Beam Diagnostic Requirements: an Overview: https://arxiv.org/abs/2005.08389
Beam diagnostics and instrumentation are an essential part of any kind of accelerator. There is a large variety of parameters to be measured for observation of particle beams with the precision required to tune, operate, and improve the machine. In the first part, the basic mechanisms of information transfer from the beam particles to the detector are described in order to derive suitable performance characteristics for the beam properties. However, depending on the type of accelerator, for the same parameter, the working principle of a monitor may strongly differ, and related to it also the requirements for accuracy. Therefore, in the second part, selected types of accelerators are described in order to illustrate specific diagnostics needs which must be taken into account before designing a related instrument.
