Abstract

Standard beam profile measurements of high–brightness electron beams based on optical transition radiation (OTR) may be hampered by coherence effects induced by the microbunching instability which render a direct beam imaging impossible. As consequence, for modern linac based 4t h generation light sources as the European XFEL which is currently under construction in Hamburg, transverse beam profile measurements are based on scintillating screen monitors. However, the resolution of a scintillator based monitor is limited due to intrinsic material properties and the observation geometry. In this report, a beam size measurement in the order of a few micrometer is presented using a LYSO scintillator, and discussed in view of the possible achievable resolution.
