3 Synchrotron: guiding field Synchrotron ring:  particle trajectories at fixed radius   to keep  constant B should increase as p increases during acceleration,  RF frequency synchronized to the particle revolution  bending and focusing fields Dipole : the Lorenz force provides the centripetal acceleration magnetic rigidity bending angle f L f x º º p s L º ByBy X0X0 f pp Quadrupole : the Lorenz force focuses the trajectories  bending radius B v L F

4 Weak focusing Weak focusing of the transverse particle motion:  to get vertical stability, the bending field should decrease with , as in cyclotrons,  to get horizontal stability the the decrease of B with  should be moderate, so that, for  >  0, the Lorenz force exceeds the centripetal force.

8 Hill equation solution : Floquet theorem phase advance between s 0 and s Unperturbed equation of motion periodicity condition  -function (periodic) phase advance variation envelop equation   and  depend on the lattice arrangement   and  0 depend on the initial conditions of the trajectory envelop cos-like orbit sin-like orbit several orbits Here ß is NOT the relative speed v/c

9 Courant-Snyder parameters Courant & Snyder invariant and more Courant-Snyder invariant z z’ Slope=-         emittance   is the particle emittance   is the area of the ellipse mapped turn by turn in the phase plane (z,z’)   beam is the (1·rms) beam emittance if the area  beam encloses 39 % of the circulating particles N z z’ Poincaré section s S0S0 C   beam /N is a constant of the motion (Liouville theorem) u The Liouville theorem holds in absence of acceleration, losses, scattering effects and radiation emission Liouville theorem

10 Adiabatic invariant normalized emittance The Courant-Snyder invariant emittance ε decreases if we the accelerate the particle. This is called “adiabatic damping” (a pure cinematic effect, since there is no damping process involved). The slope of the trajectory is z’ = p z /p s. Accelerate the particle: p s increases to p s +∆p s, but p z doesn’t change => slope changes. p psps pzpz z’ p+  p ps+psps+ps pzpz z’+  z’ Invariant of the motion  In a stationary Poincaré section ->   In an accelerating Poincaré section ->   = the relative speed  = the relativistic factor  -> Courant Snyder parameter

17 Phase space with only linear fields Distortion due to sextupoles Distortion due to octupoles Dynamic aperture Nonlinear fields imply multiple traversal of resonances  Emittance distortion and growth  Tune shift and spread with the amplitude  Coupling of the degrees of freedom  Chaotic motion  Particle loss -> dynamic aperture

18 since L*>>  * Low ß insertion  A low-ß insertion is used to focalize the beams at the collision point  This is achieved with triplets or doublets of quadrupoles  In the drift space where the experimental devices sit ß growth with the square of the length The chromaticity induced by the triplet can be large (local correction scheme may be needed)

19 Acceleration mechanism

20 Longitudinal stability Momentum compaction Slip factor  measures how closely packed orbits with different momenta are  measures how how much off- momentum particles slip in time relative to on-momentum ones Phase stability principle  <  tr  B is late respect to A  B will receive a larger voltage and will increase its speed  B will be closer to A one turn later  >  tr  B is late respect to A  B will receive a smaller voltage and will see a shorter circumferential path  one turn later B will be closer to A small oscillations

21 LHC luminosity

22 Lecture II - single particle dynamics reminder  In a circular accelerator the guiding fields provide the required forces to keep the particles in a closed orbit along the magnet axis  Strong focusing allows building much smaller magnets and is a fundamental progress respect to weak focusing  The particle trajectory is a pseudo-harmonic function modulated both in amplitude and phase rather well approximated by a sinusoidal function oscillating at the betatron frequency (tunerevolution frequency) with an amplitude proportional to the square root of the emittance  The imperfections of the guiding field and of the momentum particles produce resonances and eventually chaotic motion  The low ß insertions are basic devices to focus the beam size at the collision point of a collider ring  The phase stability principle guarantees the stability of the longitudinal motion
