Energy measurement and correction for stable operation in J-PARC

Moriya, Katsuhiro; Harada, Hiroyuki; Liu, Y.*; Otani, Masashi*

In Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), the beam accelerated up to 400 MeV in the Linac is injected to 3 GeV rapid cycling synchrotron (RCS), and we realize the high intensity beam by using multi-turn injection. During user operation, we rarely detected the beam loss at the high dispersion area in the RCS or the beam collimator section in the extraction beam transport line. These incidents indicate that the beam loss is caused by the momentum shift of RCS injection beam according to the experimental and simulation results. In the beam commissioning, we check the Linac beam momentum just before the user operation of the RCS. However, we could not previously measure the Linac beam momentum during the user operation because we adopt the multi-turn injection and the injected beam momentum was changed by the synchrotron oscillation in longitudinal plane. Therefore, we measured the beam momentum at the beam injection line of the RCS. Because the Linac-to-3-GeV-RCS Beam Transport line (L3BT) has the high dispersion areas, we estimated the injection beam momentum from the beam orbit data by the Beam Position Monitors (BPMs). We measured the beam position data and estimated the momentum shift by using the data and beam simulation. As a result, we found the momentum fluctuation during the user operation and the fluctuation width was up to 0.1%. To suppress the beam loss induced by the momentum fluctuation, we developed the momentum correction system. The fluctuation was suppressed less than $$pm$$0.02% with this system. Finally, the beam loss incidents induced by the beam momentum shift no longer occur, and we successfully achieved the more stable user operation in J-PARC.
