    For the RIKEN radio isotope factory (RIBF) project, we produced the multicharged uranium beam with two methods. To produce lower charge state U ion beams (14+–20+) we used the UF6 gas as an ionized gas. The typical beam intensity of U14+–20+ was 2–1 particle μA at the...

    Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) is the most sensitive method for measuring 129I in environmental samples available today, with a detection limit of about 10–15 for 129I/127I. A drawback of the technique is the time-consuming chemical separation required to prepare AMS targets from raw...

    High radiocarbon sample throughput is an increasingly important requirement of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) systems, which in turn requires high source output. To accomplish this, HVE AMS systems use a model SO-110B ion source, which can run at outputs of more than 200 μA 12C. It is...

    Ion sources can be damaged by arcs between metallic components of the source if these arcs are permitted to last.
