        FCC Conductor Development in Japan

        A high Jc Nb3Sn conductor development program has been launched jointly by CERN, KEK, Tohoku and Tokai Universities. The scope of the program is to develop, produce in representative lengths and characterize Nb3Sn wire with enhanced characteristics. The final goal is to achieve, in representative unit lengths of material, the following development targets on the basis of magnets performance, for the Nb3Sn conductor:
        A non-copper critical current density at 4.2 K and 16 T (Jc(4.2 K, 16 T)) of at least 1500 A/mm2;
        A wire diameter of not more than 1 mm;
        A fraction of stabilizer to superconductor in the wire of at least 1;
        An equivalent diameter of the superconducting Nb3Sn filaments of less than 50 m;
        A low electrical resistivity of the copper stabilizer of the wire, i.e. a Residual Resistivity Ratio (RRR) of the copper after wire reaction of above 150.
        First R&D conductor has been ordered to a Japanese company and the second order will be placed in April 2017. The performaces of those conductor will be reported in the presentation.

        Arc design and lattice integration

        The FCC-hh (Future Hadron-Hadron Circular Collider) is one of the three options considered for the next generation accelerator in high-energy physics as recommended by the European Strategy Group. The layout of FCC-hh has been optimized to a more compact design following recommendations from civil engineering aspects. The updates on the first order and second order optics of the ring will be shown for collisions at the required centre-of-mass energy of 100 TeV. Special emphasis is put on the dispersion suppressors and general beam cleaning sections as well as first considerations of injection and extraction sections.

        Injections and extraction insertions and dump lines

        Safely extracting and absorbing the 50 TeV proton beams of the FCC-hh collider will be a major challenge. In the new baseline concept one straight section of 2.8 km length is dedicated to the beam dumping system. The beam dumping system will fast-extract the beam and transport it to an external absorber. The high stored beam energy of about 8.5 GJ per beam means that machine protection considerations will severely constrain the functional design and specifications of the straight section and the beam dump line geometry.
        The overall system concept is presented and evaluated regarding overall system length, energy deposition on absorbers, hardware requirements, radiation issues and layout flexibility. It is proposed to use of a highly segmented extraction kicker system allowing a single kicker switch to fail, this will significantly reduce the probability of an asynchronous beam dump. In order to sufficiently separate swept single bunches on the extraction absorbers in case of an asynchronous beam dump a fast field rise of the extraction kicker is required. Superconducting septa are foreseen to limit the overall system length and power consumption. Detailed studies to ease the challenging dilution kicker system were performed and will be presented.

        RF system design for the CEPC main ring

        CEPC is a 100 km double-ring circular electron positron collider operating at 90-240 GeV center-of-mass energy of Z-pole, WW pair production threshold and Higgs resonance. CEPC and its successor SPPC, a 100 TeV center-of-mass super proton-proton collider, will ensure the elementary particle physics a vibrant field for decades to come. To reduce the overall cost, partial double ring scheme was proposed as the alternative, which has a significant impact on the cavity operation and beam dynamics. The conceptual design report (CDR) of CEPC will be completed in the end of 2017 as an important step to move the project forward. In this talk, CEPC SRF system design and the progress of key technology R&D will be shown, including SRF staging scenarios in terms of RF power, key parameter choices and system configuration at different operation energies of both Main Ring and Booster, bunch train beam loading and phase shift compensation, coupled bunch instabilities and HOM coupler design, as well as high Q cavity, variable input coupler, tuner and cryomodule concepts.

        Cavity design approaches and HOM damping for FCC-ee

        In the design study of the FCC-ee an RF cavity system is required to provide the necessary accelerating voltage for the four operating modes of the FCC-ee, i.e. Z, W, H and tt-bar. Based on the preliminary studies, a single design that can serve all four setups is not feasible. The H and tt-bar systems are two demanding cases that are characterized by high accelerating voltage of up to 10 GV. This paper will focus on the cavity design for the Higgs modes of operation. Higher order mode (HOM) couplers are included to assess the damping efficiency and the optimum placement on the cavity endgroup.

        Development of APC (ZrO2) Nb3Sn multifilamentary and ternary conductor for FCC applications

        In this work we pursue the development of high-Jc multifilamentary (Nb,Ti)3Sn wire containing ZrO2 APCs. Previously, 61-filament powder-in-tube (PIT) APC Nb3Sn binary conductors were demonstrated. These conductors showed very high pinning strength and high layer Jcs at 12 and 15 T (a layer Jc double the best RRP wires). However, the wires had low A15 layer conversion fractions, because the designs were not optimized. Additionally, they were binary, and thus not optimized for the highest fields. Here, new 61 subelement binary designs were made to achieve higher Sn/Nb ratios, leading to conductors with larger A15 conversion factors; these results are discussed. Next, we performed some initial work in order to develop a ternary wire. In this experiment, an externally oxidized tube-type wire was manufactured, starting from a precursor of Cu-Sn-Ti rod in a Nb-1%Zr tube. Samples were heat-treated in a vacuum sealed quartz tube with CuO present. Heat treatment schedules included 20°C/h up to 650°C for 300h, and 20°C/h up to 700°C for 100h. Grain refinement (about 35nm) was observed due to the internal oxidation process, and Ti was observed within A15 layer, demonstrating a simple ternary APC route. Subsequently, a modified restack was manufactured with internal oxide and Ti sources. Heat treatment times and schedules were optimized for oxygen diffusion and phase formation. Refined grain sizes and Ti inclusion are also detailed for this ternary option. The SEM, magnetic, and transport results are presented for these conductors.

        Higgs physics at FCC-ee

        After the Higgs boson discovery, the precision measurements and searches for new phenomena in the Higgs sector are among the most important goals in particle physics. Experiments at the Future Circular Colliders (FCC) are ideal to study these questions. Electron-positron collisions up to an energy of 350 GeV provide the ultimate precision with studies of Higgs boson couplings, mass, total width and CP parameters, as well as searches for exotic and invisible decays. The feasibility of observation of the s-channel production is reviewed. We conclude by giving an outline of the contributions to the FCC CDR.

        Top physics at FCC-ee

        In the framework of the FCC project, the FCC-ee collider program contains a specific run at the center of mass energy around 350 GeV with an integrated luminosity corresponding to the production of about 1 Million top quark pairs. The ultimate goal is to obtain the most precise measurement of the top mass with a threshold scan from 340 to 350 GeV. However, the top physics program at the FCC-ee is extremely rich and comprises, among other measurements, the study of the achievable precision at or below the per-cent level on top couplings to Z and gamma with a specific scan just above the top-pair threshold (√s ~ 365-370 GeV), the indirect measurement of the top-Yukawa coupling, top width, processes with FCNC and rare top decays. It can be shown that the precision obtained at this machine is able to probe new physics scales up to several TeV and to fully characterize a large variety of Composite Higgs models. This result in a perfect complementarity with direct measurements obtained in the top sector and elsewhere with the FCC-hh 100 TeV machine later on.

        Ion considerations

        The hadron collider studied in the future circular collider (FCC) project could operate with protons and lead nuclei in similar modes to the LHC. Considering the current baseline assumptions for the proton-proton program, this paper updates and extends previous studies investigating the potential performance in lead-lead and proton-lead collisions. Beam parameter and luminosity evolution, as well as estimates for the integrated luminosity are given. The secondary beams produced by bound-free pair production in heavy-ion collisions would carry several kW of power and it is therefore crucial to include countermeasures in the initial accelerator design. Preliminary studies of this key aspect of heavy-ion operation are presented.

        Potential performance of N doping and Nb3Sn

        Plans for FCC call for 11 GV of RF voltage for ee-tt, corresponding to ~2600 SRF cells. In this contribution, we examine recent developments in state-of-the-art SRF technology that can reduce the cost burden of this significant infrastructure. Topics of discussion include new nitrogen infusion processing for bulk niobium, progress in Nb3Sn coatings, and preparation techniques that promote flux expulsion. For each, we estimate the impact on the cost of the SRF infrastructure as well as the technical challenges with their implementation.

        Alternative materials and coating techniques for cavities

        The high critical temperature (~18K for Nb3Sn) and very low Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) surface resistance of A15 intermetallics makes them a promising category of materials alternative to niobium to be used in Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) cavities. Despite these benefits, the excessive brittleness of this group of materials means that they cannot be used as the bulk material in cavity manufacturing. They could thus be encouraging candidates for superconductor coated copper cavity technology. This thin film based approach could offer desired characteristics together with significant cost reduction compared to the standard niobium cavities, by replacing expensive superconducting substrates with copper ones and improving cryogenic efficiency by increasing the operational temperature of the cavity to 4.2K.
        In this study, magnetron sputtering was used to synthesise Nb3Sn thin films onto a copper substrate, designed to closely mimic a cavity coating. Investigations into the deposition and annealing response of films manufactured using different coating pressures and sputtering gases have been performed using a broad range of techniques. These include X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) analysis, Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), Focused Ion Beam (FIB) cross-sectional milling and Superconducting QUantum Interference Device (SQUID) magnetometer testing. A maximum critical temperature of 16.5K has been obtained up to now by refining the process parameters. The challenges inherent to the use of copper as a substrate and proposals to tackle them down will be exposed.

        Copper electropolishing studies for the FCC-ee SC-RF cavities

        Previous experiments have demonstrated a better performance obtained for thin film Nb/Cu RF cavities on electropolished copper substrates compared to chemically polished ones. In the context of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) study, CERN is designing a new copper electropolishing facility capable of processing elliptical cavities from 1.3 GHz to 400 MHz (single cell); this facility is to be commissioned in early 2018. The aim is to provide state of the art surface finishing on copper bulk radio frequency structures, namely on the 400 MHz single cell FCC type cavities and thus contributing in achieving the ultimate performance on the Nb/Cu technology. In this contribution, it’ll be shown the planning, cost evaluation, design status as well as ongoing modelling and simulation work to define the optimum working tools (cathode geometry) and parameters (potential, current and polishing bath flow). The modelling and simulation work is being presently benchmarked with 1.3 GHz cavities.

        R&D on Nb3Sn at Fermilab

        Fermilab is collaborating with industry and other labs and universities on superconducting (SC) wire and cable R&D, with the goal of improving key properties and providing conductor specifications and data for design and construction of SC accelerator magnets for a future very high energy pp collider. SC wire R&D focused first on optimizing the geometrical and chemical layout of Restacked-Rod Process conductor by Bruker OST. Then, efforts were intensified on research to improve Nb3Sn inherent flux pinning by producing artificial pinning centers in the Nb3Sn phase, which refines grain size to 30 nm. In parallel, FNAL is collaborating with a number of companies to develop Nb3Sn wires with increased specific heat to improve conductor stability and reduce sensitivity to external perturbations. Rutherford cable development includes heat treatment studies to boost performance of existing cables, and innovative design ideas for larger cables, which are preferred for 16 T magnets with appropriate operational margin. This presentation will give an overview of the various SC R&D activities at Fermilab and their associated results.

        FCC-ee requirements and specific designs

        To match the high statistical precision of the FCC-ee event samples, general purpose detectors that can measure and identify with high precision all the fundamental fermions and bosons of the standard model, and thereby access all known physics processes, are called for.
        The talk will first briefy summarize the main requirements for a FCC-ee detector: (i) precise momentum measurement of charged particles; (ii) precise energy measurement of neutral particles and of jets; (iii) precise lifetime measurement of final state particles for tagging of final states containing c- or b-quarks or tau-leptons; (iv) very precise definition of the fiducial region. Then, an outline a specific detector concept being developed for the FCC-ee will be presented. Technologies being investigated include:
        (i) a low-mass pixel vertex detector for tagging of particles with finite lifetimes;
        (ii) a cluster-timing low-mass drift chamber for robust pattern recognition and specific ionization measurement; (iii) high precision dual-readout calorimetry for both em and hadronic particles. A 2 T axial magnetic field will be provided by a solenoid positioned either around or inside the calorimetry.

        An example of synergy in BSM physics: right-handed neutrinos

        Right-handed or, equivalently, sterile neutrinos are among the most attractive extensions of the SM to generate the light neutrino masses observed in neutrino oscillation experiments.
        When the right-handed neutrinos are subject to a ""lepton number""-like symmetry they can have masses around the electroweak scale and potentially large Yukawa couplings, which makes them testable at the planned Future Circular Colliders (FCC).
        In this talk I present an overview of the searches for right-handed neutrinos at the FCC in its electron-positron, proton-proton, or electron-proton configuration.
        I provide a systematic assessment of the different search channels, give the state of the art sensitivities for the most promising signatures and discuss the synergy and complementarity of the different FCC configurations.

        LHC as 3.3 TeV HEB

        The transfer and injection of the high brightness 3.3 TeV proton beams from the High Energy Booster (HEB) to the FCC presents several interesting challenges. In the new baseline concept one straight section of 1.4 km length is dedicated to house one injection system and a side-experiment. Due to the limited amount of space, a special injection and collision optics were designed and optimized to provide a minimal beta* to the experiment, respecting the requirements of the injection system. The high stored beam energy during beam transfer will influence the machine protection considerations concerning the functional design of the transfer and injection, for instance in the amount of bunches transferred, the kicker rise and fall times and the protection of the experimental detector located downstream of the injection point.

        scSPS as 1.3 TeV HEB

        A new SPS with significantly higher extraction energy than the present 450 GeV is of interest for several CERN projects presently under study. Firstly, for the Future Circular Collider for hadrons (FCC-hh) the tunnels of SPS, LHC and the 100 km collider will be available to house a High Energy Booster (HEB). Replacing the SPS by a superconducting single aperture, low complexity accelerator (scSPS), accelerating the beams up to 1.3 TeV, would have several advantages compared to the other HEB designs. Secondly, for an eventual High-Energy-LHC (HE-LHC) in the LHC tunnel, a higher injection energy could be mandatory for field quality, aperture and impedance reasons. And finally, for future Fixed Target programmes, the possibility of slow extracted beams at energies above 1 TeV could open new physics and detector test beam possibilities. This talk presents the conceptual design considerations for a superconducting single aperture accelerator (designated scSPS) in the SPS tunnel which can be used to accelerate protons to an extraction energy of 1.3 TeV for FCC and for interleaved fixed target beam operation in CERN’s North Area. The
        cell design, magnet parameters, overall layout, design of the different insertion and performance estimates for specific applications will be presented and discussed in detail.

        3.3 TeV beam injection into combined experimental and injection FCC machine insertions

        The layout of the FCC-hh has recently been modified due to civil engineering requirements. Whereas in the previous baseline layout the low luminosity experiments were situated in dedicated straight sections, the new version combines injection and experiment in the same insertion keeping the straight section length constant. We present first optics designs for these insertions together with the challenges arising from combining these two systems. Energy deposition studies with this new layout allow to set first goals in term of both instantaneous and integrated luminosity for the low luminosity experiments in the FCC-hh.

        Adaption of the LHC cold mass cooling system to the requirements of the Future Circular Collider (FCC)

        The cooling of the superconducting magnet cold masses with superfluid helium (HeII) is a well-established concept successfully in operation since years in the LHC. Consequently, its application for the cooling of FCC magnets is an obvious option. The 12-kW heat loads distributed over 10-km long sectors not only require an adaption of the magnet bayonet heat exchangers, but also present new challenges to the cryogenic plants, the distribution system and the controls strategy.

        The poster recalls the basic LHC cooling concept with superfluid helium and define the main parameters for the adaption to the FCC requirements. Pressure drop and hydrostatic head is developed in the distribution and pumping systems; their impact on the magnet temperature profile and the corresponding cooling efficiency is presented and compared for different distribution and pumping schemes.

        Pneumatic free valve actuators

        Large cryogenic systems as projected for FCC need a large number of cryogenic and warm valves. Most of these valves are control or metering valves guided by a PLC generated signal. Furthermore also, actuated shut-off valves are needed. Today such valves are driven by pneumatic actuators with electro-pneumatic control. The supply pneumatic system and electric signal cabling increases with the number of valves, is energy intensive, needs space and continuous servicing. Not at least operation and capital costs for such an electro-pneumatic system are quite high.
        One can observe new developments in in the refrigeration, natural gas and energy industries which use pneumatic free electric driven control and shut-off valves.
        Based on the positive experiences in these industries, innovative cryogenic and warm valves, actuated by an electrical stepper motor were developed. Together with the control module the full functionality including fail open or fail closed positions as well as many further control advantages are available. Using this type of valves allows a highly simplified installation. These advantages open a potential to reduce operation and capital costs remarkably.
        Presently, available are valves driven by an electrical stepper motor up to size DN40 depending on the requested shut-off pressure. For bigger valves and higher shut-off pressure, actuators with their own electro-hydraulic drive control system are available.
        Examples of such valves will be shown and described. Future development perspectives as well as problems for application in accelerator cryogenic systems like radiation proof request will be discussed.

        A scalable and open system for complex system behaviour assessment

        Particle accelerators exhibit complex behaviour emerging from the interaction of diverse machine systems, services, beam and environmental conditions. Since 2015 we explore the fitness of probabilistic reliability engineering to particle accelerators. The investigation relies on the LHC as use-case. Results indicate that the approach, already well established in manufacturing, automotive, pharmaceutical, process and other industries fits well the needs of particle accelerator facilities. Consequently, an R&D project has been launched to develop an open method to model and simulate the behaviour large systems efficiently.
        It does not rely on graphical user interfaces, permits specifying large sets of equipment characteristics in time and space saving manner, adequately addresses building models in a collaborative fashion, is data store agnostic and is incrementally extensible to different modelling techniques and simulation engines. Considering the processing requirements, the implementation by Ramentor will also permit deployment in a distributed computing cluster, leading simulation times cut by a factor 10 to 100. The approach and tool will help building reliability, availability and energy
        efficiency into the designs of a future circular collider. Ramentor will offer the suite to industrial clients for the assessment and improvement of energy efficiency and availability in very diverse domains such as data centres, cargo handling and natural gas distribution.

        Impact of large beam-induced heat loads on the transient operation of the beam screens and cryogenic plants of the Future Circular Collider (FCC)

        The Future Circular Collider (FCC) under study at CERN will produce 50-TeV high-energy proton beams. The high-energy particle beams are bent by 16-T superconducting dipole magnets operating at 1.9 K and distributed over a circumference of 80 km. The circulating beams induce 5 MW of dynamic heat loads by several processes such as synchrotron radiation, resistive dissipation of beam image currents and electron clouds. This beam-induced heat loads will be intercepted by beam screens operating between 40 and 60 K and induce challenging transients during beam injection, energy ramp-up and beam ejection on the distributed beam-screen cooling loops, the sector cryogenic plants and the dedicated circulators.

        Based on the current baseline parameters, numerical simulations of the fluid flow in the cryogenic distribution system during a beam operational cycle were performed. The effects of the thermal inertia of the headers on the helium flow temperature at the cryogenic plant inlet as well as the temperature gradient experienced by the beam screens has been assessed. Additionally, it enabled a thorough exergetic analysis of different cryogenic plant configurations and laid the building-block for establishing design specifications of cold or warm circulators.

        Bose–Einstein condensation in strong interaction processes

        A multiparticle Bose–Einstein symmetrization can enhance the emission of pions and as consequence can lead to the pion condensation in strong interactions at high energies. Onset of the Bose–Einstein condensation is driven by the critical space density of charged secondary bosons which are mostly pions. The energy dependence of space pion density at freeze-out and its critical value, calculated from estimations for volume of emission region and for total multiplicity, is investigated for both the proton-proton and the nucleus-nucleus collisions. The space-time extent of emission region is derived with help of the Bose–Einstein correlations of pion pairs produced in various collisions within the framework of the Gaussian model for particle source. It is shown that the space density of charged particles is smaller than its critical value and Bose–Einstein condensation cannot be expected for secondary pions in proton-proton collisions at energies up to about 100 TeV or even higher. A marked enhancement is observed for charged pion density in heavy ion collisions with respect to the proton-proton ones at similar collision energies. Relation between the charged particle density and its critical value allow the possibility of Bose–Einstein condensation for secondary pions in nucleus-nucleus collisions in multi-TeV energy domain. Therefore the experimental manifestations can be expected for qualitatively new effects in multiparticle production processes in energy domain of the Future Circular Collider project.

        Scalar particles of the Higgs Triplet Models at the FCC with low energy constraints

        Discovery of the Higgs particle at the LHC confirmed the mechanism of mass generation predicted by the Standard Model. However, the Standard Model leaves some problems unsolved and many attemps to construct more sophisticated theory are undertaken. This poster will concentrate on non-standard models with triplet extention of the scalar sector of the electroweak theory like Higgs Triplet Model. Additional triplets in the scalar sector involve singly and doubly charged scalar particles, depending on the hypercharge of the implemented triplet. Those types of particles contribute to (g-2) and Lepton Flavour Violatin (LFV) processes. Taking into account low energy constraints it is possible to limit the parameters space and analyse signals which could be observed at the FCC collider.

        Probing the light quark Yukawa couplings through rare exclusive Higgs boson decays

        Following the discovery of a Higgs boson with a mass of about 125 GeV, subsequent measurements have confirmed its central role in the spontaneous breaking of electroweak symmetry. Currently, a wide-reaching programme of measurements is being proposed both for the HL-LHC
        and future electron-positron colliders to clarify the properties of the observed Higgs boson. Nevertheless, its role in the generation of fermion mass, in particular for the first and second generation, is still unclear. In the Standard Model (SM) this is implemented in an ad hoc manner through Yukawa interactions, and many beyond-the-SM theories offer rich phenomenology and exciting prospects for the discovery of New Physics in this sector.
        The measurement of the rare exclusive decays H->Vγ, where V denotes a vector meson, is a unique probe of the Higgs boson coupling to light quarks, and provides sensitivity to a multitude of BSM scenarios. These measurements constitute a programme which is unique to hadron collider facilities due to the required large sample of Higgs bosons: a 100 TeV FCC-hh would be an ideal facility to measure these otherwise inaccessible quantities.
        The sensitivity of a FCC-hh to probe these exclusive Higgs boson decays is assessed for the first time, and the potential to test the Standard Model and constrain new physics models is discussed.

        Internal tin strands designed in RF for application in high field dipoles

        In spite of the maturity of Nb3Sn internal tin wires designing and production routes there are still significant R&D needed for attaining of the challenging set of requirements specific for high field dipole magnets. The development of layouts and processing of Nb3Sn internal tin strands with non copper critical current density exceeding 2450 A/mm2 altogether with reasonably low hysteresis losses are carried out in the Bochvar Institute (RF).
        Experimental study on the limitations of the different approaches to the diffusion barrier design has been carried out. Two types of strands containing one common barrier and numerous barriers surrounding each of the subelements have been produced. The model wires 1.0 to 0.36 mm in diameter have been subjected to reaction heat treatment and the microstructure of Nb3Sn layers was investigated. The superconducting characteristics of the strands designed and produced were investigated.
        The influence of the design features of developed superconductors and the heat treatment regimes on the current-carrying capacity and relative residual resistance ratio (RRR) has been studied. The relationship between temperature and duration of reaction and the characteristics of the superconducting Nb3Sn layer in the manufactured superconductors are discussed.
        As the result of the carried out research the optimal regimes of the reaction for each layout of the obtained superconductors have been developed.

        Analysis of stresses in a 16-T superconducting dipole during a quench

        The copper current density plays important role in the quench protection of superconducting magnets. In non-graded magnets the worst case hot spot is typically at the location of the highest magnetic field and with active quench protection the temperature of the rest of the magnet is kept relatively isothermal. Graded superconducting magnets pose new challenges to the quench protection because the maximum copper current density is cable dependent. The worst case hot spot is not anymore typically at the location exposed to the highest magnetic field. At the same time significant temperature gradients may occur at the interface between different cables. This means that the quench protection becomes also a mechanical issue. In this paper we study the quench protection of a 16-T EuroCirCol FCC dipole design from mechanical point of view. We use finite element analysis to study the worst case stresses in the magnet assembly during its entire use cycle: pre-loading, cool down, energising and quench event. In addition, we study stresses caused by different quench events to find limiting conditions for magnet and quench protection system design.

        First considerations of the layout and lattice design of SPPC

        For precision measurement of Higgs bason and searching for evidences of new physics beyond the Standard Model, China proposed a strategy of CEPC-SPPC, which plans to build a pp collider ( SPPC ) after the phase of ee Higgs factory ( CEPC ). In November 2016, CEPC-SPPC Steering Committee decided to adopt the baseline design of 100 km tunnel. This paper will present the progress of lattice design of SPPC. The lattice design is mainly constrained by tunnel layout, maximum dipole strength, C.O.M energy, beam optics and so on. The following problems have been considered carefully in our study. Firstly, constrained by the tunnel length of 100 km and maximum dipole strength of 16 T, lattice design with large dipole filling factor may reduce the difficulty in obtaining C.O.M energy of 100 TeV; secondary, the maximum strength of quadrupole and the value of beam optics in arcs should be acceptable; thirdly, considering the compatibility problem between CEPC and SPPC tunnel, the lattice design should have the ability of adjusting the layout slightly in the future. This Paper presents our first considerations of the layout and beam optics of SPPC based on the new baseline of 100 km tunnel - 16 T dipoles - 100 TeV C.O.M energy, including the designs of arc structure, dispersion suppressor, and high - luminosity insertion. Dynamics aperture have been estimated by using SixTrack based on the first version of lattice of SPPC, and the preliminary result of dynamics aperture will be presented in this paper too.

We discuss the characteristics of this radiation in terms of power, flux, photon spectrum and fans in different running conditions such as, for example, with and without crossing angle.

        Modeling approaches for the beam impedance contribution of pumping holes

        The current FCC-hh beam screen proposal includes pumping holes of considerable area hidden behind a shield. Although each hole's contribution to the ring impedance is negligible, the effect of a large number of pumping holes in a very large ring (constructive interference) has to be considered.

        On one hand, due to evanescent coupling and the shield, space-discretisizing eigenmode and wakefield computations produce significant numerical noise considering those effects. On the other hand, the hole dimensions are too large in comparison to the chamber dimensions to be treated using substitute elementary dipoles.

        After reviewing numerical limits of Floquet-periodic FEM eigenmode computation, we approach the problem by adapting existing Field Matching techniques to a simplified FCC-hh beam screen geometry. Due to the possibility of discretising the fields only in the hole areas, computation time and accuracy may be sufficient to yield qualitative results.

        Pressure profile in the experimental areas of FCC hh and ee, calculation by an analytical code

        Ultra high vacuum in the beam pipe is a basic requirement for the Future Circular Colliders (FCC). The dimension of the FCC and the high energy of the particles will make this requirement challenging. Simulations that predict the vacuum quality due to material and beam induced effects will allow to evaluate different designs and to choose an optimal solution.

        The mathematical model behind the simulations will be shown. Four coupled differential equations describe the mass conservation of the residual gas particles in the beam pipe. The sinks include all kind of distributed and local pumping. The sources are caused by synchrotron radiatin, electron clouds, thermal outgassing and ion-induced desorption.

        The equation system is solved by an analytical method. This requires a transformation to first order equations for which a general valid solution exists. Adding a particular solution and the inclusion of appropriate boundary conditions define the solution function. The big advantage here is that an analytical simulation delivers fast results over large systems.

        The model has been implemented in a Python environment. It has been cross checked with programs like VASCO and MolFlow. Additionally, data obtained from the Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC) gauges were compared to the simulation output. This validates the program and gives trust to produce accurate vacuum forecasts for the FCC.
        Finally, simulations will be shown for the hadron-hadron collider FCC-hh. Possible designs will be evaluated for the long straight sections including interaction points.

        High-Temperature Superconductor Coating for the FCC Beam Screen

        The baseline design of the FCC-hh beam screen is based on a 1 mm thick octagonal shaped stainless steel tube coated with a 300µm layer of copper. In the foreseen operating temperature of 40K to 60K the intended coating provides an impedance already close to the acceptable limit for a stable beam. In order to reduce the coupling impedance, we investigate High-Temperature Superconductor (HTS) thin films in the form of stripes. It promises a lower impedance by screening the beam induced radio frequency currents. The effect of different coatings will be estimated as well as the impact of the applied 16T dipole field on the material properties. The characteristics of HTS under temperature, frequencies and magnetic fields are discussed. Numerical results for the beam screen impedance obtained by the two-dimensional finite element solver BeamImpedance2D [1] are presented.

        Solid-State Marx Generators for use in the Injection Kickers of the Future Circular Collider

        A 100 TeV centre-of-mass energy frontier proton collider, in a new tunnel of 80–100 km circumference, is a central part of CERN’s Future Circular Colliders (FCC) design study. The FCC will require extremely reliable kicker systems to ensure safe injection of beam. Most existing kicker systems at CERN rely on technologies which include thyratron switches and pulse-forming networks/lines (PFN/PFL). However thyratrons are susceptible to untriggered (erratic) turn-on which negatively impacts system reliability. In addition long-term commercial availability of thyratrons is a real concern. Hence alternative fast-switch technologies, based on high power semiconductor devices, are being investigated for replacing thyratrons in kicker applications: one of these technologies is the Marx generator. A semiconductor based Marx generator topology would also potentially resolve another problem, as it would eliminate the need for difficult-to-source PFL cable for the highest voltage (~80 kV) kicker systems. This paper discusses initial ideas for the application of solid-state Marx generators as thyratron replacements, with specific focus on the FCC injection system. In addition, preliminary test results on fast switching, high voltage, Silicon Carbide MOSFETS are presented and discussed.

        Axial channeling of high-energy protons in bent crystals as a tool for beam steering or splitting in high-energy hadron accelerators

        As a charged particle beam is aligned with one of the main axes of a slightly bent crystal, most of the particles follows the crystal curvature due to multiple scattering with bent crystal atomic strings, the so called stochastic deflection. Indeed, in the case of positively charged particles, a portion of the beam may escape from the axial confinement to planar channeling. We investigated such mechanism at the external line H8 of CERN SPS with 400 GeV/c protons [1]. Two bent crystals were selected for the purpose, the first to meet the condition for stochastic deflection, the second, with a smaller bending radius, not to meet it.
        We individuated a necessary condition for the exploitation of axial confinement for particle beam manipulation in high-energy accelerators. In the first mode exploited for the first bent crystal tested, total relaxation from axial to planar channeling is prevented and a bent crystal may be used as an efficient deflector for the whole beam. This first mode can be exploited to improve the beam collimation in the LHC, but also in future FCC-hh through an efficient deflection of the beam halo.
        In the second regime used for the second crystal, escape of particles to the skew planar channels is favored and a short (few mm) Si crystal can be exploited to efficiently split the beam into two separated beams with adjustable intensity. This regime can be used in hadron accelerators, such as FCC-hh, for realization of both beam extraction and layout of the extracted beam to several beam lines by means of one passive and space-saving device.

        Radiation Monitoring Technologies and Irradiation Test Facilities for FCC

        The Future Circular Collider (FCC) is being designed to reach h-h collisions at an unprecedented energy level of 100 TeV, about 8 times higher than in today`s Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Because of the increased energy and luminosity during FCC operation, radiation levels will likely exceed several tens of MGy (with >10e17 particles/cm2) inside the FCC experiments, and tens of KGy (with >10e15 particles/cm2) in certain sectors of the FCC tunnel itself. These estimations correspond to factors of 1000 and 100 with respect to the expected conditions at LHC and HL-LHC, respectively. To withstand such a harsh radiation environment special materials and technologies are required, implying strict component selection and development of custom qualification protocols taking into account possible dependencies of the radiation response to different technologies.

        A survey of state-of-the-art solid-state devices for radiation measurement showed that current existing technologies are not capable of integrating such radiation levels, as well as of providing viable solutions to build an on-line radiation monitor fulfilling the FCC requirements. For these reasons, a completely novel dosimetry structure is under development as potential solution for Ultra High Dose and Fluence Monitoring. The technology consists of thin film resistive structures deposited on silicon wafers, where sensitivity to displacement damage, measurable in a variation of their electrical properties, can be trimmed by variating geometrical (thickness, W, L) and physical (material) properties of the nanolayers. The devices are fabricated at EPFL Centre of Micronanotechnology, and specific high-fluence irradiation tests (with gamma, protons, neutrons) are being carried out in CERN facilities and outside CERN. Limitations of the existing solid-state dosimeters, as well as a proposal for a new dosimetric technology based on metal thin films are presented.

        In a wider scope, the development and characterization of novel devices as described above, as well as experiment and detector components for FCC, need adequate radiation test facilities. The requirements of the FCC community (machine and experiments) in terms of radiation test facilities and the observable shortcomings of the ones currently available at CERN are also presented.

        Remote manipulations and application of unconventional repair technologies in the FCC tunnel

        Following the FCC study and its recent developments, it is evident that due to the nature, size, scale and complexity of the environment, the deployment of conventional repair methods and technologies will be insufficient in the FCC. Human intervention will be limited or even counterproductive because of the safety issues, time constraints and related costs. At the same time, it appears that the FCC infrastructure will be so large and complex that the potential for failures or malfunctions will increase exponentially. Therefore, the FCC may face an unprecedented amount of technical glitches and problems to resolve.
        The prospective solution for the FCC is remote manipulations and unconventional repair technologies. However, this will largely depend on the general maintenance and repair strategy chosen for the FCC: preventive or predictive maintenance, or run-to-failure?
        Advanced robotic and remote manipulation systems, along with novel in-situ repair technologies, offer tangible repair results. Hence one of the solutions for the FCC is a remotely controlled robotic platform performing in-situ additive manufacturing repairs. This could be performed at micro and macro levels, i.e. both in the accelerator structure and the actual civil engineering installations. Concrete examples of applications of this technology are provided in the paper and presentation.
        Since there are numerous challenges to overcome, the new concepts have to be developed to address environmental, safety, technological and operational issues. This paper and the presentation includes analysis of these challenges.
        Finally, the aforementioned concepts could be used not only during operation but also in the construction, installation and testing phase of the FCC.

        Experimental investigation of adsorption and desorption processes of cryosorbed gases on proposed FCC accelerator walls

        In FCC-hh one of the most challenging issue will be the control of all possible instabilities that could occur. In order to do so,most simulation programs need realistic inputs measured in experimental conditions as close as possible to the ones that will occur in the machine. Most of the accelerators walls will see the beam while being at low temperatures and their relevant properties will not only depend on the technical materials but also on the presence of cryosorbed residual gas condensed on cold surfaces. Gas layers may affect vacuum stability and secondary electrons yield even in case of tiny wall temperature fluctuations. Studying SEY,it’s possible to obtain direct information about its value,which is of great relevance in e-cloud related simulations,and on the presence of any gas overlayer. In fact,SEY depends both on the bulk and the surface composition,giving direct information about surface contamination and on different adsorbed gases and molecules.Here we present a study on the SEY of a Cu surface exposed at low temperature to different gases.Adsorption and desorption occurring in different temperature ranges change the SEY that can be directly correlated with the number of layers adsorbed. The measure of SEY it’s used here,for the first time,as a novel technique to extract relevant information on the actual adsorption/desorption process. Such SEY studies are compared with Quadrupole mass spectrometry showing the potentialities of the new approach here proposed.

        Kicker pulse generator anomaly detection for reliability improvements through advanced machine learning

        Reliability, availability and maintainability are parameters that determine if a large-scale accelerator system can be operated in a sustainable and cost effective manner. Beam transfer equipment such as kicker systems are critical components with potential significant impact on global performance of the entire machine complex. Identifying the root cause of a malfunction can be a challenging and tedious task due to the always increasing complexity of such systems. Manual extraction and analysis of this information seems excluded for a future collider with more systems and an even higher complexity.
        The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) models can assist in this task leveraging existing frameworks and libraries for machine learning. A collaboration between CERN and the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) was founded to conduct such a research for an existing data set. A subset of historical data from the LHC logging database is used and logged data of the LHC injection kicker magnet pulse generators has been chosen as a first case study. The goal is to apply supervised and unsupervised learning techniques from open-source libraries such as the Scikit-learn Python library to extract useful features to create a model that detects anomalies without human interaction, both on historical data as live data from the equipment.

        Simulations of High efficiency Klystron

        In the application on the contemporary large particle colliders, increasing the efficiency of Klystron indicates substantial decrease of the operating cost, especially in a long run. There are lots of methods and concepts to increase the Klystron effeciency, which consistently engage to collect the peripheral electrons in the bunching process to achieve a very deep modulation at the entrance of the output cavity. To make a more compact high effeciency Klystron operating in L band, with MW output power, a new method called CSM(core stablization method) employs a set of high order harmonic cavities to focus the beam longitudinally. As a demonstration, single beam Klystron based on CSM method is designed by 1-D code and verified by 3-D simulations. This L-band Klystron can produce 1.4MW microwave power with the conversion effeciency of 80%, while the total length of interaction region is less than 2 meters.

The studies presented in this contribution are focused on the electromagnetic interactions of the beam with the surrounding environment in the accelerator Interaction Region. In particular, we will analyse the wake fields induced by the beam, the resulting power loss, the heat load due to possible high order modes that could remain trapped and the electron cloud induced heat load in the two final focusing magnets and field-free region.

        Production of High Mass Charged Higgs Boson at FCC-hh

        Possible extensions of the Higgs sector can be searched for a wide range of parameter space in the high energy proton-proton collisions.

One of the future international projects currently under consideration is the Future Circular Collider (FCC) which has the potential to search for a wide parameter range of new physics. The FCC-hh collider is to provide proton-proton collisions at nearly an order of magnitude higher energy than the LHC. We have studied the production and decay of charged Higgs boson at FCC-hh with a center of mass energy of 100 TeV, which extends the parameter space of Higgs sector with a high luminosity of 500 fb^(-1).
        The decay modes of the charged Higgs boson can be well similar to the background reactions from top and bottom quarks and other sources. The charged Higgs boson signal can be distinguished from the background for m_H up to 2 TeV.

        The development of High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) dipoles is fundamental for future high magnetic field accelerators. In this context, CERN is currently producing a series of HTS demonstrator dipoles, named FeaTHeR (Five Tesla HTS Research) dipoles. The FeaTHeR-M0 coils are subscale planar racetrack dipoles designed to test fabrication techniques in magnets wound with ReBCO-Roebel cable, and gain experience in quench detection and protection. A set of these demonstrator dipoles will be tested at variable temperature in the 11 T background field of the SULTAN facility. Two upgrades are required in SULTAN for the test of the FeaTHeR dipoles. First, the sample dipoles have to be installed inside a cryostat where the temperature can be regulated between 4.5 and 50 K. The cryostat will be equipped with high current feedthroughs, which can provide more than 10 kA at 50 K to the sample while minimizing the heat leak to the Nb-Ti transformer of SULTAN. The second required upgrade is a counter flow heat exchanger, which will ensure that the warm helium leaving the sample returns to the cryoplant as cold gas at less than 20 K. The construction and commissioning of the new sample cryostat and heat exchanger will be presented along with results of the tests of the first HTS demonstrator dipoles in the SULTAN facility.

        Compact common-coil design for a future collider

        "High field accelerator dipoles are the enabling technology for future colliders surpassing the energy reach of LHC.
        The effectiveness of adopting a common-coil layout, featuring flat racetrack coils shared between the two magnetic apertures, is investigated here. The common coil layout offers potential advantages such as use of flat cables and larger bending radius at the coil ends. However, the vertical arrangement of the two apertures is less efficient than the traditional case with the two apertures placed side by side, from both the magnetic and mechanical standpoint.
        In this study we attempt to address these challenges and provide an attractive and compact common coil design in the field and aperture range of interest. Key performance parameters such as maximum field as a function of superconductor volume and overall magnet size, field quality, mechanical support, and quench protection in the accelerator, will be discussed.

        A Code for Optimising Triplet Layout

        One of the main challenges when designing final focus systems of particle accelerators is maximising the beam stay clear in the strong quadrupole magnets of the inner triplet. Moreover it is desirable to keep the quadrupoles in the inner triplet as short as possible for space and costs reasons but also to reduce chromaticity and simplify corrections schemes. An algorithm that explores the triplet parameter space to optimise both these aspects was written. It uses thin lenses as a first approximation for a broad parameter scan and MADX for more precise calculations. The thin lens algorithm is significantly faster than a full scan using MADX and relatively precise at indicating the approximate area where the optimum solution lies.

        Strategies to reduce the voltage to ground in the FCC main dipole circuits

        Within the FCC project, the EuroCirCol Work Package 5 is dedicated to the study of the high-field, high-current superconducting dipole magnets. The target performance of these magnets, together with the unprecedented size of the accelerator, poses a number of challenges as, among others, machine integration and protection.
        As for the LHC, dipole magnets have to be powered in long strings, resulting in large stored energy in the circuits. In case of a quench or equipment failure, a safe extraction of the circuit energy in a short amount of time is very challenging due to the development of high voltages to ground.
        The voltage to ground in the coils of a magnet is composed by two contributions: the voltage drop over the string from the grounding point to the magnet input and its internal voltage distribution. The higher the unbalance between resistive and inductive voltage during the current discharge, the higher the resulting voltage to ground.
        In this paper, we discuss dedicated strategies to reduce the voltage to ground both at the circuit level and at the level of the powering layout of single magnets. Numerical simulations support the results, considering electrical transients at the circuit level together with magneto-thermal transients occurring at the magnet level during a quench. In this context, we also present the effect of the Coupling-Loss Induced Quench (CLIQ) system, a magnet protection technology recently developed at CERN, on the voltage to ground distribution.

        Eliminating field distortions caused by the HTS beam screen coating

        In order to decrease the beam impedance the beam screen of the FCC ring is planned to receive a high-temperature superconductor coating. However the persistent currents induced in the coating would distort the ring's magnetic field. Rather than trying to suppress this effect we examine the possibility to use a tailored thickness profile of the coating such that these currents produce a field with the same symmetry as the external field, giving an offset to the external field rather than distorting it, which can be compensated by proper current settings.

        New design concepts for suppressing erratic triggering of solid state switch stacks

        The proposed FCC Beam Dump architecture consists of a large number of kicker magnets to assure a fast and safe beam deflection. The High Voltage (HV) pulse generators will produce fast controlled capacitor discharges through HV power switches into lumped inductance magnets. As for the LHC Beam Dump System (LBDS), an erratic triggering (i.e. self-trigger) of one or more of the 300 generator switches cannot be avoided and will deflect the circulating beam and could significantly damage the machine. The standard mitigation is a retrigger mechanism that ensures the triggering of the remaining generators, but the kicker rise time is then unsynchronised with the beam abort gap(s) and hence several bunches will be steered on the machine extraction and downstream equipment.
        Two alternative generator topologies for tackling the problem of erratic triggers at the source are studied: the use of additional shorting crowbar or series blocking switches. Both topologies can limit the current in the kicker magnet with the aim to reduce or eradicate the impact on the beam. This can result in a higher system reliability but the impact on availability needs to be acceptable. The results of electrical simulation models are presented in addition to topology advantages and disadvantages. A low-voltage test-bench has been built and the results of the associated tests are discussed.

        Investigation of the mechanical properties of epoxy impregnated Nb3Sn cables

        In the framework of the FCC study, the Nb3Sn technology plays a crucial role for high-field superconducting magnets. The new generation Nb3Sn cable greatly contributes to bring the magnetic field produced by the superconducting dipole magnets to the 16 T level; nevertheless, its mechanical properties are unknown making it difficult to predict the mechanical behaviour of the magnet structure. For this reason, an extended experimental campaign on specimens made from a stack of 10 Nb3Sn cables was launched at CERN. The 10-stack can be considered a representative sample of the magnet coil because it is produced following the same construction process: curing, reaction and impregnation. The experimental campaign consists of compression tests along the three sample directions at room temperature and 77 K. A dedicated test bench was designed to measure the vertical and lateral deformations of the sample. This work presents the production process of the Nb3Sn 10 stacks and the features of the experimental setup. The stress-strain relationships and the Poisson’s ratios are analysed focusing on the effect of loading speed rate and temperature.

        First results of large size SRF cavity fabrication by electrohydraulic forming

        In the framework of Future Circular Collider study, copper coated with niobium cavities must be fabricated to operate at a frequency of 400MHz. The two half-cells, to make one cavity, are traditionally manufactured by spinning through multiple forming steps, comprising intermediates heat treatments to achieve the required shape. Finally, the two half-cells are welded at the equator by electron-beam welding.

        Shape conformity and processing time are key factors for the optimization of cavity fabrication. An alternative to conventional shaping method is electrohydraulic forming (EHF). By EHF, half-cells are obtained through ultra-high speed deformation of blank sheets, using shockwaves induced in water by a pulsed electrical discharge. With reference to traditional methods, this process brings about interesting results in terms of final shape precision, repeatability, higher formability and reduced spring back. This shaping technology has been tested at CERN for smaller half-cells (704MHz) and promising results were achieved in terms of shape accuracy and damaged layer in the material after forming.

        In this work, large half-cells of Cu are produced by EHF for the first time. This new method and the conventional one (spinning) are compared regarding shape accuracy, mechanical properties and material characterization.

        Neutron irradiation

        For the design of FCC-hh superconducting magnets an increase of the high field critical currents in commercial Nb3Sn wires by about 50 % is required. Feasibility of reaching this target has already been demonstrated by fast neutron irradiation induced defects. In this study, the underlying mechanisms are investigated through combined microstructural and magnetic analysis for realization in an industrial process.

        A research reactor was used to irradiate Nb3Sn wires and TEM samples. Micro- and nanostructural examinations of grain geometry, grain boundary morphology, compositional gradients, local texture and defect structure were performed by transmission electron microscopic methods such as HRTEM, EDX, EELS and selected area diffraction before and after irradiation. The results thereof are correlated with superconducting measurements such as transport, magnetometry and scanning Hall probe experiments to determine the global critical current as well as the local critical current density within the subelements.

        This study contributes to a better understanding of the influence of irradiation damage and the resulting microstructure on local superconducting properties and ultimately on the macroscopic performance of the superconductor.

        Development of Distributed Tin processed Nb3Sn wire for FCC

        Kobe Steel Ltd. have been doing research of Nb3Sn wire since 1980s’, and Japan Superconductor Technology, Inc. (JASTEC), one of her affilieted company manufacturing superconducting wire and magunet, has high production capacity of Bronz(Cu-Sn alloy) routed Nb3Sn wire. JASTEC was one of the main supplier of Nb3Sn strand for ITER (International Thermal Experimental Reactor) project, and supplied amount of more than 100tons of bronze routed Nb3Sn wire in total for ITER project from 2008 to 2016. Jc requirement for Nb3Sn in FCC project is much higher than ITER project. In the case of bronze routed Nb3Sn wire, Jc could be increased by the enhancement of tin concentration in Cu-Sn alloy. But higher tin concentration (more than 16% tin) makes it difficult for drawing process. So, as one of alternative method to increase tin concentration, KSL is developing Distributed Tin wire (DT wire). With this method we can improve Jc at 16 Tesla twice than the conventional our bronze routed Nb3Sn. In addition, DT compared with other high tin concentration methods such as Internal Tin, it can be manufactured stably, so it is suitable for mass production. In this presentation, we will introduce our research for increasing Jc using DT wire.

        Beam abort system for the FCC-ee

        The conceptual design of an abort system for the future electron positron circular collider is presented. A dedicated abort system has been studied based on MAD-X simulations. The proposed abort system consists of abort kickers, septum magnets and a dilution kicker system. The abort system must safely remove the beam from the accelerator ring and transport it to a dedicated beam dump. The dilution kickers must spread the beam evenly on the surface of the beam dump and on the vacuum chamber window, in order to prevent damages due to high energy electron and positron beams. Simulation studies are carried out in order to determine an operational configuration of the abort system and the required apertures of the abort beam lines.

Three options are considered: block-coils, common-coils and cosine-¬theta, the workload being shared between several European institutes. All options are explored and compared based on the same assumptions, in particular in what regards the conductor performance, operating temperature and margin.

        Overview of optics tuning results and tolerances

        "The FCC-ee project foresees to build a 100 km e+/e- circular collider for precision studies and rare decay observations in the range of 90 to 350 GeV center of mass energy with luminosities in the order of 10^35 cm^-2s^-1. In
        order to reach such performances, an extrem focusing of the beam is required in the interaction regions with a low vertical beta function of 2mm at the IP.
        Moreover, the FCC-ee physics program requires also very low emittance never achieved in a collider with 1nm for eps_x and 2pm for eps_y, bringing down the coupling ratio to 2/1000. In order to reach such performances, coupling and vertical dispersion sources should be under control.
        This paper describes the low tolerance of the machine to magnet alignment errors and the optics correction methods that were implemented in order to bring the vertical dispersion to reasonable values. The betatron coupling being also a very important source of emittance growth, its correction has been integrated to the challenging correction scheme to keep the vertical emittance as low as possible."

The Australian Synchrotron is a SR facility in the Australia, and it has a remarkable long range beamline for medical imaging. We can construct a Young’s type double slit interferometer in this beam line which will be similar to the design proposed for the FCC-ee SR monitor. A visible light SR interferometer on the neighbouring Optical Diagnostic Beamline (ODB) will be used as the gold standard for cross checking the performance of the novel x-ray interferometer. These measurements will be tested in the vertical plane due to the exceptionally small vertical beam size that can be achieved in the Australian Synchrotron storage ring.

        SppC collimation study

        In LHC, the limiting locations in terms of losses on cold magnets are the dispersion suppressors downstream of the transverse collimation insertion. These losses are due to the protons experiencing single diffractive interactions in the primary collimators. How to solve this problem is very important for future proton-proton collider, such as FCC and SPPC. An effective method which arranges both the transverse and momentum collimation in the same cleaning insertion has been studied at SPPC. The momentum collimation system will clean those particles those protons related to the single diffractive effect. This has been confirmed by multi-particle simulations. In addition, superconducting quadrupoles with special designs such as enlarged aperture and good shielding are being considered to enhance the phase advance in the transverse collimation section, so that tertiary collimators can be arranged to clean off the tertiary halo which emerges from the secondary collimators and improve the collimation efficiency. Multi-particle simulation results with the Merlin code confirm the effectiveness of the method with the additional collimation stage. The particle losses in the warm drifts and the beginning of the momentum collimation insertion are reduced significantly.

Usual ways to control the instabilities, such as nonlinear octupole magnets, beam feedback dampers, employment of chromatic effects as well as standard types of the "hard-material" collimators become less effective at the ultimate FCC-hh beam paramters. We briefly present two applications electron lenses which utilize space-charge forces of low-energy, magnetically stabilized electron beams: 1) a novel method to provide sufficient Landau damping in the particle beams ; and 2) hollow electron beam collimation. The proposed methods are free of operational limitations, cost effective and show great promise for the FCC-hh.

These solutions are able to guarantee acceptable pre-stress to the 16 T magnet, even considering the huge Lorentz forces. Such solutions fulfill also the goal of keeping the stress on the superconducting cables below 150 MPa at room temperature and below 200 MPa at 4 K. Potentially dangerous detachment of the coil from the inner pole are also avoided. Also the stress induced in the supporting materials (i.e. austenitic steel for the collar, electrical steel for the yoke and titanium for the inner pole) are kept below each corresponding yield limits.

        Protection of the 16 T EuroCircol dipoles

        As a part of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) project, the European Circular Energy-Frontier Collider Study (EuroCirCol) is aiming to design a 16 T Nb3Sn accelerator dipole magnet that could be used in a 100 km 100 TeV hadron collider. In addition to provide the required magnetic field, the design aims for a compact and cost-effective magnet. To select the most suitable cross-section type, three options are being explored and compared: Cosθ, Block, Common-Coil. The pursuit for compactness leads to higher energy density magnets, which are more challenging to protect against the effects of quench. The requirements from magnet protection have been considered throughout the magnet design phase. In this paper we present a quench protection system design for all the three magnets, and compare the magnets from the point of view of performance and technical realization of the quench protection system. The magnet protection design is based on a hybrid system including the Coupling Loss Induced Quench system (CLIQ) and quench heaters. The configurations of CLIQ and heaters are designed to complement each other in an optimal way, including the redundancy.

        Correction schemes for the interaction region of FCC-hh

        The interaction region is an important and challenging part of the design of any accelerator. An important aspect of this design is the compensation of the errors in the interaction region, necessary not only to control de orbit deviation but also to ensure the long term stability of the beam. Several errors are expected to be found in the lattice; this study contemplates only errors in the interaction region, particularly alignment and field errors in the quadrupoles of the inner triplet and the separation/recombination dipoles. In order to correct the effects of these errors a correction scheme is used based on a series of correctors arranged along the interaction region and a series of BPMs to monitor the orbit. After the correction procedure we are able to estimate the tolerance on misalignment and field errors in order to provide a good correction measured in terms of deviation of the orbit, strength of the correctors and effects on long term stability via the dynamic aperture.

        Exploring the triplet parameter space to optimise the final focus of the FCC

        One of the main challenges when designing final focus systems of particle accelerators is maximising the beam stay clear in the strong quadrupole magnets of the inner triplet. Moreover it is desirable to keep the quadrupoles in the inner triplet as short as possible for space and costs reasons but also to reduce chromaticity and simplify corrections schemes. An algorithm that explores the triplet parameter space to optimise both these aspects was written. It uses thin lenses as a first approximation and MADX for more precise calculations. In cooperation with radiation studies, this algorithm was then applied to design an alternative triplet for the final focus of the Future Circular Collider.

        Cross-talk simulations between FCC-hh experimental interaction regions

        Debris from 50 TeV proton-proton collisions at the main interaction point in the FCC-hh may contribute to the background in the subsequent detector. This cross-talk is of possible concern for the FCC-hh due to the high luminosity and energy of the collider. Monte Carlo simulations with FLUKA have been performed using a full length model of the tunnel between the adjacent points A and B, in order to account for the muons which are transported through the rock.

        Simulation of the FCC-hh double crystal-based collimation system

        "The FCC-hh collimation system must be designed to prevent quench of superconducting magnets. However, preliminary simulations [1] demonstrate the estimated cleaning inefficiency to be 2 orders less than required. In order to considerably reduce it, we propose a preliminary setup of a double crystal-based collimation system [2].
        The main advantage of the double crystal-based collimation, containing two bent crystals instead of one, is additional halo cleaning by deflection of dechanneled/volume reflected particles by the second crystal. On the one hand this allows one to intercept almost 100% of halo particles by only one passage of the collimation zone, considerably reducing inelastic losses in crystal as well as leakage in absorbers. On the other hand the second crystal does not prevent particle interception by the first one, being placed closer to an absorber in the transverse space.
        We simulate the collimation system suggested using CRYSTAL software [3] as well as compare its efficiency with single crystal-based collimation. We optimize the crystal parameters to maximize the collimation efficiency.

        Dispersion suppressor protection

        The superconducting magnets in the Dispersion suppressors at the end of the straight sections are the main location for beam losses in cold magnets in the LHC. For the FCC this poses a problem due to the much higher beam energies. The losses in these regions mainly come from off-momentum particles due to proton-proton collisions in the experimental areas, and single-diffractive effects from interaction with primary collimators in the cleaning insertions. To protect those magnets and to ensure safe operation of the machine, a new protection system is necessary.
        The requirements for the beam optics have been assessed and suitable space has been integrated in the current lattice to allow the placement of the protection system.
        A collimation system has been designed and optimized with respect to energy deposition in the magnets due to particle showers from the collimators.
        Tracking simulations, using the MERLIN tracking code, have been done to ensure that the new system is effective in catching the off-momentum losses. Shower simulations have been done using the FLUKA code to assess the energy deposition in the downstream magnets and compare it to quench limits.

        Alignment and beam-based correction

        The FCC-hh (Future Hadron-Hadron Circular Collider) is one of the three options considered for the next generation accelerator in high-energy physics as recommended by the European Strategy Group, and the natural evolution of existing LHC. Studies are ongoing about the evaluation of the various magnets mechanical errors and field errors tolerances in the arc sections of FCC-hh, as well as an estimation of the associated correctors strengths.

        In this study an exploration of the possible tolerances is presented, the eventual impact on the correctors technological choice and on the beam screen design are discussed. A comparison with the LHC correction scheme is performed. Also the integration of the insertion regions (interaction region, collimation, etc) into the global correction scheme has been started and is discussed.

        Importance of the surface resistivity for the impedance model

        Transverse mode coupling instability (TMCI) can limit the maximum achievable bunch intensity in the FCC-hh. Impedance due to the resistive walls of the beamscreen makes a significant contribution to the TMCI, especially at the injection energy. The proposed laser treatment of the beamscreen surface for e-cloud mitigation might increase the impedance to a level unacceptable from the beam stability point of view.

        We applied two models to estimate the impedance of a rough surface such as the one produced by the laser. Both models indicate that the TMCI intensity threshold due to the beamscreen alone can decrease by several times, placing serious limitations to the total area that can be treated without sacrificing beam stability. However, actual measurements of the impedance of the treated beamscreen are necessary to draw definite conclusions. We thus argue that such measurements are of critical importance for the FCC-hh.

        Landau damping of intra-bunch oscillations

        Octupole magnets are foreseen in the FCC-hh lattice as a passive mitigation of the transverse collective instabilities. The incoherent betatron tune spread due to octupoles provides Landau damping of the unstable bunch modes. The previous studies for FCC, and estimations for LHC, have considered only the rigid bunch modes. The higher-order modes cause intra-bunch oscillations, which are differently affected by a tune spread . We study the Landau damping of the higher-order bunch modes due to octupoles using the modified dispersion relation and the particle tracking simulations. For a comparison, Landau damping due RF Quadrupoles is considered.

        Design of ERMC-RMM

        The Racetrack Model Magnet (RMM) and the Enhanced Racetrack Model Coil (ERMC), are racetrack test magnets being developed at CERN. Their main goal is to demonstrate, in view of future high field accelerator magnets, that a nominal field of 16 T can be reached in a 50 mm bore, with margins and limited training. Also, this program gives the opportunity of studying field quality, and the opportunity of exploring coil manufacturing concepts as well as loading strategies. In the coil ends, the peak field has to be reduced in order to keep a safe margin. Also, the high longitudinal Lorentz forces must be managed to limit the motion of the coils, which would degrade performances. This presentation shows magnetic and mechanical studies, and proposes solutions to achieve a peak field in the ends lower than in the straight section, while containing the electromagnetic forces.

        A canted cosθ option for the FCC

        The CCT (Canted Cosine Theta) Technology has been studied for its suitability for an FCC main dipole in terms of magnetic and mechanical performance, electro-thermal protectability, as well as efficiency. In this paper we present lessons learnt from our search for efficient CCT solutions by means of 2-D magnetic and mechanical simulations, discuss the 3-D periodic mechanical model, as well as 3-D electromagnetic analysis of the end regions. Temperature and voltage distributions during a quench under simplifying assumptions are discussed. Eventually, we present quench propagation in CCT-type high-field magnets, and how it may impact quench detection when compared to classic cosine-theta coils. Several new insights into efficient CCT design could be gleaned from these types of analyses and are summarized.
        CCT being a much more recent technology in the field of high-field accelerator magnets, a program is under way at LBNL and PSI to catch up with other design options in terms of practical experience and development. In this presentation we will also line out the immediate plans for a 10-T model magnet at PSI, as well as steps towards manufacturing and instrumentation.

        FCC-hh Detector Magnets System baseline and variants

        "As part of the Future Circular Collider conceptual design study for hadron-hadron physics (FCC-hh), conceptual designs of detector magnets are being developed that provide sufficiently large bending power to study the particle products resulting from the 100 TeV collisions.

        This talk focuses on several topics. Firstly, an overview is given of the various previously considered baseline designs to illustrate the design choices that led to the current baseline design. Secondly, the current baseline design, which features a larger superconducting central solenoid and two smaller superconducting forward solenoids, is discussed in terms of magnetic field properties, cold mass, cryostats and support structure, cooling, quench protection, etcetera. Thirdly, potential alternative detector magnet designs are discussed such as a dipole alternative for the forward solenoids and an ultra-thin superconducting central solenoid, where particle products traverse through the detector magnet before interacting with the calorimeters.

        As the magnetic field and space requirements of the trackers, calorimeters, and muon chambers drive the design of the detector magnets, and the overall performance of the detector is in part dependent on the detector magnet performance, the conceptual detector magnet design of is an important component of the FCC-hh detector study.

        FCC-hh Detector Magnet and Detector Integration

        The design of the FCC-hh Experiment and its magnet system is being conducted and in the meantime, a baseline design has been defined. Part of the study is the feasibility of the integration of the detector in its cavern and to develop the requirements on cavern and shaft dimensions. For system integration, the various subsystems in the detector are not independent and the modularity needs to be carefully analyzed. An preliminary proposal for the routing of the various subdetector services and cabling will be presented. This is of paramount importance for developing the maintenance scenarios respecting the limitations in displacement each subdetector element has. Two options for the maintenance scenario will be presented, the first one where access to the inner trackers is provided without breaking the beam pipe, while in the second their replacement has to be envisioned. The cavern dimensions are derived from the maximum envelope taken by the detector during its installation. As for the crane requirements and shaft dimensions, they are mostly determined by the heaviest and largest objects that have to be moved around in the cavern.

        Design studies for the FCC-hh beam dump

        The FCC proton beams pose a severe challenge for the robustness of the beam dump and protection devices. Depending on the local beta-function, already a single 50 TeV bunch can induce damage in typical absorber materials presently used at the LHC (e.g. Graphite or carbon composites). In order to safely absorb the FCC beams in a LHC-like dump, the beams need to be sufficiently diluted across the dump upstream face. This study assesses the dilution kicker requirements and derives energy densities, temperatures and stresses in the dump core and windows for regular sweeps and dilution failures. In particular, the effect of overlapping shower tails from neighbouring bunches and neighbouring branches in the sweep pattern is quantified. Based on the obtained results, the implications for the overall dilution system design are discussed.

        Magnetic core and semiconductor switch characterisation for an Inductive Adder kicker generator

        For the FCC-hh injection kicker magnet system a highly reliable generator is needed. One promising technology to reach the challenging voltage, current, rise time and flat top stability values for this application is an inductive adder (IA) based on high-power semiconductor switches. A prototype IA will be built at CERN to validate the theoretical performance and identify technology limits. Many components influence the performance of the inductive adder, making it a complex device. The two components that have a significant influence are the magnetic cores, which are part of the output transformer, and the semiconducting switches, which allow the current to be both turned on and off. Hence detailed characterisation of samples, including both of these components, are necessary before selecting components for the final prototype. The presentation gives an overview of the IA technology, describes the testing of the magnetic cores and semiconductor switches and presents the results and preliminary decisions for component selection. An outlook is given for the upcoming activities in the next years.

        HL-LHC focusing quadrupoles as precursors to HE-LHC/FCC magnet development

        The world-wide HEP community has identified the exploitation of physics opportunities at the High Luminosity-LHC (HL-LHC) as one of the highest near-term priorities. Thanks to multi-year R&D programs, Laboratories and Universities in America and Europe have developed technical solutions to increase the LHC luminosity by bringing the Nb3Sn technology for magnets to production readiness. In the next ~5 years, the experience gained building ~30 ""accelerator quality"" focusing quadrupoles for HL-LHC will represent a treasure chest of knowledge and capabilities on which plans for future high energy hadron machine can be based.

        The proposed presentation will cover the plans and achievements of magnets for the HL-LHC Project, and will describe some of the issues on which further development and coordinated work is necessary to converge on magnets meeting the requirement of proposed future hadron colliders, such as a possible High Energy-LHC (HE-LHC).

        Impedance model and collective effects for FCC-ee

        FCC-ee is an e+e- circular collider designed to accelerate and collide counter-propagating beams of electrons and positrons. One of the fundamental aspects to be addressed in the design phase is the intensity limitation due to collective effects and the impedance budget. The machine design must be such that the global machine impedance as well as individual equipment do not pose any limits for nominal operation to reach the required machine perfomance.
        Although this collider will operate at room temperature, as in the case of other lepton colliders, the heat load in specific machine locations could still represent one of the major issues for the operation with nominal parameters. In particular, we will analyze the electron cloud induced heat load in both the arc components and interaction region magnets.
        Besides, preliminary studies on transverse and longitudinal instabilities due to resistive wall and other vacuum chamber components will be also presented, which will help to provide specifications on the coating compatible with the nominal operation and a possible way to reduce the beam coupling impedance.

        In a storage ring, interaction between the fundamental impedance of the accelerating cavities and the beam determines such important longitudinal properties as bunch length, synchronous phase, synchrotron frequency, and others. This interaction is especially important in machines with large circumference and high stored beam current. In this work, steady-state beam loading effects will be estimated for the FCC-ee parameters. Several techniques for managing these effects will also be discussed. These techniques will be illustrated with the simulation examples as well as the measurements from the existing machines.

        Trigger & Data Acquisition at FCC-hh

        Data acquisition has always been a significant challenge at a hadron collider. The combination of high luminosity and finely segmented detectors yields data rates that far exceed what can be stored permanently. The problem has traditionally been solved using a trigger system, that performs event selection online. In many cases, the trigger system has relied on dedicated detectors, or detectors designed with the trigger in mind. We start by reviewing the state of the art in the field - namely the Phase-2 upgrades planned for ATLAS and CMS. We explore the particular nature of the trigger challenge for FCC-hh, and propose some options for further investigation.

        Electromagnetic calorimeter using LAr technology for FCC

        Requirements and feasibility of the electromagnetic calorimeter (ECAL) in the FCC-hh experiment will be discussed. The ECAL subdetector will have to be able to deal with unprecedented luminosities and very high pile-up. Moreover, very good energy and angular resolution for a wide range of electrons' and photons' momentum is needed in order to meet the demands based on the physics benchmarks.

        Hadron calorimetry at the FCC-hh experiment

        The new energy regime of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) in hadron mode with centre of mass energies up to 100\,TeV opens the opportunity for the discovery of physics beyond the standard model. At 100 TeV a large fraction of the W,Z, H bosons and top quarks are produced with a significant boost. It implies an efficient reconstruction of very high energetic objects decaying hadronically and producing high $p_{T}$ jets in the detector. The reconstruction of those boosted objects is challenging and sets the calorimeter performance requirements in terms of energy resolution, containment of highly energetic hadron showers, and high transversal granularity. \
        We will present the current baseline technologies for the calorimeter system for the barrel region of the FCC-hh baseline detector: a Liquid Argon (LAr) electromagnetic and a Scintillator-Steel (Tile) hadron calorimeter. The talk will focus on the performance studies for hadrons, in terms of single particle and jet reconstruction. We will present the achieved energy resolutions and dependences on the sampling fraction and granularity. Additionally, design considerations will be discussed and we will introduce future plans that includes the application of particle flow algorithms.

        Digital Electromagnetic Calorimetry at the FCC-hh

        The number of particles in an electromagnetic shower is proportional to the incident particle energy. A Digital Electromagnetic Calorimeter (DECAL) is a highly granular device that counts the number of particles in a shower rather than the total energy deposited. An improved energy resolution is possible compared to an analogue calorimeter as this should be less sensitive to Landau fluctuations on single particle energy deposits. Ultra high granularity can be achieved using radiation hard CMOS sensors. Pixels can then be grouped together in cells for which the hit count is then output every beam crossing. Even in today’s technology, sufficient granularity and radiation hardness can be demonstrated to meet the requirements of future experiments. However, a key argument for this approach is that by working with mainstream CMOS imaging sensor suppliers and keeping relatively simple in-pixel logic, it should be possible over a decade timescale to take advantage of the huge size of this market to give an extremely cost-effective solution for a Particle Flow based ECAL suitable for the FCC. At the same time, by making the pixel cells reconfigurable, it is possible to implement outer tracker short strip (“strixel”) layers using identical technology allowing a seamless transition from outer tracking to pre-shower to ECAL.

        We will present the optimisation of a DECAL for the FCC-hh as an alternative technology to the baseline LArPb ECAL within FCCSW. Particular focus will be on single particle resolutions, the impact of pile-up and its reduction, and reconstruction algorithms to extract the detailed shower development information available from such a highly segmented detector. We will also present an overview of a radiation hard CMOS device designed for such a purpose. Finally, if time permits, we will present results on the impact of a DECAL on the physics at the FCC-hh.

        A high granularity hadronic calorimeter for multi TeV jets

        We discuss performance requirements for future hadronic calorimeters in the context of reconstruction of multi-TeV objects (jets, particles) at a 100 TeV collider. For this study, we use a Geant4 simulation of the detector response of the SiFCC detector which is designed to study hadronic jets up to 33 TeV in transverse momentum. We show response and energy resolutions for single particles and hadronic jets in the energy range from 2 GeV to 33 TeV. In addition, we show how changes in lateral cell segmentation can affect jet-shape and jet-substructure variables used for reconstruction of highly boosted jets.

        Cryomagnet logistics and transport

        Logistics is of great importance for the construction, assembly and operation of FCC. During set-up of LHC, logistics already proved to be a key factor. In respect of the size of FCC, logistics is increasing its significance. New concepts, methods and analytics for logistics, supply chain and transport concepts will have a direct impact on the estimation of the feasibility and costs of the FCC.
        It is therefore of high importance to already think about logistics concepts during the planning period for all phases of the project (design/ development, planning, transport, construction, assembly, implementing, operations and maintenance, lifecycle evaluation/ possible rededication). This will include concepts for (over ground) transports, storage, assembly strategies, testing and handling of magnets, vehicle concepts for the underground transportation of magnets, concept for the underground transportation of people and material, a technical feasibility study for tracking solutions and the design and evaluation of a global cryo-magnet transport concept. The possibility to transfer already existing concepts from other domains, like strategies for the sourcing and assembly of complex (mechanical) systems (e.g. semi-knock-down in the automotive industry), is already taken into consideration.
        The presentation will give an overview of the current status of ideas, concepts and possible feedback from logistics to other areas like the magnet design or tunnel layout.

        The cryogenic beam vacuum system work package (WP 4) is developing a technical design concept for the FCC-hh beam screen based on the requirements and constraints that emerge from the arc design and magnets work packages (WP 2 and WP5). Within this framework, a measurement setup was designed with the goal of determining the photodesorpotion yield, synchrotron radiation heat loads and photo electron generation inside the FCC-hh beam screen prototype. Measurements on several beam screen setups, both at cryogenic and room temperature, will be carried out in the ANKA light source, which has a synchrotron radiation spectrum similar to FCC-hh. We present here a status report of the installation of the rst setup at ANKA, together with the results obtained after the conditioning of the installed equipment.

        Fermilab is developing a 15 T Nb3Sn dipole demonstrator for a future very high energy pp collider as a part of the U.S. MDP Plan. The magnet design is based on optimized 60-mm aperture 4-layer shell-type coils and cold iron yoke 600 mm in diameter. The coils are graded between the inner and outer layers to maximize the performance and reduce the cost. Two mechanical structures – one, based on aluminum clamps and a thick stainless steel shell, and another one, based on a thick aluminum shell and a key&bladder assembly method – are being considered for this magnet. Magnet engineering design is complete, coil fabrication and structure procurement are in progress. Magnet design parameters, the work status and plans will be presented and discussed.

        Common coil design update

        The common coil geometry offers a 2-in-1 conductor friendly block coil dipole design based on simple racetrack (mostly flat) coils with large bend radii. Significate progress has been worldwide since FCC2016 in various designs of 50 mm aperture high field 2-in-1 dipoles based on the common coil geometry. These include designs of (a) 16 T dipoles based entirely on Low Temperature Superconductors (LTS) and (b) 20 T dipoles based on High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) in addition to LTS. In particular, the coils have become simpler, stored energies and inductances smaller, field quality has improved and the mechanical structure has been more developed. Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is working and collaborating with other institutions in the United States and worldwide to make this design more suitable for future high energy colliders.

        The work on common coil design at BNL is primarily being performed under the US DOE SBIR/STTR programs with the Particle Beam Lasers, Inc. (PBL). BNL/PBL team is also getting ready to test a pair of HTS coils in the background field of 10 T the Nb3Sn common coil dipole, making it an early test of an HTS/LTS hybrid common coil magnet.

        In addition to providing the status of the common coil design, the experience of operating the BNL Nb3Sn common coil dipole after a decade and the experience of an HTS/LTS hybrid coil test will also be presented.

        Prebooster ring

        The FCC-e+e- injector complex needs to produce and to transport a high-intensity e+/e- beam at a fast repetition rate of about 0.1 Hz for topping up the collider at its collision energy. A basic parameter set exists for all the collider energies, assuming a 10 GeV linac operating with a large number of bunches being accumulated in the existing SPS, which serves as pre-accelerator and damping ring before the bunches are transferred to the high-energy booster. The purpose of this study is to provide the conceptual design of an alternative accelerator ring, replacing the SPS in the present scheme. This ring will have injection energy of around 5 GeV and extraction energy of around 20 GeV. Apart from establishing the basic parameters of the ring, the study work will include the optics design and layout, single particle linear and non-linear dynamics optimization, including magnetic and alignment error tolerances. The study will also contain some basic estimation of collective effects and address the issue of synchrotron radiation handling.

        Booster ring

        The beam lifetime at FCC-ee will be limited to less than one hour, because of radiative Bhaba scattering and beamstrahlung. In order to keep the luminosity on the high level of 10^35 cm^-2s^-1 continuous top-up injection is required. Therefore, besides the collider, that will operate at constant energy, a fast cycling booster synchrotron will be installed in the same tunnel.
        The injection energy to the booster synchrotron will be around 6-20\,GeV. Such small energies together with the large bending radius not only create an ultra-small beam emittances, but also requires very low magnetic fields close to the limit of technical feasibility.
        While the main challenge for the injector chain is the production of the high currents up to 1.45 A for operation at the Z threshold at 45.6 GeV the booster must provide stable beam dynamics for a large range of beam energies in a range from 6 GeV to 175 GeV.
        This paper will focus on the challenges and requirements for the top-up booster design arising from low magnetic fields and collective instabilities and present the status of the lattice design.

        Shape memory alloys for remote connection of beam pipes in radioactive areas

        The ultrahigh-vacuum (UHV) coupling performance of shape memory alloy (SMA) rings was investigated by finite element (FE) simulations and experimental measurements. In particular, the tightening performance of SMA rings, in terms of contact pressure and clamping/unclamping mechanisms, was studied for different values of the initial clearance between ring and vacuum pipe by means of strain gauge (SG) and digital image correlation (DIC) tests. The results have revealed that the contact pressure is not significantly affected by the assembly clearance due to the plateau in the stress-strain response of the material and the thermal dismounting and subsequent re-clamping is obtained by exploiting the two-way shape memory recovery capabilities of the alloy. A design method was proposed that involves the numerical results and a vacuum sealing model. The leak rate measurements, carried out to assess the sealing performance of the couplings, revealed that the constraints for UHV applications could be easily satisfied (leak rate < 10-10 mbar l s-1), which opens the possibility of remotely clamping/unclamping the tight couplers by well-defined changes in their temperature. SMA connectors could be used in high-energy particle accelerators, especially in radioactive areas, where thermally induced mounting and dismounting operations can be activated remotely.

        High field normal conducting massless septa for FCC beam transfer

        For the FCC, challenging requirements are set for the extraction septum magnets. A scaled up LHC-like beam dump system architecture is not attractive in terms of low maximum field, lattice space requirements and power consumption. To address these challenges whilst respecting the requirements for the reliability and availability of the system, a high field massless septum with a target field of 2 T offers several advantages. This paper presents a study of the so-called “Pacman” massless septum design. The field quality, maximum obtainable field, the leak field limits and the effective shielding of the circulating beams are described. The achieved performance is compared to that of an alternative, simpler ironless design with lower field.

        Reflectivity and Photo Yield measurements of technical surfaces.

        "In the Highest Energy Proton Circular Collider ever designed, FCC-hh, a large production of Synchrotron Radiation is expected, which causes significant problems. Thus, it is very important to have an experimental characterization of optical properties of technical surfaces, in particular reflectivity and photo yield. Such material properties are essential ingredients to calculate single- and multi-bunch instabilities, vacuum behaviour, e-cloud instabilities, etc. One of the great experimental challenges for measuring such properties is not only to study them on realistic candidates to be used as accelerator walls, but to study them in conditions as close as possible to the one that will actually occur in the machine. There, SR Wight Light, with increasing (during particle acceleration), critical energy from a few eV to more than 4 keV will impinge on the accelerator walls at grazing angles smaller than 0.1 degree. A systematic experimental campaign has been recently launched, identifying the versatility offered by the At-Wavelength Metrology Station (Optics Beamline and Reflectometer) at BESSY-II in Berlin, as an ideal tool to get realistic experimental values to be used in most relevant simulations. Preliminary data on specular and non-specular reflectivity and photo yield in the UV and XUV range (from 35 eV to 1800 eV) and at grazing angles below 0.5 deg, are indeed very encouraging and will be presented and discussed here.

        IR design

        The Interaction Region (IR) Machine Detector Interface (MDI) for an electron-hadron collider such as the LHeC/FCC-eh combines challenging aspects of both hadron and e+e- colliders. High-field superconducting magnets are needed to provide strong focusing and deflection fields for handling a stiff high-rigidity hadron beam. But we must also protect the electrons from seeing any such large magnetic fields that can lead to excessive synchrotron radiation (synrad) to strike cryogenic components or to cause detector background. In addition to their focusing function, the hadron IR quadrupoles must provide a septum-like function for passing the electron beam and possibly a non-colliding hadron beam (e.g. 3-beam mode). Generating some synrad near the IP is unavoidable due to the LHeC using a beam separation dipole, in contrast to the eRHIC layout that employs a crossing angle scheme. While protection collimators and masks will be used to protect LHeC IR magnets from synrad, HERA-II experience shows that extreme care must be taken in order to ensure acceptable experimental background conditions. We should avoid both direct synrad backscatter albedo from protection devices and beam scattering off of desorbed gasses from hitting sensitive detector components. In this presentation we review LHeC MDI challenges in the context of HERA-II experience and the ongoing eRHIC IR design effort and present some newly developed IR magnet design options to address anticipated LHeC/FCC-eh MDI issues.

        Radiation hard scintillators

        Future circular and linear colliders as well as the Large Hadron Collider in the High-Luminosity era have been imposing unprecedented challenges on the radiation hardness of particle detectors that will be used for specific purposes e.g. forward calorimeters, beam and luminosity monitors.
        We performed research on the radiation-hard active media for such detectors, particularly calorimeters, by exploring intrinsically radiation-hard materials and their mixtures.The initial samples that we probed were thin plates of Polyethylene Naphthalate (PEN) and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and thin sheets of HEM. The previous studies indicate towards promising performance under high radiation conditions. We will report on the necessary process of mixing the PEN and PEN for optimized scintillation and signal timing properties preserving the high radiation resistance.
        Recently we developed a new plastic scintillator material. The scintillation yield of SiX sample was compared to a BGO crystal using a setup with 90Sr source and a Hamamatsu R7525-HA photomutiplier tube (PMT). The SiX was measured to yield roughly 50% better light production compared to the BGO crystal.sample SiX was irradiated at the CERN PS radiation facility with 24 GeV/c protons. The samples received a fluence of 1.2 x 1015 p/cm2 which corresponds to 4 x 105 Gy radiation doses. The comparison of the transmission spectra of SiX sample before and after the irradiation exhibits a loss of roughly 7% light transmission after 4 x 105 Gy proton irradiation.

        Towards a conceptual design for FCC cryogenics

        Following the update of the European strategy in particle physics, CERN has undertaken an international study of possible future circular colliders beyond the LHC. The study considers several options for very high-energy hadron-hadron, electron-positron and hadron-electron colliders.
        From the cryogenics point of view, the most challenging option is the hadron-hadron collider (FCC-hh) for which the conceptual design of the cryogenic system is progressing. The FCC-hh cryogenic system will have to produce up to 120 kW at 1.8 K for the superconducting magnet cooling, 6 MW between 40 and 60 K for the beam-screen and thermal-shield cooling as well as 850 g/s between 40 and 300 K for the HTS current-lead cooling. The corresponding total entropic load represents about 1 MW equivalent at 4.5 K and this cryogenic system will be by far the largest ever designed. In addition, the total mass to be cooled down is about 250’000 t and an innovative cool-down process must be proposed.
        The cryogenic system of the electron-positron collider (FCC-ee) will have to produce up to 184 kW at 4.5 K for the cooling of superconducting RF cavities.
        This paper will present the proposed cryogenic layout and architecture, the cooling principles of the main components, the corresponding cooling schemes, as well as the cryogenic plant arrangement and proposed process cycles. The corresponding required development plan for such challenging cryogenic system will be highlighted.

        The Nelium concept is a novel approach for highly efficient refrigeration in the temperature range from 25 to 65 K, making it a promising candidate for the cooling of the FCC-hh beam screens. The concept uses a cycle with turbo compressors, which have higher efficiencies compared to classical screw compressors. To achieve acceptable capital cost, a mixture of neon and helium is used which reduces the number of compression stages. This presentation shows the general concept, the preliminary design of the components and the influence of the neon content.

        Technical specifications for industry studies on the FCC cryogenic system

        Different scenarios of circular colliders are examined and a 100 TeV hadron collider in a 100 km long tunnel is the baseline of the overall infrastructure for the FCC study. Building such a machine requires the development of large unit-capacity cryogenic infrastructures (50 to 100 kW equivalent at 4.5 K) to cool down superconducting accelerator components. The cooling requirements are challenging with a very large refrigeration capacity up to 3 to 4 times larger than the present state-of-the-art and a non-conventional thermal load distribution with very large synchrotron radiation to the beam screens. An international collaboration team has evaluated these cooling capacity requirements, defined the reference cryogenic architecture and pre-designed the main cryogenic subsystems for such a machine. It is now time to assess industrial solutions for FCC cryoplants and to identify together the innovative technologies which have to be developed and assessed in the coming years to offer greater efficiency and more reliable operation for the FCC. The presentation will recall the state-of-the art for Helium plants and detail the technical specifications for industry studies on the FCC cryogenic system.

        Cryogenic distribution for FCC-hh

        The Future Circular Collider (FCC), with of about 86 km circumference, will be the largest particle accelerator ever constructed. Such a scale entails numerous problems, many of which have never been faced before. One of them is a considerable growth in the length of cryogenic distribution lines. In case of the FCC the maximum length for the distribution line is considered as 8.4 km, what is almost 3 times higher than for presently the longest, LHC distribution lines. During the gas flow through such a long process lines flow pressure drops is an issue. In order to reduce losses caused by pressure drops the process lines sizes or helium pressure must be increased. In case of thermal shield supply and return headers the pressure increase has no influence on the thermal shield cooling process, thus for FCC it is considered to increase the helium pressure from 20 bar, what is currently used in state-of–art transfer lines, to 50 bar. Due to pressure increase mechanical supports and vacuum barriers of the process headers need to be more massive, what will result in higher heat fluxes to the headers.
        The talk presents three design options for the straight section of the FCC cryogenic distribution system. The designs will be compared in view of the heat fluxes to the process header for 20 bar and 50 bar helium pressure in the thermal shield cooling circuit as well as in view the system reliability. Recommendation of the final cryogenic distribution system design will be done.

        One of the options being considered for the FCC-hh high energy injector is a superconducting machine replacing the SPS, so to increase the energy from the current 450 GeV to 1.3 TeV. This synchrotron would operate in a cycled mode also to feed experimental areas, much like the SPS nowadays. Due to this specific cycled operation, innovative design and development approaches will be required to cope with the AC losses in the superconducting cables and reaching the highest possible critical wire and cable critical current. Some of the other design parameters of the model are the following: aperture - 80 mm diameter; the field ramp rate of 0.2 - 0.5 T/s; the wire – NbTi @1.9 K; the total thermal losses less of 2 W/m at 4.2 K equivalent while ramping. The design is started. Possibilities of a single layer cosine (theta) dipole with the yoke at intermediate temperature are analyzing.

        Optics development for HE-LHC

        The High Energy LHC (HE-LHC) proton-proton collider is one of the options being explored in the framework of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) study. The design of the HE-LHC is based on the existing 27-km LHC tunnel with the goal of reaching a centre-of-mass beam energy of about 25 TeV at a peak luminosity of a least 2.5×10^35 (1/cm^2/s). The HE-LHC requires novel dipole magnets, based on Nb3Sn superconductor, with a field of 16 T, about a factor of two higher than for the present LHC dipoles made from Nb-Ti. Such 16 T magnets are also under development for a proposed 100-km 100 TeV collider (“FCC-hh”). A major concern for HE-LHC is the dynamic aperture at injection energy, in view of possibly degraded field quality for the new superconductor, the potentially large energy swing between injection and top energy, and the (slightly) reduced aperture of the magnet cold bore. Another consideration is the required maximum field in quadrupoles, sextupoles and other magnets, for which it may be cost-effective, wherever possible, to stay with Nb-Ti technology. The goal of this study is to design a possible HE-LHC injection lattice that fits the present LHC geometry, provides sufficient dynamic aperture in presence of large non-linear field errors in the dipoles, and minimizes the required field in quadrupoles and sextupoles. The initial design and the results of dynamic aperture calculations with dipole systematic field errors are presented.

        FCC-hh operation schedule and turn-around cycle

        This contribution presents the first version of the FCC-hh operation schedule and updates estimates on collider turn around cycle. The operational schedule shows planned time for physics operations and maintenance during collider life cycle. The schedule meets requirements for time reserved for physics production. However, this considerably limits the time reserved for maintenance and this restraint needs to be taken into account in collider system design. The turn-around cycle time of a collider is defined as the time spent between the end of stable beams and the start of the next stable beams. This time is a crucial ingredient for the computation of the optimal time spent in luminosity production and for the estimates of the collider operational performance. The first estimation of the turn-around time was presented at the FCC week 2016. This contribution updates the estimate based on advances in the FCC-hh study and LHC operation data from 2016.

        FCC availability and integrated luminosity

        The achievable level of availability will be one of the main performance indicators for the next generation of particle accelerators. Studies are ongoing for the FCC to model future operation of the collider based on LHC experience. The software ELMAS is used for modelling system fault trees and simulate the achievable integrated luminosity production as a function of different operational modes and system failure rates. This contribution presents the first estimates of FCC availability and integrated luminosity, comparing two injector options (LHC and superconducting SPS). Recommendations are given on how to define availability ‘budgets’ for accelerator systems, based on the defined integrated luminosity goals.
