Production of Positive Ion Beams from Solids


We have recently reported a technique for making metal ions for cyclotrons. Metal and non-metal ions from solids are produced in a Penning ion source by a process that involves ions that are unable to cross the first acceleration gap between the ion source and dee and are accelerated back into the ion source where they sputter charge material into the arc… (More)
