Beam Loss Monitoring
Beam loss monitoring becomes essential if lost particles cause non-tolerable activation of accelerator components by nuclear reactions. Moreover, components can be destroyed by the radiation or due to thermal heating by lost energetic particles. Sensitive beam loss monitoring can help the operator to achieve high transmission through a machine up to the target, including the optimization of complex beam transport systems. Beam loss monitors should localize a particle loss and additionally give information about the time and intensity of the loss. Beam loss monitoring can be based on
