"The main goal of the proposed NEPTUNE project (“New generation of ion sources: from deep space missions to upstream nano-technologies”) is to enhance the understanding of the physics and exploit the benefits of bipolar charged particle extraction from low temperature plasma. The first NEPTUNE prototype will be built and tested during the project implementation. In the NEPTUNE prototype the generated particle beam will be quasi-neutral, composed by ions and electrons or oppositely charged ions, without the need for an additional neutralization system.
The NEPTUNE project brings together scientists who are experts in the area of formation of flows of oppositely charged particles, in order to address key fundamental issues at the leading edge of the subject: simultaneous bipolar particles extraction, space charge neutralization in complex systems and plasma - bipolar beam interactions."
