Scope/topics

  • Operating machines with resonant slow extraction

  • Passive diffusers for loss reduction (theoretical and practical experience, design considerations).

  • Coherent crystal channelling for loss reduction (including shadowing, resonant and non-resonant).

  • Other topics for loss reduction (separatrix folding, Hardt condition, dynamic bump).

  • Improved septum technologies and extraction HW improvements (loss reduction, alignment, reliability and reduction of activation).

  • Power convertor stability and performance criteria.

  • Feedbacks and feedforwards (tune, orbit, extraction bump .

  • RF knockout/noise and other diffusion techniques.

  • Beam instrumentation for Slow Extraction (ring and beamlines, DC beams, profile/position/flux...).

  • Radioprotection: activation of accelerator components (monitoring, prediction, improvement).

  • Remote handling / interventions and maintenance planning

  • Beam sharing onto targets: present paradigms, limitations
