Concept of EBIT-based reacceleration at the NSCL.
Electrode structure used for acceptance calculations.
The three possible cases of overlap of an ion with the electron beam. Left: ion spends time both inside and outside the electron beam. Middle: ion spends all of its time in the electron beam. Right: ion orbits around the electron beam.
The fraction of injected beam that ends up inside the electron beam as a function of beam emittance for three combinations of magnetic field strength at the cathode and in the trap . The three curves in each panel are for three different cathode options; see text.
Capture probability of injected ions as a function of beam emittance for three combinations of magnetic field strength at the cathode and in the trap . The 12 curves in each panel show the effect of three different cathode options (s: , m: , l: ) and four different trap lengths; see text.
