A visible-light beam size monitor has been built and commissioned to measure transverse beam profiles at CESR-TA*. In order to eliminate beam jitter and to study bunch-by-bunch beam dynamics, a fast-gating camera has been utilized to measure single bunch transverse beam profiles. The minimum camera gate width is ~ 3ns which allows us to resolve single bunch beam dynamics along a CesrTA bunch train. Using single bunch interferometry at different bunch currents, we found that the horizontal beam sizes measured by gated camera are consistently less than those measured by a conventional CCD camera, demonstrating the elimination of turn-by-turn beam jitter with single shot capability. By stepping the camera trigger delay, we collected transverse beam profile images from each bunch in a 14ns-spacing 30-bunch train. The horizontal motion of each bunch as well as the horizontal beam size increases dramatically along an electron train but not along positron bunch trains under the same machine condition. The difference in single bunch horizontal dynamics may be a signature for the difference between electron cloud build-up for positron bunch trains versus ions present for electron bunch trains.
