Beam Diagnostics for Ultra-low Emittance Storage Rings

by Volker Schlott (PSI - Paul Scherrer Institut)





Multi-bend achromat (MBA) lattices have enabled the realization of ultra-low emittance storage rings as diffraction-limited synchrotron radiation sources providing much higher photon brilliance and coherence in the wavelength range of hard x-rays than third generation user facilities. While advances in technology and continuous upgrading of state-of-the-art diagnostics systems have already led to outstanding performance levels of beam instrumentation at present light sources, more stringent demands on beam stability and control induce a number of technical improvements and stimulate advanced concepts of combining electron and photon beam-based signals. Based on diagnostics requirements for diffraction-limited light sources, this talk will give an overview of new electron and photon beam instrumentation developments and highlight beam stabilization concepts aiming for the exploitation of the full capacity of fourth generation synchrotron radiation user facilities.
