ESLS XX Workshop - Program
Sunday 18.11.2012
18:00-20:00 Registration and reception at BESSY: Beer, vine, beverages and typical German "Abendbrot".
The registration will be open on Monday and Tuesday mornings and during the coffee breaks.
Monday 19.11.2012
Guided tours through the facilities
8:30-10:00 HoBiCat with the gun test-stand for BerLinPro
  MLS - the experimental hall and performance demonstration -see below
During this time there will be a hands-on demonstration in the control room of some of the features of the MLS. The following tools for manipulating and measuring non-linear alpha buckets will be presented:
1. demonstration of injection and energy ramp
2. short bunch generation through low-alpha operation -> bunch squeezing observation by a streak camera
3. impact of octupoles - on-line determination of all three non-linear chromaticities as a function of the octupole currents
4. generation of non-linear alpha buckets with high beam currents "double beam operation"
5. measurements on simultaneously filled non-linear alpha buckets
Note, due to the space limitations in the small MLS control room participation is limited to six persons only. Please register by sending an email to - participation will be on the first-come-first-served basis.
