  An X-ray detector is being developed for diagnostic measurement and monitoring of the Drift Tube LINAC (DTL) at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) at Los Alamos National Lab. The detector will consist of a row of x-ray spectrometers adjacent to the DTL that will measure the spectrum of X-rays resulting from bremsstrahlung of electrons created in vacuum by the RF. Each spectrometer will monitor a specific gap between drift tubes, and will consist of an array of scintillating crystals coupled to SiPMs read out with custom-built electronics. The spectrometer is designed with one LYSO and three NaI crystals. The LYSO provides a tagged gamma source with three peaks that are used for calibration of the NaI. A prototype of the spectrometer was tested at the LANSCE DTL to validate the feasibility of measuring gamma spectra and performing self-calibration in situ. A summary of test results with the LANSCE prototype will be presented, along with a detector system design that aims to be modular and inexpensive across all modules in the DTL. Plans for future development will be presented as well.

  We will describe the development and prospects for the Time-Resolved Beam Halo Monitor (TR-BHM) along with results from initial beam tests. The TR-BHM is a detector system for measuring and characterizing the spatial and temporal structure of particle halos accompanying accelerated particle bunches utilizing diamond strip detectors read out by system-on-chip (SoC) high-speed waveform digitizers developed by Nalu Scientific LLC (NSL). It will provide a powerful non-destructive in-situ beam diagnostic detector for real-time measurements and control of beam parameters for the next generation of light sources. The theory, detection methodology, and instrumentation will be discussed, as well as measurement results from full-system x-ray beam calibration tests and preparations for an upcoming prototype installation at FACET.
