Scintillation Screens and Optical Technology for transverse Profile Measurements

ARIES-ADA Topical Workshop, Krakow, Poland, April 1 to 3, 2019

New (August 2019): Link to Workshop Summary (pdf)

We are pleased to announce the Joint ARIES Workshop on diagnostics at Electron and Hadron accelerators, which will be held in Krakow, Poland from April 1 to 3, 2019.

It is part of “Advanced Diagnostics for Accelerators” (ADA) within the EU funded ARIES programme (Accelerator Research and Innovation for European Science and Society). Part of the workshop cost are covered by this programme. The workshop is a common project between all Work Packages of the ADA-ARIES EU funded programme and its organization is chaired by GSI.

The workshop venue will be at the Hotel Best Western Krakow Old Town which is located at the old city of Krakow.  

Workshop Topic: Scintillation screens are widely used at all kind of accelerators for transverse profile measurements as they delivers at direct image of the 2-dim beam distribution. 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 described. Moreover, the optical solutions and camera technology in terms of sensitivity and radiation hardness are an important part of such beam instrumentation. A comparable precursor workshop took place at GSI in year 2011, see  

Workshop fee: 100 € to be paid in advance not later than March 15, 2019.

In case of a cancellation the fee can't be reimbursed.

The workshop fee of 100 € should be paid by a bank transfer with the deadline of March 15, 2019 to:
Account number is: IBAN: DE56500500005001865004
