Title: Production of multicharged metal ion beams on the first stage of tandem-type ECRIS

Abstract

Multicharged metal ion beams are required to be applied in a wide range of fields. We aim at synthesizing iron-endohedral fullerene by transporting iron ion beams from the first stage into the fullerene plasma in the second stage of the tandem-type electron cyclotron resonance ion source (ECRIS). We developed new evaporators by using a direct ohmic heating method and a radiation heating method from solid state pure metal materials. We investigate their properties in the test chamber and produce iron ions on the first stage of the tandem-type ECRIS. As a result, we were successful in extracting Fe{sup +} ion beams from the first stage and introducing Fe{sup +} ion beams to the second stage. We will try synthesizing iron-endohedral fullerene on the tandem-type ECRIS by using these evaporators.

  • We have been constructing the tandem-type electron cyclotron resonance ion source (ECRIS). Two ion sources of the tandem-type ECRIS are possible to generate plasma individually, and they also confined individual ion species by each different plasma parameter. Hence, it is considered to be suitable for new materials production. As the first step, we try to produce and extract multicharged C{sub 60} ions by supplying pure C{sub 60} vapor in the second stage plasma because our main target is producing the endohedral fullerenes. We developed a new evaporator to supply fullerene vapor, and we succeeded in observation about multicharged C{sub 60}more » ion beam in tandem-type ECRIS for the first time.« less
  • From April 2008 the PIAVE injector for the ALPI booster was involved in the upgrade of the high voltage platform housing an electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) source. A 14.5 GHz SUPERNANOGAN type ECR replaced the existing source ALICE; at the same time, the whole platform beam line was redesigned and beam shaping and diagnostic system were installed. The source and the platform were ready to be put into operation in January 2009. PIAVE's commissioning was started from late March and completed in May 2009 using an argon beam. A description of the upgrade will be given in the following; beammore » quality leading to an improved transmission through the injector will be shown. Results on first gaseous and metallic beams produced will also be given.« less
  • An experiment is described in which a beam of fast neutral atoms was injected into the terminal of a tandem accelerator. A second tandem was arranged in line with the first. By taking advantage of charge-exchange mechanisms these atoms were accelerated to 15 Mev by a three-stage process. (auth)
  • We show how paraboloidal mirrors of short focal ratio and similar systems can have their flux concentration enhanced to near the thermodynamic limit by the addition of nonimaging compound elliptical concentrators.
