Intensity Control in GANIL's Experimental Rooms

Abstract : The safety re-examination of existing GANIL facilities requires the implementation of a safety system which makes a control of the beam intensity sent to the experimental rooms possible. The aim is to demonstrate that beam intensities stay below the authorized limits defined by the safety GANIL group. The challenge is to be able to measure by a non-interceptive method a wide range of beam intensities from 5nA to 5 A with a maximum uncertainty of 5%, independently of the frequency (from 7 to 14.5MHz) and the beam energy (from 1.2 to 95MeV.A). After a comparative study, two types of high frequency diagnostics were selected, the capacitive pick-up and the fast current transformer. This paper presents the signal simulations from diagnostics with different beam energies, the uncertainty calculations and the results of the first tests with beam.
