Due to a planned intervention the CERN Document Server website will be read only (no new submission or restricted content) from Tuesday, June 29th at 13:30 CEST to Wednesday, June 30th at 9:30 CEST.
The website will be shortly unavailable at the beginning and at the end of the intervention.

Development of a Thermal Response Model for Wire Grid Profile Monitors and Benchmarking to CERN LINAC4 Experiments / Navarro Fernandez, Araceli (CERN) ; Roncarolo, Federico (CERN) ; Sapinski, Mariusz (TERA, Novara)
The operation of wire grids as beam profile monitors, both in terms of measurement accuracy and wire integrity, can be heavily affected by the thermal response of the wires to the energy deposited by the charged particles. A comprehensive model to describe such interaction has been implemented including beam induced heating, all relevant cooling processes and the various phenomena contributing to the wire signal such as secondary emission and H⁻ electron scattering.

A pulsed high-voltage decelerator system to deliver low-energy antiprotons / Husson, A (IJCLab, Orsay) ; Kim, B H (Seoul Natl. U., Dept. Phys. Astron.) ; Welker, A (CERN) ; Charlton, M (Swansea U.) ; Choi, J J (Seoul Natl. U., Dept. Phys. Astron.) ; Chung, M (UNIST, Ulsan) ; Cladé, P (Paris, Lab. Kastler Brossel) ; Comini, P (IRFU, Saclay) ; Crépin, P -P (Paris, Lab. Kastler Brossel) ; Crivelli, P (Zurich, ETH-CSCS/SCSC) et al.
The GBAR (Gravitational Behavior of Antihydrogen at Rest) experiment at CERN requires efficient deceleration of 100 keV antiprotons provided by the new ELENA synchrotron ring to synthesize antihydrogen. This is accomplished using electrostatic deceleration optics and a drift tube that is designed to switch from -99 kV to ground when the antiproton bunch is inside – essentially a charged particle “elevator” – producing a 1 keV pulse.

Identification of impedance sources responsible for longitudinal beam instabilities in the CERN PS / Lasheen, A (CERN) ; Damerau, H (CERN) ; Favia, G (CERN) ; Kozlowski, P (CERN) ; Popovic, B (CERN)
Longitudinal instabilities in the CERN PS are an important limitation to obtain the expected beam intensity and longitudinal emittance at the PS extraction in the framework of the LHC Injector Upgrade (LIU) project. The observed coupled-bunch instabilities lead to dipolar and quadrupolar oscillations, as well as to an uncontrolled longitudinal emittance blow-up for proton beams. [...]
