The Fermilab Tevatron is equipped with two independent Schottky monitors for measurement of betatron tunes, one operating at 21.4 MHz and the other at 1.7 GHz. A new front-end and related data acquisition for the 21.4 MHz resonator has been installed and commissioned during the FY04 Collider RunII. Sophisticated fitting strategies are required to analyze the spectra. Optimization of this fitting package allows us to report tune and chromaticity measurements at almost 1 Hz.

    ABSTRACT: Early in Run2, there was an effort to compare the different emittance measurements in the Tevatron (flying wires and synchtotron light) and understand the origin of the observed differences. To measure the beta function at a few key locations near the instruments, air-core quadrupoles were installed. By modulating the gradient of these magnets and measuring the effect on the tune, the lattice parameters can be extracted. Initially, the results seem to disagree with with other methods. At the time, the lattice was strongly coupled due to a skew component in the main dipoles, caused by sagging of the cryostat. After a large fraction of the superconducting magnets were shimmed to remove a strong skew quadrupole component, the results now agree with the theoretical values to within 20%.

    ABSTRACT: Spectrum of excited electron beam position was analyzed to determine tune value and quality factor in Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility(SSRF). Vertical impedance and transverse damping rate of SSRF storage ring were educed. In light of these results, sources of beam instability are discussed and characteristics of the motion of excited single bunch are presented. Frequency response function of RLC circuit was used to fit peaks in the spectrum of beam position signal. Based on the fitting results, quality factor, which represents damping state of the motion, dispersion of frequency, and degree of instability, was acquired. Experiment results show that, the correlation of fitted data and original data can be up to 98%, and the profile of fitted figure is quite similar to original one, which means the fitting performance is better than Gaussian fitting. Data of several beam currents were analyzed. Tune value and quality factor will decrease accordingly if beam current increases, thus the beam instability is stronger. While the current increases beyond a certain threshold, a split appears in the peak of spectrum which indicates beam quality decreases.
