Limiting factor for tube dimensions in beam delivery system

In summary, a group at a university is designing a linac to find the Higgs Boson. One member has a question about the limiting factor for the tube/tunnel and is seeking guidance and knowledge on the effects of wall thickness and wakefields on beam dynamics. They mention that the project has not been successful so far.

I am currently part of a group (University) working on a project that is focused on designing a linac to find the Higgs Boson.

I have a question about the the limiting factor for the tube/tunnel.

Currently we have two considerations:
1) The thickness of the walls required to maintain the vacuum.

2) Wakefields and as such the distance that the walls would need to be away from the beam in order to reduce the effect of inducing a current in the walls, emittance growth etc.

I am looking for some guidance and knowledge in the area as I am struggling to make any headway.

Thanks for any help that you can provide.

Accelerator design is complicated, and you can't reduce it to single parameters like this. The beam diameter depends on the position and energy, you have to know the emittance targets and so on.
There are various publications about beam dynamics.

That didn't work out, I guess.
 

What is a limiting factor for tube dimensions in a beam delivery system?

A limiting factor for tube dimensions in a beam delivery system is the maximum size of the tubes that can be used in the system without negatively affecting the overall performance and efficiency.

Why is it important to consider the limiting factor for tube dimensions in a beam delivery system?

It is important to consider the limiting factor for tube dimensions in a beam delivery system because it directly impacts the quality and accuracy of the delivered beam. Using tubes that are too large or too small can result in a decrease in beam intensity, divergence, and beam profile.

What are some common examples of limiting factors for tube dimensions in a beam delivery system?

Some common examples of limiting factors for tube dimensions in a beam delivery system include the size and shape of the beam source, the type of beam delivery optics used, and the desired beam characteristics.

How can the limiting factor for tube dimensions be determined in a beam delivery system?

The limiting factor for tube dimensions can be determined through careful analysis and testing of the beam delivery system. This involves considering the overall beam requirements and choosing tubes that can meet those requirements without exceeding the limiting factor.

What are some potential consequences of not considering the limiting factor for tube dimensions in a beam delivery system?

Not considering the limiting factor for tube dimensions in a beam delivery system can result in a decrease in beam quality and accuracy, which can negatively impact the performance of the system. It can also lead to increased costs and delays in the delivery of the beam.
