Abstract

An analysis of the accuracy and sources of error of transverse beam profile measurements made with an ion profile monitor in the Fermilab booster is presented. Two dimensional computer simulations are compared with experiment to determine the magnitude of the errors and a correction algorithm that uses beam size and charge as parameters is developed.
