In May and June 1994, using the ion beam testing equipment MARION at the Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP), a set of newly developed material samples successfully underwent a cycle test with high power density using the large surface ion beam (approx. 20 x 25 cm2). Over an 18 day period this sample set was bombarded 1,000 times with a hydrogen ion beam of 24 kilovolts, 23.5 amperes, with a power density of 1 kW/cm2 and lasting 2 seconds. The full-scale equipment achieved some 60 cycles per day and once again proved highly reliable. The experiments were done as part of a programme of collaboration between the KFA and the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP), Garching, geared to the ITER fusion project.
