Electron cloud generation has been a rising problem in high energy beam chambers such as the LHC. In order to mitigate this problem, we looked for the best beam configuration to scrub the chambers and reduce its secondary electron yield. Using simulations, a five-island beam and a three-island beam were compared against a normal single beam. The five-island beam was found to work best.
