Beam Loss Measurement Section (BE-BI-BL)

LHC tunnel

The BL section designs, builds and maintains beam loss monitoring systems, used to measure and protect from particle losses throughout the CERN accelerator complex, as well as non-invasive beam profile measurement systems, used for optimising beam parameters.

  • Beam Loss Monitoring (BLM) based on gaseous, cryogenic and room temperature diamond, and optical/fibre detectors.
  • Non-destructive Beam Profile/Size Measurement systems such as the BGI/IPM and BGV.
  • SPS Spill Control
  • Development of radiation tolerant electronics.
  • Development of new detector types.
