Title: Large aperture vibrating wire monitor with two mechanically coupled wires for beam halo measurements

Abstract

Development of a new type of Vibrating Wire Monitor (VWM), which has two mechanically coupled wires (vibrating and target), is presented. The new monitor has a much larger aperture size than the previous model of the VWM, and thus allows us to measure transverse beam halos more effectively. A prototype of such a large aperture VWM with a target wire length of 60 mm was designed, manufactured, and bench-tested. Initial beam measurements have been performed at the Fermilab High Intensity Neutrino Source (HINS) facility, and key results are presented.
