HYbrid Recoil mass Analyzer (HYRA) is a dual mode, dual stage spectrometer
/ separator with its first stage capable of operating in gas-filled mode in
normal kinematics (to access heavy nuclei around 200 amu mass and beyond)
and both stages in vacuum mode in inverse kinematics (to access nuclei
around N ~ Z up to 100 amu mass and to provide light, secondary beams
produced in direct reactions). This unique device is being commissioned
in beam hall II, downstream of the superconducting linear accelerator,
at Inter University Accelerator Centre.
The first stage of HYRA, consisting of Q1Q2-MD1-Q3-MD2-Q4Q5, is operable
with momentum dispersion in gas-filled mode operation or as a momentum
achromat in vacuum mode operation. The second stage consists of
Q6Q7-ED-MD3-Q8Q9, which gives rise to mass dispersion by the cancellation
of energy dispersion at a fixed focal point. Thus, the electromagnetic
configuration of complete HYRA is Q1Q2-MD1-Q3-MD2-Q4Q5-Q6Q7-ED-MD3-Q8Q9.
