SUPAF05  Polarized Proton Beams From LaserInduced Plasmas  laser, proton, target, plasma  46 


Laserdriven particle acceleration has undergone impressive progress in recent years. Nevertheless, one unexplored issue is how the particle spins are influenced by the huge magnetic fields inherently present in the plasmas. In the framework of the JuSPARC (Jülich ShortPulse Particle and Radiation Center) facility and of the ATHENA consortium, the laserdriven generation of polarized particle beams in combination with the development of advanced target technologies is being pursued. In order to predict the degree of beam polarization from a laserdriven plasma accelerator, particleincell simulations including spin effects have been carried out for the first time. For this purpose, the ThomasBMT equation, describing the spin precession in electromagnetic fields, has been implemented into the VLPL (Virtual Laser Plasma Lab) code. A crucial result of our simulations is that a target containing prepolarized hydrogen nuclei is needed for producing highly polarized relativistic proton beams. For the experimental realization, a polarized HCl gasjet target is under construction the Forschungszentrum Jülich where the degree of hydrogen polarization is measured with a Lambshift polarimeter. The final experiments, aiming at the first observation of a polarized particle beam from lasergenerated plasmas, will be carried out at the 10 PW laser system SULF at SIOM/Shanghai.

MOPLG03  Spin Dynamics in Modern Electron Storage Rings: Computational and Theoretical Aspects  storagering, electron, radiation, synchrotron  127 


Funding: U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of High Energy Physics, Award Number DESC0018008 In this talk we present some numerical and analytical results from our work on the spin polarization in high energy electron storage rings. Our work is based on the initial value problem of what we call the full Bloch equations (FBEs). The solution of the FBEs is the polarization density which is proportional to the spin angular momentum density per particle in phase space and which determines the polarization vector of the bunch. The FBEs take into account spin diffusion effects and spinflip effects due to synchrotron radiation including the SokolovTernov effect and its BaierKatkov generalization. The FBEs were introduced by Derbenev and Kondratenko in 1975 as a generalization of the BaierKatkovStrakhovenko equations from a single orbit to the whole phase space. The FBEs are a system of three uncoupled FokkerPlanck equations plus two coupling terms, i.e., the TBMT term and the BaierKatkov term. Neglecting the spin flip terms in the FBEs one gets what we call the reduced Bloch equations (RBEs). The RBEs are sufficient for computing the depolarization time. The conventional approach of estimating and optimizing the polarization is not based on the FBEs but on the socalled DerbenevKondratenko formulas. However, we believe that the FBEs offer a more complete starting point for very high energy rings like the FCCee and CEPC. The issues for very high energy are: (i) Can one get polarization, (ii) are the DerbenevKondratenko formulas satisfactory at very high energy? If not, what are the theoretical limits of the polarization? Item (ii) will be addressed both numerically and analytically. Our numerical approach has three parts. Firstly we approximate the FBEs analytically using the method of averaging, resulting in FBEs which allow us to use large time steps (without the averaging the time dependent coefficients of the FBEs would necessitate small time steps). The minimum length of the time interval of interest is of the order of the orbital damping time. Seco

MOPAF03  Polarization Lifetime in an Electron Storage Ring, an Ergodic Approach in eRHIC EIC  electron, storagering, simulation, resonance  140 


Funding: Work supported by Brookhaven Science Associates, LLC under Contract No. DEAC0298CH10886 with the U.S. Department of Energy Electron polarization in a storage ring is subject to two very long term effects: SokolovTernov polarization and depolarization by diffusion. This leads to an equilibrium state over a very long time scale, and, simulationwise, is highly CPUtime and memory consuming. Simulations aimed at determining optimal ring storage energy in an electronion collider in this context, are always based on tracking bunches with thousands of particles, and in addition for short time scales in comparison, due to HPC limitations. Based on considerations of ergodicity of electron bunch dynamics in the presence of synchrotron radiation, and on the very slow depolarization aimed at in a collider, tracking a single particle instead is investigated, here. This saves a factor of more than 2 orders of magnitudes in the parameter CPUtime*Memoryallocation, it allows much longer tracking and thus improved accuracy on the evaluation of polarization and time constants. The concept is illustrated with polarization lifetime and equilibrium polarization simulations at the eRHIC electronion collider.

MOPAF04  Spin Dynamics in Modern Electron Storage Rings: Computational Aspects  electron, storagering, radiation, coupling  146 


Funding: This material is based on work supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of High Energy Physics, under Award Number DESC0018008. In this talk we present some numerical results from our work on the spin polarization in high energy electron storage rings. The motivation of our work is to understand spin polarization in very high energy rings like the proposed Future Circular Collider* (FCCee) and Circular Electron Positron Collider** (CEPC). This talk is a supplement to K. Heinemann’s talk and gives further numerical details and results. As discussed in Heinemann’s talk our work is based on the initial value problem of the full Bloch equations*** (FBEs) which in turn determines the polarization vector of the bunch. The FBEs take into account spin diffusion effects and spinflip effects due to synchrotron radiation. The FBEs are a system of three uncoupled FokkerPlanck equations plus coupling terms. Neglecting the spin flip terms in the FBEs one gets the reduced Bloch equations (RBEs) which poses the main computational challenge. Our numerical approach has three parts. Firstly we approximate the FBEs analytically using the method of averaging, resulting in FBEs which allow us to use large time steps (without the averaging the time dependent coefficients of the FBEs would necessitate small time steps). The minimum length of the time interval of interest is of the order of the orbital damping time. Secondly we discretize the averaged FBEs in the phase space variables by applying the pseudospectral method, resulting in a system of linear firstorder ODEs in time. The phase space variables come in d pairs of polar coordinates where d = 1, 2, 3 is the number of degrees of freedom allowing for a ddimensional Fourier expansion. The pseudospectral method is applied by using a Chebychev grid for each radial variable and a uniform Fourier grid for each angle variable. Thirdly we discretize the ODE system by a time stepping scheme. The presence of parabolic terms in the FBEs necessitates implicit time stepping and thus solutions of linear systems of equations.

MOPAF05  Approaches to Optimizing Spin Transmission in Lattice Design  resonance, lattice, optics, emittance  151 


Funding: Work supported by Brookhaven Science Associates, LLC under Contract No. DEAC0298CH10886 with the U.S. Department of Energy. We present our experiences in optimizing the proposed Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) injector for the eRHIC Storage ring and the RHIC 2017 lattice. We have develop python code to drive lattice calculations in MADX which are then used to calculate spin resonances using the DEPOL algorithm. This approach has been used to minimize intrinsic spin resonances during the RCS acceleration cycle while controlling lattice parameters such as dispersion and beta functions. This approach has also been used to construct localized imperfection bumps using a spin response matrix and SVD. This approach has also been used to reduce interfering intrinsic spin resonances during the RHIC acceleration ramp.
