Abstract:The development of a large-area RF source for negative hydrogen ions, an official EFDA task agreement, is aiming at demonstrating ITER-relevant ion source parameters. This implies a current density of 20 mA/cm 2 accelerated Dions at a source filling pressure of ≤ 0.3 Pa and an electron to ion ratio of ≤ 1 from a PINI-size extraction area for pulse lengths of up to 1 hour. The work is progressing along three lines in parallel: (i) optimisation of current densities at low pressure and electron/ion ratio, utilisi…
