Abstract:
The Booster Beam-Whacker, a novel solution for the measurement of beam profiles in rapid- cycling synchrotrons, is described. The idea is conceptually similar to a Weed-Whacker [ ], a device for cutting weeds in a garden. A device using a motor from a PC hard-drive (Whacker Drive?) is used to measure the beam emittance in the Fermilab Booster during 15 Hz operation. That example illustrates the basic principle and demonstrates the practicality of the rotating Beam-Whacker as a beam profile monitor. Similar implementations may be useful as an internal target or as a primary collimator.
