Longitudinal beam quality monitoring
Reliable monitoring of the longitudinal beam quality is essential for a safe and effcient operation of any high intensity accelerator. The definition of beam quality criteria vary from one machine to the other, depending on the beam and machine parameters. In this paper, the most commonly used concepts of longitudinal beam quality monitoring are addressed with emphasis given on the applications in the circular accelerators at CERN.
