AN APPARATUS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF A NEUTRAL HYDROGEN BEAM IN THE ENERGY RANGE OF 10 TO 1000 MEV
A beam of negative hydrogen or deuterium ions with an energy of 1 keV is extracted from an ion source. This beam can be decelerated down to 10 eV and is crossed through the resonator of a Nd-YAG laser. Due to photodetachment in the laser, a measurable part of the negative ion beam is neutralized. The resulting neutral beam of up to 1 nA is used for calibrating detection devices for fast neutral atoms.
