Abstract (Summary)

A new external microprobe beamline for irradiation experiments has been commissioned and constructed at the Louisiana Accelerator Center. This microprobe was designed to use the Oxford Triplet lens configuration with no scanning system. The beamline was designed to allow for the post focus expansion of the ion beam to create an even filed of current distribution at a sample. The samples are irradiated in air in a glove box so that a Biosaftey-Level 2 (BSL-2) environment is created, reducing risk of contamination for biological sample irradiation. The nature of a microprobe allows the flux, and therefore the dose, to be sufficiently low for space radiation studies. The beamline was designed using WinTRAX and constriction has been completed. This thesis is an overview of what a microprobe is, how the new microprobe was designed, and how the beamline was constricted.
