A detector consisting of four p-i-n silicon pad structures of size 6 × 6 mm2 and thickness 300 μm was developed for the rapid monitoring of carbon ion beam quality at the Temporary Radiobiology Facility at the Institute for High Energy Physics (TRBF IHEP) by measuring event-by-event energy release on passage of charged particles (ions) through it. This articles describes the detector design and the method used for identifying contaminants in the beam of carbon nuclei. The charge composition of the ion beam of the TRBF IHEP calculated using the amplitude spectra of signals from the p-i-n structures is presented.
