Proton Beam Instrumentation plug

Proton beam must travel through more than 500m of acceleration devices before impinging the target, what makes necessary to install multiple systems to control the beam quality. The PBIP (Proton Beam Instrumentation Plug) consists of several components introduced in the protons’ path, being their main functions to measure properties to determine that protons arriving to the target do it with the proper shape, energy, frequency, and other parameters, etc., This instrumentation is even capable to evaluate the beam on target by using IR and optical techniques. 

Mechanical and thermal precise design of holding structures that allocate the instrumentation, together with complex aligning features and limiting tolerances, is being carried out by ESS-Bilbao; where intricate manufacturing requirements for optics, beam measuring and disassembling in hot cells for disposal design, must be met in the process.
