  The normal conducting front end of the European Spallation source will accelerate the beam coming for the ion source up to 90 MeV. The ESS front end will consist in an ion source, a low energy beam transport line, a radio frequency quadrupole, a medium energy beam transport line and a drift tube linac. The warm linac will be equipped with beam diagnostics to measure the beam position, the transverse and longitudinal profile as well as beam current and beam losses. This will provide efficient operation of ESS, and ensure keeping the losses at a low level. This paper gives an overview of the beam diagnostics design and their main features.

  Approaching construction phase in Lund, Sweden, the European Spallation Source (ESS) consists of a superconducting linear accelerator that delivers a 2 GeV, 5 MW proton beam to a rotating tungsten target. As a long pulse neutron source, the ESS does not require an accumulator ring, so the 2.86 ms pulses, with repetition rate of 14 Hz arrive directly from the linear accelerator with low emittance. To avoid damage to target station components, this intense beam must be actively expanded by quadrupoles that produce a centimetre size beamlet, combined with a fast rastering system that paints the beamlet into a 160 mm by 60 mm footprint. Upstream of and within the target station, a suite of devices will measure the beam's density, halo, position, current, and time-of-arrival. Online density measurements are particularly important for machine protection, but present significant challenges. Diverse techniques will provide this measurement within the target station, based upon secondary emission grids, ionisation monitors, luminescent coatings, and Helium gas luminescence. Requirements, system descriptions, and performance estimates will be presented.

  Parts of the linac of the European Spallation Source will consist of cryogenic cavity modules. In between these will be warm sections at room temperature to host amongst others the beam instrumentation. Each of the warm sections will host two beam position monitors and one or two other instruments, which might be a beam current monitor, invasive and non-invasive transverse beam profile monitor, bunch shape monitor, or halo monitor. The concept of the warm section layout will be shown and the planned instrumentation will be presented.

  The European Spallation Source (ESS), to be built in the south of Sweden, will use a 2 GeV superconducting LINAC to produce the world's most powerful neutron source with a beam power of 5 MW. The beam power is a challenge for interceptive beam diagnostics like wire scanner, the thermal load on intercepting devices implies to reduce the beam power in order to preserve the device integrity. For nominal operation, non-disturbing techniques for profile measurements are planned, while for the commissioning phase, accurate measurements and cross checking, wire scanners will be used. This paper describes the preliminary design of the wire scanner system in the normal conducing LINAC as well as in the superconducting LINAC.
