A study on the proton beam energy measurement and diagnosis

Technical Report:

Abstract

The main purpose of this project is the measurement of proton beam energy of extraction at RF 25.89 MHz from MC-50 cyclotron, SF type and constructed by Scantronix Co.. Our beam facility can accelerate not only proton, deuteron, helium-3, and alpha particles but also variable energies of each particles. There are three kinds of beam energy measurement method. One of them is the measurement using by magnet (dipole), which is generally used. But our experimental environment give some problems of space for magnet installation and budget. Another method is the measurement by beam stopping range. If the range is measured, then we can reduce the beam energy from measuring range by refering other experimental data and theoretically calculated data. But resolution of this method is poor in general. So the last method is well fit for our case. This method is E-{Delta}E coincidence measurement. Our detection system is consist of NaI (Tl) for energy measurement of scattered beam from target, and thin plastic sintillation detector for {Delta}E measurement. Such method gives us the possibilities of particle identification and rejection of gamma background caused by NaI detector. And the reason of using NaI, sensitive gamma rays, is the good linearity of  More>>

And the reason of using NaI, sensitive gamma rays, is the good linearity of proton beam energy, from 30 MeV to 60 MeV, and light yield of detector, which reported by Romero et al.. We want to give some emphasis on CAMAC data-acquisition system used for two-dimensional data-taking system on real time. Such two dimensional data are required on the identification analysis of scattered particles and selection of proton efficiently.}
