The reduced radiotoxicity and half-life of radioactive waste arisings from nuclear fusion reactors as compared to current fission reactors is one of the key benefits of nuclear fusion. As a result of the research programme at the Joint European Torus (JET), significant experience on the management of radioactive waste has been gained which will be …

A rf ion source with a large extraction area suitable for fusion applications is considered. The source is a metallic magnetic multipole bucket with an internal antenna to couple the rf (at a frequency of 2 MHz) to the plasma. The source is diagnosed by an array of Langmuir probes to measure uniformity, density, and temperature and a small probe ac…

Two designs of electron suppressor have been tested in a volume negative ion source operating dc with a large extraction aperture diameter (16 mm). Both suppressors employ magnetic fields to divert the electrons near the extraction aperture onto collector electrodes. However, while one suppressor uses a fixed field produced by permanent magnets, th…

This paper reports tests of an electron suppressor, for volume negative ion sources with variable electric and magnetic fields. The experiments have been carried out with a source and accelerator operating d.c. and with an extraction aperture of 16 mm diameter. The results are compared to those obtained with a permanent magnet suppressor and to a t…
