Abstract

The low-energy ELENA ring at the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) facility at CERN will lower the kinetic energy of antiproton beams from 5.3 MeV to 100 keV, significantly increasing the antiproton trapping efficiency at the experiments. The antiprotons from ELENA will be distributed to two experimental areas housing several different experiments through a system of electrostatic transfer lines totalling 90 m in length. A significant optimisation of the electrostatic optical elements (deflectors, quadrupoles, and correctors) has been carried out to improve the beam quality delivered to the experiments and facilitate installation of the beam lines into the AD hall. A general overview of the beam optics is presented, including end-to-end particle tracking and error studies from the extraction point in the ELENA ring to the experiments.
