  In this paper, we present experimental and numerical studies of the signals from the Poisson-like distributions resulting from electrons incident on a diamond sensor placed near the exit of the PHIL photoinjector facility at LAL. The experiments were performed at the newly commissioned Low Energy Electron TECHnology (LEETECH) platform at PHIL. Bunches of 10x9 electrons are first generated and accelerated to 3.5 MeV by PHIL. The electrons are then filtered in LEETECH by a system of collimators, using a dipole magnet for momentum selection. The diamond sensor is located immediately after the output collimator to collect electrons in the range 2.5-3 MeV. We show that with standard scCVD diamonds of 500 micrometers thickness, the energy losses from the first three MIP (minimum ionizing particle) electrons are clearly resolved. We did not observe distinguishable peaks in cases when a significant fraction of the incident electrons had energies below a MIP. The described technique can be used as complementary approach for calibration of diamond detectors as well as to diagnose and help control accelerated beams in a regime down to a few particles.
