Abstract

Micro-bunch instabilities (MBI) have been detected at many light sources across the world. The bursts produced as a result of this instability occur in the millimetre regime. More needs to be determined about the dynamics of MBI in order to confirm the simulations. Consequently, a single shot spectrometer has been created to investigate this instability at Diamond Light Source (DLS). Due to their low noise, ultra-fast response and excellent sensitivity, Schottky detector diodes make up this spectrometer. Currently, seven Schottky detectors are in place covering a range of 33-750 GHz. Unlike previous measurements carried out, each of the Schottky detectors has been characterised thus making the results obtained comparable to simulations. In this paper, we present the assessment of each Schottky detector in the spectrometer; the first results of the spectrometer's use in the beam and future plans for the spectrometer.
