    In electron cyclotron resonance ion sources (ECRIS), ions are produced in a highly ionized microwave heated plasma contained in a minimum-B magnetic trap. Recent experiments have revealed that the absorption of electromagnetic wave energy is accompanied by a weak ion sound turbulence, a signature of a decay instability of the electromagnetic plasma wave excited by the admitted microwave. Ions are ... View full abstract»

In this paper, the basic processes of the laser interaction with plasma generated from a solid target will be discussed. The application of the laser-plasma theory will be applied to the subsystems of the LIS, and some examples of ion beam properties given, with a more ... View full abstract»

    Old and new problems in the physics of magnetic multipole sources for the production of negative H-/D- ions are presented and discussed. We emphasize particularly, in this kind of plasmas, both the vibrational and electron nonequilibrium energy distributions, the role of Rydberg states in enhancing the negative ion production, the production of vibrationally excited states by...

    We review the evolution of volume production negative hydrogen ion sources since the discovery in 1977 of the new phenomenon, designated as volume production and attributed to dissociative electron attachment of low energy electrons to rovibrationally excited molecules. The experimental verification in 2005 of the reality of this mechanism is reported. The magnetically filtered tandem sources, usi... View full abstract»

    Various probing beams have been developed and used for plasma diagnostics in thermonuclear fusion research for magnetic confinement. The required beam current, beam size, energy, beam characteristics such as divergence, energy spread, and emittance, etc., as well as ion species are different depending on the purpose of diagnostics, target plasma size and parameters. Hydrogen beams are used for cha... View full abstract»

    Heavy ion beam driven inertial fusion requires short ion beam pulses with high current and high brightness. Depending on the beam current and the number of beams in the driver system, the injector can use a large diameter surface ionization source or merge an array of small beamlets from a plasma source. In this paper, we review the scaling laws that govern the injector design and the various ion ... View full abstract»

    The most critical demand for high-brightness ion beams emerged from the realm of industrial applications of focused ion beams and it was met by using liquid metal ion source technology. Although recognized as a successful technology, liquid metal ion sources have major limitations in view of beam species. Noncontaminating ion beam species with beam brightness comparable to liquid metal ion source,... View full abstract»
