Abstract
We describe a direct method for monitoring the geometrical dimensions of a synchrotron beam at the target position for internal target installations. The method allows for the observation of the proton beam size as well as th e position of the beam relative to the target. As a first demonstration of the technique, we present results obtained by means of the COSY-11 detectio n system installed at the cooler synchrotron COSY. The influence of the sto chastic cooling on the COSY proton beam dimensions is also investigated. (C ) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
