  Wire scanners are robust devices for beam characterization in accelerator facilities. However, prolonged usage with intense particle beams leads to wire damage, requiring replacement and beam diagnostic downtime. The fast, robust wire scanner was recently designed and engineered with swappable and modular wire cards, that can accommodate different wire materials under tension. Testing is currently underway at the Jefferson Laboratory (JLab) Low Energy Recirculating Facility. During the course of the diagnostic development and commissioning, we will test Tungsten, Carbon, and boron-nitride nanotube in wire form. The latter is particularly relevant as early results on the material show that it has very high thermal thresholds and may withstand the high-power of the beam during regular operations. This paper will report on the system design and engineering, and preliminary results with operation on the beamline.

Beam setup at the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) involves threading beam through the machine, monitoring global transfer functions to identify and address cumulative lattice errors. Transverse beam emittance may grow by as much as two orders of magnitude, mediated by synchrotron radiation. Re-matching the enlarged beam phase space into successive re-circulation arcs minimizes this emittance growth but requires knowledge of the actual beam distribution. This is now accomplished through quadrupole scans using wire profile monitors, the most time-consuming activity in our setup process. We propose to use Synchrotron Light Monitors (SLMs) to image the beam at homologous points in the four super-period recirculation arc lattices. Benefits include real-time monitoring of beam parameters and reduced elapsed time for initial setup. These SLMs will be installed in Arc 7 of the CEBAF machine, where Synchrotron Radiation contributes moderately to emittance growth. One of four required SLMs will be installed and commissioned this year, with the rest being installed next year.
