We describe a pepper-pot emittance meter (PPEM 1.0) for the characterization of the electron beams that are typically produced by the electron guns used in accelerators. The peculiar feature of the PPEM 1.0 is that it can be easily adjusted (during the measurements, too), thus permitting matching with a wide range of beams and the optimization of each measurement. © 1992.
