First measurement of traverse beam optics for the Fermilab Muon Campus using a magnet scanning technique
In the following years the Fermilab Muon Campus will deliver highly polarized muon beams to the storage ring of the Muon g-2 Experiment. The transmission fraction of the storage ring has been shown to depend strongly on the transverse optics of the injected beam. Unfortunately, the current diagnostics in the Muon Campus allow only measurement of the beam configuration space which limits how well propagation can be predicted. This paper demonstrates an experimental technique based on a conventional magnet scan to obtain the Twiss parameters at a point, using only beam profiles such that installation of new equipment is not required. A proof-of-principle experiment is presented which shows that this new method is applicable to the Muon Campus, offering a viable approach to optimization of injection in the Muon g-2 Experiment.
