Performance of the Beam Position Monitor System of the Final Focus Test Beam


The Beam Position Monitor (BPM) system for the Final Focus Test Beam (FFTB) at SLAC is designed to meet challenging specifications in the areas of single-pulse resolution, ab initio installation accuracy, and time-stability of BPM electrical centroids. We review the tolerances on these quantities and the technical choices made to achieve same, and detail the results of several studies of the actual performance of the system. These results are then related to the BPM system requirements for a future high-energy e+e- linear collider.

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file most likely created from LaTeX source which used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification (fonts will appear bitmapped, jagged), though the type will be legible at higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the use Type 3 fonts in the original source file, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
