  The SPIRAL2 Facility at GANIL is based on the construction of a superconducting ion CW LINAC (up to 5 mA - 40 MeV deuteron beams and up to 1 mA - 14.5 MeV/u heavy ion beams) with 2 experimental areas called S3 and NFS. The building, the accelerator and experimental equipment studies started in 2009. For safety classified system using beam intensity monitoring, SPIRAL2 project system engineering sets up a specific reinforced process, based on V-Model, to validate, at each step, all the requirements (technical, nuclear safety, quality, reliability, interfaces…) from the functional specifications to the final validation. Since 2016, the main part of the safety devices is installed and is currently under testing. These tests which are pre-requisites to deliver the first beam will demonstrate that both functional and safety requirements are fulfilled. This contribution will describe the requirements (operation field, limitation of equipment activation’), the technical studies, the failure mode and effects analysis, the tests, the status and results of the SPIRAL2 Machine Protection System using AC and DC current transformers to measure and control the beam intensity.

  The European Spallation Source, currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, will be a neutron source based on partly superconducting linac, accelerating protons to 2GeV with a peak current of 62.5mA, ultimately delivering a 5MW beam to a rotating tungsten target. For a successful tuning and operation of a linac, a Beam Loss Monitoring (BLM) system is required. The system is designed to protect the machine from beam-induced damage and unnecessary activation of the components. This contribution focuses on one of the BLM systems to be deployed at the ESS linac, namely the neutron sensitive BLM (nBLM). Recently, test of the nBLM data acquisition chain including the detector has been performed at LINAC4, at CERN. The test represents first evaluation of the system prototype in realistic environment. Results of the test will be presented together with an overview of the ESS nBLM system.

  The European Spallation Source, currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, will be a neutron source based on partly superconducting linac, accelerating protons to 2GeV with a peak current of 62.5mA, ultimately delivering a 5MW beam to a rotating tungsten target. One of the most critical elements for the protection of an accelerator is its Beam Loss Monitoring (BLM) system. The system is designed to protect the machine from beam-induced damage and unnecessary activation of the components. This contribution focuses on one of the BLM systems to be deployed at the ESS linac, namely the Ionisation Chamber based BLM (ICBLM). Several test campaigns have been performed at various facilities. Results of these tests will be presented here together with an overview of the ESS ICBLM system.

TUBO03 Challenges in Continuous Beam Profile Monitoring for MW-Power Proton Beams proton, target, extraction, experiment 247

  Continuous beam profile monitoring of the high-power proton beam is essential for protection of beamline equipment, as well as for producing high-quality physics results, in fixed-target extraction beamlines. Challenges in continuous profile monitoring include degradation of materials after long-term exposure to the proton beam, as well as beam loss due to that material intercepting the beam, which can additionally cause activation of nearby equipment. An overview of various profile monitoring techniques used in high-power neutrino extraction beamlines, issues faced so far at beam powers up to several hundred kW, and some possible future profile monitoring solutions for MW-class beamlines will be shown.

  The muon g-2/EDM experiment at J-PARC aims to measure the muon magnetic moment anomaly, a and electric dipole moment, d by introducing an approach excluding any electric field with measurement goal of 450 and 70 ppb for statistical and systematic uncertainty of a , respectively, and sensitivity of 1.5·10-21 e’cm for d. In order to achieve the precision, the beam needs to manipulated such that the X and Y components are coupled by means of skew quadrupole magnets through the transmission line. The XY coupling quality can affect the transmission and storage efficiency so that its failure causes systematic error. Since it is significant to monitor the XY coupling status during the beam operation, a non-destructive beam profile monitoring system is under development to investigate the XY coupling quality so as to reduce the source of systematic uncertainties. The device consists of stripline electrodes installed with 45 deg. rotational symmetry. It will reconstruct the coupling parameters such as skew angle and beam size by using the FFT-based algorithm. This work presents the simulation result on the reconstruction and the wire test result for the prototype device.

  In this work, we present extensive theoretical and experimental results of novel Silicon Carbide x-ray sensors for beam position monitoring (XBPM). Until recently, diamond, was considered the material-of-choice for continuous monitoring of hard (>6keV) x-ray beams at synchrotron light sources. Diamond XBPM are now commercially available as single crystal* and polycrystalline** sensors. However, in a recently published paper***, we have shown that Silicon Carbide is superior to both diamond crystal types in several critical aspects. Specifically, we found superior electrical characteristics (sensor dynamics, signal uniformity, signal strength) and superior optical properties (full device transparency, device active area, signal strength) when compared to commercial polycrystalline and single crystal diamond, respectively. We also succeeded in the ’industrialization’ of the SiC fabrication process, allowing for the simultaneous realization of several (>40) sensors in up to 4’ SiC wafers, with high yields. More recently we have also analyzed the fluorescence of SiC sensors as compared to YAG ones, finding that SiC can also be used for hybrid position/shape monitoring schema.
