RHIC/AGS Polarimeter Study Fixed target polarization for two intensities (1.4 and 1.6*10 11 ) with 12 bunches in both rings with two polarimeters. AGS measurements were done with similar intensity. Polarization profile measurements were done with both rings and both planes with 56 bunches. AGS horizontal and vertical profiles were taken the same time. Sweep and fixed target measurements were done with 56 bunches for comparison. Note: Keith tuned emittance down for AGS before the study, we did not see much change on AGS IPM or CNI target scan, but the polarization profiles measured in AGS is flatter than before. Huang, Zelenski+team
Polarization Profiles of RHIC and AGS Ring Horizontal P 0 sigma Vertical P 0 sigma AGS Blue Blue Yellow The profiles are consistent between AGS and RHIC with the statistics. The actually is P / I. These numbers from last year at 100GeV are averaged 2.5, this year is about 3(average of many fills). Given the large error bars, I can’t say there is profiles developed in RHIC ramp.
PS beam noise - summary Four ramps were executed with different configurations of the electrostatic shield and a capacitor across the grounding resistors. Schultheiss, Minty
Ramp 1 Results
Conclusions Floating the Electrostatic Shields in the Dipole Ramp PM reduced the noise during the ramp. Yellow showed more reduction than Blue. The Capacitor had a less dramatic reduction in the noise. The present configuration is with the shields floating and no capacitor.
Plan for the experiment Use pattern BBLR_34x34 (28x non-colliding bunches), 2e 11 /bunch, accelerate and collide, will not ramp up the RF voltage CNI emittance measurement => emittances measured around 35 (Blue) and 22 (Yellow) mm.mrad : BBQ was left one during the ramp 5A, position scan in Blue and Yellow, orbit and BTF measurements Retract, CNI emittance measurement => around 50 (Blue) and 22 (Yellow) mm.mrad 50A, position scan in Blue and Yellow, orbit and BTF measurements Retract, CNI emittance measurement Time permitting, change chromaticity, repeat one scan Fischer Robert-Demolaize Calaga
Conclusion Plan executed: distance scans with both 5A and 50A scans in both beams, including head-on beam-beam. Suffered from larger than usual emittance (about 30 mm.mrad); BBQ should be off next time. Additional beam time to study in details the behavior of non-colliding bunches + chromaticity changes ?
