Abstract

To demonstrate ITER NBI (1 MV, 40 A) relevant beam optics in the Cadarache 1MV, 100mA test bed a new D- beam source system has been put into operation. The system retains a maximum of the ITER SINGAP key parameters, e.g. the perveance matched D- current density at 1MeV is 20mA/cm2. The accelerator parameters are identical to the ITER SINGAP design, aiming at a near parallel 1MeV beam of 5 mrad divergence. The design is aimed at also demonstrating SINGAP "on to off-axis" beam steering by a simple transverse displacement of the post- acceleration electrode. First beams up to 850 keV have been obtained after only 4 weeks of commissioning.
