The S-DALINAC is a thrice recirculating electron accelerator for high resolution electron scattering experiments with a continuous-wave beam at a frequency of 2.9972(1) GHz. Short bunches are crucial to enable tuning of the machine for operation as an energy-recovery linear accelerator* **. Currently, measurements of this beam parameter are accomplished by using the radio-frequency zero-crossing method: here, a momentum spread chirp is induced and the transverse beam profile in a downstream located dispersive section is measured with a scintillating screen providing an upper limit of the bunch length. Since this method is time consuming, a new setup for these measurements using a streak camera is developed. Optical transition radiation from an aluminum-coated Kapton target is used to map the bunch length information to a light pulse which enables an accurate measurement compared to a scintillating screen. The light pulse can then be evaluated with the streak camera by projecting its length onto the transverse dimension on a phosphor screen. This contribution will present the current status of the measurement setup as well as its design and properties.

WEP005 Effect of Incoherent Depth of Field for Bean Halo Measurement with the Coronagraph in SuperKEKB simulation, radiation, synchrotron, synchrotron-radiation 335

  The incoherent depth-of-field due to the instantaneous opening angle of dipole SR will reduce the spatial coherence of SR in horizontal direction in the beam size measurement by using interferometry. This reduction of spatial coherence is due to both of apparent change of the beam profile due to field depth and intensity distribution in the aperture. In the case of beam profile measurement by imaging system, observed beam profile will deform and produce a beam tail in asymmetric manner by this effect. This apparent change of beam profile, especially extra beam tail in one side has certain influence for beam halo measurement using the coronagraph, because it has a large dynamic range of 6 order magnitude. Since the magnitude of asymmetric tail is proportional to bending radius, this effect is larger in large high energy physics machine which has a long bending radius. This effect is theoretically studied and compare with coronagraph measurement result of beam halo in the SuperKEKB. As a conclusion, this effect is very small and not observable in the coronagraph measurement at SuperKEKB.

  The newly constructed superconducting linear accelerator (SRILAC) is now in operation with the aim of discovering new superheavy elements and advancing the production of medical radiation isotopes. Because it is crucial to extend the durability of the expensive Cm target for as long as possible, these experiments require the accelerated V beam to be sufficiently widened. To this end, a helium gas light emission monitor (HeLM) has been introduced to measure the beam profile. Because He gas flows within the target chamber, by capturing the light emitted from He gas with a CCD camera, the beam profile can be obtained nondestructively and continuously. These measurements are handled through programming in LabVIEW, with analyzed data integrated into an EPICS control system. A method to estimate the beam envelope has been recently developed by leveraging the measured quadrupole moments with beam energy position monitors (BEPMs), and incorporating calculations of the transfer matrix. The synergistic use of HeLM and BEPM plays a useful role in accurately controlling the beam size at the Cm target.

WEP027 Status of Gas Sheet Monitor for Profile Measurements at FRIB photon, simulation, heavy-ion, vacuum 410

We report on the status of work on a non-invasive profile monitor under development for use at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), a heavy-ion LINAC which produces high-intensity, multi-charge state beams. The measurement will be made by collecting photons generated at the interaction point of the beam and a collimated molecular gas curtain. These photons will be collected with an intensified camera system, generating a two dimensional image and allowing for measurements of profile, beam halo, and other properties more prevalent at specific locations of interest, such as charge state spread after folding segment bends. Included will be ongoing design specifications, simulation results, and discussion of measurement techniques for acquiring signal from the device.
