Coherent Transition Radiation (CTR) has widely been used for longitudinal beam profile diagnostics. Its spectral-spatial properties have been thoroughly theoretically and experimentally investigated. We have decided to develop a longitudinal beam profile diagnostics based on CTR technique to be used for interpreting the experimental results of Dielectric Wakefield Accelerator (DWA) and Coherent Cherenkov Diffraction Radiation (CChDR) experiments. In this paper we present the technical design,tuning and commissioning of the CTR longitudinal bunch profile monitor at CLARA facility.
