Details of FREEMAN ION Source

  1. Oct 29, 2012 #1
    I am searching on freeman ION SOURCE for my BS thesis. I have lots of problem about the material of the FREEMAN ION SOURCE and sizes of all the part to have the best design and better beam density. I need some details. Any help would be appreciated.

    There are several textbooks on Ion Sources, but they tend to be rather expensive.
    from The Physics and Technology of Ion Sources, 2nd, Revised and Extended Edition, Ian G. Brown (Editor), Wiley, October 2004 - US$300

    Sample from text - http://books.google.com/books?id=jOlKdGPBpD0C&pg=PA134&

    Paper - "Ion Sources For Commercial Ion lmplanter Applications" mentions Freeman sources

    I really appreciate for your replay. I have got this book that is great but it did not mention for sort of details such as what is the best length of FILAMENT or the best distance between chamber and filament and the best element for using in arc chamber.
    thank you
