Abstract:
A novel solution for a primary collimator for fast-cycling synchrotrons is proposed. A similar device, a so-called Beam Whacker that uses a motor from a personal computer hard drive, is now employed to measure the beam size and deduce the emittance in the Fermilab Booster. The name is derived from its passing resemblance to a Weed Whacker[1] a device for cutting weeds in a garden. The present proposal illustrates the basic principle of a rotating Beam Whacker collimator.
