First Tests of the New LHC K-Modulation Tool in the SPS — •Maria Kuhn — CERN, Geneva, Switzerland — Hamburg University, Hamburg, Germany
Several measurement techniques for optics functions have been developed for the LHC. This presentation discusses the first results with a new k-modulation measurement tool. A fully automatic and online measurement system has been developed for the LHC. It takes constraints of various systems such as tune measurement precision and powering limits of the LHC superconducting circuits into account. K-modulation with sinusoidal excitation will also be possible. First tests of the new application in the SPS will be presented and an outlook on the achievable beta function accuracy will be given.
