Positive RF Ion Source

The NEC positive RF ion source is used on high voltage decks and single ended Pelletron Accelerators, producing over 100 μA of H and He.


The NEC positive RF ion source is ideal for use in high voltage terminals of electrostatic accelerators. It has been used primarily to produce H+ and He+ ion beams. It has also produced modest currents of:


Positive RF Ion Source Design

The NEC positive RF ion source has two unique features:




Source Performance

Running the standard positive RF ion source in a 3 MV Pelletron accelerator terminal, the source can produce an analyzed H+ beam on target of 120 μA.
