The first edition of this title has become a well-known reference book on ion sources. The field is evolving constantly and rapidly, calling for a new, up-to-date version of the book. In the second edition of this significant title, editor Ian Brown, himself an authority in the field, compiles yet again articles written by renowned experts covering various aspects of ion source physics and technology. The book contains full chapters on the plasma physics of ion sources, ion beam formation, beam transport, computer modeling, and treats many different specific kinds of ion sources in sufficient detail to serve as a valuable reference text.In the USA, the approach is to use induction linacs because of their efficiency in accelerating high current beams and their unique capability with respect to longitudinal beam compression. ... long pulse sources; whereas ion sources for induction linacs are required to produce high current in short pulses. ... Figure 15.1 shows a block diagram of a typical heavy ion fusion driver using induction linacs .
