  This paper describes various measurements performed on the beam behavior with the help of the main probe and the differential probe to have a clear insight of the accelerating beam and the difficulties of beam -extraction process in the K500 superconducting cyclotron at Kolkata. Beam shadow measurements with three probes at three sectors were done to get the information of beam-centering and radial oscillations. The radial oscillation amplitude is estimated from the measurements. A differential probe was used to measure the turn separation and its modulation due to radial oscillation. With the help of magnetic field detuning method, the beam phase history was also measured.

The superconducting cyclotron at Kolkata has accelerated the ion beams up to the extraction radius producing neutrons via nuclear reactions. After that the beam extraction process has been tried exhaustively. But rigorous beam extraction trials indicate towards some kind of error field, which was not possible to balance with the trim coil operated in harmonic-coil mode. It is found that the beam is being off-centered by a large amount after crossing the resonance zone and it is not reaching the extraction radius in proper path. This paper will be emphasizing the effect of various kind of error field on the beam. However, the magnetic field is being measured again to know the exact distribution of the field.
