Title Scintillating screen studies for low energy, low intensity beams
Abstract Future atomic and nuclear physics experiments put challenging demands on the required beam instrumentation. Low energy (< 1 MeV), low intensity (< 10^7 pps) beams will require highly sensitive monitors. This is especially true for the Facility for Low-energy Antiproton and Ion Research (FLAIR) where antiproton beams will be decelerated down to 20 keV and as few as 5 ยท 10^5 particles per second will be slowly extracted for external experiments. In order to investigate the limits of scintillating screens for beam profile monitoring in the low energy, low intensity regime, a systematic analysis of CsI:Tl and a scintillating fibre optic plate (SFOP) were done under different irradiation conditions with keV proton beams. This contribution presents the experimental setup and summarizes the results of this study.
