A Small Deceleration Ring for Extra Low Energy Antiprotons (ELENA)

Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 17)


A small ring which allows deceleration of antiprotons coming from LEAR down to 200 keV is presented. The phase-space blow-up during deceleration is compensated by electron cooling. Final beam dimensions are limited by intra-beam scattering. Depending on the number of decelerated antiprotons, the 200 keV antiproton beam will have at least the same emittance and momentum spread as the 5 MeV LEAR beam.
