This paper is an overview of a diagnostics setup for highly spread e⁺e⁻ beams, to be installed at the PSI Positron Production (P3 or P-cubed) experiment. To be hosted at the SwissFEL facility (PSI, Switzerland) in 2026, P3 is e+ source demonstrator designed to generate, capture, separate and detect nano-Coulombs of secondary e+ and e- bunches, in spite of their extreme tranverse emittance and energy spread. The experiment will employ an arrangement of broadband pick-ups (BBPs) to detect simultaneously the time structure of secondary e⁺e⁻ bunches. A spectrometer will follow the BBPs and deflect the e+ and e- onto two unconventional faraday cups that will measure their charge. In addition, the energy spectrum of e+ and e- distribution will be reconstructed through scintillating fibers.

  Electron (e-) and positron (e+) bunch characteristics were directly measured for the first time using wideband beam monitors (WBMs) and a detection system at the e+ source of the SuperKEKB B-factory. Both secondarily-generated e- and e+ bunches after the e±production target were clearly identified in their dynamical capture process at locations of the WBMs under two-bunch acceleration scheme. Not only the longitudinal but also transverse bunch characteristics, the time intervals between the e- and e+ bunches, the bunch lengths, transverse bunch positions, and bunch charges were simultaneously separately measured for each bunch as functions of the capture phase to investigate their dynamical capture process. The results show that quite symmetric dynamical behaviors for the e- and e+ bunch characteristics were clearly observed. The new WBMs open up a new window for direct measurements of both the e- and e+ bunches during their dynamical capture process and in the optimization procedure of the e+ bunch intensity in multidimensional parameter spaces at any e+ sources. The historical backgrounds for introducing and implementing the new WBMs are also described in this report.
