 Dynamic Response of Advanced Materials Impacted by Particle Beams: The MultiMat Experiment / Pasquali, M (CERN) ; Bertarelli, A (CERN) ; Accettura, C (CERN ; Milan Polytechnic) ; Berthome, E (CERN) ; Bianchi, L (CERN) ; Bolz, P (Darmstadt, GSI) ; Carra, F (CERN) ; Fichera, C (BIAM, St Paul lez Durance) ; Frankl, M I (CERN) ; Furness, T (Huddersfield U.) et al. The introduction at CERN of new extremely energetic particle accelerators, such as the high-luminosity large hadron collider (HL-LHC) or the proposed future circular collider (FCC), will increase the energy stored in the circulating particle beams by almost a factor of two (from 360 to 680 MJ) and of more than 20 (up to 8500 MJ), respectively. In this scenario, it is paramount to assess the dynamic thermomechanical response of materials presently used, or being developed for future use, in beam intercepting devices (such as collimators, targets, dumps, absorbers, spoilers, windows, etc.) exposed to potentially destructive events caused by the impact of energetic particle beams.

 Commissioning of a beam screen test bench experiment with a future circular hadron collider type synchrotron radiation beam / Gonzalez, L A (CERN ; Frascati) ; Gil-Costa, M (Madrid, CIEMAT ; CERN) ; Baglin, V (CERN) ; Chiggiato, P (CERN) ; Garion, C (CERN) ; Kersevan, R (CERN) ; Casalbuoni, S (KIT, Karlsruhe) ; Huttel, E (KIT, Karlsruhe) ; Bellafont, I (CELLS - ALBA, LLS) ; Perez, F (CELLS - ALBA, LLS) Coping with synchrotron radiation (SR) that originated at superconducting bending magnets is one of the major challenges in the design of the vacuum beam pipes of hadron colliders. In the case of the Future Circular hadron Collider (FCC-hh), similarly as for the LHC, a beam screen, operating at higher temperatures than the cold mass, has been designed in order to preserve the superconducting magnet cold bores from direct synchrotron irradiation.

 Activation experiment at the CERN-EU high-energy Reference Field (CERF) facility to benchmark ActiWiz and FLUKA predictions: A comparison after 30 days of cooling time / Duchemin, Charlotte (CERN) ; Theis, Chris (CERN) ; Vincke, Helmut (CERN) An experiment was carried out in June 2018 at CERN in order to benchmark FLUKA and ActiWiz activation calculations with experimental data. A first set of samples made of Copper, Aluminium, Stainless Steel and Kovar with a well-known elemental composition was irradiated by the direct impact of a mixed hadron beam of the CERF facility with a momentum 120 GeV/c.

 Multiobjective genetic algorithm approach to optimize beam matching and beam transport in high-intensity hadron linacs / Yarmohammadi Satri, M (CERN ; IPM, Tehran) ; Lombardi, A M (CERN) ; Zimmermann, F (CERN) In this article we demonstrate how a multiobjective genetic algorithm, like the nondominated sorting genetic algorithm II (NSGAII), and a selection tool, like the technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS), can be employed for beam matching and for optimizing the beam transport in the low and medium energy section of a modern hadron linac including space charge effect. Combining NSGAII with the particle tracking code TRAVEL v4.07, we determine the Pareto optimal front, and then apply TOPSIS for the final selection using the example of the 160 MeV H$^−$ LINAC4 at CERN.

 Channeling and volume reflection of high-energy charged particles in short bent crystals. Crystal assisted collimation of the accelerator beam halo / Scandale, W (CERN) ; Taratin, A M (Dubna, JINR) The experimental studies of high-energy charged particle deflection due to planar and axial channeling as well as volume reflection and multi volume reflections in short bent crystals at the extracted beams of the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) are considered. The experiments on the studies of crystal assisted collimation of the CERN SPS beam halo and the first similar experiment with the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) beam of 6500 GeV/c protons are also considered.. 2019 - 107 p. - Published in : Phys.

 Automatic spike detection in beam loss signals for LHC collimator alignment / Azzopardi, Gabriella (U. Malta ; CERN) ; Valentino, Gianluca (U. Malta) ; Muscat, Adrian (U. Malta) ; Salvachua, Belen (CERN) A collimation system is installed in the Large Hadron Collider to protect its super-conducting magnets and sensitive equipment from potentially dangerous beam halo particles. The collimator settings are determined following an alignment procedure, whereby collimator jaws are moved towards the beam until a suitable spike pattern, consisting of a sharp rise followed by a slow decay, is observed in nearby beam loss monitors.

 Suppression of amplitude dependent closest tune approach and its behavior under forced oscillations / Persson, T (CERN) ; Tomás, R (CERN) ; Maclean, E H (CERN) An amplitude dependent closest tune approach (ADeCTA) was first observed in the LHC in 2012. This potentially harmful effect can be generated by linear coupling in conjunction with octupoles. [...] 2019 - 6 p. - Published in : Phys. Rev. Accel.

 A novel quench detection technique for superconducting power cables / Montenero, G (CERN ; PSI, Villigen) ; Ballarino, A (CERN) A novel quench detection technique for superconducting power cables is proposed. The basic idea relies on the concept of probing a resistance build up through the injection of a small current in parallel to the operating cable. [...] 2019 - 12 p. - Published in : Supercond. Sci.

 Effect of resin impregnation on the transverse pressure dependence of the critical current in ReBCO Roebel cables / Gao, P (Twente U., Enschede ; Southwest Jiaotong U.) ; Wessel, W A J (Twente U., Enschede) ; Dhallé, M (Twente U., Enschede) ; Otten, S (KIT, Karlsruhe) ; Kario, A (KIT, Karlsruhe) ; Van Nugteren, J (Twente U., Enschede ; CERN) ; Kirby, G (CERN) ; Bottura, L (CERN) ; ten Kate, H H J (CERN ; Twente U., Enschede) ReBCO Roebel cables are being developed as one of the promising routes towards much higher-field magnets for future particle accelerators. The Lorentz forces generated in such magnets lead to sizeable transverse pressure on the superconducting cables, in the present 15–20 T magnet designs of the order of 100–150 MPa.

 KlyC: 1.5-D large-signal simulation code for klystrons / Cai, Jinchi (CERN) ; Syratchev, Igor (CERN) The High Efficiency International Klystron Activity (HEIKA) was initiated at CERN in 2014 to evaluate and develop new klystron bunching technologies for high-efficiency klystrons in application to the large-scale scientific projects such as the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) and the Future Circular Collider (FCC). The success of such development strongly depends on the availability of the specialized klystron computer codes. [...] 2019 - 8 p. - Published in : IEEE Trans. Plasma Sci. 47 (2019) 1734-1741
