Cross-wake force and correlated head-tail instability in beam-beam collisions with a large crossing angle / Kuroo, Nami (KEK, Tsukuba ; Tsukuba U. (main)) ; Ohmi, Kazuhito (KEK, Tsukuba) ; Oide, Katsunobu (KEK, Tsukuba ; CERN) ; Zhou, Demin (KEK, Tsukuba ; CERN) ; Zimmermann, Frank (CERN)
This paper discusses novel coherent beam-beam instability in collisions with a large crossing angle. The instability appears in the correlated head-tail motion of two colliding beams. [...]

Beam measurement of the high frequency impedance sources with long bunches in the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron / Lasheen, A (CERN ; Orsay) ; Argyropoulos, T (CERN) ; Bohl, T (CERN) ; Esteban Müller, J  F (CERN) ; Timko, H (CERN) ; Shaposhnikova, E (CERN)
Microwave instability in the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) at CERN is one of the main limitations to reach the requirements for the High Luminosity-LHC project (increased beam intensity by a factor 2). To identify the impedance source responsible of the instability, beam measurements were carried out to probe the SPS impedance. [...]

Proton beam induced dynamics of tungsten granules / Caretta, O (Rutherford) ; Loveridge, P (Rutherford) ; O'Dell, J (Rutherford) ; Davenne, T (Rutherford) ; Fitton, M (Rutherford) ; Atherton, A (Rutherford) ; Densham, C (Rutherford) ; Charitonidis, N (CERN) ; Efthymiopoulos, I (CERN) ; Fabich, A (CERN) et al.
This paper reports the results from single-pulse experiments of a 440  GeV/$c$ proton beam interacting with granular tungsten samples in both vacuum and helium environments. Remote high-speed photography and laser Doppler vibrometry were used to observe the effect of the beam on the sample grains. [...]

Experimental Observation of “Shadowing” in Optical Transition Radiation / Kieffer, R (CERN) ; Bergamaschi, M (CERN ; Royal Holloway, U. of London) ; Bravin, E (CERN) ; Farabolini, W (CERN) ; Karataev, P (Royal Holloway, U. of London) ; Lefevre, T (CERN) ; Mazzoni, S (CERN)
We report the observation of shadowing between two optical transition radiation (OTR) sources from a 205 MeV electron beam. The total optical intensity is measured as a function of the distance $d$ between the sources, covering the range $0 \lt d \lt 4L_{\nu}$, where $L_{\nu}$ is the formation length of the particles.
