  1. A Cost-Effective High-Configurable Iris Diaphragm Beam Halo Detector

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 09b

    Over the past few years several beam halo detection techniques have been invented to minimize the beam interception rate and accuracy of measurements. However, instrumentation for these measurements are complex systems and are not modular. The systems tend to be specialized for a single facility, or even a single part of a beamline. Also, these systems can hardly be reused or moved to another loca ...

  4. Nanostructured GaAs Photocathodes for Light Trapping and Ion Damage Tolerance

    SBC: Euclid Beamlabs, LLC            Topic: 30d

    Photocathodes provide laser-triggered pulses with high peak currents. High average currents require high QE to avoid laser-heating damage. However, QE in DC guns decays with extracted charge due to back-bombardment from gas ionized by the emitted electron beam. Thus higher current increases back-bombardment and shortens life proportionally to extracted charge. This proposal addresses the charge-li ...

  5. Cold Spray Technology Applications for SRF Cavity Thermal and Mechanical Stabilization

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 30a

    The most important source of frequency shifts in SRF cavities is due to the effect of microphonics and Lorentz forces. Additional stiffening is then needed to improve the cavity’s mechanical stability and reduce the frequency shift. Gas dynamic cold spray is a coating method based on supersonic jet of powders, heavily plastically deformed during the impact. The use of Nb/Cu cold spray cladding m ...

  9. Inexpensive, Minimally Invasive Fluorescent Imaging of the X-Ray Beam with Simultaneous Flux Measurement

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 13a

    X-ray beamlines at user facilities dynamically change their beam parameters – flux, size, shape and x-ray energy – to meet user needs, often through the use of dynamic focusing elements such as toroidal mirrors. In such cases, the beam optimization procedure is often time consuming and complex, requiring several iterations before the desired beam parameters are obtained. There is a need for be ...

  10. Superconducting MgB2 Tubes for Passive Magnetic Field Shielding for Electron Ion Collider

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 30g

    Design of proposed future Electron-Ion Colliders (EIC) calls for an interaction region comprised of high field quadrupole for the heavier proton beams and an almost field free path for the electron beams. Magnets in the interaction regions have great challenges due to tight space and beam-beam interactions. A passive magnetic shield would reduce the spatial requirements around the electron beam pi ...
