Paper Abstract

The basic features of low energy (≤ 200 keV) electrostatic accelerators for negative ion beams are described. It is shown how transmitted current and divergence depends on various parameters. Features which are specific to negative ions, such as the extraction and handling of electrons together with the problem of collisional neutralisation of the ions due to gas flow from the source, are emphasised.
