Intense Beam EXperiment (IBEX)

Page Under Construction...

What is it?

IBEX is a linear Paul trap at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. This small experiment consists of a linear Paul trap apparatus similar to the S-POD system at Hiroshima University, confining non-neutral Argon plasma in an rf quadrupole field. The physical equivalence between this device and a beam in a linear focusing channel makes it suitable for accelerator physics studies including resonances and high intensity effects.
