Focusing of ion beams of MeV energy until now has been mostly accomplished by magnetic quadrupole lenses in different configurations: doublet, triplet, quadruplet and quintuplet. Many focusing systems are two-parametric focusing systems, i.e., systems having two field parameters (two excitations). The simplest two parametric focusing system, other than the doublet, is a two parametric triplet which can consist of two different configurations: (1) an Oxford configuration in which the focusing (F) and defocusing (D) capabilities of the lenses in one plane alternate F-D-F whereas the lens strengths are ordered as A-A-B, and (2) a triplet in which the focusing and defocusing capabilities of the lenses in one plane also alternate F-D-F but the lens strengths are ordered as A-B-A. Experimental results of a comparison of system parameters for these two focusing configurations, including demagnifications, magnet current, and slit settings will be shown. Both configurations utilized the Oxford Microbeams, Ltd. 10 cm long magnetic quadrupole lenses.

    The charge breeding process, consisting of a low charge state ion beam (1+) plasma capture followed by a multi-ionization process, has been developed for more than ten years in LPSC Grenoble (previously ISN) using ECRIS. The challenge has been to optimize the 1+ capture and then the reextraction...

    The Monte Carlo ion beam analysis simulation program Corteo was adapted to the case of coincidence spectrometry of identical ions. Since multiple scattering (MS) is properly simulated, it reproduces very well the shape of a spectrum, especially the depth-dependent detection efficiency, provided...
