    A special dual function collar and getter strip holder subassembly was placed around the aperture of an rf-driven multicusp source. With the source at 35 kV, and the rf pulsing at 24 kW for 1 ms at 1 Hz, the cesium in the getter strips was dispensed gradually over a half hour. No high-voltage...

    Addition of cesium vapor to H[sup -]/D[sup -] multicusp volume sources has been shown to result in significantly increased extracted ion current density. However, using a cesium oven, the initial introduction of Cs vapor causes high-voltage breakdowns that persist for exterided periods. In the...
