ED - Schaa, Volker RW TI - Development of a Beam-Gas Curtain Profile Monitor for the High Luminosity Upgrade of the LHC J2 - Proc. of IBIC2018, Shanghai, China, 9-13 September 2018 C1 - Shanghai, China T2 - International Beam Instrumentation Conference T3 - 7 LA - english AB - High luminosity upgrades to the LHC at CERN and future energy frontier machines will require a new generation of minimally invasive profile measurement instruments. Production of a dense, focussed gas target allows beam-gas fluorescence to be exploited as an observable, giving an instrument suitable for installation even in regions of high magnetic field. This paper describes the development of a device based on these principles that would be suitable for operation in the LHC. It focusses on mechanisms for the production of a homogeneous gas curtain, the selection of an appropriate working gas and the optical fluorescence detection system.
