Paper Abstract

Results are presented from a pulsed volume ion source used to produce high current beams of H-. The data presented here concentrate on the dependence of beam current on extraction voltage as one of the limiting factors in achieving high current beams. Peak currents reported here range from 50 to 60 mA at energies of 80 kV. Analytical models developed for positive ion extraction have been used to interpret the data with moderate success.
