Title: A SCINTILLATION CHAMBER-IMAGE INTENSIFIER BEAM PROFILE DETECTOR

Abstract

A scintillation chamber was mounted on a single stage image intensifier which was lens coupled to an intensifier orthicon in a closed circuit television system. Charged particles entered the ends and travelled down the length of the filaments causing fiashes of light which were amplified and displayed on the monitor kinescope. This system was used as a detector of weak secondary beams from an accelerator with considerable success. It facilitates the setting up, alignment, and focusing of such beams and is quicker and more efficient than other methods. Based on this trial, a system is described which would be suited for use with secondary beams from the Princeton-Pennsylvania Accelerator. (auth)
