Title: CALUTRON ION SOURCE

Abstract

An improvement in the design of ion sources for calutrons is described. It consists of a source filament having a mounting and configuration conducive to a quick removal and change, while at the same time fully resisting the deflection force of the calutron magnetic field. The filament configuration is a helical midsection with the filament ends extending in the same direction parallel to the axis of the helix. Two gripping terminals and leads are so positioned that the filament may be slipped into transverse grooves in the terminals and secured in position adjacent a passage into the ionization chamber of the source block.
