Title: Mirascope Luminescent Beam Profile Monitor

Abstract

Advanced beam diagnostics are essential for reliable operation of high-performance accelerators and the intense beams produced by them. Non-invasive diagnostics can be used continuously with intense beams, while invasive techniques interfere with the beams and distort the beam profiles. In addition, traditional solid-based beam monitoring instrumentation produces unacceptable levels of radiation operating in high power beam environments. Noninvasive determination of accelerated particle distributions and profiles is the most difficult task of bunch diagnostics. Muons, Inc. proposed to develop non-interfering residual-gas beam profile monitors for transfer lines with pulse-to-pulse precision of better than 0.1 mm in position and size that will operate over a wide range of proton beam intensities including those needed for multi-MW beams of future facilities. The approach was to develop a low mass residual-gas profile monitor, where beam induced fluorescence (BIF) will be used to monitor the beam profile. An original scheme of light collection using a mirascope, an optical device invented in the 16th century, is proposed. The gas composition and pressure in the beam pipe are locally controlled to minimize unwanted radiation and to improve resolution.
