Description: Results pertaining to the recently modified beam-injection arrangement in the central cell of TMX-U are presented here. These modifications followed our observation that beam atoms injected perpendicular to the magnetic axis between the first two magnet-coil gaps give rise to trapped ions with midplane pitch angles lying in the intervals 68/sup 0/ < theta < 78/sup 0/ and 59/sup 0/ < theta < 65/sup 0/. These pitch-angle intervals are similar in value to the earlier arrangement of beams injected at the midplane at pitch angles of 58 and 70/sup 0/. Normal injection at an off-midplane position has two advantages when compared with off-normal injection at the midplane. First, the unattenuated beam can be dumped in the first-injector region rather than in the plasma region. Second, the beams can be oriented with their long dimension horizontal rather than vertical. The first point al
