Abstract
Modern Synchrotrons are capable of significant per pulse x-ray flux, and time resolved pulse- probe experiments have become feasible. These experiments provide unique demands on x-ray monitors, as the beam position, flux and arrival time all potentially need to be recorded for each x-ray pulse. Further, monitoring of white x-ray beam position and flux upstream of beamline optics is desirable as a diagnostic of the electron source and insertion device alignment. Sydor Instruments, in collaboration with Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) will advance a novel diamond-based transmission beam monitor for synchrotron beamlines. Scientists at BNL have developed prototype diamond detectors that demonstrate performance suitable for commercial products. The proposed Phase I program will focus on the commercial engineering of the diamond detector to produce beamline diagnostics supporting a variety of applications, for both white and monochromatic beams. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: The anticipated benefit from this program will be two-fold. First it will provide a commercial beam monitors with functionality not available today that being an x-ray beam monitor robust enough to accommodate the flux of white beams from synchrotron beamlines, while also retaining the sensitivity to observe monochromatic beams on a per pulse basis. Secondly, it will enable closed loop beam diagnostics to aid in the troubleshooting and optimization of current and future beamlines throughout Synchrotron radiation community.
