Title: CALUTRON

Abstract

An improved ion source is described for accurately presetting the size amd location of the gas and ion efflux opening. for determining the contour of the electrical field in the vicinity of the arc, and for generally improving the operation of the calutron source. The above features are accomplished by the use of a pair of electrically conductive coplanar plates mounted on opposite sides of the ion exit passage of the source ionization chamber and electrically connected to the source block. The plates are mounted on thc block for individual movement tramsversely of the exit slit and can be secured in place by clannping means.
