Beam Profile Measurements

  • Peter Strehl
Part of the Particle Acceleration and Detection book series (PARTICLE)


In accelerator physics, the density distributions of particles over the two transverse coordinates x (horizontal) and y (vertical) are called beam profiles. As discussed in Chap. 6, beam profiles can be derived from the two-dimensional transversal subspaces of six-dimensional phase space, occupied by the ensemble of all particles. Hence, emittance measurements in the transverse phase planes automatically deliver also the beam profile (see Chap. 6).
