When beam ions collide with residual gas molecules, some molecules are ionized remaining in an excited state with a certain probability. In a N2-dominated residual gas composition, a strong fluorescence at 390 nm < lamda < 470 nm (blue), of about 60 ns lifetime, is generated by a transition band to the N2+ electronic ground state. Since the actual amount of photons is limited by the convolution of gas- and beam density as well as the viewport apperture is limited, single photon detection is an important issue:
