Staggering of the HOM Frequencies

The staggering of the HOM frequencies in an RF system reduces the probability that two or more HOM impedances will contribute to the same coupled bunch mode. The staggering is accomplished by varying the cavity dimensions in uniform steps from cavity to cavity. The staggering is expected to vary with HOM type. Staggering steps per cavity are entered as an optional column in the HOM definition file.
