  It is clear from numerous recent community reports, papers, and proposals that machine learning is of tremendous interest for particle accelerator applications. The quickly evolving landscape continues to grow in both the breadth and depth of applications including physics modeling, anomaly detection, controls, diagnostics, and analysis. Consequently, laboratories, universities, and companies across the globe have established dedicated machine learning (ML) and data-science efforts aiming to make use of these new state-of-the-art tools. The current funding environment in the U.S. is structured in a way that supports specific application spaces rather than larger collaboration on community software. Here, we discuss the existing collaboration bottlenecks and how a shift in the funding environment, and how we develop collaborative tools, can help fuel the next wave of ML advancements for particle accelerators.

X-ray beamlines transport synchrotron radiation from the magnetic source to the sample at a synchrotron light source. Alignment of elements such as mirrors and gratings are often done manually and can be quite time consuming. The use of photon beam models during operations is not common in the same way that they are used to great benefit for particle beams in accelerators. Linear and non-linear optics including the effects of coherence may be computed from source properties and augmented with measurements. In collaboration with NSLS-II, we are developing software tools and methods to include the model of the x-ray beam as it passes on its way to the sample. We are integrating the Blue-Sky beamline control toolkit with the Sirepo interface to several x-ray optics codes. Further, we are developing a simplified linear optics approach based on a Gauss-Schell model and linear canonical transforms as well as developing Machine Learning models for use directly from diagnostics data. We present progress on applying these ideas on NSLS-II beamlines and give a future outlook on this rather large and open domain for technological development.

  Join us for an afternoon intensive with the Sirepo CAE & Design platform! Experts will present their work and lead tutorials using Sirepo’s apps and tools for magnet design, ML techniques in control systems, and X-ray beamline modeling. Bring your own laptop and pre-register to use the free gateway at for practical exercises. Dr. Edelen will provide a tutorial on how to design dipoles and undulators using parameterized magnets. Dr. Roussel will demonstrate combining the classical Preisach model of hysteresis with ML techniques to efficiently create non-parametric, high-fidelity models of arbitrary systems exhibiting hysteresis. Also shown will be how using these joint hysteresis-beam models allows users to overcome optimization performance limitations when hysteresis effects are ignored. Dr. Nash will review the capabilities of Shadow and SRW within Sirepo, discuss additional optics tools in the interface including brightness and linear optics, demonstrate translation between the two codes, and show how to continue your simulation work in a python based Jupyter notebook.
