HIGH DUTY CYCLE ION SOURCES AT GSI AND FAIR
Future heavy ion experiments at GSI and FAIR demand for high current as well as highly brillant ion beams of various metallic and gaseous ions produced by the GSI accelerator facility. Therefore GSI’s Ion Source Group is continously developing and operating various types of ion sources feeding the UNIversal Linear ACcelerator (UNILAC). In this contribution a status overview of operated high duty cycle ion sources including important ion source data as beam current and beam spectrum as well as future perspectives for the ion source operation for FAIR is presented. more...

HIGH CURRENT ION SOURCES FOR THE FAIR ACCELERATOR FACILITY
Vacuum arc ion sources and filament driven multi cusp ion sources are used for the production of high current ion beams of a variety of metallic and gaseous ions at the GSI accelerator facility.
For the future project FAIR (Facility of Antiproton and Ion Research) it is foreseen to provide in addition to the existing ion beams a high current proton beam from a separate linear accelerator (plinac) and an exclusive high current uranium beam from a new ion source injector. The contribution gives an overview of the performance of the existing high current injector and presents the challenges for the future injectors for proton and uranium production. more...
