Blinky-Lite Mode 0 beam stabilization system

increases beam brightness at MaxIV Synchrotron Light Source

3 GeV Beam operations at maximum intensity has just resumed at MaxIV for 2024. The mode 0 beam stabilization system has been key to achieving the MaxIV beam brightness. Without the system, MaxIV would only be able operate at 25% of its current operating intensity. The Mode 0 beam stabilization system is based on the Red Pitaya StemLab125-14 RF signal acquisition and generation platform integrated into the Blinky-Lite framework resulting in a compact, low-cost but robust system. The Red Pitaya Mode 0 system has been operating for over a year without causing any down-time to the accelerator.
