Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources: State of the Art

Denis Hitz, Commissariat ŕ l’Energie Atomique,Grenoble
6008 Conference Room

Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources (ECRIS) of highly charged ions are widely used for many applications. Depending on the application, ECRIS have now to cope with new beam requirements: intense flux of medium charge states and/or very high charge states are asked by users. In addition, these sources have to be stable, reliable and could be installed on high voltage platforms. These requirements lead to large volume, high magnetic field devices while keeping a low electrical consumption. Through a discussion about main parameters of an ECRIS, this presentation deals with the present state of the art of ECRIS. Special emphasis will be done on updated scaling laws for the magnetic configuration required for an efficient ECRIS.
