About the Project
Cherenkov-Diffraction Radiation (ChDR) is an emission phenomenon which occurs when a charged particle moves in the vicinity of and parallel to a dielectric medium. Due to its non-invasive nature, ChDR may be exploited for an entirely new suite of diagnostics instrumentation. In recent years, proof-of principle studies at CESR, USA; ATF2, Japan; CLEAR, CERN, Switzerland and Diamond, UK have demonstrated the sensitivity of incoherent ChDR on parameters such as beam size, single bunch length, and beam position.
With machine upgrades such as Diamond-II which employ narrow beam pipes, a novel beam position monitor (BPM) using ChDR becomes feasible. Furthermore, unlike traditional rf button BPMs, a ChDR BPM could be located within magnetic structures. This is particularly advantageous for diffraction-limited storage rings where space is of a premium and to control the beam trajectory through dipole magnets to ensure optimal performance.
