Boron ions can be implanted not only in semiconductors such as silicon wafers but also in other materials and metal products, e.g., machine parts and tools, to increase their surface properties and therefore lifetime. The purity of boron ion beams for these purposes is not so critical as for semiconductor technologies. Here, we present experimental results on the generation of pulsed boron ion beams in vacuum arc and planar magnetron ion sources with pure boron and lanthanum hexaboride cathodes with emphasis on the mass-charge state composition of the ion beams.
