Injectors and Ion Sources
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 178)
Ion injectors, i.e., sources of low-to-medium energy ions, have developed rapidly in recent years. For many years designs were dominated by the duoplasmatron coupled to expansion cups which formed an effective “cathode” for an ion accelerator. Thus, the sources, accelerators, and eventually beam transport were very closely coupled. More recently the breakdown of the elements of an injector into separate components (see Fig. 1):
has lead progressively to optimization within each component and a fuller appreciation of the interactions between them.
