  Rare Isotope Beams (RIBs) are created at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) by the in-flight particle fragmentation method. A novel system is proposed to stop the RIBS in a helium filled gas system followed by a reacceleration that will provide opportunities for an experimental program ranging from low-energy Coulomb excitation and to transfer reaction studies of astrophysical reactions. The beam from the gas stopper will first be brought into a Electron Beam Ion Trap (EBIT) charge breeder on a high voltage platform to increase its charge state and then accelerated initially up to about 3 MeV/u by a system consisting of an external multi-harmonic buncher and a Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) followed a superconducting linac. The planned RFQ will operate in the cw mode at a frequency of 80.5MHz to accelerate ion beams from ~12 keV/u to ≥ 300keV/u. An external multi-harmonic buncher will be used to produce a small longitudinal emittance beam out of the RFQ. In this paper, we will describe the design of the RFQ, present the beam dynamics simulation results, and also discuss the impact of the external buncher harmonics on the output beam properties.

  The RF Fragment Separator (RFFS) proposed in* is now under construction and should be operational by May 2007. The RFFS is an additional purification system for secondary beams at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory after the existing A1900 fragment separator and will primarily be used to purify beams of rare neutron deficient isotopes. The RFFS uses a transverse electric field of an rf kicker to separate unwanted particles from the desired ion beam, a pi/2 phase advance cell to rotate the beam in phase space before the beam reaches a collimating aperture for purification and a final pi phase advance cell to transport the desired beam to the experiment. The final design for the rf kicker and the focusing system is presented and a status report on the building and commissioning effort is given.
