The efficient and rapid production of a high-quality, pure beam of highly charged ions is at the heart of any radioactive ion beam facility. An ECR charge breeder, as part of the Californium Rare Ion Breeder Upgrade (CARIBU) program at Argonne National Laboratory, was developed to fulfill this role. The charge breeding efficiency and high charge state production of the source were at the...

Currently, the TRIUMF facility is upgraded with ARIEL (Advanced Rare IsotopE Laboratory), which will include a new EBIS (Electron Beam Ion Source) for charge breeding of rare isotopes. Heavy elements prepared into a high charge state are required to keep the mass-to-charge ratio A/Q low, which is essential for the two post-accelerators ISAC (Isotope Separator and ACcelerator) I and II. Because...
