# An Introduction to Ion-OpticsPage 3

#### WATCH ALL SLIDES

for beam lines with paraxial beams

Code: COSY Infinity:

(x, a, y, b, l, dK, dm, dz)

Needed for complex ion-optical systems including several

charge states

different masses

velocities (e.g. Wien Filter)

higher order corrections

Not defined in the figure are:

dK = dK/K = rel. energy

dm = dm/m = rel. energy

dz = dq/q = rel. charge change

a = px/p0

b = py/p0

All parameters are relative

to “central ray” properties

Not defined in the figure are:

dp/p = rel. momentum

l = beam pulse length

All parameters are relative

to “central ray”

central ray

Note: Notations in the Literature is not consistent! Sorry, neither will I be.

## Transport of a ray

Ray at initial

6x6 Matrix

representing

optic element

(first order)

Note: We are not building “random” optical elements.

Many matrix elements = 0

because of symmetries, e.g. mid-plane symmetry
