1. US Particle Accelerator School The Challenges of a Storage Ring-based Higgs Factory William A. Barletta Director, US Particle Accelerator School Dept. of Physics, MIT Economics Faculty, University of Ljubljana

2. US Particle Accelerator School Caveat emptor This is a zero-order pedagogical look based on basic accelerator physics My numbers are not CERNs numbers, but they are quite close (~5%) For a more precise analysis based on a real lattice design look at arXiv: 1112.2518.pdf by F. Zimmermann and A. Blondel

3. US Particle Accelerator School Scenario: LHC has discovered the Higgs Your HEP friends want to study its properties Monte Carlo studies show that you need ~ 25 K Higgs for a paper that can get the cover of Nature They & their students dont want to be on shift for a lifetime They comes to you, his favorite machine builder We need to build a factory to produce 6000 Higgs per year. Projected costs ( 15 B) all but killed the ILC. Now we know that we dont need 500 GeV. What about something half that energy? You reply, You dont understand about linacs. Half the energy costs you 75% of the original price. Lets try something different - a storage at CERN . After all LEP 2 got up to 209 GeV.

4. US Particle Accelerator School What LEP2 might have seen How can we produce a Higgs with e + e - ? e + e - H They respond, Exactly, but they did not see anything! The cross-section ~ 2 fb. They would have had to run for decades. A muon collider would be ideal. The is 40,000 times larger. True, you reply, be we dont even know if it is possible. Lets go back to storage rings. How much energy do you need?

5. US Particle Accelerator School Dominant reaction channel with sufficient e + + e - ==> Z * ==> H + Z M H + M Z = 125 + 91.2 = 216.2 GeV/c 2 ==> set our CM energy at the peak : ~240 GeV e + e - Z* Z H

6. US Particle Accelerator School Physics facts of life of a Higgs factory Will this fit in the LHC tunnel? Higgs production cross section ~ 220 fb (2.2 x 10 -37 cm 2 ) Peak L = 10 34 cm -1 s -1 ==> < L> ~ 10 33 cm -1 s -1 ~30 fb -1 / year ==> 6600 Higgs / year Total e + e - cross-section is ~ 100 pb (100GeV/E) 2 Will set the luminosity lifetime Oh, and dont use more than 200 MW of electricity We dont have any choice about these numbers

7. US Particle Accelerator School Road map for the analysis How do facts of life affect the peak luminosity First some physics about beam-beam interactions ==> Luminosity as function of I beam and E beam What * is needed? What is the bunch length, z , of the beam? How does rf system give us z What are relevant machine parameters, c , f rev , f rf , synch , etc. But first, what is E/E How synchrotron radiation comes in What is the rf system What sets the beam size at the IP What are life time limitations Conclusions

8. US Particle Accelerator School Storage ring physics: Beam-beam tune shifts Space charge fields at the Interaction Point electrons positrons At the IP space charge cancels; but the currents add ==> the IP is a lens i.e, it adds a gradient error to the lattice, (k space charge s) where (k space charge s) is the kick (spring constant) of the space charge force Therefore the tune shift is For a Gaussian beam, the space charge kick gives s

9. US Particle Accelerator School Effect of tune shift on luminosity The luminosity is Write the area in terms of emittance & at the IR ( * ) For simplicity assume that In that case And

10. US Particle Accelerator School To maximize luminosity, Increase N to the tune shift limit We saw that Or, writing N in terms of the tune shift, Therefore the tune shift limited luminosity is

11. US Particle Accelerator School Tune shift limited luminosity of the collider Linear or Circular Tune shift In practical units for electrons

12. US Particle Accelerator School We can only choose I(A) and *(cm) For the LHC tunnel with f dipole ~ 2/3, curvature ~ 2700 m Remember that Therefore, B max = 0.15 T Per turn, each beam particle loses to synchrotron radiation or 6.54 GeV per turn I beam = 7.5 mA ==> ~100 MW of radiation (2 beams)

13. US Particle Accelerator School CERN management chose I; That leaves * as the only free variable Then Therefore to meet the luminosity goal < * x * y > 1/2 ~ 0.2 cm (10 x smaller than LEP 2) Is this possible? Recall that is the depth of focus at the IP The hourglass effect lowers L For maximum luminosity ==> z ~ * ~ 0.2 cm *

14. US Particle Accelerator School Bunch length, z, is determined by rf & V rf The analysis of longitudinal dynamics gives where c = ( L/L) / ( p/p) If the beam size is ~100 m in most of the ring for electrons to stay within x of the design orbit To know bunch length & c we need to know p/p ~ E/E

15. US Particle Accelerator School Bunch length, z, is determined by E/E For electrons to a good approximation and So ==> E/E .0035 Therefore for electrons to remain near the design orbit (was 1.8 x 10 -4 for LEP2) c = ( L/L) / ( p/p) ~ 8 x 10 -5

16. US Particle Accelerator School The rf-bucket contains E/E in the beam As U o ~ 6.5 GeV, V rf,max > 6.5 GeV + safety margin to contain E/E Some addition analysis where h is the harmonic number (~ C LEP3 / rf ~ 9x10 4 ) The greater the over-voltage, the shorter the bunch

17. US Particle Accelerator School For the Higgs factory The maximum accelerating voltage must exceed 9 GeV Also yields z = 3 mm which is okay for * = 1 mm A more comfortable choice is 11 GeV (its only money) ==> CW superconducting linac for LEP 3 ==> synch Therefore, we need a SCRF linac in 4 pieces Remember that the beam loses ~ 6% of its energy in one turn LEP2 lost 3.4 GeV ~ 3% per turn We need a higher gradient than LEP2; 6 MeV/m is not enough 22 MeV/m ==> 500 m of linac (the same as LEP 2) High gradient ==> f rf > 1GHz ;

18. US Particle Accelerator School For the Higgs factory The maximum accelerating voltage must exceed 9 GeV Also yields z = 3 mm which is okay for * = 1 mm A more comfortable choice is 11 GeV (its only money) ==> CW superconducting linac for LEP 3 This sets the synchronous phase For the next step we need to know the beam size Therefore, we must estimate the natural emittance which is determined by the synchrotron radiation E/E

19. US Particle Accelerator School The minimum horizontal emittance for an achromatic transport y ~ 0.01 x

20. US Particle Accelerator School Because c is so small, we cannot achieve the minimum emittance For estimation purposes we will choose 20 min as the mean of the x & y emittances For the LHC tunnel a maximum practical dipole length is 15 m A triple bend achromat ~ 80 meters long ==> = 2.67x10 -2 ~ 7.6 nm-rad ==> transverse = 2.8 m How many particles are in the bunch? Or how many bunches are in the ring?

21. US Particle Accelerator School We already assumed that the luminosity is at the tune-shift limit We have Or So, N e ~ 1.3 x 10 11 per bunch I beam = 7.5 mA ==> there are only 3 bunches in the ring Linear or Circular Tune shift

22. US Particle Accelerator School Lets return to Space charge fields at the collision point electrons positrons At the IP space charge cancels; currents add ==> strong beam-beam focus => Luminosity enhancement => Very strong synchrotron radiation (beamstrahlung) Beamstrahlung is important in linear colliders What about the beams in LEP-3?

23. US Particle Accelerator School At the collision pointwith L =10 34 I peak = N e /2 z ==> I peak ~ 1.6 kA Therefore, at the beam edge ( ) B = I(A)/5r(cm) = 1.6 MG ! When the beams collide they emit synchrotron radiation (beamstrahlung) But this accumulates over a damping time The rf-bucket must be very large to contain such a big E/E Beamstrahlung limits beam lifetime & energy resolution of events E Beam s (2/J E )* Sqrt (number of turns in damping time) c,Beams 10 GeV

24. US Particle Accelerator School At L =2 x 10 33 * ~ 1.5 cm ==> 9 GeV of linac is okay I peak can be reduced 3 x and The beam size can increase 3 x ==> B sc is reduced ~10 x ==> E Beams ~ 1 GeV This is < 1% of the nominal energy Many fewer electrons will be lost A much easier machine to build and operate

25. US Particle Accelerator School Yokoya has done a more careful analysis Beamstrahlung limited luminosity This implies very large rings, high beam power, and small vertical emittance

26. US Particle Accelerator School Mechanisms limiting beam lifetime Luminosity lifetime Total e + e - cross-section is ~ 100 pb (100GeV/E) 2 Beamstrahlung lifetime Beam-gas scattering & bremsstrahlung Tousheck lifetime And

27. US Particle Accelerator School And there are other problems Remember the Compton scattering of photons up shifts the energy by 4 2 Where are the photons? The beam tube is filled with thermal photons (25 meV) In LEP-3 these photons can be up-shifted as much as 2.4 GeV 2% of beam energy cannot be contained easily We need to put in the Compton cross-section and photon density to find out how rapidly beam is lost E= mc 2 out in

28. US Particle Accelerator School The bottom line: The beam lifetime is 10 minutes We need a powerful injector Implies rapid decay of luminosity as operation shrinks away from tune shift limit ==> we need top-off operation From Zimmermann & Blondel

29. US Particle Accelerator School Conclusions (for L =2 x 10 34 ) LEP3 is a machine at the edge of physics feasibility Beamstrahlung issues require more, detailed study Momentum aperture must be very large 240 GeV is the limit in the LHC tunnel The cost appears to be << a comparable linear collider A very big perturbation of LHC operations Cannot run at the same time as the LHC The LEP3 idea might be a viable alternative as a future HEP project
