Mathias, what a great idea. I can think of so many ways to use that type of information. Parameters could then be archived, monitored.  Build the lattice and model right into the control system.

Learned Friends,

Accelerators and beamlines have associated with them some properties of the accelerated particles.

For example, a beamline will usually have a parameter for magnetic and/or electrostatic rigidity, but it might also have beam variables associated with it, such as the charge-to-mass ratio, or the precise mass of a heavy ion.

My question is this:  To what extent are the physics parameters part of the controls?  

Should there be channels like "Separator:BeamMass," for example? 

My feeling is that the beam, as it were, should be part of the control system from the beginning, but I don't have much to back this up.
What do you think? 

Cheers,
             -Mathias
