Title Optimization studies of planar supersonic gas-jets for beam profile monitor applications
Abstract Supersonic gas-jets have attracted much interest as experimental targets in several fields of science since they combine low internal temperatures with high directionality. Axisymmetric jets have found widespread application, triggering a wealth of studies on their properties, while only a limited number of detailed studies have been done on planar jets. In this paper, the design of a beam profile monitor based on a planar supersonic gas-jet for use in the Ultralow energy Storage Ring (USR) at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Germany is described. Optimization of the monitor requires investigation into different characteristic jet parameters. For that purpose extensive simulation work with the Gas Dynamics Tool (GDT) was done. The results of these studies are presented together with a description of a novel nozzle-skimmer configuration and an experimental test stand to benchmark the numerical results.
