Title: THE HIGH-HEAT FLUX TESTING OF AN INTERCEPTIVE DEVICE FOR AN INTENSE PROTON BEAM

An interceptive device referred to here as a scraper has been designed and tested for use in a diagnostic device [1]. The scraper will be used to probe a proton beam in order to detect the formation of beam halo [2]. Probing the proton beam exposes the scraper to high heat fluxes on the order of 610 kW/cm{sup 2}. The high-heat flux exposure is cyclic since the beam is probed while in pulsed mode. In order to test the design repetitive high-heat flux testing has been performed on a prototype design of the scraper. This paper describes the design, analysis, and testing of the scraper.
