Volume 3, Issue 4 , October 2022, , Pages 1-5


  A continuous-wave solid-state-based power amplifier is designed and simulated in this paper to work as an RF injector into an ECR ion source chamber. Employing a solid-state radio frequency power amplifier, instead of microwave tubes, leads to having higher efficiency, lower price, compact size, and ...  Read More

Analysis and design of a 2.45 GHz RF power source for a miniature electron cyclotron resonance ion source

Volume 3, Issue 3 , July 2022, , Pages 7-15


  A high-power solid-sate based radio frequency power source is introduced in this paper. Solid-state based amplifiers are much more efficient than microwave tubes and can be used in compact electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) ion sources. A reliable negative bias voltage controller is proposed to drive ...  Read More
