Electron Cloud Simulations In The Fermilab Recycler
We present a simulation study to characterize the stability region of the Fermilab (FNAL) Recycler in the context of secondary emission yield (SEY). Interactions between electrons and beam pipe material can produce electron clouds that jeopardize beam stability in certain focusing configurations. Such an instability was documented in the Recycler, and the work presented here reflects improvements to better understand that finding. We incorporated the Furman-Pivi Model into a PyECLOUD analysis, and we determined the instability threshold given various bunch lengths, intensities, SEY magnitudes, and model parameters.
