    rf H- sources are in permanent use for accelerators such as HERA and the SNS. The stability and H- current of these sources depend very much on the transition region between plasma and extractor. The physics of the extraction plasma region was the subject of very detailed investigations with...

    The influence of magnetic filter configuration on the beam uniformity was examined to improve beam uniformity in a large Cs-seeded negative-ion source. By reducing the filter strength of the transverse magnetic field used in a typical negative-ion source, the beam uniformity was largely improved...

    The effects of the weak magnetic filed on the negative ion (H-) extraction in a negative ion source have been studied by means of a two-dimensional electrostatic particles in their self-consistent electric field. In addition, the effect of the electron diffusion across the weak magnetic field is...

    Electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) heating influences two of the main parameters (electron temperature and, indirectly, density) that determine the charge state of the ions produced in an ECR ion source (ECRIS). Therefore, various schemes to optimize ECR heating in the ECRIS have been pursued...

    The plasma potential of liquid-He-free superconducting electron cyclotron resonance ion source was measured as a function of minimum strength of mirror magnetic field (Bmin) and gas pressure with the method based on the retarding electric field. We observed that the plasma potential decreased...
