"Compact, Low-Cost, 14.5GHz All-Permanent Magnet Field ECR Ion Source";
High Energy Physics and Nuclear Physics,
A compact 14.5GHz electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) ion source for the production of slow,
multiply charged ions has been constructed, with the plasma-con ning magnetic eld produced exclusively
by permanent magnets. Microwave power of up to 175W in the frequency range from 12.75 to 14.5GHz is
transmitted from ground potential via a PTFE window into the water-cooled plasma chamber which can be
equipped with an aluminum liner. The waveguide coupling system serves also as biased electrode, and two
remotely-controlled gas inlet valves connected via an insulating break permit plasma operation in the gas-
mixing mode. A triode extraction system sustains ion acceleration voltages between 1kV and 10kV. The ECR
ion source is fully computer-controlled and can be remotely operated from any desired location via Ethernet.
