Deflecting high energy proton beam

  1. Jan 9, 2012 #1
    hi everyone,

    I have a question concerning the magnets physics more precisely about the Kickers/Dipoles.

    For my work, I need to design an optical system capable of deflecting a proton beam (4 GeV) switching between to 2 angles (+ 118 mard and -118 mrad) in a raw.

    Can a pulsed magnet (or a kicker) do this if it receives alternatively a negative/positive intensity? (If no intensity, the angle would be then 0 mrad).

    do you know any experiment that uses this kind of deflector in the world?

    best regards
