Internal review on PS2 lattice and RF options

AT Auditorium (CERN)

AT Auditorium


Lyn Evans (CERN)
The scope of the PS2 review is to discuss the main parameters of the machine and the options identified for the lattice and the main RF system and their inter-dependence. A classical FODO lattice will be compared to negative momentum compaction lattices that avoid transition crossing. For the RF, two options will be presented, an approach similar to the system presently used in the PS machine and a solution based on a higher frequency tuneable system. Attendance by invitation only. Organizers: Michael Benedikt /AB-OP, Lyn Evans /LHC
