4D Emittance Measurements Using Multiple Wire and Waist Scan Methods in the ATF Extraction Line.

Abstract : Emittance measurements performed in the diagnostic section of the ATF extraction line since 1998 lead to ver- tical emittances three times larger than the expected ones, with a strong dependence on intensity. An experimental program is pursued to investigate potential sources of emit- tance growth and find possible remedies. This requires ef- ficient and reliable emittance measurement techniques. In the past, several phase-space reconstruction methods devel- oped at SLAC and KEK have been used to estimate the ver- tical emittance, based on multiple location beam size mea- surements and dedicated quadrupole scans. These methods have been shown to be very sensitive to measurement er- rors and other fluctuations in the beam conditions. In this context new emittance measurements have been performed revisiting these methods and newly developed ones with a systematic approach to compare and characterise their per- formance in the ATF extraction line.
