    We have designed and implemented a rugged, simple double-ribbon buncher grid that has greatly increased the mean time between failure over wire mesh designs. This grid is used to prebunch several microamperes of beams of heavy ions such as 127I or 79Br at 200 keV, for injection into a MP Tandem...
