The first test beams of radioactive ions produced by the ion-guide-on-line (IGOL) system coupled to the charge-breeding electron-cyclotron-resonance ion source (CB-ECRIS) have been accelerated to high energy by the Texas A&M K500 cyclotron. The radioactive ions were first produced by energetic protons, provided by the K150 cyclotron, impinging on foil targets. Low charge-state ions were then swept by a flow of helium gas into an rf-only sextupole ion guide (SPIG) which transports them into the plasma of the CB-ECRIS. The K500 cyclotron and beam-line transport were tuned with analog beam before tuning the radioactive beam.
