    The emittance of a pulsed bismuth vacuum arc ion source has been measured using a time-resolving double-slit emittance scanner. Each arc pulse was 250 µs long. Ion extraction was performed with 20 µs pulses 200 µs after arc triggering, when Bi ions are almost exclusively singly charged....

    Heavy ion fusion (HIF) drivers require large currents and bright beams. In this article we review the two different approaches for building HIF injectors and the corresponding ion source requirements. The traditional approach uses large aperture, low current density ion sources, resulting in a...

    The use of ion sources in induction linacs for heavy ion fusion is fundamentally different from their use in the rf linac-storage rings approach. Induction linacs require very high current, short pulse extraction usually with large apertures which are dictated by the injector design. One is...

    Use of high mass atomic neutral beams produced from negative ions as drivers for inertial confinement fusion has been suggested recently. Best candidates for the negative ions would be bromine and iodine with sufficiently high mass and electron affinity. These materials require a heated vapor...

    A few % wobbling-beam illumination nonuniformity is realized in heavy ion inertial confinement fusion (HIF) throughout the heavy ion beam (HIB) driver pulse by a newly introduced spiraling beam axis motion in the first two rotations. The wobbling HIB illumination was proposed to realize a...

    Secondary ions produced by 400 eV He[sup +] ion impact on N[sub 2] and O[sub 2] thin films deposited on a silicon substrate at 8 K were measured as a function of film thickness using a time-of-flight secondary-ion mass spectrometer. While the N[sup +, sub n] ions with n up to 4 were observed for...

    Sputtering yields and kinetic energy distributions (KED) of Al atomic ions ejected from a pure aluminum sample under MeV silicon ion bombardment were simulated with the molecular dynamics (MD) method. Since the electronic energy loss (S[sub e]) is much higher than the nuclear energy loss (S[sub...
