Paper Abstract

The increase in the beam energy spread <AE> of liquid metal ion sources with particle mass (rn) and current (I) is analyzed in terms of the pairwise coulomb interactions of particles emitted from a spherical emitter according to Poisson statistics. According to model calculations <AE> cc m1/4 11/2 which agrees with experimental results. In addition, a shift in the average energy of the particles due to the mutual interactions is predicted by the model calculations.
