Project

General

Profile

Purpose

  • Develop a bunch-by-bunch (for the FAST superconducting electron linac) and turn-by-turn (for the Integrable Optics Test Accelerator) intensity monitor wide dynamic range, from nominal intensities (~ nC/bunch) down to a few pC/bunch (in the linac) or single electrons (in IOTA)
  • Enable scientific experiments in IOTA, e.g., the direct observation of the time structure of radiation emission from a single electron in a storage ring
