ELI-Beamlines is one of the four pillars of the ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) pan-European project. It will be an ultrahigh-intensity, high repetition-rate, femtosecond laser facility whose main goals are the generation and applications of high-brightness X-ray sources and accelerated charged particles. In particular medical and multidisciplinary applications with laser-accelerated beams are treated by the ELIMED task force, a collaboration between different research institutes. A crucial goal for this network is represented by the design and the realization of a transport beamline able to provide ion beams with suitable characteristics in terms of energy spectrum and angular distribution in order to perform dosimetric tests and biological cell irradiations.
A first prototype of transport beamline has been already designed and some magnetic elements are already under construction. In particular, an Energy Selector System (ESS) prototype has been already realized at LNS-INFN. This paper reports about the studies of the ESS properties as, for instance, energy spread and transmission efficiency, carried out using the GEANT4 Monte Carlo code.
