ABSTRACT
Grenoble Test Source (GTS) is a room temperature electron cyclotron resonance ion source whose purpose is to deepen the knowledge of this type of device. GTS was designed according to magnetic scaling laws determined with the SERSE source [Hitz et al., Rev. Sci. Instrum. 73, 509 (2002); Gammino et al., ibid. 72, 4090 (2001)] while keeping enough flexibility in terms of magnetic confinement and rf heating to determine best conditions for the production of intense beams of any charge state. First results were presented 1 year ago [Hitz et al., 8th European Particle Accelerator Conference, 2002; 15th International Workshop on ECR Ion Sources, 2002]. Since then, some improvements have been performed mostly in the magnetic confinement, beam extraction and analysis. Updated ion beam intensities are presented: e.g., 0.5 mA of Ar11+ at 18 GHz, 20 μA of Ar16+ and 1.8 μA of Ar17+ when GTS is operated at 14.5 GHz. On the other hand, charge coupled device imagers have been installed to diagnose and monitor the ion beam and some beam images are shown. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
