An Electron Beam Ion Source charge breeder (EBIS-CB) has been developed to breed CARIBU radioactive beams at ATLAS and is in the final stages of off-line commissioning. Within the next year, the EBIS-CB will replace the existing ECR charge breeder to increase the intensity and improve the purity of reaccelerated radioactive ion beams. Integration of the new EBIS-CB requires: a. Building a compact fully electrostatic low energy beam transport line (LEBT) from CARIBU to the EBIS-CB that satisfies
more » ... S-CB that satisfies the spatial constraints and ensures the successful ion seeding into the EBIS trap. b. Modifications to the existing ATLAS LEBT to purify the EBIS beams by q/A selection and accommodate the injection of the charge bred ions into ATLAS. In this paper, we will describe the beam line design and present beam dynamics simulation results.
