Operation Terminology

Schottky (pickup, signal, bands):

Schottky pickups are beam detectors, like BPMs, that are tuned to be sensitive to the revolution frequency of the circulating beam as well as the revolution frequency harmonics. If the signal from a Schottky pickup is looked at via a spectrum analyzer, the momentum spread and tunes can be measured by looking at the width of the Schottky bands and by looking at the amplitude of the revolution harmonic sidebands.
