Abstract

Transverse head-tail instability is a major limitation for the single-bunch beam current in circular accelerators. Beam-based feedback is one of the potential tools to suppress this type of instability. The feedback systems (transverse dampers) provide active suppression of the beam oscillations by electromagnetic fields, the amplitude of which is calculated in real time from the measured beam position. The effciency of the transverse dampers in combination with various chromaticity settings is discussed.
