The Ps 80 Mhz Cavities

As part of the preparation of the PS as injector for LHC, two new 80 MHz cavities have been designed and built at CERN. Bunches spaced by 25 ns and less than 4 ns long are required at injection into the SPS. The bunch spacing is obtained with a 40 MHz system installed in the PS in 1996, but the nominal small bunch length will only be obtained with the 80… CONTINUE READING
