A technique has been developed that defines the shapes of electrodes needed to produce a good-quality cylindrically symmetric beam of ions or electrons. This work was motivated by the need to optimize electrode shapes for a high-brightness, low-energy, deuteron injector. Our experience had indicated that correct shaping of electrodes becomes increasingly… CONTINUE READING
