Description: The mechanical design of and apparatus in which crossed electrostatic and electromagnetic fields are used to separate high-energy charged particies of different masses is described. The coaxial geometry of this device allows the separation in about 2/3 the space required with a parallel-plate deflector. The velocity spectrometer described was built specifically to produce enriched beams of K mesons or antiprotons, but it can be utilized in other applications by changing its parameters. The ratio of particle fluxes in a detector with the spectrometer off and on is 700 to 1. (auth)
