Abstract

The AGS Booster was designed to accelerate low intensity (2×1010) polarized protons, high intensity (1.5×1013) protons and heavy ions through Au+33. Coping with this wide range of beams, the 3×10−11 Torr vacuum and the radiation environment presented challenges for the beam monitors. Some of the more interesting instrumentation design and performance during the recent Booster proton commissioning will be described.
