The BNL EBIS Program: Status and plans

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Recently an Electron Beam Ion Source (EBIS), on long term loan from Sandia National Laboratories, has been put into operation at Brookhaven National Laboratory. This source is being primarily used as a test device to answer questions relevant to the eventual design of an EBIS-based heavy ion preinjector for RHIC; a secondary objective is to determine parameters of an EBIS capable of delivering fully stripped light ions up to neon for medical applications. Such a source can easily produce all ions in charge states as needed, but the challenge lies in reaching intensities of interest to RHIC (2--3 {times} 10{sup ... continued below

Description

Recently an Electron Beam Ion Source (EBIS), on long term loan from Sandia National Laboratories, has been put into operation at Brookhaven National Laboratory. This source is being primarily used as a test device to answer questions relevant to the eventual design of an EBIS-based heavy ion preinjector for RHIC; a secondary objective is to determine parameters of an EBIS capable of delivering fully stripped light ions up to neon for medical applications. Such a source can easily produce all ions in charge states as needed, but the challenge lies in reaching intensities of interest to RHIC (2--3 {times} 10{sup 9} particles/pulse). The source studies are planned to address issues such as scaling of the electron beam current in stages up to 10 A, possible onset and control of instabilities, external ion injection, parametric studies of the ion yield, charge state distributions and emittance of the extracted ion beam, ion cooling in the trap, and other technical and physics issues.
