PROGRESS WITH ISAC LOW INTENSITY DIAGNOSTICS Abstract

Wednesday, February 29, 4:10 PM - Nuclear Science Seminar
NSCL Lecture Hall

The ISAC accelerators presently deliver various stable and radioactive ion beams with widely varying beam energies and intensities. Monitoring of beams with currents lower than ~0.5 epA requires a dedicated diagnostics instrumentation which, typically, makes use of radiation tolerant single particle detectors. Several such devices have been built and are under development at TRIUMF. Device controls and data acquisition are integrated into the EPICS environment and provide standardized, simple and transparent operation. Details of the design, tests and beam measurements will be present.
