High-speed digitizer and particle accelerators: ch.3

Beam Diagnostic Devices and Data Acquisition for the HICAT Facility 

This paper describes the development of LINAC Beam diagnostics in the Heavy Ion Cancer Therapy facility (HICAT) at the university hospital in Heidelberg.  This computer controlled system uses a combination of techniques to allow an automated detection of all relevant beam parameters.Download the article

Particle accelerators may be circular or linear, and can measure from 1m to 10’s of km  in length.  They are used as experimental sites for nuclear physics interactions, particle colliders and light sources (X-ray).  Agilent digitizers are used in beam control – helping optimise the position of the beam through the steering and acceleration stages – and in the experiments that observe the particle and light interactions.
