Measurement Techniques for Transfer Lines and Beam Instrumentation

Peter Forck


The determination of beam parameters is essential for the operation and development
of any accelerator facility. The working principle of the beam instrumentation
for electron and proton beams with the focus on transfer line
diagnostics and for injection and extraction matching is discussed. This comprises
of the beam instrumentation for beam current determination, beam loss
monitors, methods for transverse profile and emittance diagnostics and the usage
of beam position monitors for bunched beams. Some examples of such
measurements are presented in addition.
