The Microgan ECR Ion Source with its compactibility and stable performance can be installed in a VAN DE GRAAF or even Tandems.
It is well suited for C60 ions till 600 nA.
Description

Microgan ECR Ion Source 10 GHZ 200 Watt - Your Choice for Fullerene Production.

Microgan is a compact ECR ion source in which the magnetic circuit is entirely made with permanent magnets both for the radial and longitudinal fields, so the total electrical power is extremely low. The weight of the source is 13 kg. Its well suited for monocharged ions production, but it has reasonable performance for relatively low charge states production. Microgan can run with RF power up to 200W (if water cooled) at 10GHz depending on the element and charge state needed. The maximum extracting voltage is 30 kV. This ion source is working in several laboratories and can also be installed in High voltage platforms, Van de Graaf or even Tandems terminals.

Microgan is well suited for production of C60 ions. A beam intensity of the order of 600 nA for C60 (1+) can be obtained with this source. The overall efficiency of ionization is of the order of 50%, for 10^13 molecules/s injection.
