  Particle accelerators are thrusting the exploration of beam production towards several demanding territories, that is beam high intensity, high energy, short time and geometry precision or small size. Accelerators have thus more and more stringent characteristics that need to be measured. Beam diagnostics accompany these trends with a diversity of capacities and technologies that can encompass compactness, radiation hardness, low beam perturbation, or fast response and have a crucial role in the validation of the various operation phases. Their developments also call for specialized knowledge, expertise and technical resources. A snapshot from the French CNRS/IN2P3 beam instrumentation network is proposed. It aims to promote exchanges between the experts and facilitate the realization of project within the field. The network and several beam diagnostic technologies will be exposed. It includes developments of system with low beam interaction characteristics such as PEPITES, fast response detector such as the diamond-based by DIAMMONI, highly dedicated BPM for GANIL-SPIRAL2, emittance-meters which deals with high intensity beams and development for MYRRHA, SPIRAL2-DESIR and NEWGAIN.

TH2I2 Longitudinal Beam Diagnostics R&D at GSI-UNILAC 144
  • R. Singh
    GSI, Darmstadt, Germany
  GSI UNILAC provides a wide variety of ion types from energies ranging from 1.4 MeV/u to ~11.5 MeV/u with a large dynamic range in the beam intensities to the experimental users or to the downstream accelerators. This flexibility in beam parameters requires a frequent tuning of the machine parameters for optimal operation of the UNILAC. Therefore, there has been a constant and pressing need for operationally convenient, accurate, fast and potentially non-destructive beam diagnostics for longitudinal charge profile and energy distribution. This contribution discusses the recent progress on longitudinal charge profile distribution measurements at GSI UNILAC. The outcome of recent devices like Fast Faraday cups (FFCs), transition radiation in GHz regime (GTR) is shown in comparison with phase probes or pick-ups. Other past developments aimed at longitudinal diagnostics at UNILAC like single particle detectors and RF deflector type methods are also briefly discussed.
