  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.

An ECR ion source was constructed at the NSCL/MSU to replace the existing SC-ECRIS. This ECRIS operates at 18+14.5 GHz microwave frequencies and it is planned an upgrade to 24-28 GHz in the second phase of commissioning. A superconducting hexapole coil produces the radial magnetic field; the axial trapping is produced with six superconducting solenoids enclosed in an iron yoke to allow tuning the distance between the plasma electrode and resonant zone in the plasma. The plasma chamber of the ion source can be biased at +30 kV, the beam line at -30 kV. The voltage of the beam line vacuum pipe must be kept constant from the ECRIS to the point of full separation of the beam charge states near the image plane of the analyzing magnet. At this point, an insulator is used to increase the voltage up to zero value. The kinetic energy of the beam is decreased to 30 kV per unit charge after this point, as required for the injection in the Coupled Cyclotron Facility. To decrease the beam divergence, a focusing solenoid is installed after the vacuum pipe break. We report the details of the design, construction and initial commissioning results of this new ECIS.
