A high frequency ion source was developed for use in constant voltage accelerators. Analyzed proton beams of several hundred microamperes were produced in a 130 kv accelerating system designed to simulate the initial sections of a high voltage accelerator.
The focusing properties of constant voltage accelerating systems are discussed, including the effects of space-charge in the initial accelerating electrodes. The focal properties of multi-cylinder accelerating columns are calculated.
The high intensity proton beam produced by the ion source and 130 kv accelerator was used to investigate the [...] reaction, which is of importance in the understanding of stellar phenomena. A cross-section of [...] was measured at bombarding energies of 100 kev.
