Workshop on Ground Motion in Future Accelerators
A workshop was held at SLAC that was devoted to ground motion and its effects on future accelerators. Ground motion and vibration can be a limiting effect in synchrotron light sources, hadron circular colliders, and electron/positron linear colliders.
Over the last several years, there has been significant progress in the understanding of the ground motion and its effects, however, there are still many problems and questions which need to be resolved including measurement techniques, classification of the motion, and modeling its effect on the accelerator.
A dedicated Workshop was useful to collect the data, resolve outstanding issues, sharpen the contradictions, and outline further studies.
The Workshop was primarily focused on the following problems:
- Measurements of ground motion: methods, accuracy, interpretation, ongoing and suggested experiments.
- Interpretation and classification of ground motion: fast/slow, diffusive/systematic, etc.
- Modeling ground motion, methods to evaluate accelerator performance in terms of ground motion.
- Beam independent methods to cure ground motion effects, including passive damping, inertial stabilization, interferometry for stabilization, etc.
- Tunnel construction techniques and their influence on ground motion problems.
