Title An antiproton recycler for atom-antiproton collision experiments
Contributors
Abstract Collision experiments with low energy antiprotons and gas jet targets such as He, Ar, or H, aimed at measuring differential cross sections, would be a very interesting way to elucidate the details of this interesting collision process. At present, such experiments are, however, not feasible, since the only source of antiprotons in the world, the AD at CERN, cannot provide beams of the required energy and quality. The design of a small electrostatic ring, which would enable such experiments, has been developed. This ring is also a prototype for the future ultra-low energy storage ring (USR), which will be integrated at the facility for low-energy antiproton and ion research (FLAIR). This small ring is unique due to its combination of size, electrostatic nature, and energy of the circulating particles. In this contribution, the design of the ring is described and possible scenarios for its use at the ASACUSA beam line and behind the ELENA ring are compared with each other.
