NSCL Seminar Room

Scintillation screens are widely used for transverse beam profile diagnostics at particle accelerators. The monitor principle relies on the fact that a charged particle crossing the screen material will deposit a part of its energy which is converted to visible light. The resulting light spot is a direct image of the two-dimensional beam distribution and can be measured with standard optical techniques. This presentation summarizes results and trends from "Scintillating Screen Applications in Beam Diagnostics" workshop held last year in Darmstadt. An introduction to the scintillation mechanism will be given and a brief overview on actual screen monitor applications at hadron accelerators will be presented.
