Title: New method of high brightness ion extraction based on bias electrode

Abstract

It is well known that beam brightness can be enhanced with smaller extraction aperture in plasma ion sources. Reducing aperture size to micrometer scale, however, decreases beam currents significantly since the extraction field cannot be penetrated into the plasma source. In this article, a novel extraction method based on bias electrode is proposed and demonstrated by observing the existence of high current mode with 100 {mu}m aperture diameter. Ion current with a positively biased electrode is increased by an order of magnitude from that of the nonbiased case. Locally converging electrons near positively biased electrode are thought to be the main cause of the high current mode.
