 Producing multi-coloured bunches through beam-induced ionization injection in plasma wakefield accelerator / Vafaei-Najafabadi, N (Stony Brook U.) ; Amorim, L D (Stony Brook U.) ; Adli, E (Oslo U.) ; An, W (UCLA) ; Clarke, C I (SLAC) ; Clayton, C E (UCLA) ; Corde, S (Palaiseau, Lab. Opt. Appl.) ; Gessner, S (CERN) ; Green, S Z (SLAC) ; Hogan, M J (SLAC) et al. This paper discusses the properties of electron beams formed in plasma wakefield accelerators through ionization injection. In particular, the potential for generating a beam composed of co-located multi-colour beamlets is demonstrated in the case where the ionization is initiated by the evolving charge field of the drive beam itself.

 Dynamic Response of Advanced Materials Impacted by Particle Beams: The MultiMat Experiment / Pasquali, M (CERN) ; Bertarelli, A (CERN) ; Accettura, C (CERN ; Milan Polytechnic) ; Berthome, E (CERN) ; Bianchi, L (CERN) ; Bolz, P (Darmstadt, GSI) ; Carra, F (CERN) ; Fichera, C (BIAM, St Paul lez Durance) ; Frankl, M I (CERN) ; Furness, T (Huddersfield U.) et al. The introduction at CERN of new extremely energetic particle accelerators, such as the high-luminosity large hadron collider (HL-LHC) or the proposed future circular collider (FCC), will increase the energy stored in the circulating particle beams by almost a factor of two (from 360 to 680 MJ) and of more than 20 (up to 8500 MJ), respectively. In this scenario, it is paramount to assess the dynamic thermomechanical response of materials presently used, or being developed for future use, in beam intercepting devices (such as collimators, targets, dumps, absorbers, spoilers, windows, etc.) exposed to potentially destructive events caused by the impact of energetic particle beams.

 Commissioning of a beam screen test bench experiment with a future circular hadron collider type synchrotron radiation beam / Gonzalez, L A (CERN ; Frascati) ; Gil-Costa, M (Madrid, CIEMAT ; CERN) ; Baglin, V (CERN) ; Chiggiato, P (CERN) ; Garion, C (CERN) ; Kersevan, R (CERN) ; Casalbuoni, S (KIT, Karlsruhe) ; Huttel, E (KIT, Karlsruhe) ; Bellafont, I (CELLS - ALBA, LLS) ; Perez, F (CELLS - ALBA, LLS) Coping with synchrotron radiation (SR) that originated at superconducting bending magnets is one of the major challenges in the design of the vacuum beam pipes of hadron colliders. In the case of the Future Circular hadron Collider (FCC-hh), similarly as for the LHC, a beam screen, operating at higher temperatures than the cold mass, has been designed in order to preserve the superconducting magnet cold bores from direct synchrotron irradiation.

 Activation experiment at the CERN-EU high-energy Reference Field (CERF) facility to benchmark ActiWiz and FLUKA predictions: A comparison after 30 days of cooling time / Duchemin, Charlotte (CERN) ; Theis, Chris (CERN) ; Vincke, Helmut (CERN) An experiment was carried out in June 2018 at CERN in order to benchmark FLUKA and ActiWiz activation calculations with experimental data. A first set of samples made of Copper, Aluminium, Stainless Steel and Kovar with a well-known elemental composition was irradiated by the direct impact of a mixed hadron beam of the CERF facility with a momentum 120 GeV/c.

 Multiobjective genetic algorithm approach to optimize beam matching and beam transport in high-intensity hadron linacs / Yarmohammadi Satri, M (CERN ; IPM, Tehran) ; Lombardi, A M (CERN) ; Zimmermann, F (CERN) In this article we demonstrate how a multiobjective genetic algorithm, like the nondominated sorting genetic algorithm II (NSGAII), and a selection tool, like the technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS), can be employed for beam matching and for optimizing the beam transport in the low and medium energy section of a modern hadron linac including space charge effect. Combining NSGAII with the particle tracking code TRAVEL v4.07, we determine the Pareto optimal front, and then apply TOPSIS for the final selection using the example of the 160 MeV H$^−$ LINAC4 at CERN.

 Channeling and volume reflection of high-energy charged particles in short bent crystals. Crystal assisted collimation of the accelerator beam halo / Scandale, W (CERN) ; Taratin, A M (Dubna, JINR) The experimental studies of high-energy charged particle deflection due to planar and axial channeling as well as volume reflection and multi volume reflections in short bent crystals at the extracted beams of the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) are considered. The experiments on the studies of crystal assisted collimation of the CERN SPS beam halo and the first similar experiment with the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) beam of 6500 GeV/c protons are also considered.. 2019 - 107 p. - Published in : Phys.
