Abstract

The design, construction, and operation of the electrostatic quadrupoles used in the muon (g - 2) experiment E821 of BNL are described in detail. A new lead design allowed the construction of a very reliable system which could operate for hundreds of thousands pulses with no sparking. The new design also made possible the elimination of systematic errors associated with the E, B fields generated by the low energy trapped electrons present in Penning traps under medium vacuum conditions.
