Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


As a part of KEK-all ion accelerator, a compact 9.4 GHz electron cyclotron resonance ion source (ECRIS) with plasma-confining magnetic field generated by permanent magnets has been designed and fabricated for production of highly charged ions. Microwave power is transmitted from a travelling wave tube (TWT) amplifier and focused into the interaction region with an electromagnetic horn. The geometry of the electrodes has been optimized by beam optics simulations. Preliminary results of each component at the test bench are described.
