ED Team - Neu: “ELD” (Elektronic Development, NF und HF-Labor)
This very old design from GSI's EE dept. provides 10E-10, 10E-9, 10E-8, 10E-7, 10E-6, 10E-5 or 1E0-4 C per pulse and a full-scale frequency of 10kHz. It is mainly used in the FRS beamline for historic reasons. Formerly, it was controlled by the BEA's “Walterkisten”, but has today to be operated with the new VDIO-control unit via the old electronic adapter:
A resonant current transformer (RT) is a non-intercepting diagnostic device for the precise determination of the total electric charge of a bunched particle beam.
The primary observable is the total electric charge of the transported particle bunch or batch, measured by the instrument after the passage of the entire beam pulse.
The RT can be only used for fast extracted beams (bunches/batches with up to several microseconds duration).
