Title: Ion producing mechanism

Abstract

This patent pertains to calutrons and more particularly to means for introducing gas at selected points in the arc chamber of a calutron source to remedy unsteadiness in the arc. The disclosed ion source has a baffle at the gas entrance in the arc chamber for directing part of the gas flow toward the anode end of the chamber. The resulting arc is much steadier, resulting in an ion beam of increased current.
