Optical studies for the super separator spectrometer S3

Abstract : S3 (Super Separator Spectrometer) [1] is a future device designed for experiments with the high intensity heavy ion stable beams of SPIRAL2 [2] at GANIL (Caen, France). It will include a target resistant to these very high intensities, a first stage momentum achromat for primary beam extraction and suppression, a second stage mass spectrometer and a dedicated detection system. This spectrometer includes large aperture quadrupole triplets with embedded multipolar corrections. To enable the primary beam extraction one triplet has to be opened on one side, which requires an appropriate design of such a multipolar magnet. The final mass separation power required for S3 needs a careful design of the optics with a high level of aberration correction. Multiple symmetric lattices were studied for this purpose. A 4-fold symmetric lattice and the achieved results are described in this paper.
