Abstract : The performance of a diamond X-ray beam position monitor is reported. This detector consists of an ionization solid-state chamber based on a thin single-crystal chemical-vapour-deposition diamond with position-sensitive resistive electrodes in a duo-lateral configuration. The detector's linearity, homogeneity and responsivity were studied on beamlines at Synchrotron SOLEIL with various beam sizes, intensities and energies. These measurements demonstrate the large and homogeneous (absorption variation of less than 0.7% over 500 µm × 500 µm) active area of the detector, with linear responses independent of the X-ray beam spatial distribution. Due to the excellent charge collection efficiency (approaching 100%) and intensity sensitivity (0.05%), the detector allows monitoring of the incident beam flux precisely. In addition, the in-beam position resolution was compared with a theoretical analysis providing an estimation of the detector's beam position resolution capability depending on the experimental conditions (X-ray flux, energy and readout acquisition time)
