    SPring-8, a 3rd generation synchrotron light source, has operated since 1997. Improvement of BPM performance is required as a part of upgrading activities of the storage ring as a light source. We have developed new electronics circuits for signal processing of the storage ring BPM, with target...

    Crotch or beamport absorbers deal with the unused power of the synchrotron radiation generated by dipoles in electron storage rings. A tiny fraction of the very hard X-rays fully penetrate the absorber structure and enter the free air space behind it. Both at the ESRF (6GeV) and at ANKA (2.5GeV)...

    Long-term pointing stability requirements at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) are very stringent, at the level of 500 nanoradians peak-to-peak or better over a one-week time frame. Conventional rf beam position monitors (BPMs) close to the insertion device source points are incapable of assuring...
