Laser-target acceleration could represent a real alternative to conventional accelerators for several applications. Therefore, beyond the improvements at the laser-target interaction level, a lot of effort has been recently devoted to the development of specific beam-transport devices in order to obtain controlled and reproducible output beams. In this framework, a contract has been signed between INFN-LNS (IT) and Eli-Beamlines-IoP (CZ) to provide the design and the realization of a complete transport beam-line, named ELIMED. The transport devices will be composed by a set of super-strong permanent magnet quadrupoles and a magnetic dipoles chicane to collect, focus and select particles within a narrow energy range. Here, the design and development of these magnetic systems is described.
