically and quantum mechanically. The molecules are

Echo in a single vibrationally excited molecule

Echoes occur in many physical systems, typically in inhomogeneously broadened ensembles of nonlinear objects. They are often used to eliminate the effects of dephasing caused by interactions with the

Fields and characteristic impedances of dipole and quadrupole cylindrical stripline kickers

We present semi-analytical methods for calculating the electromagnetic field in dipole and quadrupole stripline kickers with curved plates of infinitesimal thickness. Two different methods are used

Impulsively Excited Gravitational Quantum States: Echoes and Time-Resolved Spectroscopy.

The wave-packet echo effect is a promising candidate method for precision studies of GQSs of ultracold neutrons, atoms, and antiatoms confined in closed gravitational traps.

Echo-enhanced molecular orientation at high temperatures

Ultrashort laser pulses are widely used for transient field-free molecular orientation – a phenomenon important in chemical reaction dynamics, ultrafast molecular imaging, high harmonics generation,

Echoes in a Single Quantum Kerr-nonlinear Oscillator a

We theoretically study the echo phenomenon in a single impulsively excited ("kicked") Kerr-nonlinear oscillator. These echoes may be useful for studying decoherence processes in a number of systems

Investigation of beam echo generation with electrons in the IOTA ring

This project investigates the possibility of echo generation with electrons in the IOTA ring. Through simulations the effects of different beam and ring parameters on echo amplitude and full width half



Measurement of Transverse Echoes in RHIC

Beam echoes are a very sensitive method to measure diffusion, and longitudinal echo measurements were performed in a number of machines. In RHIC, for the first time, a transverse beam echo was

Beam echoes in the CERN SPS

Longitudinal echo signals have been produced in the CERN SPS by exciting a proton beam at 120 GeV/c with two short RF pulses separated by a suitable time-delay. The aim of the experiments was to

Direct measurement of diffusion rates in high energy synchrotrons using longitudinal beam echoes.

We have made a direct determination of the diffusion rates in a stored, coasting antiproton beam by observing the decay rates associated with beam echoes in the longitudinal plane. The beam echoes,

Observation of plasma wave echoes

Experimental observation of a new nonlinear plasma phenomenon, the plasma wave echo, is reported. A recent theory predicts that if a longitudinal electron plasma wave is excited at one position in a

Phase mixing and echoes in a pure electron plasma

The two-dimensional (2D) fluid echo is a spontaneous appearance of a diocotron wave after two externally excited waves have damped away, explicitly demonstrating the reversible nature of spatial

Diffusion measurement from observed transverse beam echoes

For this research, we study the measurement of transverse diffusion through beam echoes. We revisit earlier observations of echoes in RHIC and apply an updated theoretical model to these

Beam-beam effects at the Fermilab Tevatron: Theory

The Tevatron in Run II is operating with three trains of 12 bunches each. Long-range beam-beam interactions have been significant sources of beam loss and lifetime limitations of antiprotons. The

Orientation and alignment echoes.

The mechanism of the echo formation by the kick-induced filamentation of phase space is elucidated, and the first experimental demonstration of classical alignment echoes in a thermal gas of CO_{2} molecules excited by a pair of femtosecond laser pulses is provided.


It is shown that if a longitudinal wave is excited in a collision-free plasma and Landaudamps away, and a second wave is excited and also damps away, then a third wave (i.e., the echo) will
