An Electron Beam Ion Source (EBIS) has been designed and is being built to charge breed ions from the CAlifornium Rare Isotope Breeder Upgrade (CARIBU) for post acceleration in the Argonne Tandem Linear Accelerator System (ATLAS). The calculated transverse acceptance of the EBIS charge breeder can approach the emittance of the injected ion beam, so beam distortion during transport could lead to incomplete injection and a decrease in the overall system efficiency. The beam quality can be maintained for simulations of the transport line using the ideal ion beam parameters. This paper reports the results of the electrostatic and ion beam transport simulations used to minimize the ion beam distortions by optimizing component designs and configurations.
