Proof-of-concept experiments for negative ion driver beams forheavy ion fusion

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Negative halogen ion beams have recently been proposed as heavy ion fusion drivers. They would avoid the problem of electron accumulation in positive ion beams, and could be efficiently photodetached to neutrals if desired [1]. Initial experiments using chlorine produced a current density of 45 mA/cm{sup 2} of 99.5% atomic negative Cl with an e/Cl{sup -} ratio as low as 7:1 and good emittance.
