RF multipoles deliverable / Cruz Alaniz, Emilia (University of Liverpool (GB)) ; Papaphilippou, Yannis (CERN) ; Welsch, Carsten Peter (University of Liverpool (GB))
The crab cavities to be installed in the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) aim to provide an increase in luminosity by restoring head-on collisions and therefore reducing the loss of luminosity due to the crossing angle. [...]

Helical beam screen for the Future Circular Collider for hadrons injection kicker magnets / Chmielińska, A (CERN ; Ecole Polytechnique, Lausanne) ; Barnes, M J (CERN)
The Future Circular Collider for hadrons (FCC-hh) is the proposed high-energy frontier particle collider, which is expected to enable proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 100 TeV. The specifications for the FCC-hh injection kicker system are very challenging. [...]

Performance validation of the upgraded PSB Transfer Kicker BT2.KFA20 / Coralejo Feliciano, Luis Miguel (CERN) ; Sermeus, Luc (CERN)
In the framework of the LHC Injector Upgrade (LIU) project [1], the CERN PSB Transfer Kicker KFA20 pulse power generator has been modified, as done for the Transfer Kicker KFA10 pulse power generator, in order to be compatible with the extraction kinetic energy increase of the PSB from 1.4 to 2.0 GeV.

Results from the CERN LINAC4 Longitudinal Bunch Shape Monitor / Tan, Jocelyn (CERN) ; Bellodi, Giulia (CERN) ; Feschenko, Alexander (Moscow, INR) ; Gavrilov, Sergei (Moscow, INR)
The CERN Linac4 has been successfully commissioned to its nominal energy and will provide 160 MeV H⁻ ions for charge-exchange injection into the Proton Synchrotron Booster (PSB) from 2020. A complete set of beam diagnostic devices has been installed along the accelerating structures and the transfer line for safe and efficient operation. [...]

The Installation and Commissioning of the AWAKE Stripline BPM / Liu, Shengli (TRIUMF) ; Dirksen, Paul (TRIUMF) ; Gessner, Spencer (CERN) ; Guillot-Vignot, Franck (CERN) ; Medina, David (CERN) ; Søby, Lars (CERN) ; Verzilov, Victor (TRIUMF)
AWAKE (The Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment at CERN) stripline BPMs are required to measure the position of the single electron bunch to a position resolution of less than 10 µm rms for electron charge of 100 pC to 1 nC. This paper describes the design, installation and commissioning of a such BPM system developed by TRIUMF (Canada). [...]

Adaptive Collimator Design for Future Particle Accelerators / Furness, Thomas (Huddersfield U.) ; Bertarelli, Alessandro (CERN) ; Carra, Federico (CERN) ; Fletcher, Simon (Huddersfield U.) ; Gentini, Luca (CERN) ; Pasquali, Michele (CERN) ; Redaelli, Stefano (CERN) ; Williamson, James (Huddersfield U.)
The function of collimators in the LHC is to control and safely dispose of the halo particles that are produced by unavoidable beam losses from the circulating beam. Even tiny proportions of the 7TeV beam have the stored energy to quench the superconducting magnets or damage parts of the accelerator if left unchecked. [...]

Beam Intensity Monitoring with nA Resolution - the Cryogenic Current Comparator (CCC) / Haider, David (Darmstadt, GSI) ; De Gersem, Herbert (Darmstadt, Tech. Hochsch.) ; Fernandes, Miguel (CERN) ; Forck, Peter (Darmstadt, GSI) ; Golm, Jessica (Unlisted, DE) ; Kurian, Febin (Darmstadt, GSI) ; Marsic, Nicolas (Darmstadt, Tech. Hochsch.) ; Schmelz, Matthias (Inst. Photonic Tech., Jena) ; Schmidl, Frank (Unlisted, DE) ; Schwickert, Marcus (Darmstadt, GSI) et al.
The storage of low current beams as well as the long extraction times from the synchrotrons at FAIR require non-destructive beam intensity monitoring with a current resolution of nanoampere. To fulfill this requirement, the concept of the Cryogenic Current Comparator (CCC), based on the low temperature SQUID, is used to obtain an extremely sensitive beam current transformer. [...]
