Design Issues Related to Producing Accelerated Rare Isotopes

Mauricio Portillo, ANL/PHY

For several years, members of the nuclear structure community have expressed an interest in having accelerated rare isotope beams delivered on target. The ion sources that may be used to deliver rare isotopes to such an accelerator must be efficient and able to withstand extreme conditions of beam power, high temperature, and radiation levels. The limitation imposed by such conditions require that acceleration of low charge state ions be considered with high selectivity mass filtering. Issues related to these limitations will be covered as well as some possible schemes to overcome them. An emphasis will be given on matching such beams to the current ATLAS linear accelerator system at Argonne.
