Abstract

We present a high-resolution in situ imaging and localization method of energetic particle beams. Recording of the scattered radiation from a thin featureless foil, placed in the path of the beam, and taken with a pinhole or coded aperture camera arrangement magnifies beam movements at the sensor. At the same time, a magnified image of the beam is available with an exceptional signal-to-noise ratio. We show measurement results of the level of precision that can be achieved and compare them to theoretical limits based on the signal-to-noise levels.
