Abstract [en]

The construction of a high intensity neutrino source requires multi megawatt beams and challenges the targets in use. MERIT is a proof-of-principle test for a novel kind of neutrino factory target, employing a 24 GeV/c proton beam and a 1 cm in diameter free mercury jet as beam target. This thesis describes the design and implementation of a secondary particle flux production detection system. Employed detectors are polycrystalline diamond detectors and electron multipliers. Simulations of the secondary particle production have been made using FLUKA. The detection system is remotely controlled by a LabView interface and experimental observations from the initial analysis are presented.
