Bunch Length Detector Based on X-Ray Produced Photoelectrons

Abstract : We have developed and tested an X-ray based Bunch Length Detector (XBLD) for application in ion accelerators. X-rays produced as a result of ion beam interactions with matter are used to generate photoelectrons. The photoelectrons are analyzed by an rf deflector synchronized with the master oscillator, similar to the BLDs based on secondary electrons. The expected time resolution is several picoseconds. The proposed XBLD is particularly useful for the measurement of cw heavy-ion beams passing through a stripper foil or film in a high-power driver accelerator. The results of the XBLD commissioning and beam bunch profile measurements at the ANL heavy-ion cw ATLAS accelerator will be presented.
