We developed a novel beam profile monitor for measuring the shape of an intense neutral beam for particle physics. This monitor is based on a detector technology of scintillating fibers, photomultiplier tubes, and sampling ADCs. It has an advantage for its simplicity, reliability, flexibility, and versatility. This monitor was installed in the small-diameter neutral beam for the K 0L → π0νν̄ experiment at J-PARC. We report in this article the development and performance of this monitor.
