Comissioning of upgraded VEPP-2000 injection chain
Copyright © 2016 CC-BY-3.0 and by the respective authors. The upgrade of VEPP-2000 e + e - collider injection chain includes the connection to BINP Injection Complex (IC) via newly constructed transfer line K-500 as well as upgrade of the booster synchrotron BEP to the energy of 1 GeV. Modernization has started in the middle of 2013 and now the electron and positron beams with highly increased production rate together with top-up injection from BEP are ready to feed VEPP-2000 ring and provide design luminosity at the whole energy range limited only by beam-beam effects. The design and operation experience of IC damping ring, 250 m transfer channel and booster BEP dealing with 2.6 T magnets at top energy will be presented.
