Beam Instrumentation

Beam diagnostics systems are essential constituents of any particle accelerator; they reveal the properties of a beam and how it behaves in a machine. Without an appropriate set of diagnostic elements, it would simply be impossible to operate any accelerator complex let alone optimise its performance.

The Group led the largest-ever training initiative in beam instrumentation, DITANET, between 2008 and 2012.

Presently, we carry out research into: 

These activities are linked to developments within the EU projects SiPM and DITA-IIF.
