Abstract

An intense and focused heavy ion beam is a suitable tool to generate high energy density in matter. To compare results with simulations it is essential to know beam parameters as intensity, longitudinal, and transversal profile at the focal plane. Since the beam's energy deposition will melt and evaporate even tungsten, non-intercepting diagnostics are required. Therefore a capacitive pickup with high resolution in both time and space was designed, built and tested at the high temperature experimental area at GSI. Additionally a beam induced fluorescence monitor was investigated for the synchrotron's (SIS-18) energy-regime (60–750 AMeV) and successfully tested in a beam-transfer-line.
