Beam-based Alignment of CLIC Accelerating Structures Utilizing Their Octupole Component
2016 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Alignment of the accelerating structures is essential foremittance preservation in long linear accelerators such as the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC). The prototype structures for CLIC have four radial waveguides connected to each cellfor damping wakefields and this four-fold symmetry is re-sponsible for an octupole component of the radio-frequency fields, phase-shifted 90 degrees with respect to the accelerating mode. The octupole field causes a nonlinear dependence of the transverse beam deflection with respect to the position within the accelerating structure. By transversely moving the beam with two upstream steering magnets, and observing the deflection with beam position monitors or screens, the electromagnetic center of the structure can be found. Wediscuss the applicability of this method for aligning the beamin the accelerating structures.
