A novel Beam Halo Monitor for the CMS experiment at the LHC / Orfanelli, S (Natl. Tech. U., Athens ; CERN) ; Dabrowski, A E (CERN) ; Giunta, M (CERN) ; Loos, R (CERN) ; Ambrose, M J (Minnesota U.) ; Mans, J (Minnesota U.) ; Rusack, R (Minnesota U.) ; Stifter, K (Minnesota U.) ; Stickland, D (Princeton U.) ; Fabbri, F (INFN, Bologna) et al.
A novel Beam Halo Monitor (BHM) has been designed and built for the CMS experiment at the LHC. It will provide an online, bunch-by-bunch measurement of background particles created by interactions of the proton beam with residual gas molecules in the vacuum chamber or with collimator material upstream of CMS.
