Title Optimization of Low Energy Electrostatic Beam Lines
Abstract Electrostatic elements are frequently used for transporting low energy charged particles, as they are easy to build and operate. However, beam motion is strongly affected by effects from fringe fields, positioning and manufacturing errors of individual ion optical elements. It is important to carry out detailed studies into these effects in order to optimize beam transport. In this paper results from numerical studies with a purpose-written code are presented and compared against analytical estimates. It is shown how the results can be used to optimize the mechanical layout of the electrostatic ion optics elements, including quadrupoles and spherical deflectors. Finally, the results from beam tracking through a multi-element beam line are presented on the basis of both, matrix multiplication and numerical particle tracking.
