SEISM : a 60GHz cusp electron cyclotron resonance ion source

Abstract : The LPSC is involved for several years in a challenging R&D effort dedicated to study the production of pulsed radioactive ions beams with high ionization efficiency. The driving force of these studies is the long term Beta Beam scenario study. The ins and outs of the Beta Beams source requirements will be recalled. The generation of the high magnetic field requires the use of helix techniques developed at LNCMI. As a first approach, a cusp structure has been chosen. 3D simulations were used to define the geometry of the helices. The CAD mechanical design of the magnetic structure has been performed at LPSC and was optimized to decrease the total volume of the source. The first 60 GHz magnetic structure (helices coils in their tanks, electrical and water cooling environment) should be available before the end of 2009
