Accurately measuring the beam phase is critical when determining the ideal RF cavity parameters for beam acceleration. In the past, only Fast Current Transformers (FCTs) were used to measure the beam phase. However, with the upcoming upgrade of the MEBT section for the CSNS-II project, shorted stripline-type BPMs will now be utilized to measure beam position, phase, and energy. LIBERA...

H- ion source produces mixed beam of H- and electrons. Usually, a bending magnet is needed to measure the contents of mixed beam. However, bending magnet is generally lacked in H- machine, because bending magnet increases the transport line length, leading to more serve decline of H-. How to measure the H- content in mixed beam without the help of bending magnet is worthy to be studied. In...
