Abstract

To design the magnetic system of the Debrecen-ECRIS and to study the behaviour of charged particle traps a graphical computer code (TrapCAD 1.0) was developed. This code uses the outputs of popular general-purpose magnetic field calculation codes (e.g. POISSON/PANDIRA) as input. The TrapCAD offers several built-in functions: draws field lines, flux tubes and the surfaces of equal magnetic field. It is also possible to calculate and visualise the one-particle movement of charged particles in the trap. This paper describes all the details of the code implementation, features and functions. Examples for the optimization of the Debrecen-ECRIS - to reduce the price of the hexapole magnet and the electrical consumption of the solenoids - are also given.
