This paper reports the recent activities at JAEA for the development of 1 MeV H- ion accelerator toward the ITER NBI. For the development of MAMuG accelerator, a 320 mA H- ion beam was successfully accelerated as the highest record in the world at the MeV class energy (796 keV). This was achieved by protecting the H- ion source from the high heat load by the backstream positive ions, which was produced during the high current H- ion acceleration. The SINGAP accelerator was tested at JAEA to compare the performance of the SINGAP and the MAMuG. This paper also reports the results of the SINGAP test and the comparison between the SINGAP and the MAMuG is discussed.

    Excess heat loads to accelerator grids limit extension of pulse length in operation of the large negative ion sources with multi aperture accelerator. Part of the heat loads is caused by interception of deflected beamlets due to their space charge repulsion. In this paper, a beamlet steering...

    The direct interception of D- ion beam by the acceleration grid was reduced by modifying field shaping plates (FSPs) in JT-60 negative ion sources to inject powerful neutral beams for long pulse duration of >10 s. The modified FSPs are designed by a 3D simulation code to properly steer the...

    The beam extracted from the MEVVA ion source tends to be of a relatively high-noise level, particularly for the higher charge states, making beam transport difficult in accelerator applications. This paper presents experimental results which show that the use of grids within the ion source in...
