  At GSI ion beams of many elements, from H up to U, are produced with energy as high as 4.5 GeV/u with the SIS-18 synchrotron. For absolute beam intensity and micro-spill structure measurements a BC400 organic scintillator is used. Due to the low radiation hardness of this material, alternative inorganic scintillators like ZnO:Ga and ZnO:In were investigated. The properties and possible application of these novel radiation hard fast scintillators will be discussed. Their response to Sn, Xe and U ion beams will be reported.

  Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) diamond as radiation detector material has a wide range of applications, in par- ticular for harsh radiation environments and at high tem- peratures. The sensitivity of diamond is exploited in meas- urements with charged particles, neutrons and photons. Diamond detectors are used as beam loss monitors in particle accelerators, for photon detection in Synchrotron Light Sources, for neutron diagnostics in thermal neutron fields and for Deuterium-Deuterium (D-D) fusion and Deuterium-Tritium (D-T) fusion plasma neutrons. In this paper we present the simulated and measured re- sponse functions of single-crystal (sCVD) diamond detec- tors to charged particles, heavy ions, thermal neutrons, fast neutrons, X-rays and gamma radiation. All measurements were performed with CIVIDEC diamond detectors and re- lated electronics [1] at various research facilities.

Scintillation screens made of various inorganic materials are widely used for transverse beam profile diagnostics at all kinds of accelerators. The monitor principle is based on the particles’ energy loss and its conversion to visible light. The resulting light spot is a direct image of the two-dimensional beam distribution. For large beam sizes standard optical techniques can be applied, while for small beam sizes dedicated optical arrangements have to be used to prevent for image deformations. In the modern linac based light sources scintillator usage serves as an alternative way to overcome limitations related to coherent OTR emission. Radiation damages and intensity based saturation effects, in dependence of the screen material, have to be modelled. In this talk, an introduction to the scintillation mechanism in inorganic materials will be given including practical demands and limitations. An overview on actual applications at hadron and electron accelerators will be discussed as summary of the Joint ARIES-ADA Workshop on ’Scintillation Screens and Optical Technology for transverse Profile Measurements’ held in Kraków, Poland.

  Scintillating screens are widely used for beam profile diagnostics at various kinds of particle accelerators. At modern linac based electron machines with ultrashort bunches as the European XFEL in Hamburg (Germany), scintillators help to overcome the limitation of standard OTR based monitors imposed by the emission of coherent radiation. The XFEL injector section is equipped with four off-axis screens allowing to perform online beam profile diagnostics, i.e. a single bunch out of a bunch train is kicked onto the screen and the profile is analyzed. However, during user operation a decrease of the SASE level was observed in cases that one of the of-axis screens was used. The observation is explained by charging of the scintillator screen: each deflected bunch hitting the screens causes ionization and charging of the screen. The scintillator as good insulator keeps the charge for some time such that the non-deflected part of the bunch-train feels their Coulomb force and experiences a kick, resulting in a drop of the SASE level. This report summarizes the observations at the European XFEL and introduces a simple model for quantification of this effect.

  MYRTE (MYRRHA Research Transmutation Endeavour) performs research to support the development of the MYRRHA (Multi-Purpose Hybrid Research Reactor for High-Tech Applications) research facility, which aims to demonstrate the feasibility of high-level nuclear waste transmutation at industrial scale. MYRRHA Facility aims to accelerate 4mA proton beam up to 100 MeV. The accurate tuning of LINAC is essential for the operation of MYRRHA and requires measurement of the beam transverse position and shape , the phase of the beam with respect to the radiofrequency voltage with the help of Beam Position Monitor (BPM) system. MYRTE aims to qualify beam operation at 1.5MeV. Two BPMs were realized for MYRTE operation. This paper addresses the design, realization, and calibration of these two BPMs and their associated electronics. The characterization of the beam shape is performed by means of a test bench allowing a position mapping with a resolution of 0.02mm.
