Recent results with the mVINIS ion source
MetadataShow full item record
The mVINIS ion source is a part of the TESLA Accelerator Installation, in Belgrade. It is an ECR ion source used as a stand-alone machine delivering multiply charged ion beams to a low energy experimental channel for modification of materials (the L3A channel). In the future, it will be also used as a heavy ion injector for the VINCY Cyclotron. In this article we present the recently introduced hardware and software changes resulting in an improved operation of the mVINIS: the emittance measurement system, the inlet system for precious gases, the improved control system of the microwave generator, a new power supply for the injection stage coil, and the improved program for recording and analysis of the ion beam spectra.
