Workshop on diagnostics at electron and hadron accelerators,

April 1 - 3, 2019, Krakow, Poland

GSI in collaboration with SORARIS, Krakow is organizing an ARIES-ADA Workshop with the title ‚ÄúScintillation Screens and Optical Technology for Transverse Profile Measurements‚ÄĚ at Electron and Hadron Accelerators. This workshop will be held on April 1 - 3, 2019, in Krakow, Poland.

The event is sponsored by the EU funded ARIES programme (Accelerator Research and Innovation for European Science and Society) and in particular by one of its tasks -  ADA (Advanced Diagnostics for Accelerators). The organization committee is chaired by GSI in collaboration with SORARIS, Krakow

Workshop topic: Scintillation screens are widely used at all kind of accelerators for transverse profile measurements. However, the choice of an appropriate scintillation material depends on the beam parameters to guarantee sufficient sensitivity, spatial resolution and dynamic range. The physical basis of the scintillation process will be discussed to enable the understanding of possible limitation like saturation effects or resolution limits. The experiences and applicability obtained at various accelerator facilities will be discussed. Moreover, the optical solutions and camera technology in terms of sensitivity and radiation hardness are an important part of such beam instrumentation.
