Abstract

We report the operational experience of the movable emittance meter at SPARC. It is based on the well-known technique of pepper pot measurements (1-D slits in our case) but, in addition, it allows moving the measuring device along the beam line from about 840 mm to 2200 mm from the cathode, following the emittance oscillations. More than a simple improvement over conventional, though non-trivial, beam diagnostic tools this device defines a new strategy for the characterization of high performance photo-injectors, providing a tool for detailed analysis of the beam dynamics, over a section of the accelerator where emittance compensation take place. With this device we planned to perform detailed and systematic studies on beam dynamics with particular attention to the transverse parameters as well as longitudinal.
