A compact P.I.G. ion source with pulsed field and end extraction is described. The source produces multiply ionized N, C, Ne, A, Kr and Xe. Pulsed currents of C3+, N3+, Ne3+, A3+, Kr3+ , Xe6+ between a few tens of Â¿A and a few hundreds of Â¿A have been obtained. Small size and power consumption make it compatible with a Van de Graaff terminal where space and power are at a premium.
