Single-crystalline diamond detectors are radiation hard and conduct heat very well which makes them an ideal choice for particle tracking devices close to the LHC beam. As a first application they will be used in a luminosity telescope (PLT) that is scheduled to be inserted into the CMS detector in 2012. This summer, several diamond detectors have been bump-bonded to the readout-chip of the CMS silicon detector and their detection characteristics have been tested in the 150GeV pion beam of CERN's SPS, with and without a 3Tesla magnetic field. The poster will introduce the luminosity telescope and present results from the beam test.
