Derivation of Analytic Formulas for Electrostatic Deflector Aberrations, and Comparison with the Code COSY INFINITY


Analytic formulas for aberrations of an electrostatic deflector can be obtained using an iterative order-by-order perturbation method. We will derive the first and second order analytic formulas in the horizontal transverse plane x-a for an electrostatic deflector specified by the reference orbit radius, the central angle spanning the deflector, and its inhomogeneity coefficients. The derivation will be performed in a Frenet-Serret beamline coordinate system.

For the test cases of an electrostatic spherical deflector and an electrostatic cylindrical deflector, we will perform a comparison between aberrations obtained using (1) the derived analytic formulas and (2) differential-algebraic (DA) numerical integration of the equations of motion in COSY INFINITY. A comparison will be also made with the results of our earlier report [1], where we computed the DA transfer maps of electrostatic spherical and cylindrical deflectors in polar laboratory coordinates. The appendices include a C program titled edabrt for calculation of the first and second order aberrations of an electrostatic deflector, as well as the COSY INFINITY codes used for the test cases comparison.
