Sistema per la ricostruzione del profilo di un fascio di un acceleratore basato su ArduSiPM

Particle beams used in the study of high energy physics or in nuclear medicine need to reconstruct their lateral profile by means of light, compact, easy-to-use and removable measurement equipement.
The Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) are small and cheap photodetector with very high efficiency. A scintillating optical fiber and a SiPM can be easily put together in order to obtain a particle detector which covers only a small fraction of the beam.
If we move the small detector through the beam during a data acquisition the profile of the beam along the direction of movement will be recreated. This is similar to the process of an optical scanner.
Since there is a radioactive environment close to a particles beam a remote readout and control system are needed.
The Arduino Board with two shields are used for this purpose. The ArduSiPM shield is a custom shield designed by INFN Rome that implements the control and readout system for the SiPM. A commercial ethernet or WiFi Arduino shield complements system with internet connection. A web server with a HTML control panel is written in the Arduino. In this way the system contains all the features to monitor, move, and acquire the SiPM using internet network. The whole system can be powered by a battery pack or a small commercial power supply.
