Proton Synchrotron Straight section pictures

SS60 PR.SS60 Layout database

On the blue table, horizontal dipole PR.DHZ60. At the right a pneumatic vacuum sector valve. Sextupole PR.XNO60 added in Straight Section 60, as described in PS-MXNBA-EC-0001

SS61 PR.SS61 Layout database

At the left, on the slender blue pedestal, PR.QLD29, a quadrupole doublet magnet. The bright red device at the right is ejection septum magnet SMH61, part of the slow extraction system for the East Hall. In the background, visible between the doublet and the septum, bumper magnet 61.

SS62 PR.SS62 Layout database

An empty straight section.

SS63 PR.SS63 Layout database

At the left, a pick-up belonging to the orbit measurement system (CODD). The white block in the background is a bending dipole magnet steering protons toward the East Hall.

SS64 PR.SS64 Layout database

The box on the blue table is a wire scanner. This instrument measures the vertical beam profile.

SS65 PR.SS65 Layout database

On the white pedestal, a wire scanner. This device serves to determine the beam profile by rapidly moving a fine wire through the beam while measuring the resultant scattering of particles. The scattered particles are detected by a scintillator attached to a photo-multiplier, neither of which are visible here.

SS66 PR.SS66 Layout database

An accelerating radio frequency cavity, part of the 10MHz system. The red top contains the tunable ferrite-loaded cavity, and the blue bottom holds the power amplifier.

SS67 PR.SS67 Layout database

At the left, between the pole pieces of the bending magnet, one of the pick-ups of the orbit measurement system (CODD). The pale white device is a dipole magnet. The rods running parallel to the vacuum chamber serve to compensate a mains induced disturbance of the beam.

SS68 PR.SS68 Layout database

At the left, between the pole pieces of the bending magnet, a phase pick-up serving the beam control system. To its right, a beam position pick-up. On the blue table, a wire scanner.

SS69 PR.SS69 Layout database

The magnet on the blue table is a quadrupole doublet.
