Advanced beam diagnostics are essential for high performance accelerator beam production and for reliable accelerator operation. It is important to have noninvasive diagnostics which can be used continuously with intense beams of accelerated particles. Recently, an electron probe was successfully used to determine accelerated particle density distributions. However, the apparatus used for this diagnostic is large and complex which restricts its wider use for tomography of accelerated bunches. We propose to use a strip cathode is for ribbon electron beam formation instead of a scanning of pencil beam used in the previous electron probe bunch profile monitors. The apparatus with the strip cathode is smaller, has simpler design and less expensive manufacturing, can have better magnetic shielding, higher sensitivity, higher resolution, can have better measurement accuracy and better time resolution. With this device it is possible to develop almost ideal tomography diagnostics of bunches in linear accelerators and in circular accelerators and storage rings.

A comparison of beam loss in the superconducting part (SCL) of the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) linac for H and protons is presented. During the experiment the nominal beam of negative hydrogen ions in the SCL was replaced by a proton beam created by insertion of a thin stripping carbon foil placed in the low energy section of the linac. The observed significant reduction in the beam loss for protons is explained by a domination of the intra-beam stripping mechanism of the beam loss for H-. The details of the experiment are discussed, and a preliminary estimation of the cross section of the reaction H + H -> H + H0 + e is presented.
