Reports on experiments to lower the power consumption and the development of a variety of electron beam ion sources (EBIS) or traps without the use of magnetic fields to confine the beam. Use of oscillating electrons to provide the high negative space charge necessary to increase the ion yield of an EBIS; Extraction of barium ions in a charged state.
