Transformation of the transverse beam intensity distribution by sextupole focusing in a transport line

We investigate the transformation of the transverse intensity distribution of a charged-particle beam focused by one or two sextupole magnets in a beam transport line. It is expected, from the equation of transverse motion, that the beam is deflected toward one direction and thus deformed due to the second-order force of the sextupole magnet. Such a sextupole-induced deformation of the beam distribution has been studied analytically in detail. The beam centroid displacement and the change of the beam size are determined using the first-order and second-order moments of the intensity distribution function. In order to verify the theoretical consideration, numerical simulations and experiments were performed at the cyclotron facility of Japan Atomic Energy Agency. We experimentally demonstrate that an ion beam with a uniform transverse distribution can be formed using two sextupole magnets.
