Title: Secondary Beam Monitors for the NuMI Facility at FNAL

Abstract

The Neutrinos at the Main Injector (NuMI) beam principally supplies high energy neutrinos to the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (MINOS) experiment, which is investigating neutrino oscillations. The NuMI beamline accepts 120 GeV protons from the Fermilab Main Injector and steers them toward a graphite target to produce a secondary meson beam that decays to neutrinos and muons. Due to the constraints placed on beam quality, ionization chamber arrays are developed to measure the primary beam and tertiary charged particles to monitor beam quality, beam direction, and the operational integrity of the upstream beamline components. This thesis describes the research and development of these beam monitors and their demonstrated utility for MINOS and NuMI.
