Abstract

We simulated a doublet of permanent magnet quadrupoles (PMQs) to estimate the sensitivity on positioning precision and its impact on the spectral properties of transported protons. The study guided the construction and testing of a focusing setup for laser-accelerated proton bunches with energies between 6 and 10 MeV. Our results shed light on possible applications that may arise from broad input particle spectra.

Keywords: Laser-ion acceleration; ion optics; permanent magnet quadrupoles
