Abstract
Guided by simulations using SIMION 8.1, a series of modifications were made to an experimental version of an Isobar Separator for Anions (ISA). The resulting improved version of the ISA provides a means of re-energizing the ions after they are cooled by gas collisions as they pass through the gas-filled radiofrequency quadrupoles (RFQ), and also provides higher transmission efficiencies. Reinvestigation of the separation of CaF3 and KF3 with this refined apparatus resulted in a better balance between isobar suppression and analyte transmission. KF3 was attenuated at eV energies by 4 orders of magnitude while 40% transmission of CaF3 was retained, for a 20keV CaF3 beam of 2mm and ±12mr. These results advance the possibility of an efficient small ISA-AMS system for both cosmogenic and medical applications of 41Ca.
