    We have constructed a rf plasma sputter-type heavy negative ion source, which can deliver high current negative ion beams such as Cu[sup -] of 12.1 mA, Si[sup -] of 3.8 mA, and B[sup -, sub 2] of 1 mA in dc operation mode. In our source, the estimated negative ion production probability of Cu...

    The use of electron injection into rf plasma of the radial extraction rf ion source improves the beam brightness due to the decrease of electron temperature of the plasma. Also, an emphasis was given to other factors that affect beam brightness such as aberration in the extraction cathode lens...

    Distribution of cesium in large negative ion beam sources to be operational in ITER, is presently based on the use of three or more cesium ovens, which operate simultaneously and are controlled remotely. However, use of multiple Cs ovens simultaneously is likely to pose difficulties in operation...
