Abstract:
Rare isotopes are the new frontier for fundamental studies in nuclear physics but also for medical application for the diagnosis and treatment of tumors. Rare isotopes have been produced at TRIUMF since the late nineties. A new facility, ARIEL, will increase such production three fold.

One critical step in the delivery of such rare isotopes is the separation and selection. The production includes isobars with mass difference smaller than one part in many thousands. In order to select a desired isotope produced in the new facility, a new generation mass separator system has been developed capable of discriminating a mass difference of one part in twenty thousand.

The thesis work consists in the design of a high performance magnetic dipole that is the core component of the separator system. One key achievement is a magnetic field variation of few parts per million.
