Enhanced Bunch Monitoring by Interferometric Electro-Optic Methods / Gibson, Stephen (Royal Holloway, U. of London ; JAI, UK) ; Arteche, Alberto (Royal Holloway, U. of London) ; Bashforth, Sophie (JAI, UK) ; Bosco, Alessio (Royal Holloway, U. of London ; JAI, UK) ; Krupa, Michal (CERN) ; Lefèvre, Thibaut (CERN)
A prototype Electro-Optic Beam Position Monitor has been installed for tests* in the CERN SPS to develop the concept for high-bandwidth (6-12GHz) monitoring of crabbed-bunch rotation and intra-bunch instabilities at the High Luminosity LHC**. The technique relies on the ultrafast response of birefringent MgO:LiNO3 crystals to optically measure the intra-bunch transverse displacement of a passing relativistic bunch. [...]

Identification and Removal of SPS Aperture Limitations / Kain, Verena (CERN) ; Alemany-Fernández, Reyes (CERN) ; Bartosik, Hannes (CERN) ; Cettour Cave, Stephane (CERN) ; Cornelis, Karel (CERN) ; Cruikshank, Paul (CERN) ; Ferreira Somoza, Jose (CERN) ; Goddard, Brennan (CERN) ; Pasquino, Chiara (CERN)
The CERN SPS (Super Proton Synchrotron) serves as LHC injector and provides beam for the North Area fixed target experiments. Since the 2016 run automated local aperture scans have been performed with the main focus on the vertical plane where limitations typically arise due to the flat vacuum chambers in most SPS elements.

Upgrade of the CERN SPS Beam Position Measurement System / Wendt, Manfred (CERN) ; Barros Marin, Manoel (CERN) ; Boccardi, Andrea (CERN) ; Bogey, Thierry (CERN) ; Degl'Innocenti, Irene (CERN) ; Kain, Verena (CERN) ; Moran Guizan, Carla (CERN) ; Topaloudis, Athanasios (CERN)
The CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) is a fast cycling hadron accelerator delivering protons with momenta of up to 450 GeV/c for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), fixed target experiments and other users such as the AWAKE plasma acceleration experiment, and also used to accelerate heavy ions. This paper presents the upgrade initiative for the SPS beam position measurement system in the frame of the CERN LHC Injector Upgrade (LIU) project. [...]

The Extra Low ENergy Antiproton ring (ELENA) at CERN entered the commissioning phase in November 2016 using H⁻ ions and antiprotons to setup the machine at the different energy plateaus. The low intensities and energy of the ELENA beam generate very weak signals making beam diagnostics very challenging. [...]

The Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment (AWAKE) is a project at CERN aiming to accelerate an electron bunch in a plasma wakefield driven by a proton bunch. The plasma is induced in a 10 m long rubidium vapor cell using a pulsed Ti:Sapphire laser, with the wakefield formed by a proton bunch from the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS). [...]
