WATCH element and longitudinal data

Post by dpe » 02 May 2012, 03:36

I'm using WATCH element to check the 6D phase space of my bunch tracked along a transfer line.

I noticed that the t and dt columns in watch files contain the same data, am I missing something?

Thank you

The dt and t columns will be different only for multi-pass systems like a storage ring. For a linac, they'll be identical.
