B1-HV sCVD DIAMOND BEAM LOSS DETECTOR
Beam-Losses at Electron Accelerators
The B1-HV sCVD Diamond Beam Loss Detector has been optimized for high intensity beam losses and high irradiations. This detector has a high-voltage input for the bias-voltage supply. The detector is read out from the low-voltage side. Charging capacitors are implemented to compensate for the detector discharge. The charging capacitors have a capacitance of 100 nF.
The B1-HV detector is in use as beam loss detector at the LHC at CERN.

OPTIONSThe B1-HV can be used and optimized for various applications.
- For UHV vacuum applications, we can provide a specified ceramics packaging for this detector.
- B1-HV in combination with the C2 Broadband Amplifier is used for fast beam loss measurements with a very high intensity dynamic range. Bunch-by-bunch loss measurements are feasible using this system with time resolution in the sub-nanosecond range.

Diamond Detectors at CNGS
Fast timing measurements were applied with the B1-HV detector at CNGS in 2012 to help clarifying the famous 'faster-than-light neutrino anomaly' which puzzled the international scientific community at the time.
