Title: Comparison of profile measurements and TRANSPORT beam envelope predictions along the 80-m LANSCE pRad beamline

Abstract

Here in this paper we report a comparison between the simulation of beam phase-space and profile distributions with diagnostic measurements. TRANSPORT, a particle transport code, was used for the prediction of a 800MeV proton beam envelope from the end of the linac to the proton radiography (pRad) facility (a total length of 80 meters). The beam profile was measured at key positions along the beamline using wire scanners and gated CCD camera systems. These measurements were compared to their respective points along the simulated beamline. The predicted beam envelope and measured data correspond within expected errors.
