Negative hydrogen ion production in a helicon plasma source

Santoso, Jesse; Manoharan, R.; O'Byrne, Sean; Corr, Cormac


In order to develop very high energy (>1 MeV) neutral beam injection systems for applications, such as plasma heating in fusion devices, it is necessary first to develop high throughput negative ion sources. For the ITER reference source, this will be realised using caesiated inductively coupled plasma devices, containing either hydrogen or deuterium discharges, operated with high rf input powers (up to 90 kW per driver). It has been suggested that due to their high power coupling efficiency,...[Show more]
