We have been studying a new heavy-ion production technique called “direct plasma injection scheme,” DPIS, since 2000. A new radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) designed especially for the DPIS was commissioned in 2004 and very intense carbon beam was successfully obtained, reaching more than 60 mA accelerated current from the RFQ. Most of the contents of the accelerated beam was carbon 4+ as verified by beam analysis.

    To accelerate highly charged intense ion beam, we have developed the direct plasma injection scheme (DPIS) with laser ion source. In this scheme an ion beam from a laser ion source is injected directly to a radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) linac without a low energy beam transport (LEBT) line...

    Efficient primary ion sources at ISOL facilities normally produce singly charged ions. This limits the usable mass range for postacceleration due to the A/Q acceptance of the accelerator. At the ISAC facility at TRIUMF an A/Q below 7 is desired to avoid further stripping. Thus, charge state...

    A new method for accelerating proton beams, based on the use of intense and short laser pulses, is presented. It is shown that by focusing an ultrashort laser pulse onto a thin foil target, a proton beam with energy up to tens of MeV is produced. Due to the original properties of these beams...

    The design and operation of a Lamb-shift polarimeter is discussed. This polarimeter is used to measure the polarization of proton and deuteron beams extracted from the KVI polarized-ion source. The major components of the Lamb-shift polarimeter (LSP) are described in some detail. These include...
