Oral Low Level RF Workshop 2022 Lab Talks


Wolfgang Hofle (CERN)


This talk will review the progress of the LLRF systems at CERN, in particular the LHC Injector upgrade projects with the first introduction of MicroTCA technology in the accelerator field at CERN. The last two years saw the gradual commissioning of these new systems that also include new overall RF systems with solid state amplifiers for the PS Booster Synchrotron and the SPS. The new systems allow advanced beam manipulations such as the slip-stacking of ions in the SPS and simultaneous use of cavities in the PSB at multiple harmonics. Challenges of future projects both for upgrades (LHC) and consolidation will be outlined.
