Title: Charge Breeding of Radioactive Isotopes at the CARIBU Facility

Abstract

An Electron Beam Ion Source Charge Breeder (EBIS-CB) has been developed at Argonne National Laboratory as part of the californium rare ion breeder upgrade. For the past year, the EBIS-CB has been undergoing commissioning as part of the ATLAS accelerator complex. It has delivered both stable and radioactive beams with A/Q < 6, breeding times < 30 ms, low background contamination, and charge breeding efficiencies > 18% into a single charge state. The operation of this device, challenges during the commissioning phase, and future improvements will be discussed. Published by AIP Publishing.
