This spectrometer was designed to give access to a wide range of Bragg angles and crystal focal lengths while using the Rowland circle radius as a free parameter. Stability is achieved using a rigid beam or “Rowland chord,” which provides a reference axis for all the critical alignments, the chord length being variable between about 0.2 and 5 m…

This paper presents the results of experimental studies on a number of different ' current carrying wire' type first grid electron suppressors: or ' inserts', as they shall be called throughout this paper. Extracted negative ion currents are compared for the different inserts over a range of field strengths. Currents are also compared to those extr…

Experiments performed in a volume production negative ion source show that the use of a tent or supercusp magnetic filter leads to a more uniform plasma at the normal extraction plane than that obtained with a dipole filter. For the tent filter geometry the extracted negative ion current density, increased as the accelerator was moved into the sour…

When a suitable accelerating voltage is applied to extract negative ions from a volume production source, electrons are also extracted. If no means of suppression is utilized, the electron current in a hydrogen plasma would typically be of the order of 80-100 times the negative-ion current. In the accelerator designs in use at Culham Laboratory, el…
