Title: Tunable resonant sensing means to sense a particular frequency in a high energy charged particle beam and generate a frequency-domain signal in response

Abstract

A frequency domain sensing system is disclosed for sensing the position of a high energy beam of charged particles traveling within a housing which comprises a plurality of sensing means positioned in the wall of the housing radially around the axis of the beam. Each of the sensing means further comprising a first electrode means of predetermined shape received in a bore in the housing to define a fixed capacitance and inductance means attached to the electrode to provide an inductance for the sensing means which will provide an LC circuit which will resonate at a predetermined frequency known to exist in the beam of charged particles. The sensing means are further provided with tuning means to vary the amount of said inductance to tune the sensing means to the predetermined frequency prior to transmission of the signal to signal detection circuitry.
