Abstract

The 1.3 GeV booster synchrotron (BST ring) has been utilized to supply high energy gamma rays for nuclear physics experiments at Research Center for Electron Photon Science, Tohoku University. The photons with around one GeV are produced via bremsstrahlung by an internal target wire. To realize higher duty in the gamma ray generation, it is required that a ramping time for beam acceleration should be short. Thus a dynamical control for steering magnet was introduced to supress COD due to eddy current in a chamber wall. Present operational status and recent progress of beam performance in the BST ring are reported.
