Experiment - 8Pi - Tuning Tips

through the slits & collimator --TA, Feb. 2011 & corrected by JA

1.  Tune the beam to ILE1A:FC1.  Beam at ILE1A:RPM1 should be centered and roughly symmetric (see Figures 1, 2); (RPMs' reference file 2009.12.02.13:41:51.snap, OLIS-->8PI reference tune 091202_1400.snapios8pi [Mike Trinczek]).  For ILE1A:XCB1 through ILE1A:Q10, set quads, benders, and slits to theoretical values and steering to zero-effect.

2.  Open ILE1A:(X/Y)SLIT4A device pages.  Send the beam to ILE1A:FC6.  Aim for 100% Transmission (Tx) while centering the beam on & focusing it through the 5mm slits using ILE1A:XCB1->ILE1A:B4.  Occasionally check ILE1A:RPMs(4/4A) (compare w/ Figures 3, 4) and verify that the profiles roughly match the expected envelope in Figure 1. It is OK to take ILE1A:Q1->ILE1A:Q4, as well as downstream quads, well off of theory. We don't expect those quads to stay right at theory because they are needed to 'match' the beam into 8pi.

3.  Ensure ILE1A:IV8 is open (if not, consult w/ experiment before opening).  Open ILE1A:(X/Y)SLIT8 device pages.  Send the beam to ILE1A:FC10.  Aim for 100% Tx while centering the beam on & focusing it through the 13.2/11mm slits.  Ideally, attempt to achieve this using only devices past ILE1A:(X/Y)SLIT4A.  Occasionally check RPM8 (comparing w/ Figure 5) and verify that the profiles roughly match the expected envelope (Figure 1).

4.  Open ILE1A:COL12D & ILE1A:FC12 device pages.  Confirm w/ experiment that ILE1A:FC12 is installed (removable cup), and that the cable for ILE1A:COL12D is connected (to read collimator current).  Remove all upstream Faraday cups.  Aim for max Tx while minimizing beam on the collimator, ideally using only devices past ILE1A:(X/Y)SLIT8.


5. Save the tune and check the ILE1A:FC12/FC1 Tx.


6.  Revisit all ILE1A optics while watching the current on ILE1A:FC12.  Iterate through them and maximize transmission from ILE1A:FC1 to ILE1A:FC12.  If no improvements are possible, restore the save tune in (5.) above.  If improvements are made, re-save the tune.


7.  Document the tune (RPM'S, snapshot, etc).
