Title Ultra-low energy storage ring at FLAIR
Abstract The Ultra-low energy electrostatic Storage Ring (USR) at the future Facility for Low-energy Antiproton and Ion Research (FLAIR) will provide cooled beams of antiprotons in the energy range between 300 keV down to 20 keV. Based on the original design concept developed in 2005, the USR has been completely redesigned over the past few years. The ring structure is now based on a 'split achromat' lattice. This ensures compact ring dimensions of 10 x 10 m², whilst allowing both, in-ring experiments with gas jet targets and studies with extracted beams. In the USR, a wide range of beam configurations will be provided, ranging from very short pulses in the nanosecond regime to a coasting beam. The ring also features a combined fast and slow extraction scheme that can provide external experiments with cooled beams of different time structure. Furthermore, studies into beam diagnostics methods for monitoring ultra-low energy ions at beam intensities of less than 106 were carried out. Here, we present the final USR design with an emphasis on the expected beam parameters available to the experiments at FLAIR.
