Standard closed-orbit techniques for Twiss parameter measurement are not applicable to the open-ended Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at Jefferson Lab. The evolution of selected sets of real orbits in the accelerator models the behavior of a “synthetic” beam. This process should provide the distributed optical information needed to optimize beamline tuning for an open-ended system. This work will discuss the development and current state of this technique, as well as examples of its use in the CEBAF machine.
