  3. 3. Determination of Proton Beam Waist Positions Using Beam Position Monitors

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/European Spallation Source ESS AB; Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik

    Author : Gustav Gird Fahlström; [2022]
    Keywords : ESS; European Spallation Source; Proton beam; waist; BPM; Method; transverse; beam dynamics; beam physics; Lattice Error; Matrix formalism; Python; trajectory simulation; physics; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this work, we examine a novel method for the determination of proton beam waist locations using beam position monitors. Based on the lattice of the final transport line section of the European Spallation Source linac, a simplified version of the beam line composed of quadrupole magnets and correctors is constructed in Python using a matrix formalism.
