Title: Linear Collider Diagnostics

Abstract

Each major step toward higher energy particle accelerators relies on new technology. Linear colliders require beams of unprecedented brightness and stability. Instrumentation and control technology is the single most critical tool that enables linear colliders to extend the energy reach. In this paper the authors focus on the most challenging aspects of linear collider instrumentation systems. In the Next Linear Collider (NLC), high brightness multibunch e{sup +}/e{sup {minus}} beams, with I{sub {+-}} = 10{sup 12} particles/pulse and sigma{sub x,y} {approximately} 50 x 5 mu-m, originate in damping rings and are subsequently accelerated to several hundred GeV in 2 X-band 11,424 MHz linacs from which they emerge with typical sigma{sub x,y} {approximately} 7 x 1 mu-m. Following a high power collimation section the e{sup +}/e{sup {minus}} beams are focused to sigma{sub x,y} {approximately} 300 x 5 nm at the interaction point. In this paper they review the beam intensity, position and profile monitors (x,y,z), mechanical vibration sensing and stabilization systems, long baseline RF distribution systems and beam collimation hardware.
