The Cyclotron Trap as Decelerator and Ion Source

Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 31)


It is the aim of this contribution to explain in some detail the underlying physical principles which produce narrow stop distribution of anti-protons in the cyclotron trap. The limiting factors of this method will be considered as well as the requirements for beam quality needed to work under optimum conditions. Moreover the possibility to extract low energy antiprotons from the center of the cyclotron trap will be treated.
