In order to achieve the required intensities and energies at new and particle accelerators under construction in the future, new and better diagnostic equipment and methods are needed. The increasing requirements can only be met with significantly improved devices, new measuring principles and a deeper understanding of the physical processes. These include principles for measuring the smallest particle streams, measuring the shortest particle packages, pressure measurement in cryogenic structures, beam profile measurements with as little impact and/or cost as possible, and reliable detection of quenches optimized for plant availability. In all subprojects, the challenges include increasing measurement accuracy and reliability of diagnostics, noise suppression, expanding application range, reducing investment and operating costs, and improving machine availability.
In the DIAGNOSE project, particle beam diagnostics and the monitoring of accelerator components are being further developed and in some cases newly developed, especially at FAIR (GSI) and HL-LHC (CERN). The upcoming work is of decisive importance for the efficient, high-performance and reliable operation of these research facilities.
