    In a multi-cusp ion source, magnetic boundaries, together with the difference between plasma potential and plasma chamber potential, functioned as a mass filter which filters out heavier ions in multi-component plasmas. This method was applied to mixed inert gas plasmas and hydrogen plasmas and...
