Abstract [en]

We propose a method to measure the time-resolved momentum distribution and beam size at the end of the decelerator in the drive beam complex of the Compact Linear Collider, CLIC. Conventional diagnostic methods are hampered by the very high beam power and large energy spread of the drive beam after up to 90% of its kinetic energy is converted into microwave power. Our method is based on sweeping the beam in a circular pattern to determine the momentum distribution and recording the beam size on a screen using optical transition radiation. We present an algorithm to extract the time-resolved momentum distribution. Furthermore, qualitative information about the beam size along the pulse train can be extracted from the image left on a screen by sweeping the beam linearly. We present simulation results that allow us to estimate the applicability.

Abstract [en]

Following the discovery of the Higgs-like boson at the Large Hadron Collider, there is demand for precision measurements on recent findings. The Compact Linear Collider, CLIC, is a candidate for a future linear electron-positron collider for such precision measurements. In CLIC, the beams will be brought to collisions in the multi-TeV regime through high gradient acceleration with high frequency RF power. A high intensity electron beam, the so-called drive beam, will serve as the power source for the main beam, as the drive beam is decelerated in special structures, from which power is extracted and transfered to the main beam. When the drive beam is decelerated the beam quality deteriorates and the momentum spread increases, which makes the beam transport challenging. Dedicated diagnostics to monitor the momentum profile along each bunch train and transverse profile diagnostics will be needed to guarantee the reliability of the decelerator and consequently the power source of the main beam acceleration.

A test facility, CTF3, has been constructed at CERN to validate key technical aspects of the CLIC concept. The beam quality in the decelerator will be investigated in the test beam line, TBL, where several power extraction structures reduce the drive beam energy by up to 55%. At the same time, the single-bunch rms energy spread grows from the initial value of 1% to almost 6%. To monitor the parameters of such a beam is challenging but crucial for the optimization of the beamline. In this thesis we report on progress made on adapting generally used methods for beam profile measurements to the demanding conditions of a wide momentum profile. Two detector technologies are used for measuring transverse profile and momentum profile and we discuss the performance of these instruments, in the view of the large momentum spread and with the outlook towards equivalent beam profile monitors in the CLIC decelerator.
