Title Beam Emittance Measurements and Beam Transport Optimisation at the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre
Abstract The QUASAR Group is preparing tests of the high energy physics LHCb VELO detector as a non–invasive online dose monitor at the 60 MeV proton therapy beam at the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre (CCC), UK. The proposed method relies on the cross-correlation between the beam halo signal as measured by VELO and the dose delivered to the patient, linked via the absolute intensity of the beam. In order to estimate the expected halo signal and the total beam intensity, studies into proton beam transport through the whole CCC beam line have been carried out. This required the measurement of beam emittance at several positions of the beam delivery system. Quadrupole scans have been realized using a CsI(Tl) scintillating screen in combination with an 8 bit, 13M Pixels CCD camera. In this contribution, results from measurements are presented and discussed.
