Abstract

Over recent years the first Diffraction Radiation (DR) beam size monitor has been tested on a circular machine. At CesrTA, Cornell University, USA, the sensitivity and limitations of the DR monitor for vertical beam size measurement has been investigated. DR emitted from 1 and 0:5 mm target apertures was observed at 400 and 600 nm wavelengths. In addition, interference between the DR signals emitted by the target and mask has been observed. In this report, we present the recent observations and discuss areas for improvement.
