  The European Spallation Source (ESS) will be a 5 MW pulsed neutron source, relying on a 2 GeV linac delivering 2.86 ms long pulses with 14 Hz repetition rate. During the commissioning and the tuning phases of the ESS linac, four Faraday Cups (FC) serve as beam dumps and provide an absolute measurement of the proton beam current. This contribution summarizes the challenges in the design and production of all the FCs mainly requiring: - Thermo-mechanical analysis to keep heat load and mechanical stress below the mechanical limits; - Inclusion of an electron repeller to prevent the escape of secondary charged particles from the cup that would limit the accuracy of the current measurements; - Monte Carlo simulations to compute material activation, dose at contact and corresponding necessary shielding; - Design of high-resolution detection circuits for low current to fulfill the requirements on bandwidth, gain and noise. In addition, the performance of the LEBT FC during the commissioning of the ion source and LEBT is reported. The LEBT FC system is under continuous improvement and serves as benchmark for the protection from unwanted operation, and in case of actuator or cooling faults.

  A fast single-shot emittance measurement device, a pepper-pot emittance meter, was developed. In the manufacturing stage, in order to guarantee the quality of the holes in the pepper-pot mask, we fabricated two mask using different methods that are made of phosphor bronze by optical lithography process and SUS by laser cutting. After the comparison of each SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) measurement data, the phosphor bronze mask fabricated by lithography was found to be suitable. The rotation and translation matrices are applied on all images obtained by the camera to mitigate the relative angular misalignment errors between MCP, mirror and CMOS camera with respect to the mask. By applying the instrument in the NFRI ion source, the four-dimensional phase-space distribution of ion beams is retrieved and compared with the result measured by using a slit-scan method. In this paper, we describe the fabrication process, data analysis method and beam measurement results of the developed emittance meter.

  In the Low Energy Beam Transport (LEBT) of the European Spallation Source (ESS) Linac, a specific Non-invasive Profile Monitor (NPM) has been designed to primarily monitor beam position monitor with 100 µm accuracy, and in addition enable beam profile and size measurement. We present the first measurement results using NPM during the commissioning of the LEBT. The measurement results conclude the beam position as well as the angle of the beam. The performance of the measurement is discussed and compared to the required accuracy for the position measurement. In addition, the profile of the beam along the propagation axis is reported, as measured for part or the full pulse transported in the LEBT. The fidelity of the reported profile will be discussed as function of the system sensitivity and image signal to noise ratio.

  The European Spallation Source (ESS), currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, will be the world’s most powerful linear accelerator driving a neutron spallation source, with an average power of 5 MW at 2.0 GeV. The first protons were accelerated at the ESS site during the commissioning of the ion source and low energy beam transport (LEBT), that started in September 2018 and ran until July 2019. Misalignments of the elements in the LEBT can have a strong impact on the final current transmission of the low energy part. In this paper, we present a way to isolate and measure tilts of the elements and the initial centroid divergence of the source. We also present initial test measurements for the ESS LEBT and discuss how to extend the method to other facilities.
