      The paper presents the measurement, analysis and correction of closed orbit distortion (COD) in Indus-2 at 550 MeV injection energy and 2 GeV synchrotron radiation user run energy. The measured COD was analysed and fitted to understand major sources of errors in terms of the effective quadrupole misalignments. The rms COD was corrected down to less than 0.6 mm in both horizontal and vertical planes. A golden orbit was set for the operating synchrotron radiation beamlines. With COD correction, the injection efficiency at 550 MeV was improved by $\sim 50$% and the beam lifetime at 2 GeV was increased by $\sim8$ h. In this paper, the method of global COD correction based on singular value decomposition (SVD) of the orbit response matrix is described. Results for the COD correction in both horizontal and vertical planes at 550 MeV injection energy and at 2 GeV synchrotron radiation user run energy are discussed.

      Electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) plasma was produced at 2.45 GHz using 200 – 750 W microwave power. The plasma was produced from argon gas at a pressure of $2 \times 10^{−4}$ mbar. Three water-cooled solenoid coils were used to satisfy the ECR resonant conditions inside the plasma chamber. The basic parameters of plasma, such as electron density, electron temperature, floating potential, and plasma potential, were evaluated using the current–voltage curve using a Langmuir probe. The effect of microwave power coupling to the plasma was studied by varying the microwave power. It was observed that the optimum coupling to the plasma was obtained for $\sim$ 600 W microwave power with an average electron density of $\sim 6 \times 10^{11}$ cm$^{−3}$ and average electron temperature of $\sim$ 9 eV.
