Nuclear physics experiments performed at the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at Jefferson Laboratory (JLab) require highly polarized electron beams, produced from strained super-lattice GaAs/GaAsP photocathodes. To prolong the photocathode operational lifetime, the photogun and adjoining beamline should be maintained at the lowest possible pressure. This document describes a Wien filter spin manipulator with Penning traps incorporated along the length of the high voltage electrodes. For some spin settings, the Wien filter acts as an ion pump. Although the Wien filters at CEBAF are relatively far from the photocathode, a Wien filter spin manipulator with distributed pumping could serve to improve photocathode operating lifetime.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
