Real-Time Display System for the Optical Fiber Beam Loss Monitor for the PHIL and ThomX Facilities

Abstract : Fiber monitors are an attractive beam loss diagnostics tool. They are based on the detection of the electromagnetic shower produced by the main beam losses. Cherenkov radiation is produced by the electromagnetic shower charged particles within the multimode fibers attached to the vacuum chamber. It is consequently converted to an electrical signal containing the information about the position and intensity of the beam losses. Therefore, a system based on the fibers installed alongside the whole accelerator togetherwith the signal detection system forms a continuous, real-time Fiber Beam LossMonitor (FBLM). In this context, the FBLM is a very useful tool for the commissioning and beam alignment. In this article we report on the development of the real-time display system for the FBLM at PHIL (PHotoInjector at LAL, Orsay, France) as a prototype of the beamloss monitor for the ThomX project, the compact Compton based X-ray source under construction in Orsay.
