Abstract:

The current of an intense, pulsed proton beam is experimentally determined by monitoring prompt gamma rays from nuclear reactions induced in a suitable target. Relevant data is given on the reactions employed including 7Lip, gamma8Be, 19Fp, alpha gamma16O, and 12Cp, gamma13N so that absolute currents can be determined. This method avoids the complication of target blow-off and the need for attenuating screens when applied to high current density beams. Author
