Beam halo is an important factor in any high intensity accelerator. It can cause difficulties in the control of the beam, emittance growth, particle loss and even damage to the accelerator. It is therefore essential to understand the mechanisms of halo formation and its dynamics in order to control and minimize its effects. Experimental measurement of the halo distribution is an important tool for such studies. In this paper, we present a new adaptive masking method that we have developed todoi:10.1103/physrevstab.15.072803 fatcat:thjl36nxwfe5tbiijecrnycyji
