3 Project Communication Official WEB site  Documentations  EDMS: Projects->ELENA Conferences  INDICO: Projects->ELENA Contact  8th of March 2012 IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury

4 ELENA – Motivation Further deceleration of p-bars coming from the AD to 100 keV  Very low energy for synchrotrons  Operation at 100 keV challenging due to very low magnetic fields (493 G in Bends) Electron cooling to reduction emittances – compensate the adiabatic blow-up due to deceleration Expected gain for experiments  About two orders of magnitude more intensity inside experiments with thick degraders  About one order of magnitude more intensity for ASACUSA  Several experiments operated in parallel Sketch of ELENA magnetic cycle  Expected duration around 10 s to 15 s IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 4 8th of March 2012

5 ELENA – Present Layout in AD Hall IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 5 8th of March 2012 New experimental area

7 ELENA – possible limitations, questions Lattice : will be finalized soon, Integration of element started. Stray fields (Measurement in AD Hall and comparison with those in LEIR foreseen in March)  Deflection due to ~0.5 G earth magnetic field at 100 keV (beam rigidity 457 Gm): > 1 mrad/m  Careful investigations on stray fields to be expected … good closed orbit control  Ratio between magnet gap and curvature radius not (that) small (about 0.1): correct modeling of magnet entrance/exit Instabilities  Possibly despite low intensity with small emittances (momentum spread) and energy Mechanisms cooling/provoking blow-up and beam loss  Cooling times and equilibrium parameters (with cooling and blow-up mechanisms) (Started)  IBS, scattering on gas molecules, heating by electron cooler (Started, conclusion next week) => equilibrium with cooling, blow-up after cooling until ejection Transfer lines  Electrostatic lines : cheap and magnetic shielding simpler (Decided at the meeting on the 25 th of January)  New layout for the present and new experimental areas (under study) H - (or p) source for commissioning (going forward with Julich)  Motivation: ELENA commissioning in parallel to AD run, H - with same mass and charge  Life-time (gas stripping) probably o.k., start commissioning at low energy IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 7 8th of March 2012

8 IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012 Contributions from outside Institutes

9 Status of the external Contributions Univ. Tokyo and MPQ-MPI: - 2 MCHF - 7 FTE (identified, electrostatic transfer lines and devices) Cockcroft Institute & Univ’s : - Costing of the order of 500 kGBP has been applied by U Liverpool, - A proposal has been submitted for work : this would cover 2 Postdocs, some PhD students and equipment; the overall funding requested is about 1 M€; a decision is expected until June. Denmark: - Applied for the money for dipoles and quadrupoles (Danfysik) and in addition it is foreseen to apply for a postdoc position for ELENA, if we can identify a good candidate before the August deadline. The decision not before October. IKP-FZ Julich: - Several aspects of the source have been discussed and should be clarified in further discussions (meeting on the 26 th of March). Substantial development work is required to make such a source operational for ELENA commissioning. This development and design work required is part of the contribution of Juelich to ELENA construction. Univ. Brescia: - 50 kEuros (will be transferred soon) Berkeley: - DOE does not agreed to support the engineering work needed for the contributions to ELENA (discussion not abandoned yet !) CEA-IRFU Saclay-SIGMAPHI: only prototypes are interesting for them ??? IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

10 New Building(Draft) IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March m2 AD hall extension needed for end 2013

11 Latest News  In the ELENA feasibility study the new extraction line and experimental area were considered as an option.  The Gbar experiment has been discussed at the SPSC in October 2011 and recommended for approval in January  In case of approval, room for this experiment (and new to come) should be created  A new building is proposed (and will be a multipurpose)  This was optional in the costing of ELENA in the feasibility study and need additional ressources (Presented at the 24th of February IEFC and then to the RB) IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

12 Possible Layout IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012 Sketch: O. Choisnet / JM. Lacroix Gbar ?

13 Solution : New building proposal IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March m2 AD hall extension Sketch: A. Kosmicki

14 Conclusions for the new building First proposal of the new building discussed in 2010 The site is identified The pre-project and cost estimates are ready No technical issues identified RP gave green light wrt operation of TT2 line and possible re-use of TT7 line with neutrinos P. Collier’s message about the last RB: The RB agrees that there is a good physics case but the DG stated that he could not approve GBAR until he had a chance to examine all requests that are coming in for new resources. He plans to take the matter up in the Enlarged directorate as soon as possible. In any case the approval (and therefore granting of the resources) will have to wait until after the next council meeting in March. In the meantime he recognized the urgency or the decision concerning the preparation the AD annex building. He has therefore given the go ahead for the MS to be prepared and sent out.

24 AD Target Consolidation The target zone is the source of the antiprotons for the AD/ELENA physics program!! The AD-target area is an old installation, not consolidated since 1987 Most control equipment were conceived as prototypes and therefore for most of them spares are not available Only few problems occurred during 12 years of AD operation  Area is well designed  Current repetition rate is ~100 s instead of designed 2.4 s Very reduced maintenance over the years – complete loss of expertise: Every issue could be a big problem! In order to ensure long-term AD operation a significant consolidation activity – to start in LS1 – is needed As agreed during the IEFC 4 th November, a thorough investigation activity is presently being carried out (2011/2012 winter shutdown)  Joined activity between EN/CV, EN/HE, R. Brown (EN/MEF), BE/OP, DGS/RP, coordinated by EN/STI IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

25 Documentation An effort is needed from several groups to re-establish a complete and up-to-date documentation of all components of AD-target area (missing up-to-now)  Heavy task, as most of the people which built the installation are not at CERN anymore  A safety file? EDMS node created under “Project”, “Accelerators” and already populated Modification of target position interlock for LS1 FLUKA simulations (systematics in pbar optimization, energy deposition, mechanical positioning sensitivity, etc) … Document describing the current status of the target area will be produced by June 2012 by all the concerned groups, coordinated by EN/STI IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

26 AD Target Consolidation The target area is very radioactive and presents several contamination risks:  Local maintenance and operation should be kept to a minimum  Due to the unknowns related to remote operation, presently these activities have to be locally performed (not really ALARA …) Medium to long-term solutions should enhance the remote handling and inspection capabilities:  Consolidation needed on target/horn chariot movement controls (for most degree of freedom we are presently “blind”)  Camera and microphones needed for remote control operation (ASAP) IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

27 Target Area Equipment The focussing horn is indispensable for AD physics run:  Only annual visual inspections is performed: no manpower to really revive a thorough follow-up  The present horn will NOT last for the next 20 years…  A renovated horn test bench (previously in b. 174) is part of the new AD proposed building (TE/ABT)  Spare horns available, but mechanical/electrical status is unknown In case of equipment (target/horn/magnets/quad) failures:  The old service vehicle is out of order: a complete replacement of all the hydraulic and the control electronic will be performed  Short-term solution  a new device is needed (200/350kCHF) to avoid that any unforeseen failure stops the AD physics for several weeks/months…  Target spares available IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

28 Surface Buildings and Tunnel Building 232 (AD-target support):  Partially used as radioactive storage area: a campaign has been launched to remove “hot” equipments  Will be used for non-radioactive storage of target area equipment (previously in b. 174) and for training on the spare chariots  General civil engineering consolidation needed! Building 195 (cooling station, horns, etc.):  Delicate installations (target cooling, horn powering…): it is proposed to install a controlled access system Building 196 (ventilation system):  Severe water intrusions (building made of blocks), water condensation during the winter period  water flowing in the target area with risks of water activation  General consolidation needed! TT6 tunnel (service equipments):  Severe water intrusions with the source not identified, humid and slippery environment with 3 H contamination…  Refurbishment and simplifications of service equipment needed for long-term operation (water drain tank, compressed air filters for horn/stripline cooling)  Future access system (under technical definition) should simplify access (avoid target area) IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

29 Target Consolidation during LS1: Target/horn mechanical systems extended maintenance (not possible during short shutdowns) Renovation and simplification of:  Target/horn control systems: to be carefully planned and discussed as will lead to significant cumulated dose to teams  C&V control systems Complete renovation of machine-related interlocks system Horn test bench and horns consolidation (?) Complete and detailed list to be defined by June 2012 IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

30 Target Consolidation after LS1 Simplification of the target/horn chariot system (new mechanical structure) Acquisition of a robot capable of performing most simple tasks of standard maintenance (inspection, cleaning of the horn…) Review the water cooling circuit of the target, collimator and the other elements of the target area (requested from RP)  Impossible in LS1 due to lack of resource s IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012

31 Target Area IEFC Workshop/ S. Maury 8th of March 2012 AD target area – February 2012 Focussing quadrupoles Target Horn Target chariot Horn chariot
