A new linear accelerator Linac4 [1] is being commissioned at CERN as a part of the upgrade of their accelerator chain. A radio frequency (RF) driven type negative hydrogen H- source is used as an injector of Linac4. The Linac4 H- source must deliver 40-50 mA, 45 keV H- beam. The power transfer efficiency between the RF generator and the ion source plasma is one of the important parameters that det ... More

The significant part of any high-power neutral beam injector is the beam absorber, which serves also as a calorimeter. The power neutral beam injector operates in multimegawatt range and the peak-power densities normal to the beam axis can reach few tens kW/cm2, especially for injectors with beam focusing. With these parameters the main problem is the crisis of the heat transfer between the inner ... More

A series of Surface-Plasma negative ion Sources (SPSs) were developed and produced at BINP in the last 30 years. The energy of H- beams, delivered by SPS is varied in the region 10 - 120keV, the beam current – in the range from several mA CW up to several Amps in the long-pulsed operation [1]. A typical Power Supply system (PS) of the ion source provides the powering and controlling of SPS c ... More

The use of caesium vapour is mandatory in plasma sources for negative ion beams to achieve a sufficient negative ion density. In the SPIDER ion source, three caesium ovens will provide a sufficiently high caesium flux to the walls of the ion source, but also a relatively even caesium distribution in the ion source volume. In order to qualify the caesium ovens in terms of repeatability of the evapo ... More

Faraday shield (FS), a thin-wall metal structure with slits, is used in inductive coupled plasma (ICP) sources to protect the ceramic tube from the plasma erosion and eliminate capacitive coupling. Through the slit, electromagnetic energy is coupled into the driver to excite and sustain plasma, hence FS is an important component of ICP source. Material and structure, which has significant effect o ... More

Modeling for a longer stable production of the negative ion beams in the JT-60 negative ion source is constructed, based on the experimentally obtained temperature dependace of the cesium (Cs) adsorption/desorption. In this model, a thickness of the Cs layer on a plasma grid (PG) in this source is evaulated, because the Cs layer loweres a work function of the PG to enhance the negative ion produc ... More

Diagnostic of neutral beam (NB) profiles in powerful long-pulse injectors intended for plasma heating and current drive in fusion devices is a problem task in consequence of very high NB power density (PD) at a level of tens MW/m2. NB profiles give an information required for determination of such important parameters as the beam divergence angle and accuracy of its axis aiming onto a tokamak entr ... More

Conventional global models for plasma discharge chambers solve volume averaged continuity equations, electron and total energy equations supplemented by quasineutrality condition in order to obtain plasma components number densities and electron and heavy species temperatures. These models are limited to single chamber designs. Their main advantage is a rapid evaluation of parameter space that is ... More

D-Pace's multi-cusp ion source achieves high DC beam currents for negative hydrogen ions in both the TRIUMF licensed filament-powered ion source (~18mA) and the University of Jyväskylä licensed RF ion source (~8mA). However, the DC beam currents achieved from this source for negative deuterium ions is only 1/3 that of negative hydrogen ions. An earlier study [1] revealed that it is possible to ... More

Current fusion plasma research requires a high intensity neutral beam of either hydrogen or deuterium to heat the plasma. The intensity of the negative hydrogen (${\rm H^{-}}$) ion current extracted from an ion source chamber depends on both the plasma electrode (PE) surface material and the bias voltage against the plasma potential. The amount of the negative deuterium (${\rm D^{-}}$) ions should ... More

The complexity of the negative ion sheath is immediately evident, for several reasons: the electrons are magnetized, so that a collisionless model is clearly faulty and overoptimistic, since it neglect electron extraction (an undesired effect). As in other sheath models, the kinetic effects are important, so that the self-consistent electric potential is naturally determined by an integral equati ... More
