Eddy current effects in the SLS Booster

Marc Muñoz - Werner Joho


It is a well know fact that the eddy currents generated in the vacuum chambers of the pulsed dipoles of the booster produce a heating of the vacuum chamber and a time dependent sextupolar field [1]. In this paper, we review the effect of this sextupolar field in the SLS booster, and estimate the strength of the sextupoles used to compensate the chromaticity, and review the differences between the SLS booster lattice and a more traditional one.
