Title Investigations Into Efficient Extraction and Acceleration Of Beams From Ion Traps
Abstract A number of exotic ion species, such as for example radioactive isotopes or antiprotons, are highly desirable at very low energies of some tens of keV for fundamental studies. In order to obtain cooled beams with low emittance and low momentum spread, these particles are often first captured in an ion trap, cooled and then extracted and accelerated before being used in experiments. The extraction mechanism and subsequent beam handling impacts critically on the final beam quality. In this contribution, the beam energyis optimized for efficient beam extraction and acceleration from a specific ion traps. For this purpose, field maps from the MUSASHI trap at CERN are used as a basis for simulation studies into the beam dynamics and output beam quality.
