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.
The following application note Monitoring and Controlling Particle Beams in Real Time with reference to the use of Agilent high-speed digitizers at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and fill –pattern monitoring at the Australian synchrotron in Melbourne describes how digitizers are used for monitoring and control systems at major particle accelerator sites.
