D.Proch EuCARD kick-off, CERN,Dec.08 WP10 Objectives The main activities in the SC RF Technology WP concentrate on two different areas: – cavity improvements and beam experiments. – Improved methods for cavity treatment such as vertical electro-polishing or sputter coating will be investigated. – Prototype work on superconducting (SC) crab cavities will be launched with the goal to increase the luminosity of colliders such as LHC, CLIC or ILC.
D.Proch EuCARD kick-off, CERN,Dec.08 Objectives, cont. The second research activity concentrates on further developing Low Level RF techniques and on new diagnostic tools based on the analysis of Higher Order Modes (HOM). These advanced and challenging concepts and ideas will be tested in the FLASH linac, and they are important for the extreme beam stability requirements and control problems in future projects.

D.Proch EuCARD kick-off, CERN,Dec.08 LHC-CC Local vs Global Small crossing angle (~0.5 mrad): Global crab scheme is ideal choice for prototype Phase-I: – Test feasibility of crab crossing in hadron colliders, – Address all RF and beam dynamic issues, – Small orbit excursion and tune shifts, – Compatible with nominal and upgrade options to recover the geometric luminosity loss, – Collimation optimisation! – These cavities are feasible using available technology and the gradient requirements are within reach of current technology. Local crab crossing preferable (Phase-II): – Independent control at IPs, – Avoid collimation/impedance issues. Need compact cavities to fit in the IR region of the ring. Lower frequency hopefully!

Task 6: LLRF at FLASH The present LLRF control system at FLASH does not fulfill the long term (3-10 years) requirements in several areas: Field regulation, availability, maintenance and operability. The demand for high availability (HA), modularity, standardization and long time support favours the choice of the ATCA standards with carrier boards and AMC modules. The ATCA technology comes from telecommunication industry and therefore availability of commercial boards needed for instrumentation is presently very limited but growing. The LLRF control system for FLASH will be build using a modular approach basing on ATCA architecture. The boards developed for the LLRF system can be used for other accelerator instrumentation needs including the control system.
