The European programme on negative ion beam development
The European Programme on Negative Ion Beam development currently consists of three main tasks: (i) the DRAGON experiment starting at Culham, with the objective of accelerating 4 A of D(-) to 200 keV; (ii) the conceptual study of a 1 MV, 15 A power supply, conducted in European industry under the supervision of Cadarache; (iii) the design study of a 1 MV, 4 A, deuterium test bed at Cadarache, conducted by the Euratom-CEA Association (Cadarache) with support from the Euratom-UKAEA Association (Culham) and the FOM-Institute (Amsterdam). The conclusions of these three tasks are to be brought together during the first half of 1992, in order to prepare a proposal for a 1 MV, 4 A, deuterium test bed. Other experimental activities are being conducted in European laboratories, either directly related to the main programme (RF source and plasma neutraliser at Culham; discharge pulsing at Dublin and FOM-Amsterdam) or under separate contracts (energy recovery and caesium seeding at Cadarache).
