T.; Schlachter, A. S.; Leung, K. N.; Kunkel, W. B. // Review of Scientific Instruments;Jan1990, Vol. 61 Issue 1, p424 

    Using vacuum ultraviolet laser-absorption spectroscopy, the H° density and temperature are measured as a function of discharge current and H[sub 2]-gas flow in both the plasma column and the drift region between the plasma column and the emitter in the 4X source. For typical source operating...

    Negative hydrogen (H-) ion beam was produced without cesium seeding by a Bernas-type ion source with a coaxial hot cathode. The amount of H- ion beam current extracted from an original Bernas-type ion source using a hairpin shape filament as a hot cathode was 1 μA with the 0.4 A arc current,...

    A new negative ion extraction geometry with streaming neutral gas injector (SNGI) was tested in its performance to enhance negative hydrogen ion (H-) at low operational pressure. The experiments were performed using a test ion source equipped with a SNGI having the wall perpendicular to the gas...
