Etude des vibrations et de la stabilisation à l'échelle sous-nanométrique des doublets finaux d'un collisionneur linéaire

Abstract : CLIC is one of the current projects of high energy linear colliders. Vertical beam sizes of 0.7nm at the time of the collision and fast ground motion of a few nanometres impose an active stabilization of the final doublets at a fifth of nanometre above 4Hz.
The majority of my work concerned vibrations and active stabilization study of cantilever and slim beams in order to be representative of the final doublets of CLIC.
In a first part, measured performances of different types of vibration sensors associated to an appropriate instrumentation showed that accurate measurements of ground motion are possible from 0.1Hz up to 2000Hz on a quiet site. Also, electrochemical sensors answering a priori the specifications of CLIC can be incorporated in the active stabilization at a fifth of nanometre.
In a second part, an experimental and numerical study of beam vibrations enabled to validate the efficiency of the numerical prediction incorporated then in the simulation of the active stabilization. Also, a study of the impact of ground motion and of acoustic noise on beam vibrations showed that an active stabilization is necessary at least up to 1000Hz.
In a third part, results on the active stabilization of a beam at its two first resonances are shown down to amplitudes of a tenth of nanometre above 4Hz by using in parallel a commercial system performing passive and active stabilization of the clamping.
The last part is related to a study of a support for the final doublets of a linear collider prototype in phase of finalization, the ATF2 prototype. This work showed that relative motion between this support and the ground is below imposed tolerances (6nm above 0.1Hz) with appropriate boundary conditions.
