Abstract

At the GSI heavy ion LINAC, the properties of scintillating screens irradiated by the ion beam were studied. Different ion beams from H+ to U28+ in the energy range from 4.8 to 11.4MeV/u were used with currents up to some mA. The investigations were focused on ceramic materials. Their properties (light yield, beam width and higher statistical moments) were compared with different quartz glasses. The image of each ion beam pulse was recorded by a digital CCD camera and individually evaluated. The recorded beam width shows dependence on the used scintillator material. Additionally, the light yield and beam width depend significantly on the screen temperature. For ZrO2 the influence of the screen temperature on the statistical moments was investigated. Furthermore, the spectra of the scintillation screens were studied in the UV-VIS region with different ion species.
