Development of the internal Gas-Jet-Target for MAGIX
MAGIX is a planned experiment that will be implemented at the upcoming accelerator MESA in Mainz. Due to its location in the energy-recovering lane of the accelerator beam currents up to 1 mA with a maximum energy of 105 MeV will be provided for precision experiments.
MAGIX itself consists of a Jet Target and two magnet-spectrometers. The Jet-Target consists of a Laval-Nozzle and a catcher which is mounted in a high performance pumping system. This contribution is about the hydrodynamics and the technical implementation of the target system.
