Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 04 D-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Prior to injection into a proton accelerator, GeV energy Hydrogen negative ions must be ionized with good efficiency. Presently used carbon foil strippers become radioactive and produce uncontrolled beam loss which limits the performance of high intensity proton sources. Laser assisted stripping of the electrons is an alternative method which ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Hydrogen negative ions must be ionized with high efficiency for injection into proton accelerators, such as those used at DOE facilities. To achieve this ionization, neutral atoms are first prepared by laser excitation in a relatively low-strength magnetic field, which requires megawatt peak powers. However, the carbon foil strippers that are ...
