The first phase of the SARAF high current proton/deuteron accelerator is currently under commissioning. The first experience with 3 mA, pulsed proton beam included the measurement of the energy spectra of the protons of energies up to 2.2 MeV scattered at 45° from a 0.3 mg/cm2 thick gold foil. The beam was accelerated by the RFQ and by several superconducting resonators. The energy spectra of the scattered particles were taken for different accelerator settings. The results were compared with time-of-flight and with Monte-Carlo calculations. Monitoring the energy of the scattered particles proved to be a useful tool for beam tune and calibration of the accelerator components such as the RFQ and the superconducting resonators.
