Title Investigations Into Non-Linear Beam Dynamics in Electrostatic Storage Rings
Abstract Electrostatic (ES) storage rings provide a cost-effective solution to the problem of confining low energy ( ≪ 1) charged particles and ions, whilst controlling the beam properties, for use in multi-pass experiments. However, compared to magnetic storage rings, the beam dynamics calculations for an ES ring show subtle differences, especially in the coupling of the longitudinal and transverse velocities and in the focusing properties of bending element fringe fields. Using the nominal design for an existing ES ring, realistic trajectories (including fringe fields and nonlinear field components) have been calculated and a comparison is made with linear lattice simulations. The effect of the non-linear field components on the beam parameters is discussed.
